Summer Essential: The Best Sunscreens for Face, Lips and Body
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.
Sunscreen Powders for Face
Set your makeup and apply your sunscreen at the same time with these brush on powders. Easy to keep in your purse for touch ups throughout the day.
Sunscreens for the Lips
Don’t forget those smackers! Keeping your lips looking lush, plump and beautiful is most important. Here are some fabulous sun sticks to choose from. While we are on the subject of lips, also check out my favorite picks for lip plumpers and glosses (non SPF)
Sunscreens for the body
Many people forget that they need to take care of their body when outdoors as much as they do their face. These sunscreens will protect and help nourish your skin, many have antioxidants and other beneficial skin ingredients. They feel great too!
