UV rays aren’t just a seasonal threat to your skin’s health. They’re present year-round. In the summertime, though, direct sunlight magnifies their potency—particularly since we spend so much extra time outdoors. You’ve heard the warning: Sunscreen blocks harmful rays, it helps keep your skin from aging faster, blah blah blah.
That’s all true, but dense sunscreens also block the pores on your face, or lead to excess sweat since it weighs so heavily atop the skin. The solution to these concerns is SPF-packed moisturizers: They’re lightweight like your typical topical hydrator, but they also protect your face from all the bad stuff.
So: Slather the sunscreen from the shoulders down, and apply any of these seven lightweight, non-greasy, sun-blocking, pore-friendly creams from the neck up.
