Three Easy Ways to Sneak an SPF Into Your Beauty Routine

Most people who have an aversion to sunscreen just haven't figured out the right way to incorporate it into their beauty routine. Luckily, getting that SPF protection no longer means gooping on a layer of pore-clogging, impossible-to-wear-makeup-over sunscreen every morning. To help out, I've come up with three easy ways to sneak some sun protection into your day.

For acne prone skin like mine, I use clinique city block oil-free with light tint, then laura mercier oil free primer, then mufe mat velvet, mufe hd powder, and I'm set for 12 hours...even lasted through a hot humid Florida wedding.

I use the Bare Minerals SPF 15 Foundation-- it's natural and I don't have to slather on the oily sunscreen. Seems to work for me. The minerals actually reflect the sunlight-- so much so that I can tell when a camera's flash bounced off my face in a photo.

I've got it covered from my moisturizer to my primer, to my powder foundation! Atleast I know I'm on the right track. :)

SPF is a must in order to prevent premature aging (fine lines, wrinkles, sagging skin)...

I LOVE MY LORAC PROTECTINT !!! I have it in Dare to Bare the lightest shade. It's oil free and awesome. Laura Mercier's tinted moisture is good coverage but leaves my skin dry and bobbi brown's spf 25 skin tint is too heavy and not enough coverage. I love LORAC.

being extremely fair as well as prone to oily, shiny skin, i also like this powdered sunblock-in-a-tube by peter thomas roth: Totally self-contained, invisible, and takes the edge off my shiny forehead. has anyone tried the SPF version of the smashbox primer? i'm curious, but have mixed feelings about primers...

Hootie - try DML Daily Facial Moisturizer Spf 25. My face is super sensitive (even cetaphil irritates the heck out of it) as a result of years of brining out the heavy artillery against acne - so now i'm all sensitive and red and have acne - it's fab. I was looking for a moisturizer with spf that wouldn't irritate or make me break out - am about six weeks into using this one and it's been great so far. It is Non-comedogenic; Hypoallergenic; Water Resistant; Unscented; Amino Benzoic Acid (PABA) free avail at

I think most of my makeup and moisturizers have SPF in them. Too fair not too! Hootie - I'm planning to try Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Touch. Maybe that will work for you as well. My skin is sensitive and acne-prone and I've heard good things about that sunscreen.

I have really reactive/sensitive skin these days due to laser treatments. I'm looking for a good daily SPF that won't cause breakouts. Thanks.

I live in Florida so I try to make sure most aspects of my make-up have SPF --- my MAC prep+prime has SPF 50 and my liquid foundation has SPF 15!
