We all know we’re supposed to protect ourselves from the sun’s harmful UBA and UVB rays by staying out of the sun at mid-day, wearing protective clothing, and slathering ourselves generously, and repeatedly, with sunscreen with an SPF rating of 15 or better. But with so many sunscreens on the market, how do you know which are good for your skin type, which actually work, and which are drugstore-shelf junk? I can help! I’ve found a few excellent (though pricey) brands of sunscreen, and they all work marvelously! Here are 7 of my favorite sunscreens.
1. Tocca SPF 30 Towelettes
Price: $24.00 at anthropologie.com
Enjoy the lush Stella scent with the added bonus of skin protection anytime, anywhere, with these convenient towelettes. There are 10 in the re-sealable packet, perfect for stashing in your handbag. The wipes also contain avocado oil and aloe, so you’ll be protected and hydrated all at once! This is hands-down one of my favorite sunscreens for how it smells, not to mention how well it works!
