Festival season is upon us, and as you plan how you'll dress for a handful of consecutive days standing out in the sun, basking in the glow of all your favorite musicians, it's important to consider what to put on your face to make sure that glow doesn't do some serious damage to your skin. Sun protection is important all year round, so if you need a sign to tell you to find a product with a high SPF to have on heavy rotation, this is it.
That doesn't mean having to smear on gooey, white sunscreen all over your face and smell gross all day, or ending up with that nagging sting in your eyes from inevitably spraying the canister the wrong way. So many of your favorite products already come loaded with a high SPF (your favorite BB creams and foundations might actually already have built-in protection) so there's no excuse for going without.
Below, NYLON has rounded up a selection of the best beauty products with high SPF to stash in your belt bag as you hit the streets of SXSW, or find yourself deep in a crowd of Arianators at Coachella, so that you can keep your look on-point without having to sacrifice proper sun protection.
