The Best Sunscreens To Protect Your Skin This Summer

Finding the perfect sunscreen for the summer can be a total nightmare. But don't panic, here are the best sunscreens to protect your skin this summer!

If you’re planning to spend plenty of time sunbathing or relaxing under the hot sun this summer, then you’ll need a good sunscreen! Sunscreens are essential skincare products that people often overlook because they can be sticky, cause breakouts or leave a white cast. If you are planning to stay out in the sun for extended periods of time over the summer, ideally you require an SPF 30 or SPF 50, which protect your skin from burning for 30 or 50 times longer than it otherwise would. Finding the right sunscreen that offers UVA and UVB protection is integral to your skin’s health; it contributes to preventing your skin from both premature aging and sunburn (as well as skin cancer!). Here are the best sunscreens to protect your skin this summer!

1. La Roche-Posay Anthelios XL Ultra Comfort Cream SPF 50+

La Roche Posay has a reputation for being high quality, suitable for sensitive skin and effective (this may have something to do with the fact that it is a French skincare line!). This product is no exception. Not only does this sunscreen offer UVA and UVB  SPF 50+ protection, it is also fragrance, paraben, and preservative free, as well as water resistant. To top it all off, it is designed to be tolerated by super sensitive and intolerant skin types, and doesn’t sting or irritate sensitive eyes! At What more could you ask for in a sunscreen?! At an affordable £12.38, this nifty product is a true bargain, topping the list of the best sunscreens.

2. Avène Anti-ageing Suncare Very High Protection SPF50+

Like La Roche Posay, Avene is a renowned French skincare brand that offers great, high-quality skincare options for sensitive skin types. This product is marketed as a long-lasting, non-irritating sunscreen for sensitive skin, so it is perfect for all skin types. The sunscreen also contains Ascofilline, Avene’s signature thermal spring water – to soothe – and a unique SunSitive complex to protect skin and promote collagen regeneration, so you’re getting active skincare as well as sunscreen in one product! This makes it perfect for those approaching their mid-twenties onwards. The packaging is also extremely efficient as it comes with a pump, so the product remains airtight.

3. Keihl’s Activated Sun Protector

This is a great higher end SPF 50 sunscreen if you’re looking for something that is ‘water light’, paraben, fragrance, and oil free, whilst being water resistant. It is also non-comedogenic and great for sensitive skin, so it’s perfect if you suffer from acne and you’re looking for a non-greasy product to protect your skin from the sun. One of the defining features of this sunscreen is it is suitable for face and body, so there is no need to rush out and buy one separate products for each!

4. Eucerin Sun Allergy Protect Sun Crème Gel SPF50

This is a unique sunscreen that not only offers broad-spectrum sun protection, but also Alpha-Glycosylrutin, which helps prevent sun induced allergies such as PLE. Unlike most sunscreens, it also comes in a unique cream-gel formula, which makes it non-greasy, non-sticky and allows it to absorb quickly without leaving an unsightly white cast. As if that wasn’t enough, it is also fragrance-free and water resistant, so you won’t have to worry about it disappearing the moment you jump into the ocean or the pool. This product is truly one of the best sunscreens money can buy!
