The Different Types of SPF You Need

Is that really protecting your skin?

Even though most of us love getting that summer glow, we’ve heard it enough times now to know that sunscreen is a beauty must-have for summer days. Preventing wrinkles and deadly skin cancers are two of the top reasons to slather some on each morning. But what types will work best for your skin type? And which will stay on through even the most intense workouts? We’ll help you find out the sunscreen you need.

The Work-Out Sunscreen

Due to new FDA health regulations, which were released in mid-June, you may no longer see terms such as “waterproof” and “sweat-proof” on sunscreen packaging. So does that mean you should ditch the sunscreen altogether? The answer is definitely not! Look for new terms such as “water and sweat resistant.” Banana Boat offers some great Sport sunscreens, such as Sport Performance Sunscreen in SPF 30 and SPF 50.

The Sensitive Skin Sunscreen

This type of sunscreen is often combined with moisturizer, as it must be gentle enough for everyday use so that you can put it on each morning without being bothered by that greasy feel. Try either Neutrogena Healthy Defense Daily Moisturizer in SPF 50 or Aveeno Positively Radiant Daily Moisturizer in SPF 30.

The Tinted Sunscreen

Don’t have time to apply foundation? Or maybe you’re the kind of gal that doesn’t wear foundation? Then tinted moisturizers with SPF are a great way to add some glow and coverage to your face. Stila Illuminating Oil-Free Tinted Moisturizer in SPF 20 offers the perfect combo of coverage and glow.
