DamageDefenders Main

It’s no secret that the best defense is a good offense. Shield your skin and hair from potential harm—think sun, environmental and heat-induced damage—with these winners.

1 / 9

The Best Under Makeup SPF

Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Dry-Touch Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 30 ($8) 

The opposite of what you’ve come to expect from sunscreen, this supersheer version keeps your skin protected, but without a streaky white residue, so your makeup layers on top perfectly.

2 / 9

Most Potent Antioxidant Line

SkinCeuticals Advanced Anti-Aging System ($299) 

Antioxidants are all-stars in the anti-aging world, and this skin-care system takes full advantage of them. Preventing and correcting free-radical damage has never been easier.

3 / 9

The Anti-Aging Hair Helper

Alterna Caviar Anti-Aging Omega+ Nourishing Hair Oil ($38) 

Consider this the anti-aging hair mecca. It drenches dull, dry strands with a hefty dose of omega fatty acids that help strengthen damaged areas and boost shine and elasticity for locks that look so good, you’ll toss what you were using before.

4 / 9

The BB Cream That Rivals Foundation

Dior Diorskin Nude BB Crème ($45) 

When you want coverage and sun protection, but not the cakiness that can come with it, this BB cream is your go-to. It goes on like a second skin and gives just enough color to look natural and dewy, but never shiny

5 / 9

Your Beach Bag Essential

COOLA SPF 30 Organic Makeup Setting Spray ($36) 

A quick spritz keeps makeup intact and safeguards against UV rays. It’s so light, you won’t even know you have it on. 

6 / 9

Your Go-To Hair Savior

Bumble and bumble Hairdresser’s Invisible Oil ($40) 

Named “invisible oil” for a reason—it doesn’t leave behind residue like many other hair oils do—one pump is all you need to get shiny, smooth hair that stays perfectly polished all day and protected from heat-induced damage

7 / 9

Multitasking Must-Have For Your Hair

It’s a 10 Potion 10 Miracle Instant Repair Leave-in ($24) 

From detangling and de-frizzing to adding shine and beyond, this all-in-one keeps locks in tip-top shape.

8 / 9

The Secret to Youth in a Bottle

Elizabeth Arden Prevage Anti-Aging Daily Serum ($162) 

Loved by dermatologists, editors and readers alike, this powerful serum helps prevent and correct wrinkles, age spots and sun damage thanks to its star ingredient, idebenone— one of the most potent antioxidants that fights free-radical damage.

9 / 9

Sunscreen With the Coolest Formulation

ZO Skin Health Oclipse Smart Tone Broad Spectrum Sunscreen SPF 50 ($70) 

With its skin-tone matching technology and high level of SPF, this product is totally unique. Color-bursting beads deposit pigment to blend in with your skin and shield it from damage.
