Any beauty die-hard has probably heard an earful about the importance of sunscreen. Dermatologists are constantly stressing its effectiveness in keeping your skin safe from sun damage and more. And yes, American Academy of Dermatology says that a good broad-spectrum sunscreen product helps protect the skin from the sun's harmful UVA and UVB rays, which can lead to skin cancer if you aren't careful...
Thankfully, many skin care staples already contain built-in sunscreen; many moisturizing creams and lotions already contain the AAD's recommended daily amount of SPF 30 and higher. And you know what? Many of our favorite makeup products also contain SPF nowadays: Everything from lip treatments, to CC creams, to tinted moisturizers!
So, to bring the best SPF-infused makeup products to the forefront, we're spotlighting our ten must-haves. From foundation to eyeshadow (yes, really), below are some of our favorite makeup bag essentials that will keep you ready for anything your workday has in store.
