The list below scratches the surface, highlighting some of the best-selling sunscreens on Amazon, plus a few formulas that make sunscreen much more palatable to wear.
In recent years, Supergoop has been cranking out new formulas for any need — like powder sunscreen you can swipe on over your makeup during the day or a sunscreen oil that holds in moisture on your skin.
This EltaMD sunscreen is well-loved because despite the fact that it uses zinc oxide, it goes on clear and blends into your skin without leaving a white cast.
Not only does sunscreen help prevent skin cancer, it also stops the sun’s rays from breaking down the collagen in your skin, which leads to wrinkles and sagging.
Once they reach the six-month milestone, you can use sunscreen, but stick to formulas that are free of dyes and scents and that use minerals (zinc oxide and titanium dioxide) for sun protection.
If you have ever struggled to rub in the white cast mineral sunscreens create only to end up looking like a ghost, this is your new sunscreen.
Okay, if you are a skin care nerd like I am, prepare to fall down the Asian sunscreen rabbit hole.
Physical sunscreens — with zinc oxide, titanium dioxide or both — are good for those with sensitive skin, and new formulas are much easier to blend than earlier, chalky versions. 5.

I’m talking facial sunscreens that apply and blend like makeup primer, spray sunscreens you can reapply to your kids right after they jump out of the pool and lightweight lotions you’ll reach for every day.
Any doctor will tell you that sunscreen is the secret to great skin.
Try Banana Boat’s Sun Comfort Broad Spectrum Sunscreen Lotion (SPF 50, $10. 06 at Amazon) for a similar hydrating option.
Everyone should wear sunscreen, regardless of your skin color. 2.
If you want or need something without a scent, try Banana Boat’s Simply Protect Sports sunscreen, which doesn’t have any added fragrance.
Sunscreen is a contentious product because there’s often a lot of disagreement on which sunscreen chemicals are safe, what SPF is appropriate and whether sunscreen harms coral reefs or not. 1.
Sport and water-resistant sunscreens can feel thick and greasy, but I like Neutrogena’s Beach Defense line because it’s more lightweight and smells like a tropical beverage (it has notes of piña colada if I remember correctly).
Kids rarely want to sit still long enough for you to apply (and reapply) sunscreen.
The American Academy of Dermatology recommends using broad-spectrum SPF 30 sunscreen, which blocks UVA and UVB rays. 6.
Doctors recommend that you limit your baby’s sun exposure with hats, clothing and shade and that you not to use sunscreen on infants under six months.
Of any facial sunscreen I’ve used, I’ve loved this the most because it feels like a primer and blurs my pores.
