TODAY Style Editor and all around Professional Girlfriend Bobbie Thomas highlights the latest in summer skincare.
Stuff We Love
Just in time for summer, Sephora is offering what is said to be the first aerosol spray-on pore-filling primer. Translation? It goes on lightly to smooth skin's appearance and help set makeup in place for up to eight hours in the heat ($22, sephora.com). Also hitting shelves is Supergoop's 3-in-1 Defense Refresh Setting Mist, which sets makeup as well and provides the added bonus of built-in sun protection with SPF 50. And unlike most sunscreens, Supergoop's spray can easily be reapplied without messing up your makeup ($12, supergoop.com).
Two skin care lines with cult followings are launching breakthrough formulas with broad-spectrum SPF 50 this season. SkinCeuticals' new Physical Matte UV Defense works triple time as a tinted primer with just a touch of color, an oil-absorber and a sunscreen all in one ($34, skinceuticals.com). Dr. Dennis Gross' latest release, Dark Spot Sun Defense, is changing the game for anyone who experiences hyperpigmentation in the form of dark spots. The formula reduces the appearance of discolorations, fine lines and wrinkles while also protecting against sun damage with SPF 50 ($42, dgskincare.com).
SPF Addict's sunscreen clothing is a non-sticky and non-greasy alternative to daily sun protection. Made from eucalyptus wood, the Tencel Sun fabric provides a rating of UPF 50+ (in case you were wondering, traditional fabrics have an approximate UPF rating of 5 to 10). The collection of work-to-weekend tops, dresses, pants, skirts, scarves and more helps block 98 percent of harmful sun rays that can cause skin cancer and premature aging ($25 & up, SPFaddict.com).
