Fall is on the horizon, and the change of season serves as an impetus not just to swap out featherweight sundresses for crisp blazer and jeans, but also to recalibrate your beauty regimen. And while nabbing a new glimmering bronze eyeliner or amped up mascara feels like a natural top priority—and for good reason—it's essential to continue shielding yourself from the UV rays you’ve been skirting this summer. "The effects of sun exposure are cumulative and it’s absolutely essential to wear sunscreen all year long,” explains New York City dermatologist Whitney Bowe, M.D.. "Every day counts."
Fall days may not seem as bright, after all, but the sun's rays penetrate through clouds, as well as car and office windows—contributing to fine lines, wrinkles, brown spots, and, eventually, sagging, says Bowe. But while wearing sunscreen everyday is non-negotiable, you can be a bit more flexible when it comes to selecting the right one for the season and your particular needs.
For one, the humidity levels begin to drop in September, so your skin will crave creamier, more hydrating hybrid formulas like Giorgio Armani's Maestro UV Skin Defense Primer Sunscreen SPF 50 and La Roche Posay's Anthelios SX Moisturizer with Sunscreen SPF 15. Or, there are airy, subtly-tinted options that deposit just the right amount of coverage with a flawless finish, such as Marie Veronique's Everyday Coverage Tinted Sunscreen SPF 30 and Dr. Dennis Gross' Instant Radiance Sun Defense SPF 40. And then there's Mila Moursi's cult formula, which goes on completely clear, and thus is a great option for women with darker skin tones or who are ultra-conscious of avoiding traces of chalky residue before makeup.
For protection on the go, Colorscience's Sunforgettable Brush-On Shield SPF 50 is tailor-made for touch ups in a pinch. Here, a roster of hardworking formulas to safeguard your face this fall.
