Grooming: It’s Time to Stock up Sunscreens

AIN’T NO SUNSHINE. With summer just right around the corner, it’s time to stock up on trusted sunscreens. Pick a moisturizer with high SPF content if you intend to stay in town throughout the warmer days.


But for active travelers who are looking forward to long weekends in Bali or summer holidays elsewhere, make sure you’re well equipped with sweat-proof and, if possible, waterproof sunblock. Guys with sensitive skin shouldn’t fret, as plenty of products in the market will help protect your skin from unwanted UV rays sans unwanted side effects. Take the sting out of fun under the sun for the months ahead.



1. There are sunscreens and there are sunscreens for dry skin. Clinique for Men SPF 21 Moisturizer is a dual-purpose moisturizer that both hydrates and covers the skin from UV rays. It’s a tad oily but perfect for application after facial scrubbing or shaving. You can even use this moisturizer in the evening or whenever the skin is in need of extra layering.


2. Sometimes the last thing you want from sunscreen is visible traces of white shiny smears on your skin. L.A.-based brand Neutrogena tackles this issue with the Ultra Sheer Dry-Touch Sunblock. Not only is it waterproof and sweat-proof, this sunscreen is even rub-proof, thanks to its fastabsorbing ingredients. Use this SPF 30 formula for a stroll under the sun, but higher SPF will be necessary for snorkeling or diving.


3. Sunburnt skin may sometimes unfavorably induce an aged look, with your skin losing its fresh and naturally youthful appearance. That is why Clarins Men UV Protection SPF 20 Oil Free works so well for the twenty-something and above crowd, since it prevents sunburn and premature skin aging. On top of that, the dual-purpose lotion has a non-greasy texture.
