The Best Sunscreens

The Best Sunscreens

By Susan "Honey" Good

As promised. dear readers, today I am sharing some of my favorite sunscreens (pictured above with a few of my favorite sunglasses) as well as other brands that I recommend for protecting skin, year round. 

Protecting your skin from the sun is not a thing to be taken lightly! I speak from experience having been diagnosed with melanoma years ago. I was very lucky in that the melanoma was caught early. (Read my story, "How to survive: The Fear of Cancer here.) But the importance of using an effective sunscreen can't be understated.

It is not just a "beauty" must do... do it for your health!

La Roche-Posay Anthelios SPF 60 Spray Sunscreen is the perfect product for full body coverage against harmful UVA and UVB rays. Since the formula is dispersed through a sprayer, it makes it easy to protect those hard to reach areas on our bodies. I love the non-greasy finish. Anthelios 60 spray stands above the others because it does not contain alcohol and other skin irritants.

5oz for $35.99 at Walgreens or online here:

Anthelios 60 Cooling Water-Lotion Sunscreen provides and elegant light-weight feel on the skin with its light-as-air texture. The product hydrates your face and body while protecting it from the sun’s harmful rays. It's waterproof so, after application, you can take a dip and enjoy 80 minutes of sun protection!

5oz for $35.99 at DERMSTORE or online here:

Lancome's Bienfait UV Super Fluid Facial Sunscreen is a lightweight, oil-free, broad-spectrum sunscreen that is the perfect product to add to your morning beauty routine. It can be applied after your moisturizer, under makeup or you can wear it with nothing else. It will help protect your skin from UV damage and will leave your skin feeling like nothing is on it and yet looking flawless.

Fresh products are known for providing a lightweight feel and smelling amazing. This is true of their Peony Brightening UV Shield Sunscreen with SPF 50. This SPF boasts a 3-in-1 formula to brighten and hydrate your complexion and to protect skin from UV rays. Along with that, it helps to reduce signs of aging like dark spots and hyperpigmentation.
