Sun Chasers

Written & Photographed by A Wild Dove


Summer may be as faded as your tan-lines, but that doesn’t mean it’s time to shelve the sunscreen. Ask any skincare expert and they’ll tell you that sunblock is a 365 day a year gamechanger for youthful, vibrant skin. Sure, you can stop by the local pharmacy and pick up any brand touting UVA protection, but as we age, it’s crucial to treat our SPF the same way we would our most prized moisturizers or serums. As the temps cool down, here is a roundup of our favorite sun-protecting products, for any time of year. Now all we need is a cashmere scarf and some sunnies and we’re good to go. 


GoldFaden MD Sun Visor: Like its name implies, this fast absorbing, ultra-light sunscreen is as close to a visor as you can get. It’s PABA-free and fragrance free and protects your face and neck from harmful UV rays. Plus,its ultra fine mist form can be worn over makeup, which makes for easy reapplication.


Radical Skin Perfect Screen: On the surface, this SPF 30 is super light and easy to rub in, which is why we love it. The fact that it features diamond encapsulation to deflect light and blur wrinkles makes it all the better. It’s the ultimate multitasking product for those of us who want to look great and stay protected.


MD Solar Sciences SPF40 Quick Dry Body Spray: So good. So easy. We love that you can start using this on kids starting at six months. It dries in a flash and its easy application is perfect for squirming kids who can’t wait to jump in the water.


Chantecaille “Just Skin” Tinted Moisturizer with SPF: Perfection in a bottle. This everyday moisturizer is so light and offers the perfect amount of coverage and glow. It’s truly a can’t-live-without keeper.
