This year, it’s all about combining skincare benefits with UV protection. Sunscreens in 2014 are no longer thick, cast a white shadow in photos and feel heavy on the skin. Antioxidant-rich vitamins, botanicals and minerals are in some of these new, lightweight and non-clogging formulations. All skin types will be able to protect their skin without experiencing breakouts, irritation or meltdowns under makeup. This year’s sunscreens are also taking a cue from tinted moisturizers, providing a sheer layer of color to help even skintone and provide key daily hydration.
