Which Sunscreen Is Right For You?
The term "decision fatique" might as well have been coined in the sunscreen section of the drugstore. There are so many options, with so many promises, and trying to pick the right one can cause even the most ingredient-savvy shopper to throw up her hands, grab one at eye level and call it a day. Good for you! At least you're wearing something. But you can geta lotmore than SPF from your sunscreen. Here, the top 10 to suit your individual needs. Find one you love and use it like it’s going out of style, and then click here to decode your sunscreen ingredients.
As if SPF didn’t have enough benefits, the CeraVe Sunscreen SPF 50 Sunscreen Stick (.99; cerave.com) has plumping hyaluronic acid and ceramides (staples in your anti-aging creams), which moisturize and protect your skin’s barrier.
What good is your favorite sunscreen if it doesn’t make it past the TSA? Coppertone Sport recently launched your favorite long-lasting sunscreen (it’s water resistant for up to 80 minutes) in a 3oz bottle (.99; ), so you don’t need to buy a new sunscreen when you land, which is great when the line at customs makes you want to bee-line for the beach.
Kiss My Face Sun Screen SPF 30 with Oat Protein Complex uses safflower seed-derived hydresia to moisturize and titanium dioxide and zinc oxide to reflect the sun’s rays (.95; kissmyface.com).
Try Murad Essential-C Sun Balm Broad Spectrum SPF 35 (; murad.com), which packs ingredients like vitamin A, vitamin C, broccoli extract, and tangerine butter into a convenient balm to keep skin healthy, hydrated, and protected.
You’re right to have trashed the SPF 4 tanning oil you used back in the 70s. But the modern day oil (read: L’Oreal Sublime Sun SPF 50 with grapeseed oil) provides the same protection as lotion with even more hydration (.99; drugstores).
Coola sources their ingredients locally (they’re based in San Diego) and chooses organic whenever possible. Coola Sport Mineral Sunscreen SPF 35 (; coola.com) uses organic coconut oil and plankton extract to keep skin hydrated and arnica extract to reduce inflammation.
Neutrogena Beach Defense Water & Sun Barrier Spray SPF 70 (.99; drugstores) is oil-free and hypoallergenic so it goes on easily without that greasy, my-pores-must-be-clogging feeling. But remember: It only works if it makes its way onto your skin—so no applying in the wind.
Sunscreen fail alert! Sunburns still happen to the best of us. Stay in the shade and use Margaritaville Parrot Head Fins Up! Sport Instant Dry Sunscreen SPF 50, which has aloe to soothe your sorry, sunburned skin (.99; drugstores).
There's nothing worse than a too-thick sunscreen that feels like a mask. GloTherapeutics Water Resistant Facial SPF 45 (; gloprofessional.com) provides the broad-spectrum protection of your favorite sunscreen, but glides on your skin like a moisturizer.
Why stop at broad-spectrum sun protection? The Suntegrity 5-in-1 Natural Moisturizing Face Sunscreen (; suntegrityskincare.com) offers antioxidants, aloe vera, and jojoba to sooth skin and provide added protection against free radical damage. It stays put all day and works just as well as a sunscreen—but with a nice skin-evening effect, too.
