This Pro Surfer’s Skin Secret Is Worth Stealing Now

The line between sun-kissed and sunburned, one of the summer’s most alluring and dangerous games, is a thin one. How to enjoy the sun’s glow without falling victim to its damaging rays? Few people have mastered this art like professional surfers, who live, work, and play at the beach. For Montauk, New York, native and world-renowned short boarder Quincy Davis, 22, years under the sun have taught her two important things about her skin: It will look better in the future with more SPF, and it will look better right now with a little color correction. “I’m in the sun so much, so I really want to take care of my skin while I’m young,” says Davis, who shares her multilayered fail-safe routine for every fun-in-the-sun scenario.

For a day at the beach, Davis mixes equal parts tinted moisturizer and sunscreen—a reliable cocktail that provides just enough coverage to conceal breakouts, redness, and dark circles, while remaining sheer enough to go undetected in broad daylight. Plus, she says, “it gives a nice glow.” Her trusted pairing is La Roche Posay’s Anthelios Mineral Sunscreen with SPF 50 and Trish McEvoy’s Beauty Booster Tinted Moisturizer, which boasts a backup layer of SPF 20. More coverage simply can’t hurt, she reasons.

Then there are the on-the-go, in-and-out-of-water touch-ups, which call for Avène High Protection. It features SPF 50 and tinted coverage in one slim compact. But, Davis admits, when it comes to spending hours in the water surfing, nothing beats the budge-proof protection of Shiseido’s waterproof Sun Protection Stick. Even if it’s not accompanied by a glow-inducing tint, what could be more beautiful than a worry-free complexion?
