* Most important product you can buy for the summertime
* New formulations make application a breeze
* New brands feature skin soothing and moisturizing ingredients
Now that summer is officially upon us, you must get your sunscreen habit (or lack thereof) in order. But aside from the generic drugstore brands, which often don’t address specific skin issues or needs, it’s hard to know which sunscreen brands to try out.
To make it a little easier, we have scoured a few of the latest and greatest products and formulas, to find five new sunscreen brands that will not only protect you from the sun’s harmful rays, but will work wonders for your skin as well.
1. CoTZ PLUS SPF 58
CoTZ Plus SPF 58 is an advanced mineral sunscreen suitable for all skin types. It provides broad-spectrum, UVA and UVB protection without causing heat build-up, clogging pores or irritating skin. This lightweight, non-greasy formula creates a physical barrier of micronized titanium and zinc that reflects the sun’s rays away from your skin, preventing premature aging, hyper-pigmentation and reducing the risk of skin cancer.
Known as the “healthier sunscreen,” CoTZ products are free of oils, fragrances, preservatives, gluten and phthalates and don’t irritate or sting the skin, making them ideal for even the most sensitive of skins.
2. Neogen Dermalogy Day-Light Protection Sunscreen SPF 50
Korean skincare’s latest release, Neogen Dermalogy Day-Light Sunscreen is an ultra-lightweight and quick-absorbing formula that nourishes the skin and promotes anti-aging with natural ingredients. This fluid-like formula offers major broad-spectrum SPF 50 and delivers light but nourishing hydration from honey, rose and raspberry extracts. These extracts will help keep dry skin types hydrated and protected.
3. Supergoop! Super Power Sunscreen Mousse Broad Spectrum SPF 50
One of the newest and unique formulations to come out of sunscreen, the Supergoop! Super Power Sunscreen Mousse SPF 50 is a lightweight whip that delivers broad spectrum UV protection with an antioxidant-rich, super-hydrating, water-resistant formula.
This lightweight mousse makes protecting your skin from the sun’s rays easy and fun. The whip is formulated with a complex blend of natural oils that act as a daily moisturizer and sun protection in one.
4. COOLA Sport Sunscreen Spray SPF 30, Citrus Mimosa
Coola Sport Sunscreen Spray SPF 30 provides broad-spectrum sun protection for your body while hydrating the skin. Aloe, cucumber, algae and strawberry soothe and cool the skin and offer anti-aging antioxidant benefits. Red raspberry seed oil, rich in omegas 3 and 6, soothe inflammation and promote elasticity.
The best part of this sunscreen is the citrus mimosa scent featuring sparkling aromas of juicy sweet orange, lemon and tangerine oils. It’s perfect for a day at the beach, but won’t seem out of place when you put it on for brunch on the patio, either.
5. Colorescience Sunforgettable Loose Mineral Sunscreen Brush, SPF 50
Last but not least is Colorescience’s Sunforgettable Loose Mineral Sunscreen Brush Broad Spectrum SPF 50. This is a portable, water-resistant powder sunscreen with a self-dispensing brush that makes sun protection application simple throughout the day. With a natural tint of color and SPF 50 protection from harmful UVA/UVB rays, this powder will help keep your complexion fresh and easily applies over makeup.
The InStyle Award-winning brush contains specialty ingredients such as zinc and titanium dioxide for all natural sun protection, iron oxides for sheer, natural-looking color and red algae which guards against environmental stressors.
The best part is that a portion of proceeds from every Colorescience Sunforgettable Brush go to Sunstoppable to help fight against skin cancer and educate today’s youth on why UV protection matters.
