May is Skin Cancer Awareness Month and today is #NationalSunScreenDay! So, we thought we’d share with you what we believe are the BEST sun care products available.
Before we tell you our favorites, we’ll tell you how to pick a winner. When looking for a good sunscreen you want to pay attention to a few details:
The Skin Cancer Foundation recommends a minimum of SPF 15 for everyday use, and SPF 30 for extended outdoor activity. It’s important to reapply every 2 hours.
This label indicates that the sunscreen protects against UVA and UVB rays.
You can get a sunburn even while you are in the water, so look for a sunscreen that is labeled water resistant. Pay attention to how much time it is resistant and reapply often.
Seek the Seal
Look for the The Skin Cancer Foundation Seal of Recommendation. This will ensure that you are protecting your skin properly.
