Protect your skin this summer with UV-blocking products that look as good as they feel. We wait all year for the chance to bask in the sun during the summer months, but relishing its warming sensations— whether lounging on the beach at Montage Kapalua Bay or enjoying a table on the terrace at Georgie while lunching with friends at Montage Beverly Hills—also means guarding our skin from its harmful ultraviolet rays. “Nowadays more and more cosmetics companies are incorporating SPF into their makeup products,” says celebrity makeup artist Monika Blunder, who has worked with stars such as Jessica Alba, Anna Chlumsky and Chelsea Handler. “Those concerned with being protected from UVA/UVB [rays] all day should know that foundation does wear off—so, if it contains SPF, you’ll need to reapply to maintain that level of sun protection,” Blunder says, noting that it’s important to consult with your doctor or dermatologist to get a professional analysis on the condition of your skin before selecting any products for the face. When it comes to incorporating sunscreen products into a makeup routine, feel can be a key factor. “Lots of sunscreens can feel oily or greasy so it’s important to use a sunscreen that feels comfortable on the skin,” Blunder says. “I like to use a moisturizer with an SPF so that it’s one less product that needs to be applied.” With the right sunscreen product, you’ll look radiant while soaking up the sun. Enlightened Items Celebrity makeup artist Monika Blunder recommends these protective beauty products. “I love this CC cream because of the high level of SPF. It has great longevity, medium coverage, and contains a physical sunscreen so it doesn’t irritate sensitive skin,” says celebrity makeup artist Monika Blunder of IT Cosmetics’ YOUR SKIN BUT BETTER CC+ CREAM WITH SPF 50+. “[It’s] great for days at the pool or beach when I want great sun protection but a little coverage on my complexion,” $38, at itcosmetics.com. Well-versed in sun protection, Spa Montage Kapalua Bay suggests guests wear CORRECTING MULTIVITAMIN DAY CRÈME SPF 30 from Kerstin Florian. It has a soothing lightweight texture while still providing maximum protection from free radicals, UV rays and environmental stressors, $60, at kerstinfl orian.com. “This is a great facial sunscreen that is lightweight and sheer,” Blunder says of the iS Clinical ECLIPSE SPF 50+. “It’s great to wear under your foundation because it’s not heavy or greasy feeling. I like this sunscreen when I know I’ll be in the sun for a while because it’s long lasting,” $38, at isclinical.com. For a powder, Blunder suggests Jane Iredale PUREPRESSED BASE MINERAL FOUNDATION. “I really enjoy using this pressed mineral powder because it provides a natural light-medium coverage, has SPF 20, is easy to apply touch-ups, and feels lightweight on the skin. This is great to use year-round,” Blunder says, $42, at janeiredale.com. For prevention, Spa Montage Beverly Hills recommends that guests use LA BELLA DONNA SPF 50, a natural, pure mineral translucent SPF powder that offers all-day protection, $65, at labelladonna.com.
