May 27 is National Sunscreen Day so we’ve put together a list of our favorite face and body sunscreens.

When spring and summer hit I always make it a point to have my favorite sunscreen on hand at all times. In fact, since there’s nothing sexy about sun damage, I’m always packing at least two, one for my face and one for my body. Here’s a list of my favorite sunscreens to get you through the summer sunburn-free!

Face

Benefit Dream Screen

best sunscreens for your face

Benefit Dream Screen, $32

I’ve looked high and low for a sunscreen that doesn’t add to my oil problem, and it just doesn’t get better than Dream Screen. This pretty little product with broad spectrum SPF 45 is my favorite face sunscreen. Its lightweight oil-free formula transforms my excessively shiny skin to silky smooth perfection. And even though it makes my face look matte, Dream Screen has been formulated to moisturize and hydrate skin. I used it every day on a recent trip to Cabo San Lucas. My face stayed completely sunburn-free despite accidentally falling asleep in the sun on more than one occasion, which is never a smart move! Luckily, Dream Screen had my back while during my seaside snoozing.

Kiehl’s Clearly Corrective Dark Circle Perfector, $38

Kiehl’s Clearly Corrective Dark Circle Perfector is a must-have beauty item for more a couple of reasons. Not only does it instantly brighten the delicate undereye area with sheer coverage, but its formula is packed with activated C and licorice root extract to reduce the appearance of dark circles. On top of that, its SPF 30 ensures that your undereye area is protected from harmful rays and sun damage. Adios to crows feet, dark circles, and tired-looking eyes!

Body

Supergoop Sun Defying Sunscreen Oil

Supergoop Sun Defying Sunscreen Oil, $12-$34

Ever since I can remember, I’ve heard doctors and skincare specialists telling beach goers to put down the tanning oil and slather on sunscreen. So I was intrigued to come across Supergoop’s Sun Defying Sunscreen oil with SPF 50. While it might technically be an oil, the formula is non-greasy, so it doesn’t leave your skin looking shiny. Along with sun protection, this oil is formulated with tocotrienals, potent antioxidants that are sixty times more powerful than vitamin E.  These antioxidants, along with meadowfoam seed oil and argan oil, diminish signs of UV damage by neutralizing free-radical damage. They also prevent moisture loss and nourish the skin.

COOLA Sport SPF 30 Sunscreen Spray

It’s also infused with antioxidants to fight signs of aging. The product’s easy spray application and water resistant formula makes it great for anyone who’s on-the-go and looking to have fun in the sun. With scents like piña colada and citrus mimosa, you might have to swat away your friends when they reach for your beach bag to help themselves to this delicious smelling sunscreen.
