The products included in this post are just suggestions of how to protect your face from sunburn. You can use another sunscreen, depending on your skin type or product availability in your country. But one is for sure – take care and use it all year round! 

Protecting our skin from the dangerous UV rays is important for long lasting beauty. One of the things that usually happens when we visit a new place is to forget our usual beauty routine. In our excitement to embark on a new adventure, we often forget to take care of our main riches – our health.  One of the main secrets to staying healthy and beautiful during our trips is to have good products in your bag and to know well your body. Make priority protecting your face from sunburn while traveling because it can happen everywhere no matter of the climate or the temperatures. And the consequences can be irreversible, especially with the age. 

One of the main secrets to staying healthy and beautiful during our trips is to have good products in your bag and to know well your body. Make priority protecting your face from sunburn while traveling because it can happen everywhere no matter of the climate or the temperatures. And the consequences can be irreversible, especially with the age. As I could experience myself last summer trekking alone in Norway, the sun allergies are quick to come and slow to go away (if never).

The products below are some of my favorites. I have a very fair skin that easily burns and irritates. That’s why I carefully chose my face products and have few different sunscreens to use in different circumstances, especially depending on the climate where I am at the moment.

MAC Face Protect Lotion SPF 50

This was the first MAC product I have ever used and I cannot be happier with it! It is easy to apply, I just rub it onto the skin with my fingertips and it is absorbed the skin perfectly. As all other sunscreen products, it makes the skin looks oily but in much lesser extent that some other products.

The best feature of this product for the traveling ladies is probably its compact form. The oval black bottle is 30 ml and very easy to pack in any type of pouch or organizer. And don’t forget – if you have an easily sunburning skin, pack SPF 50 even in autumn travel days!

BOCHKO Sunscreen or other good value for money product

This is a Bulgarian brand of cosmetic products for children that became very popular for use from women too because of its good quality products on very affordable price. But I am sure that in your country there are also budget cosmetic brands that provide the same and sometimes even better care for your skin but with some particularities. For example, Bochko sunscreen is good for protecting your face on the beach but I wouldn’t advise its use in the everyday life, especially in the city, because it makes your skin much oilier than many other sunscreens. But this depends on your skin type, of course, so you will find your best choice of trying all the options.

AVENE Stick for Sensitive Areas SPF 50+

This product is made to protect the most exposed to sun face parts, especially the nose and lips. But I know people who use it on their whole face by applying it thoroughly with circular motions in order to penetrate well into the skin.  The good thing about this product is that you can use it in all seasons – on the beach but also when skiing.

PIZ BUIN Sun Lipstick 30 SPF with Aloe Vera

I love this product! It helps me keep my lips soft and protected from the strong sun on the beach or during my summer travels no matter where. It is totally invisible, has no color but I enjoy the mild scent and taste.

How-to-protect-your-face-from-sunburn-Bioderma

BIODERMA Photoderm Max SPF 50+

This product was never my favorite because it doesn’t fit well with my skin color. But I consider it as a very easy to use and carry with you everywhere. That’s why if this mineral compact fits well with your skin, I believe you will be happy to use it.

HAWAIIAN TROPIC Silk Hydration Face SPF 30

This non-greasy lotion is good for the summer because it is light and moisturizing the skin. I enjoy it also because it has a slightly sweet smell and its consistency is not liquid as of many similar products. You still have to bear in mind that the product has only SPF 30 and if you are of these people who have to be very strict with their sun protection better to choose another one.

how-to-protect-your-face-from-sunburn-Toleriane

LA ROCHE-POSAY Toleriane Teint SPF 25

As you can see, this product has not very high protection but it is covering the blemishes very well. If you have one of those bad skin days, you can use it to help you cover the imperfections. The only bad thing about it is that it has heavy texture and this makes it a little bit more difficult to apply it as you have to be careful not to let some parts of your face with visual proof of its use. 🙂
