Sunscreen in Autumn?

Yes Absolutely! Our skin needs to remain protected. So please do wear your sunscreen during these chilly, gloomy, and moody months. 

Autumn is the perfect time to recalibrate our beauty regimen — while it’s nice to purchase a new moody lipstick or sparkly eyeshadow, I’m here to remind you that sun exposure is cumulative; therefore, it’s essential to buy the right Sunscreen for fall/winter so let’s add a new sunscreen to our Sephora shopping cart.

Wearing sunscreen is one of my nonnegotiables when it comes to skincare, and it should be one of yours too.  I don’t know about you, but I’m not interested in wrinkles, fine lines, and brown spots. And please don’t be like my friend and say there is no Sun in the Autumn and Winter months. It may look cloudy and moody, but the sun does penetrate through the clouds.

What I love about the Autumn and Winter months is the flexibility of sun protection. My skin craves more hydration, although it’s still very oily, and I go down a bit in the SPF levels, but I still do stay within an SPF range of a minimum of 30 to 50.

Here are six favorites that I love and always rotate, plus a new one with staying power.

La Roche Posay Double Repair Face Moisturizer UV SPF 30

This melts into my face without leaving a white cast. It’s creamy and doesn’t make my oily skin greasy.

Black Girl Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 30

Black Girl Sunscreen is specifically crafted for women of color. It’s nourishing — it gives me added hydration without the greasiness, and it’s un-scented.

Dr. Dennis Gross Instant Radiance Sun Defense SPF 40

Since I’m not a makeup kind of girl, something with a little tint always elevates my look. I love this option for that. It’s blendable and gives me a nice glow of freshness.

Supergoop! Unseen Sunscreen SPF 40

This Supergoop is a fast-absorbing option, but it can be a hit and miss with me but still a fave. It’s moisture-packing and gives a nice glow, but at times it can leave me greasy. 

UnSun Mineral Tinted Sunscreen SPF 30

I love this for a few good reasons: (1) I believe it leaves my skin better than it found it, (2) It’s made for my medium tone, and (3) No white cast. My friend uses this as a primer for her makeup and loves it. 

Colorescience Sunforgettable Brush-On Shield SPF 50

This is a staple in my skin regimen, and you can find one in my purse day or night. It’s perfect for touch up during the day, and it’s ideal for getting rid of oiliness if I’m out for an evening of fun.


Fenty Beauty Hydra Vizor Invisible Moisturizer SPF 30This new Fenty Beauty purchase has not disappointed and has staying power. It’s moisture infused, has one of my favorite ingredients (niacinamide), and I’m all glowed up for the day.
