Don’t Forget Your Sunscreen, Stay Protected All Summer Long

The temperature is hot, the sun is beating down, and you’re relaxing by the pool for the fifth day in a row. That can only mean one thing: summer is in full swing. With the excitement of the sunny season, it can be easy too forget to apply your SPF — or you’re just too lazy to bother with it. Don’t worry, we’ve all been there and I definitely have too.

This step is actually the most important in any skin care routine. Our skin is too precious to keep getting sunburn after sunburn, it really is important to take good care of your skin, especially when you’re spending your days in the sun.

I’ll admit, that greasy feel and distinctive sunscreen scent doesn’t exactly scream, “Hey I want to put this all over my body.” Luckily, brands have created sunscreen products that feel just as smooth going on as your favorite moisturizer. We’ve rounded up our top 5 products below, so you can stay protected and feel good all in one bottle.

This sunscreen makes that greasy feeling a thing in the past. When you wear this, it softens your skin while giving off a light tropical scent, it’s like you’re wearing a moisturizer instead. This is also available in SPF 50, and a version that is infused with sparkles. The great thing about the sport one — it’s water resistant for up to 80 minutes!

2. Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Body Mist SPF 30

This sunscreen is so lightweight it doesn’t feel like you’re wearing any at all, what’s better than that? The spray comes out so powerful, it feel like you really do cover every inch of your skin. Make sure to always double check though, it can be easy to miss a spot with any spray sunscreen.

If this sunscreen can keep my pale skin from getting sun burnt in the Caribbean, then I’m 100 percent certain it will protect you. It’s definitely not a lie when the Neutrogena says beach defense. This will protect you skin in the strongest UV rays.

People often forget about their lips when they hit the beach, but your lippies can get sunburnt too! Aquaphor is such an incredible lip balm. It can heal the driest of lips and keep them baby soft all day long. I’l admit, this particular lip balm can be a little thick which some people aren’t crazy about. As long as you have an SPF infused lip balm, and apply multiple times while you’re out in the sun, you’ll be good to go.

Applying your sunscreen doesn’t have to be terrible. Think of it as a summer moisturizer with an added benefit! Oh, and for two extra tips: 1. Make sure to use at least SPF 30 (50 is even better) 2. Re-apply sunscreen every 2 hours for full protection.
