Sunscreen Meets Primer: Chantecaille Ultra Sun Protection Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 45 Primer
Nothing is worse than sunscreen that leaves skin feeling slick and sticky. This sunscreen primer is lightweight, oil-free and leaves behind a matte finish. It will also give you broad spectrum (that covers UVA and UVB rays) protection.
Totally Sweat Proof: Neutrogena CoolDry Sport Sunscreen SPF 30
Stay protected during your workout with this sweat and water resistant SPF 30 formula. It’s lightweight and fast absorbing, so you can get back on the court quickly. And don’t forget to wear a hat for extra protection!
Protect Your Lips: Supergoop! Acai Fusion Lip Balm SPF 30
This sensitive area needs sun protection too! This SPF 30 balm will leave lips protected and hydrated thanks to a combination of shea butter, honey and sunflower seed oil.
On-the-Go Protection: Colorescience Sunforgettable Total Protection Brush-On Shield SPF 50
Just because you put sunscreen on in the AM doesn’t mean you’re protected all day. The FDA recommends you reapply every two hours — and this SPF 50 mineral powder makes it super easy. Swipe on over makeup to add a layer of protection and help reduce shine.
For the Little Ones: MDSolarSciences Mineral KidCrème SPF 40
This gentle, mineral sunscreen is recommended by both the Skin Cancer Foundation and Environmental Working Group for kids. It offers broad spectrum protection that is sweat and water resistant so you won’t have to worry about irritation or stinging eyes while you’re at the beach.
