This lightweight 100 per cent mineral filter formula does double duty offering sun protection and makeup in one. With a subtle tint, it’s a lightweight, nongreasy texture that can be worn alone and will deliver protection for your skin as well as a hit of antioxidants.

Perfect for sensitive skin thanks to Avène’s soothing thermal water, this pocket-sized sunscreen not only protects skin from UVB and UVA, but it also fends off the damage pollution and blue light can cause. Bonus: It goes on like oil-free foundation.

This brand is synonymous with sunscreen, but for the first time ever, it’s making the switch to mineral. The new formula is hypoallergenic and made with 100 per cent zinc oxide. It’s also water resistant for up to 80 minutes and free from fragrance, parabens, phthalates and dyes.

This unique formula contains a “biomimetic hexapeptide,” which features specific amino acids to activate melanin production in the skin and help it build up its own defences. Meanwhile, vitamin E and an anti-inflammatory acid blend boost the skin’s repair process when it’s exposed to the sun.

Made right here in Canada, this sunscreen stick is super portable and ideal for those spots that are extra susceptible to sunburn, like your nose and ears. It’s formulated with 95.7 per cent certified organic ingredients and vitamins D and E to repair while it protects.
