Find out with the new Rodan + Fields Age-O-Meter Facebook App: You upload your picture, then age progression software instantly adds 30 years to your face. We tested it (the things we do in the name of journalism!) and suffice it to say, we will be taking care of our skin (hello, SPF!) with even more fervor than before. Try it yourself and get inspired to stay out of the sun and pamper that precious complexion!

No-Mess SPF

Yes, you can reapply facial SPF without getting gooey—or messing up your makeup: Sunscreen powders offer physical UVA/UVB protection via minerals like zinc oxide and titanium dioxide. Dust the sheer formulas over makeup before going out for lunch, at the end of the workday, or after your workout—they’re also great for reducing shine in steamy weather. Don’t use SPF powder as your day-at-the-beach facial protection or to replace your regular morning sunscreen, though; they’re best for touch-ups. Our picks (both are portable, spill-proof, and come equipped with handy applicators): Peter Thomas Roth Instant Mineral Powder SPF 45 ($30) and Jane Iredale Powder-Me SPF 30 Dry Sunscreen Translucent ($44).
