Don’t like to layer sunscreen under your makeup? Afraid of breakouts? No problem! This new crop of products leaves you no excuse for skimping on sun protection. Shielding your complexion from damaging rays is a year-round job. “It’s not just the days at the beach that age us, but daily, short-term sun exposure over years,” says New York City dermatologist Paul Jarrod Frank, MD. These picks will help you make sunscreen an everyday habit. 

1. SUPER-MOISTURIZING SPRAY
Banana Boat Protect & Hydrate Sunscreen Clear UltraMist

We love the convenience of spray sunscreen, but not its sticky, drying residue. Banana Boat’s latest offering in SPF 15, 30 and 50+ wards off damaging rays and softens with aloe and vitamin E. $8.49, grocery and drug stores

2. BREAKOUT-PROOF PROTECTION
Coppertone CLEARLY Sheer Faces For Beach & Pool

This SPF 50+ sunscreen is totally sheer (no chalky, white film) and won’t clog pores or cause breakouts. It absorbs into skin ASAP, moisturizes and is water-resistant for 80 minutes. The best part? The traditional, tropical aroma. $8.99, grocery and drug stores

3. MAKEUP/SUNSCREEN COMBO
Sonia Kashuk Radiant+ Tinted Moisturizer

The celebrity makeup artist’s budget-friendly tinted moisturizer hydrates while providing sheer coverage plus SPF 15 to protect against incidental sun exposure. This lightweight multitasker comes in five shades, from fair to honey. $13.69, Target

4. TRAVEL COMPANION
Neutrogena Beach Defense Water + Sun Barrier Stick Sunscreen

Stick sunscreens may be TSA-compliant, but most are too tiny for head-to-toe coverage. Neutrogena’s new SPF 50+ Beach Defense Stick protects against UVA and UVB rays thanks to its Helioplex technology, and its deodorant-style applicator allows for full-body protection. $9.99, grocery and drug stores

5. ALL-NATURAL OPTION
Yes to Cucumbers Natural Sunscreen Stick SPF 30

This facial product protects your complexion while hydrating with shea butter. It’s free of petroleum, sodium-lauryl sulfate and parabens, and boasts the Skin Cancer Foundation’s seal of approval. $8.99, Target or Walgreens
