As summer approaches, it’s time to lather up with sunscreen. No matter the temperature or even the amount of sun shining, it is always important to at least put on some SPF protection if you are planning on going outside; even if it is just for 15 minutes. If you are ever wondering how much protection you should put on, you can always check the UV index in your area which will tell you how powerful the UV rays are in your area. The best times to wear sun protection are between 9 am to 5 pm. No matter how important sunscreen is, sometimes it can be a pain, it can make your skin feel oily and greasy and can make your makeup run. However, sunscreen products have come a long way since our moms would lather us head to toe making us covered in white residue. SPF products are now more compatible with makeup and make it easy to include in our everyday skin routine. One product version of SPF that is more accessible is facial sprays. Not only do they provide SPF protection but they include ingredients that help protect makeup and rejuvenate your skin with hydration. Below are some of the best facial sprays that provide SPF protection, hydration, and more!
