By this point, we can’t argue that more sun naturally means more sunscreen. but it’s still hard to find the perfect formulation for you. Like the perfect moisturiser, it can be hard to find an SPF product that suits both your skin and your lifestyle. Some brands are more reliable but some are infinitely more affordable, and too much back and forth can lose you precious time in protecting your skin. We scoured our local drugstores for our best options, and here are our top picks for this coming season.
Many of us would remember Coppertone from our childhood days, but thankfully, their products are no longer known just for being goopy or strong-smelling. The brand’s latest lightweight line presents us with the ClearlySheer Spray For Body ($10) and should already be out at a drug store near you. An SPF of 30 protects against both UVA and UVB rays, and the spray won’t irritate anyone with overly delicate skin either, as it’s been clinically tested on acne-prone skin. Boasting 80 minutes of water resistance, Coppertone’s ClearlySheer Spray for Body is likely to be a hit for family picnics and beach days alike—say goodbye to sticky lotion!
