4 SPF Superstars You Should Be Using Year-Round

September 15, 2019

Can you believe that our long, sunny summer days are almost over? While you might be swapping out your denim shorts for that chunky knit sweater and your iced coffee for that PSL, protecting your skin from the sun is something you should do all year long. Luckily our friends from Coola are here to share 4 products you should be including in your skincare routine, no matter the season.

Facial SPF with Blue Light Protection

For most of us, our current M-F consists of the daily hustle to achieve our professional and personal goals. Your day-to-day might look like this: Wake up, grab coffee, head into the office, enjoy lunch al fresco with a coworker, crush a workout at The Bar Method and then cook up a healthy dinner at home. So why should you include SPF in your year-round skincare routine? No matter the season, we encounter damaging effects from pollution, UVA, UVB, HEV blue light, and IR exposure throughout each day. For example, walking from your car into the office and sitting in front of a computer screen can expose you to sun, digital and environmental damage.

Don’t go live under that rock just yet, Coola’s Full Spectrum 360º Sun Silk Drops SPF 30 are here to save your “every day”! Our Full Spectrum 360 ̊ technology featured in our Sun Silk Drops is a proprietary blend of supercharged antioxidants and plant-derived actives – all at active levels – that are clinically shown to help mitigate the skin damage from exposure to blue light, infrared and pollution. Complexion protection is crucial for anyone on the daily grind looking to keep their skin healthy, radiant and youthful all year-round. Plus, it wears AMAZING under makeup!

Tip: Don’t forget your neck, decallotage and the back of your hands!

Lip Balm with SPF

Aside from the skin around our eyes, our lips are one of the first areas of skin to show signs of aging. Over time, sun exposure can destroy collagen production in our lips, which eventually makes the skin on our lips thinner. To keep your lips looking full and youthful, we highly suggest wearing a nourishing lip balm with at least an SPF 30 for daily protection.

Our Mineral Liplux® is perfect for daily wear with SPF 30 mineral protection and a hint of tint. Organic Cupuaçu Butter and Mongongo Oil deliver an ultra-creamy texture that smooths and nourishes lips while keeping them hydrated, so they look healthy, plump, and youthful. This formula is also available in 6 different shades that are perfect for all skin tones and seasons. Lip, lip, hooray for beautiful, healthy lips year-round! 

Beauty hack: This also works double-duty as blush or a cheek highlighter.

Facial Spray with Sunscreen

“I applied my SPF this morning at 8AM, so I’m good for the rest of the day, right?” Not so much. Sun damage is cumulative (meaning it can add up) and even “here and there” exposure can lead to wrinkles, pigmentation and even skin cancer.

We recommend our SPF 30 Organic Makeup Setting Spray to reapply SPF over makeup, skincare or whatever your facial situation might be that day! This is perfect for babes on-the-go who need a 2pm pick-me-up of SPF (and maybe some coffee). Plus, this formula features Hyaluronic Acid, Cucumber and Aloe Vera extracts to refresh, rehydrate and calm skin which is perfect for the dry fall weather. Throw this baby in your purse, gym bag or travel bag and you won’t know how you got through life without it!

Hydrating, Nourishing Body Lotion

Even though the upcoming season might have you wearing layers upon layer, it’s still important to keep your skin healthy underneath. Plus, the holiday season is just around the corner and why not give your skin a little extra glow for that off-the-shoulder holiday party dress? After all, hydrated, nourished skin makes for healthy, beautiful skin. 

Our Environmental Repair Plus Radical Recovery After Sun Lotion delivers powerful antioxidants and nourishing, soothing ingredients. A moisture-locking base of Organic Agave and Aloe Vera is enriched with antioxidant and vitamin-intensive boosters – including Rosemary Extract and the nurturing oils of Lavender, Sunflower, Sweet Orange and Mandarin Peel, along with purifying Cedarwood. Trust us, you might find yourself applying this lotion morning, noon and night for its deep, luxurious hydration and relaxing scent. Keep your skin glowing year-round with this globally curated masterpiece!
