IN BRIEF: Be Sun Smart

1. Canadian-made LASPA natural mineral sunscreens offer a healthy alternative to traditional chemical-based sunscreens. We are loving the texture of their SPF30 Moisturizing Mineral Sunscreen for Face and Sensitive Areas ($40) and the highly portable SPF50 Ultra Sun Protection Stick ($18). Contains 95.7 per cent certified organic ingredients to provide 98 per cent broad spectrum protection. Vitamin D and E are added for protecting and nourishing the skin. laspanaturels.com

2. From skincare expert Clarins, snap up the Sun Kit with Body Oil SPF 30 ($42) that includes Sunscreen Care Oil Spray, a dry oil for body and hair with high UVA/UVB 30 protection and After Sun Gel Ultra-Soothing, a refreshing gel for moisturized and satin-smooth skin. clarins.ca

3. Guard against the sun’s damaging rays with this innovative, continuous- mist sunscreen. Formulated with non-nano zinc oxide and California poppy extract, this physical SPF 30 formula provides an effective shield from UVA and UVB rays while the tint helps camouflage imperfections and even out skin tone.

4. An enriched formula with antioxidants including vitamin E and sunflower oil, Vichy Ideal Soleil Ultra-Fluid Tinted Lotion SPF 60 offers complete protection against UVA and UVB rays. Lightweight, non-greasy and good for 80 minutes of water resistance. $30; vichy.ca
