Sunscreen is that one non-negotiable item in your skincare routine; or at least it should be. Sunscreen helps with hyperpigmentation, fine lines, and of course everything else the sun does to our skin. Gone are the days where you have to look like you just smothered chalk all over your face. The sunscreen that we're raving about is the Summer Fridays ShadeDrops Mineral Milk Sunscreen ($36). This SPF actually makes you want to wear sunscreen. Lauren Ireland, the cofounder of Summer Fridays told Byrdie that they wanted to create a "mineral sunscreen that fully blends into the skin, while also pairing well with makeup". We tried the sunscreen for ourselves and it does not cease to amaze.
See it in action for yourself:
It's free from all the ingredients that you wouldn't want on your skin:
• 4-methylbenzylidene camphor
The sunscreen has key ingrdients such as zinc oxide (important for shielding skin from damaging UVA/UVB rays), squalane (hydrating ingredient), and an antioxidant complex (helps fight visible signs of aging). Marianna Hewitt, the other cofounder of Summer Fridays told Birdie "For years we have talked about the importance of SPF as a part of your daily skincare routine regardless of the season or weather, so we are so excited that we were able to create such an important step of your routine."
