Going for a run—or walk—in the summer sun? Then, you’ll need sunburn protection that’s sweat-resistant, preferably in spray form to reduce the eye-sting factor. Look for a product that says it’s “water resistant” (there’s no such thing as “waterproof,” FYI) so it lasts through your workout. We like the “athlete-tested” Coppertone Sport Pro Series (in SPF 15, 30 and 50+), which lasts for 80 minutes in water and is specifically designed with a lightweight formula that’s free of pore-clogging and eye-stinging (testers approved!) ingredients. $10.99, available at food, drug and mass retailers
