There are no ifs, ands or buts about it — applying sunscreen is an absolute MUST. We're talking a nonnegotiable skin care step that you simply cannot skip. But here's the other (very important) part of the sun protection puzzle: Reapplication, which you really should be doing every two hours. And as militant as we are about sunscreen, reapplying that often seems, TBH, unattainable and unrealistic. That's where sunscreen powders come in. A quick dusting will give you the protection you need, without messing up your makeup, making powders choice for touch-ups throughout the day. (Not to mention that because they're powders, they also help tamp down unwanted mid-day shine.) Pro tip: To make sure you're fully shielding your skin from the sun, swipe an even coating across your entire face, twice. Check out eight of our favorite sunscreen powders here.
This cult classic was recently reformulated to protect your complexion not only from the sun's UVA and UVB rays but also from infrared radiation and blue light emitted by your phone and computer screens (both of which can also be damaging to your skin, FYI). Plus, the bristles are now anti-microbial and it offers the highest SPF of the bunch.
The matte finish of this translucent powder makes it a perfect pick for anyone whose skin veers towards oily. Also nice: It's infused with vitamins C and E for added antioxidant protection, always a good thing.
Refillable powder cartridges plus a removable, easy-to-wash brush head mean you'll have this option forever. True to its name, this powder is water- and sweat-resistant for up to 40 minutes, a great choice for using before an outdoor workout.
Take your pick from a translucent option or three different shades; either way, you won't be able to get enough of this silky soft powder. Matte yet non-drying, it leaves behind the perfect satin finish. Selfie queens will appreciate that it also doesn't cause any of that weird camera flashback, either.
