There are two types of people in this world: those who lounge by the pool with a book, and those that dive right in. Luckily, inner mermaids with delicate fins don’t have to worry about rays while practicing their backstroke. Shiseido’s Wet Force line now comes with a face and body protector specially formulated for sensitive skin. So just keep swimming—but be sure to reapply the fragrance-free formula every 80 minutes…or whenever you’re sick of playing Marco Polo.
Supergoop created a sunscreen and setting spray in one, thus saving us from melted foundation and crab face—aka, summertime sadness. After your last cat eye flick, mist on this refreshing minty spray to lock everything in place and get a dose of SPF 50. Here’s the real kicker: You can reapply all day, err day without disrupting your strobe in the slightest. Now if only we could say the same for BBQ sauce…
Everything about Fresh Sugar Sport SPF30 screams summer—from it’s neon packaging to its orange ice-pop scent. In true Fresh fashion, the formula is sweetened up with skin-nourishing sugar. It’s also perfect for surfers outfitted in wetsuits since it’s meant to be applied to exposed areas like lips, face, and around the eyes. Plus it’s water resistant. But it’s suitable for anyone with a competitive spirit, since it’s a clear winner in our eyes.
“Thanks, it has SPF” is what you should say when someone compliments your supple lips. Coola LipLux’s creamy (read, not waxy) formula has more than usual, clocking in at SPF 30. Why do your lips need sun protection? It helps prevent photo-aging and burning, which aren’t things you want to kiss hello to anytime soon. Coola’s version comes loaded with nutrients and antioxidants to keep your lips smiling.
A SPF-infused tinted powder that fits in your clutch? Genius. ColorScience’s Sunforgettable Mineral Sunscreen Brush SPF50 comes in a purse-friendly tube for easy reapplication. Think of it as a way to shine-proof your complexion while also protecting your skin from both UVA and UVB rays. That’s what we like to call a win-win.
