Sunscreens for Summer

Top 4 Healthy Sunscreen Picks

 

It’s finally sweet summertime, which means sunscreen is probably on your shopping list – the question is, what sunscreen will you buy? You want a product that will effectively prevent sun damage while reducing your risk of skin cancer, and fortunately, the American Academy of Dermatology provides some recommendations that will narrow your choices. An effective sunscreen should offer broad-spectrum (UVA and UVB) protection, have an SPF of 30 or higher, and be water-resistant.

Beyond that, you may want to choose a sunscreen based on its ingredients and additional benefits. Here, we’re featuring some healthy options to work into your skincare routine.
