Do I still need to wear sunscreen after Summer?

For most of us, Summer and SPF go hand-in-hand. But what about SPF in the Fall or even Winter? Do you still need to wear sunscreen after Summer?

 Short answer: Yes! 100% yes.

Just because your skin doesn’t feel like it’s burning in the colder months doesn’t mean it isn’t at risk. UV rays know no seasons or barriers, and can affect your skin year round, no matter if it’s sunny or cloudy, hot or cold. Which is why it’s essential to continue applying SPF beyond Summer.

This is especially true now as we all try to safely interact during Covid. For a lot of us, that means spending more time outdoors with friends, going for hikes, having picnics in the park or just relaxing on a back porch. Even students heading back to school may find themselves seated outside for class. So even as Summer comes to an end, it’s more important than ever to be mindful of the UV exposure your skin is getting.

In order to ensure you’re staying protected at all times, we’ve rounded up 4 super simple ways to keep your skin safe beyond Summer. Our suggestion? Go for the glow with our tinted formulas! Thanks to their glowy finish, you can keep that sunkissed tint going all year round (but without the damaging side effects of a real tan!).


 For your body + face…

Mineral Tinted Creme SPF 30

This uniquely silky mineral formula blends like a dream into all fair/medium skin tones and leaves you with a smooth, filter-like finish. Packed with clean and natural ingredients - powerful antioxidants, Vitamin C + E, green tea, and cranberry + pomegranate extracts - it also nourishes your skin. Apply daily for broad-spectrum SPF 30 protection, and skin that exudes a youthful, healthy glow.

For your face…

MD Mineral BB Creme SPF 50

Swap out your regular makeup primer for our ultra-creamy BB Creme. Its tinted formula comes in two shades - light and medium - that are sheer enough to look natural but provide enough coverage to conceal redness from Melasma/Rosacea. It also provides the ultimate skin-loving trifecta:

  1. A natural-looking matte finish for the perfect no-makeup look
  2. Anti-aging benefits thanks to nourishing ingredients, such as de-puffing caffeine and brightening niacinamide
  3. Broad-spectrum SPF 50 protection that can even be reapplied over makeup throughout the day. For some, our BB Creme has enough coverage to be used in place of make up or foundation.

For your lips…

Tinted Lip Balm SPF 30

Another incredible swap for your regular makeup routine, use this in place of your usual lipsticks or lip balms for daily protection. Made in a range of 5 shades, from sheer and glowy to dark and show-stopping, there’s a perfect color for everyone… no matter your skin tone! Apply throughout the day to give lips SPF 30 protection, major hydration (thanks to shea, avocado and olive butters), plus a soft, supple finish and a great tint (great for cheeks too).

For on the go…

Tinted Solar Stick SPF 40

If you’re spending time outside, reapplying is a must! Keep this portable stick with you for powerful + sheer protection at a moment’s notice. Its hands-free application glides on silky-smooth without white cast, which is perfect if you don’t have a mirror on hand. Use it on your lips, cheeks, nose, forehead, ears, shoulders - wherever the sun touches! - to prevent sunburn and damage to overexposed skin.
