Summer’s Best Sunscreen
Sunscreen: It’s one of those habits that, like flossing or taking vitamins, you know you need to do, but it can easily fall to the bottom of your wellness checklist when you’re pressed for time. And let’s face it, in the past, applying and wearing sunscreen hasn’t been all that pleasant – think greasy hands and chalky-looking skin. It’s a far cry from the bronzed beach-babe vibe you’re going for.
But when you consider that wearing sun protection could mean the difference between looking like Gisele Bündchen frolicking on the beach and the leathery-skinned Magda from There’s Something About Mary – or, worse, upping your risk of skin cancer – adding SPF to your regimen really is a no-brainer.
What’s more, today’s sunscreen formulas look almost nothing like the skin-suffocating concoctions of years past and are, dare we say, pleasant to use. The oily feel and ghostly white layers of yesterday’s sunscreens have been replaced with lightweight lotions and sprays that boast high sun protection while delivering skin benefits like moisture, antioxidants and even anti-aging ingredients. Our roundup will help you find new solutions to old problems so you can enjoy a worry-free summer.
