Summer is here, and the sun has finally come out to play. This is definitely the season to spend more time outdoors doing all the activities you love. One thing we must not forget to do is wear the best sunscreens. Yeah, I’m sure you all were told this a million times by your parents when you were younger, but do you still use it?
According to Philly Voice, only 42 percent of Americans apply sunscreen to exposed skin. To be fair, before I had Laila, I barely had worn sunscreen but once I had her something in my mind clicked. If my daughter must wear sunscreen, I’m pretty sure I have to as well. Even though I don’t burn as fast as some thanks to the melanin in my skin, I still want to protect myself from damaging UV rays. So, if you want to start or continue to protect your skin this summer, check out the five best sunscreens to buy now.
Tip: I recommend purchasing a sunscreen with an SPF between 30-50 for maximum defense.
Kiehl’s Activated Sun Protector Water-Light Lotion (Best Overall)
Banana Boat SunComfort Sunscreen (Hydrating)
Sun Bum Moisturizing Sunscreen Lotion (Sensitive Skin)
Neutrogena Sheer Zinc Sunscreen Lotion (Eczema Friendly)
Aveeno Mineral Sensitive Skin Sunscreen (My Pick)
