Summer is here, and with trips to the beach, outdoor parties, and even, finally, outdoor concerts, you will need to protect your skin while having fun. We’ve found 5 amazing brands of sunscreen you should try out this summer. 

CeraVe Sunscreen

CeraVe 30 SPF Body Sunscreen
Ulta

This 100% mineral sunscreen is excellent for protecting your skin. It provides SPF 30 protection with zinc oxide and titanium dioxide, is lightweight, and hydrates your skin.

Another great mineral-based option is Bare Republic’s SPF 50 Mineral Sunscreen Lotion. It’s water resistant, provides broad spectrum UVA and UVB protection, and is vegan, chemical-free, and paraben-free. Bare Republic also offers sunscreen spray as well as products for your face.

Supergoop! Sunscreen

Supergoop! PLAY Body Mousse SPF 50 Sunscreen
Supergoop!

The name Supergoop may be deceiving, as their products are anything but goopy. For instance, their PLAY Body Mousse SPF 50 with Blue Sea Kale is a super lightweight, whipped sunscreen that is easy to apply and not at all greasy. Supergoop! sunscreens are cruelty-free, clean, and reef-safe, so you can rest easy when you use their products. They have a wide range of products that protect your skin, including eye shadow, hand screen, lip shield, and mineral powder.

Blue Lizard Sunscreen

Blue Lizard SPF 30+ Sunscreen
Walgreens

Blue Lizard mineral sunscreen that is chemical free, and dermatologist recommended. And although its protection is excellent, it’s their Smart Bottle Technology that really makes them special. Their sunscreen bottles will turn blue in the sunlight to remind you it’s time to lather up. Check out their baby sunscreen, mineral stick sunscreen, or sport sunscreen, along with the rest of their sunscreen lineup

Badger Company Sunscreen

Badger Broad Spectrum SPF 30 Natural Mineral Sunscreen
iHerb

Badger Company Clear Zinc Sunscreen is unusual in that most zinc sunscreens are thick and white, leaving streaks on your skin. The clear zinc means you don’t have to worry about that!  Their SPF 40 sunscreen is un-scented, water-resistant and hypoallergenic. They have a variety of lotions and sticks, a baby sunscreen, and even a sunscreen that doubles as bug spray
