The Rise of SPF-Powered Cosmetics

While SPF (Sun Protection Factor), the superhero fighting harmful UV rays, has long since been a western beachside essential, it is now a key player in the world of high-performance beauty, globally.

From standalone products to hybrid SPF moisturizers and BB creams, sun protection has gotten a serious style upgrade.

 Everyday Sun Defense

For us South Asians, a radiant, even-toned complexion is challenging to achieve. This is because the melanin-rich skin that makes us oh-so exotic also possesses a heightened vulnerability to sun damage.

Here's the secret, though: flawless, sun-protected skin is absolutely achievable if you’re a skintellectual who knows how SPF works! For starters, ditch the outdated, inexpensive, greasy goops and embrace makeup that offers built-in sun protection designed to enhance your natural glow.

From foundations to lip balms, these multi-tasking marvels save time and eliminate the need to layer products.  

Beauty With Built-In Protection

Look for foundations and moisturizers with an SPF of 15 or higher. Bonus points if you can find SPF 30 and above. Remember, the higher the SPF the better the protection.

Primers, too, offer broad-spectrum SPF protection now, effectively creating a pre-makeup barrier against the sun's harsh effects.

Since lips are just as vulnerable to sun damage as the rest of your face, opt for SPF infused lip balms that provide a matte finish to minimize shine and maximize sun defense.

Lock it all in with setting sprays and powders for an extra layer of protection throughout the day. For touch-ups, use our Softlight Setting Powder, Softlight Banana Powder, or Softlight Peach Powder to mattify your skin and keep your sun protection topped up.

Stay Lusciously Sun-Kissed

While we at Luscious Cosmetics love the sun we love sun defense even more. Our innovative brightening base is a staple that boasts an impressive SPF 35 and offers hydration, priming, and sun protection in one luxurious formula. With its flawless coverage and built-in shield, it’s the perfect addition to your daily beauty routine.
