Temperatures are rising, which means that it is also high time that you prepare your skin for the harsh rays of the sun. Contrary to popular belief, sunscreen isn’t just for wearing at the pool or park when temperatures climb. If you want to be proactive about your skin’s health and preventing potentially cancerous moles and lesions, you’re better off slathering your skin with sunscreen every day of the week. Thankfully, this is an easy goal to accomplish, if you try one of these fan-favorite sunscreens.
Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Dry-Touch Sunscreen SPF 70
With an SPF of 70 and fast-absorbing properties, this Neutrogena sunscreen checks off dermatologists’ and users’ wish lists. According to Joshua Zeichner, M.D., director of cosmetic and clinical research in dermatology at New York City’s Mount Sinai Hospital, “Starting out with a higher SPF acts as an insurance policy to give the highest level of protection for the longest period of time.” Pick up this drugstore sunscreen, and you’ll find that it’s non-greasy and very protective for the price.
Blue Lizard Australian Sunscreen, Sensitive SPF 30+
If you prefer your products as clean and non-irritating as possible, check out the Blue Lizard Australian Sunscreen, Sensitive SPF 30+, which is available for purchase at Amazon and Target. The mineral-based sunscreen is free of potentially irritating chemicals, parabens, and fragrances, making it ideal for anyone with sensitive skin. Plus, its heat-sensitive bottle turns blue when exposed to UV rays, so you’ll always know when it’s time to reapply.
EltaMD UV Aero Broad-Spectrum SPF 45
Though it has a higher price tag, EltaMD is a dermatologists’ favorite brand of sun protection. The brand offers zinc-based, broad-spectrum sunscreens for all skin types, but one of its most beloved products is the UV Aero Broad-Spectrum SPF 45. This spray sunscreen is great for reaching those tricky areas, and though you must rub it in, the formulation helps ensure that you cover every inch of your body. Plus, it’s incredibly gentle, so you can wear it under makeup or apply it to skin with rosacea or other conditions.
