Sunscreens You Should Be Using For Your Skin Issues

Your sunscreen options are no longer limited to lotions and sprays.


Kayleigh Donahue Hodes |

We all have skin issues. Oily skin, sensitive skin — it’s horrible, but that doesn’t mean you have to skimp out on the number one product you should be using every day: sunscreens. The sun’s dark side, quantified: It is behind 80 percent of wrinkles and spots and is the primary cause of skin cancer. How can you enjoy a minute outdoors knowing that? Your sunscreen options are no longer limited to lotions and sprays.

Check them out.

Gel Sunscreen

Best for:  Outdoor athletes and people with oily and/or dark skin (it goes on clear)

Mousse Sunscreen

Best for: Anyone who finds it tedious to rub on a cream
Skip If: You suck at putting on sufficient sunscreen—it’s tough for SPF slackers to gauge if they’ve used enough.
