Sunscreens are essential.
Summer is coming, and people finally start to remember to put on their sunscreens. However, sunscreen should not be just for the summer. Sun protection should be part of any daily skincare routine in order to preserve one's complexion, minimize sun damage and maintain a youthful, healthy glow. The most important thing to remember is always to avoid overexposure to the sun. Even short periods of daily sun exposure accumulated over time without sunscreen protection can cause damage to the skin. Therefore, sunscreen protection is definitely a daily essential.
But, it's easy to forget sunscreens.
There are tons of different types of sunscreens out there, but many of them are full of redundant chemicals and additives, while more natural and organic alternatives can often be difficult to rub in and leave behind a whitish ghost-like mask on the skin. These sunscreens are fine for a lone day on the beach once in a while, but for daily use, there are much better and more convenient alternatives.
For many people, it is easy to be lazy and leave sunscreen out of their daily skin care routine. Fortunately, there is an abundant choice of skincare and cosmetic products out there that are able to deliver quality sunscreen protection, as well as skin care benefits and makeup effects.
Sunscreen multi-taskers are convenient, as a lotion is likely already a part of your daily regimen.

An all-time staff favorite sunscreen multi-tasker here is the Murad Environmental Shield Essential-C Day Moisturizer SPF 30. This is a wonderful multi-functioning formula that provides excellent hydration, top notch sunscreen protection, as well as nourishes skin with vitamins and antioxidants, all the while combating environmental damage such as toxins and pollutants. This product is especially suitable for those living in cities often with burning hot sun rays as well as bad pollution and constant air conditioned environments.

Sunscreen Multi-Taskers that Double as Makeup
For those looking for some light makeup coverage together with sunscreen protection on-the-go, Avene High Protection Tinted Compact SPF 50 is an excellent choice.
