10 Best Moisturizers to Protect your Skin for Summer

When performing my Microneedling PRP Facial, I always recommend a great aftercare skin regimen for you to follow in order to keep your face looking smooth and healthy. This article is about providing you with different moisturizers to help keep your skin safe and hydrated this summer with these SPF-infused moisturizers, and at all different price ranges!

Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Moisturizer – SPF 30 - $32: This classic SPF moisturizer formula was just recently reformulated to eliminate parabens, if you care about that sort of thing. We love how basic it is—in the best way possible. It's so easy to use, you'll go through a whole bottle before summer is over.

Lancome UV Expert Aquagel Defense Primer & Moisturizer- SPF 50- $39: Perfect for when heat and sweat threatens to ruin your makeup, this acts as both a moisturizer and primer. Its easy-to-blend gel texture is made with vitamin E, moringa extract, and edelweiss extracts to protect and hydrate skin.

Supergoop Superscreen Daily Moisturizer- SPF 40- $38: Fans of this cult sunscreen brand rejoice: they now have a moisturizer. It provides dewy hydration and powerful SPF 40. The lightweight texture is perfect for layering under makeup, since it won't leave a ghostly cast on any skin tone.

FAB Ultra Repair Pure Mineral Sunscreen Moisturizer Broad Spectrum- SPF 40- $30: This SPF 40 moisturizer gives sensitive and reactive skin the coddling hydration and sun protection it needs. It has colloidal oatmeal, antioxidants, and hydrating oils plus a mix of two mineral sun blocks.

NEOCUTIS Journee Bio-restorative Day Cream Broad Spectrum Sunscreen- SPF 30- $151: Made with line-plumping hyaluronic acid and an antioxidant blend of vitamin C, E, and green tea extract, this moisturizer will both soften skin and protect it from sun damage.

COOLA Mineral Sun Silk Crème- SPF 30- $42: This oil-free formula is made with gentle mineral sunscreen, niacinamide, and plant stem cells. It not only blocks UV rays, but it also saves your skin from blue light, infrared, and pollution damage.

Dermalogica Prisma Protect- SPF 30- $65: We know a light-activated moisturizer sounds gimmicky, but you'll forget all about that once you slather this lightweight formula on. It's everything you love about a daytime moisturizer but with added SPF 30 protection.

Cerave AM Face Moisturizer with Sunscreen- SPF 30- $16: This oil-free, no-frills SPF 30 cream keeps skin hydrated thanks to ceramides, niacinamide, and hyaluronic acid. It's also non-comedogenic and non-irritating, so you're officially out of excuses for skipping SPF.

Neutrogena Oil Free Daily Long Lasting Facial Moisturizer & Neck Cream- SPF 35- $8: You don't have to worry about this clogging your pores. This oil-free lightweight formula hydrates for 12 hours and protects skin from free radicals. Just be sure to reapply your SPF every two hours or so to make your skin stays protected, especially if you plan on being out in the sun all day.

OLAY Complete Daily Defense All Day Moisturizer SPF 30 Sensitive Skin- $14: This oil-free formula uses chemical sunscreens, but it's still a safe pick for sensitive skin (thanks to an exclusive solasheer non-irritating technology). It leaves skin feeling soft and hydrated, never greasy.
