By now, we all just how important using a daily SPF is for not only the appearance of your skin (they say it’s the biggest anti-ager, after all) but also for the health of your skin. While we always recommend using sunscreen (we suggest opting for a formula with at SPF 30 or higher) as the final part of your everyday skincare routine pre-makeup application, you can a double-dose of SPF and free radical protection by using a foundation or complexion base that’s infused with additional sun protection.
The multifunctional skincare-makeup hybrids are not only infused with sun protection and anti-aging ingredients to improve your skin over time, but they also provide more coverage than your standard tinted moisturizer or BB cream. Of course, if you’re planning on coming into contact with flash photography, you’ll want to skip SPF-infused foundations, as they can often trigger a ghostly, white cast effect in photos, but aside from that, there really aren’t any downsides to these affordable formulas. Scroll through below to check out some of our favorite foundations with built-in sun defense.
