Even if you’re a bit of a sunscreen slacker during the cooler months, everyone needs some sort of SPF in the summer — yes, even on those cloudy days. The easiest way to incorporate sun protection into your routine is by using a daily moisturizer with SPF. Olay Complete Defense SPF 30 Daily UV Moisturizer, $14 at drugstore.com, is one of our favorites for providing protection in a quick-absorbing sheer formula. For something with a bit more coverage, try Dr. Brandt Tinted Daily UV Protection SPF 30, $30 at sephora.com, which has a subtle bronze hue. Those who prefer sheer — but not totally bare — should go for Dove’s Energy Glow Skin Brightening Facial Moisturizer, $9 at drugstore.com, which has just a hint of radiance. La Roche-Posay Anthelios SX Daily Moisturizing Cream SPF 15, $29 at skinelite.com, is this season’s scientific favorite — the incredibly hydrating cream contains the super-potent (and newly U.S. approved) UVA filter Mexoryl.
