It’s time to really get serious about using sunscreen on the daily. Thanks to the many recent innovations in sunscreen tech (yes it’s a thing!), you no longer have to worry about the combination of sticky and thick cream being slathered on your face! Now, there are powerful sunscreens that will give you the protection you need, minus the inconvenient residues and discomfort.
Take a look at the top must-have sunscreens for the summer.
Hawaiian Tropic Sunscreen
The one thing that many people don’t consider is that the sun dehydrates the skin rather quickly. Thanks to elements like the sun and the wind, your skin can lose hydration within hours, which can cause a number of long-term issues. With the shea butter complex in Hawaiian Tropic sunscreen, your skin stays moisturized and protected during your time at the beach or on the trail.
Neutrogena Sheer Zinc Dry-Touch Sunscreen
Neutrogena is known for more than its rather awesome makeup removers and moisturizers. Its sunscreen formula is one of the very best. This is especially true if you have sensitive skin! Neutrogena sunscreen ensures that your skin has full protection minus the harmful chemicals that are involved in some formulas. This brand has been a dermatologist’s favorite for quite a while, and for a good reason!
Bottom line: If you have sensitive skin and want to make sure that your sunscreen is not irritating or discomforting in any way, Neutrogena sunscreen is the way to go.

This tinted, broad spectrum SPF 40 sunscreen is about to become your best friend. It’s a multi-functional formula that illuminates your skin, while protecting you from harsh UV rays at the same time.

For those worried about their skin getting oily from sunscreens, the Coppertone spray is your solution. This sunscreen isn’t only water resistant, but has a matte finish. That ensures you get the right protection while keeping a neutral skin tone.
