Okay fine, I get that you’re probably sick of my sun-shaming, but surely it bears repeating that sunscreen truly is of the essence if you want to stave off skin cancer (not to mention freckles and fine lines).
But what about the suffocating stickiness? I hear you, guys. The solution’s simple: Let SPF 50 be your upper ceiling when choosing sun care products, as anything above that (SPF 120, anyone?) tends to get exponentially gooeier in texture. (And yes, all of the product recommendations in this piece stay within this self-imposed SPF 50 threshold.)
Even better, this current crop of super sunscreens do triple duty as skin-soothing serums and complexion-perfecting primers. Click through for five of my favourite protective panaceas, for your perusal and prospective purchase, please!
