Sunscreen has come so far in the past decade. The product selection is vast and you can easily avoid that goopy feel that was the norm years ago. When I was growing up there were so few choices and they all made me feel gross and miserable. The great thing is that now, there is an SPF for all. Here are my all time favorites based on ingredients, overall feel and body parts. I like to use different products on my face, lips and body. Remember to reapply your sunscreen no matter what you are doing often. Dermatologists say to reapply every two hours and way more if you are in the water or sweating. For athletics and swimming be sure to use water resistant formulas.

I always have lots of sunscreens available for any given time. There is some in my golf locker, in my purse, pool tote and lots in my medicine cabinet. I don’t tend to stick to one brand, I like to mix things up. I do have my favorites I’ve had great luck with all of these time and time again.

Suncreens for the Face

When it comes to sunscreen for the face you can go with tinted or untinted formulas. If I’m going to an event I might use the tinted as a foundation, but typically I stick to the clear formulas. I like to use products that leave a matte finish so I can apply other makeup over it.
