6 of the Best Sunscreens for Summer

As the temperatures increase and we gear up to spend more time in the outdoors, emphasis should be placed on protecting your skin from the elements — and one of the easiest ways to do this is with a great sunscreen.

But with so many on the market, how can you be sure that you're getting the best sunscreens? Well, below are six fantastic sunscreens that you should definitely know about:

The dermatologically approved La Roche-Posay's Anthelios Melt-In Sunscreen Milk is a non-greasy, fast absorbing sunscreen that will fill all your needs this summer. It offers a broad-spectrum protection with an SPF 60 for the face and the body (all-in-one). It’s also water resistant for up to 80 minutes and has been created with a fewer number of ingredients — which means that it is approved for sensitive skin (and was tested on such).

Clarins is a brand that has become trusted in the beauty industry, and its
UV Plus Anti-Pollution is a sunscreen with an SPF 50 and it has a lot to offer: it protects your skin from both UVA/UVB rays, but also pollution and free radicals, making it perfect for everyday usage.

If you're looking for a sunscreen that's great to wear with your makeup then Kate Somerville UncompliKated SPF 50 Soft Focus Makeup Setting Spray is a fantastic choice. It's suitable for all skin types (except sensitive), it offers a broad-spectrum SPF 50 sunscreen protection and contains no Parabens, Sulfates or Phthalates. Plus, the application process is made easy by the aerosol can.

A sunscreen that does cater for sensitive skin, however, is Farmacy Green Screen Daily Environmental Protector Broad Spectrum SPF 30 Sunscreen with Echinacea GreenEnvy. The product has been created with naturally derived ingredients, it is free from formaldehyde and artificial coloring. It also helps with anti-aging as it fights against the environmental factors (including sunlight and pollution).

Supergoop! Is another brand you should know in 2017, and their Super Power Sunscreen Mousse Broad Spectrum SPF 50 is a must-try. It offers broad-spectrum UV protection but is also water resistant and has hydrating properties so your skin will not only be protected from the elements, but also nourished.

Shiseido Future Solution LX Universal Defense Broad Spectrum sunscreen is on the pricier end of the scale (on Sephora’s website it’s $90) but it is multipurpose and can be used for both the body or the face. It also blends in easily and is not greasy, but the most important part is that it does actually offer protection for your skin: with an SPF 50 + it helps fight UV rays, pollution, and photo-environmental radicals, plus helps prevents signs of aging including dark spots and wrinkles.
