Be gone painful sunburns! HollywoodLife.com is ready to make sure that your beach bag is fully stocked for summer with the best sunscreen sprays, lotions and serums, all of which will protect your skin from harsh UVA and UVB rays. Whether you rock a retro swimsuit a la Taylor Swift or sport a string bikini like Rihanna, it’s important to know that one staple will never go out of style: sunscreen!
Best Sunscreens — SHOP Our Top Pick For The Warm Weather
Shopping for sunscreen can be overwhelming, but fortunately, we have rounded up a well-curated collection that is suitable for any and every occasion.
First, for a long, active day at the beach, it’s important to continue to apply your sunscreen every two hours, and more if you go in the water.
If you’re inclined to paddle board, surf and swim in the ocean, we suggest a reliable lotion for your face and a spray for your bikini body. We recommend the following combination: Neutrogena CoolDry Sport Sunscreen Lotion SPF 70 and Neutrogena CoolDry Sport Sunscreen Spray SPF 30.
As for the younger set, focus on making the sunscreen process a fun activity by using a kid friendly product such as the Australian Gold Hello Kitty Mineral Faces Sunscreen Lotion, SPF 45. The adorable packaging on this broad spectrum SPF 45 can get anyone excited to protect their skin. Plus, children with sensitive skin will appreciate that Hello Kitty’s SPF is fragrance-free and water-resistant.
“My skin is more on the dry side, so I need a really thick moisturizer all the time. There’s one that’s from Natura Bissē – the C+C Vitamin Cream. It smells really strongly of orange, and I think it’s nice.”
Shop The Best Sunscreens To Protect Your Skin This Summer
Meanwhile, if you’re looking to add a skin protective product that does double duty (by guarding your skin from the sun and preventing aging), we suggest a practical serum like La Roche-Posay Anthelios AOX .
As an anti-aging serum with SPF 50, this all-in-one product is worth the price tag since it visibly corrects and protects against the signs of aging! The best part of all? The serum feels weightless on the skin!
Lastly, we would be remiss if we didn’t mention the important of protecting your lips from the UV rays! Add either cult favorite, Carmex Lip Balm in a Tube, or soothing lip saver, Yes to Cucumbers Natural Sunscreen Stick SPF 30, to your arsenal.
Now, all you need to stock up on is a chic wide-brim hat and giant Jackie O inspired sunglasses and you’re ready to make a stylish splash!
