After remaining safely at home for the last few months, many of us are ready to head outside for exercise and summer fun. It’s never too early or too late to think about summer skin care products to protect your face and body from the harmful rays of the sun. I am sharing a few of my current favorite Summer Sun Protection products. This post contains affiliate links.
Summer Skin Care and Sun Protection Products for Runners
I am the first to admit that I neglected taking summer skin care and sun protection seriously. Unfortunately, I had to have a few minor skin cancer (and pre-cancerous) spots removed in the past few years. So, I am making an effort to take it much more seriously. These are a few of the products I am currently loving.
Elta MD Tinted Facial Sunscreen was recommended to me by my Dermatologist. What I love about it: slightly tinted to give a little color, great for sensitive skin, mineral based, water resistant, provides UVA/UVB protection. Find it here on Amazon.
SuperGoop GlowScreen A new product this season and I already love it. What makes it great: Super easy to blend in and feels light on the skin. Glowscreen also has a shimmery tint to it and gives a “dewey”glow. Can be used alone or under makeup as an everyday SPF. I have run tested this one a few times and it does not sweat off or leave any streaks.It has some Vitamin B and hyaluronic acid.
Bright Eyed Mineral Eye Cream with SPF 40. Another new favorite from SuperGoop. Even if you wear a hat, visor or sunglasses, your eyes need sunscreen. 100% mineral. What I love: no stinging eyes! It is fast absorbing with a slight tint to cover up those dark circles.

Supergoop Play lip balm with SPF30. I use this one all year around to protect from the sun and the wind. What I love: it’s hydrating and protective. It has honey and shea butter for softness and lasts for months. Comes in both Acai and Mint scents. Find it here on Amazon.
For fully body protection, I like CopperTone Sport 50 SPF products. What I like: Does not feel sticky or irritate my skin. Does well with sweaty activities, water resistant and very economical.
