We can talk at length about the latest beauty trends, colours and techniques but one part of our daily routine that isn’t a fad and that looks good on everyone is a moisturizing lotion with sunscreen!
Not only do they protect against damaging UV rays, but they also moisturize delicate facial skin. It is an easy way to ensure that you are always covered.
Below are a few of the best multitaskers on the market.
Cetaphil Daily Facial Moisturizer SPF 50
Cetaphil Daily Facial Moisturizer SPF 50 ($15.99) is perfect for those of us who need high levels of UVA and UVB protection. This is the highest SPF level available in a facial moisturizer and it comes in a light, non-greasy formula. Dermatologist-recommended for year-round protection thanks to its non-comedogenic, fragrance-free and non-irritating properties.
Available at major drugstores across Canada
Clarins Brightening Hydrating Day Lotion SPF 20
Melt this milky emulsion into the skin for moisture, SPF protection and a brightening effect. Brightening Hydrating Day Lotion SPF 20 ($66.00) is an excellent base as it protects the skin from the environment and enhances makeup while prolonging its hold.

Bioré Nourish Moisture Lotion SPF 15
Moisture-binding ingredients work to keep skin hydrated all day long, while the broad spectrum sunscreen guards against UVA and UVB rays. The lotion ($9.99) glides over the face without the usual heaviness of a sun block.

Elizabeth Arden INTERVENE Radiance Boosting Moisture Lotion SPF 15
INTERVENE Radiance Boosting Moisture Lotion ($68.00 / US $49.00) offers many benefits to the skin. It instantly adds a radiant, clear and natural looking glow while offering protection from the sun. It also helps to fight the visible effects caused by aging.

L’Oréal Paris Revitalift Complete Lotion SPF 15
After the age of 40, there are fewer elastin fibers in the skin resulting in loss of firmness and more visible wrinkles. Revitalift Complete Lotion SPF 15 ($29.99) uses Pro-Retinol A, Pro-Lastyl and Criste Marine Extract to increase cell turnover, firm skin and take away the look of wrinkles. It also provides 24-hour moisture.
