The next time the weather tempts you to skip some steps in your beauty routine, feel free to let everything go except sunscreen. Because whether you're staying indoors or stepping out, keeping your skin protected from harmful UV rays is a must at all times—regardless when it's too hot or too cold outside.
But if you think that's easier said than done, here's one of our favorite tricks: Ditch the foundation (or even concealer) for a tinted sunscreen. This way, you're getting the quick complexion boost and your much-needed SPF all in one step! Another bonus? The tint can help you dodge that unsightly white cast.
