Okay, so maybe not all of us are perfect when it comes to protecting our skin. But there are ways to load up on your daily SPF supply without going out of the way with off-coloured sunscreen. From foundations to contour sticks, here are 6 of our favourite products that’ll help with your daily dose of SPF:


1. UV Bright Cushion SPF 35/PA+++, Make Up For Ever (RM189) – The UV Bright Cushion is a 3-in-1 foundation that provides a bright and luminous finish while injecting intense hydration. Besides the great coverage and intense moisture for dehydrated skin, the cushion foundation also protects your skin from harsh UV rays with SPF35/PA+++. Dewy skin and sun protection? Yes please!


2. Moisture Bomb Cushion 2nd Edition SPF 50+ /PA+++, belif (RM159) – Staying true to its name, this BB cushions holds a whole lot of moisture. It’s said to bring you 26 hours of moisture and up to 4 hours of coverage without having to reapply. With an SPF level of 50+, the 2nd edition of the moisture bomb won’t leave your skin feeling sticky.


3. BB Mate Contouring 1.2.3 Kit, Dr. Jart (RM165) – Available at Sephora, this multitasking trio of BB creams are formulated with a skin care base with 40 percent moisturising ingredients. The liquid base contouring kit sculpts and shades while leaving a natural-looking effect while it protects the skin with SPF 30.


4. Fresh Nude Foundation, The Body Shop (RM119) – Enriched with English rose water and aloe vera, this hydrating foundation leaves the skin feeling fresh and comfortable all day. With a semi-matte finish and SPF 15, we absolutely love how weightless the formula feels.


5. Nourishing Naturals Lip Duo, Fresh (RM105) – We’re going out on a limb here and confessing that we’ve been fans of Fresh’s lip products ever since the brand’s debut in the Malaysian’s beauty scene. The Sugar Cream Lip Treatment Buff is a creamy formula that nourishes the lips while leaving a warm nude shimmer. The Sugar Lip Treatment Sunscreen comes with SPF 15 that smooths and protects while delivering up to 6 hours of hydration.


6. Defense Refresh Setting Mist SPF 50, Supergoop! (RM46) – This matte finish setting mist has a 3-in-1 function that helps you set your make-up, prevent oil buildup (goodbye melting face) and provides that last bit of protection on the surface of your skin.
