Enjoy fun in the sun: here are the best five foundations with SPF
Every dermatologist out there will recommend we use a product with SPF (sun protection factor) on our faces every day. And for good reason! For one, it blocks harmful UV rays from penetrating the skin, which can trigger dangerous skin disorders. Also, the sun ages you, and ain’t nobody got time for that… literally. There really is no excuse not to apply protection to your face, especially because foundations are now infused with SPF.

Urban Decay 

Urban Decay’s Naked Skin One and Done Foundation is a multitasking cream that not only contains an SPF of 20, but blurs imperfections and evens out your skin tone too. Its weightless formula provides all-day wear and it feels super light on your skin, ideal for sweltering hot days where the last thing you need is a heavy foundation. The oil-free formula also contains a whole bunch of vitamins, and it acts as a great moisturiser too. Talk about an all-in-one product, right? 

L’Oréal Paris

We love Age Perfect Foundation by L’Oréal Paris. It doesn’t prioritise SPF protection but it does contain five powerful anti-ageing ingredients like pro-retinol, hyaluronic acid and a vitamin C derivative, that make for younger-looking, more radiant skin. (And we know the ageing effects of the sun!) This foundation’s creamy texture makes it super easy to spread and the real gold particles make for an illuminating finish. Its lightweight pump bottle also means it’s the perfect handbag accessory. 


When it comes to brightening your complexion while protecting against sun damage, try Lancôme’s Teint Miracle Foundation. This product’s pearlescent pigments reproduce and reflect the light on the surface of the skin. We know, right?! This means immediately brighter, fresher-looking skin every day. It also includes a high concentration of water, so your skin remains hydrated during hot summer months.  

Yves Saint Laurent 

This energising foundation, infused with an SPF of 22, is enriched with Ruscus Extract to visibly combat signs of tiredness. YSL’s Touche Eclat Le Teint Awakening Foundation creates an even, naturally radiant complexion that lasts for hours. We love its weightlessness and how good it feels on our skin. You’ll spend a little more on this one, but it’s well worth it. 

So, equally important to looking your best is making sure you’re protecting your skin. And with this range of SPF foundations, you’ll be good to go outside and embrace the sunshine in no time!
