While we can all agree that sunscreen is essential, it’s an extra step no one really enjoys. Many times, it won’t sit well under makeup—and other times, well, we’re just plain lazy. But that’s no reason to skip it altogether! What you can do is take shortcuts. Start with our 5 easy tricks to sneak SPF into your day. Little to no effort needed—promise.
