Now that summer is right around the corner, I’m sure a lot of you are spending your time outside and in the sun. Many of you are on summer vacation and are heading to the beach and pool, but that’s not the only time you need to wear SPF. You should have it on every day! Wearing SPF protects you from sun damage, which in turn protects you from skin cancer, aging and other skin problems.
One of the reasons people don’t like to wear sunscreen, though, is because it can be greasy and make you break out. I used to avoid SPF until I thought I had melanoma and found ones that didn’t make my skin freak. Now I’m such an advocate and never leave my apartment without it on. If you have a problem with SPF making you break out, try these 10 awesome ones instead:
Aveeno Protect + Hydrate Lotion Sunscreen with Broad Spectrum SPF 50
Aveeno is great because it's made for sensitive skin so their products are designed specifically to NOT irritate your skin. I love their SPFs, but this one is really hydrating without being greasy.
California Baby SPF 30+ Sunblock Stick
Guess what? You can use baby products even though you're not a baby! This sunblock stick is chemical and fragrance-free and hypoallergenic.
CeraVe® Sunscreen Stick with SPF 50
CeraVe is my go-to brand when I'm really breaking out. Their products are highly recommended among dermatologists and for good reason. This sunscreen stick is the best. It's oil-free AND it contains hyaluronic acid, which is absolutely incredible for your skin.
CLINIQUE Broad Spectrum SPF 50 Sunscreen Face Cream
I love this CLINIQUE SPF because it's broad spectrum and oil-free. The reviews on this alone speak for themselves, but I've used this and love it.
Neutrogena Clear Face Liquid Lotion Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 55
Neutrogena's SPFs are usually great for problem skin or for anyone who hates that greasy sunscreen feel. They've stepped up their game by introducing their Clear Face SPF, which is amazing. AND their products are super affordable.
PETER THOMAS ROTH Instant Mineral Powder SPF 45
This is by far my favorite product in my makeup bag. I use this every single day on top of my makeup, and it's incredible. You don't get that greasy feeling AT ALL because it's a powder, and you can reapply whenever you want. I keep one at home and one in my purse!
SUPERGOOP! Everyday Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 30
I know SUPERGOOP! is a silly name, but their sunscreen is not silly. This stuff is great and lightweight.
Yes to Cucumbers Natural Sunscreen SPF 30
I just got this the other day and LOVE it. Yes to products are full of fruit and veggie ingredients that are good for your skin. Yes to Cucumbers have soothing properties so they make your skin feel amazing. This SPF is so lightweight I didn't even feel like I had anything on!
MDSOLARSCIENCES Mineral Sunscreen Stick Broad Spectrum SPF 40 UVA-UVB Sunscreen
I know, another sunscreen stick! But these things are the best because you can easily apply them while you're at the beach or pool. MDSolarSciences is a brand that specifically works with dermatologists to figure out the best methods of sun care. Their products are dermatologist tested and approved so you can't go wrong!
Sun Bum SPF 30 Moisturizing Sunscreen Lotion
Sun Bum is one of my fave sun care brands because they're cute, affordable and don't affect my skin. I love their regular SPF 30 moisturizing sunscreen and have never broken out from using it!
