Summer is gone, fall is here and winter is just a few months away. While you may not be soaking up the sun as much in the cooler seasons, your skincare routine still needs SPF even on the most frigid days.

Even in winter, the sun still beats down UVB rays your skin needs protection from. And according to APDerm, “the sun is actually closer to the earth during the winter months, making your chances of sunburn that much higher.”

While applying sunscreen may not feel so great on your skin when you wear a heavy moisturizer, serum and facial oil for the winter, there is one option that I love to use — and it costs only $13 on Amazon.

Shop: Sun Bum Original SPF 50 Sunscreen Face Lotion, $12.82

For those who can’t stand wearing sunscreen because of its texture (myself included), this Sun Bum’s face lotion feels super lightweight and non-greasy. And for those with sensitive skin, this dermatologist-tested formula is free of octinoxate, oxybenzone, fragrance and oil. Plus, this formula has a very minimal white cast, one that doesn’t show up at all on my olive-tan skin.

With 4.7 out of 5 stars and over 2,800 ratings on Amazon, many shoppers also enjoy using this particular sunscreen.

“I must say by far it’s the best sunscreen I have tried,” one five-star reviewer wrote. “It’s very different from any other brands I have used. It’s very natural, effective and not greasy or sticky at all.”

Another shopper explained, “I love this sunscreen! I use it daily under my makeup, and it dries semi-matte and moisturizes my skin. It’s like sunscreen, primer and moisturizer all in one. It’s also cruelty-free!”

Keeping your skin safe is important for any season of the year, which is why sunscreen is a year-round essential. And if you want an option that won’t feel so gunky on your face, especially during the colder temperatures, this one is definitely worth considering.
