Shield your skin and hair from the sun with these SPF must-haves.

Not all facial moisturizers are created equal. Some SPF-boasting lotions—even a few sold on store shelves—are missing key ingredients that provide protection from the sun’s damaging rays, such as titanium dioxide and zinc oxide. But not Kinerase Cream with SPF 30 ($135). This facial lotion also contains kinetin, a natural ingredient that helps diminish fine lines and wrinkles. After just one week of testing, we noticed a visible change in our skin’s tone—enough to make the price tag worth it.

Who has time to slather on sunscreen every day? Not us. That’s why we love Ice Shield Facial Cleanser by Freeze 24/7 ($48). Simply wash your face, and the SPF 15 stays on. The light layer that remains after rinsing doesn’t have the heavy residue of bottled sunscreens and protects skin from daily sun exposure. The Skin Cancer Foundation recommends it—what more can we say?

Now you can shield your locks, too, because Frédéric Fekkai is expanding his summer hair collection. The five products in the line, due out in May, are designed to protect your tresses from UV rays and saltwater, and they’ve also got antioxidants to prevent color from fading. Our favorites include the water-resistant Fekkai Sun Bandana, a heat-activated sunscreen, and the Fekkai Wash and Wear, a spray that removes dirt and oil buildup and can be used in damp or dry hair—perfect for an on-the-go style after a day at the beach.

Kinerase available at Sephora, 8687 N. Central Expwy. 214-378-8177 or Ice Shield available at Saks Fifth Avenue, Galleria Dallas, 13550 Dallas Pkwy. 972-458-7000 or Frederic Fekkai available at Neiman Marcus, 400 NorthPark Center. 214-363-8311 or
