Summer is right around the corner. In addition to planning camps for your kids, vacations and maybe a little time to relax for yourself, moms will also want to think about updating their beauty routine for the season.

Because moms are already stretched thin and overtired, we really don't need any added wrinkles from the sun. That's why we love these nine beauty products from Walmart that also protect us with broad-spectrum SPF. From concealers to lotions and even lipstick, these nine SPF-infused beauty products will be lifesavers for moms this summer.
