Protection from the strong rays of the Florida sun is especially important for keeping faces healthy and looking great. My new go-to daily staple, Clarins UV Plus Day Screen High Protection Tint SPF 40, shields delicate complexions with 100 percent mineral filters while battling harsh elements with a patented anti-pollution complex. Clarins says it uses organic cantaloupe from Provence for powerful antioxidants that fight cell-damaging free radicals, those villainous molecules that age your skin.
That’s all well and good, but what makes this lightweight lotion indispensible is the way it makes my face look and feel. The first week I used it, three people who see me every day mentioned how good I looked. Really! The sheer tint dries to a soft, perfecting finish. My skin looks so good, I don’t need foundation. The lotion also keeps my face feeling soft and nongreasy until I wash it off at the end of the day.
Available for $40 at Sephora and major department stores.
