Choose makeup products with SPF for a gorgeous, healthy summerThere's nothing quite like makeup products that are designed to make you both beautiful and healthy at the same time. This summer, take your skin's health into consideration when choosing your makeup.

Not all of the products in your makeup bag are destined to contain SPF, of course, but with the right routine, you'll have the perfect amount of coverage without interfering with the rest of your look.

For the best sun-safe results, apply an SPF moisturizer to your face and let it soak in for at least five minutes prior to applying your makeup. This is great to wear under an SPF foundation, which offers additional protection but isn't a substitute for sunscreen and shouldn't have to be worn all over your face if you don't require that much coverage. Be sure to apply it to oft-neglected areas such as your ears, around your eyes and above your mouth.

It's also crucial to invest in an SPF lip balm or lipstick. Lips feature skin that's even more sensitive than that of your face, so you'll want to make sure your pout is protected at all times.
