Sunscreen to Keep You Active—and Safe—Under The Sun

Ready to go out again? While we’re now quite used to the idea of taking extra protections outside our homes, let’s not forget essentials like sunscreen.

Having an active lifestyle means your skin needs to be extra protected, without exception. That, of course, includes protection from potentially-harmful UVA and UVB radiation. Here we pick some of the best sunscreens to protect you from the sun that also offer extra benefits like hydration and anti-aging.

Hydrating with a fast-absorbing formula, Supergoop PLAY Everyday Lotion SPF 50 with Sunflower Extract provides high performance protection from UVA, UVB and IRA rays, while also helping prevent photo-aging and dehydration. Outdoor activities become more fun thanks to the water-and sweat resistant coverage that lasts for 80 minutes. Available at Sephora.

Made for most skin types, the Aesop Protective Facial Lotion SPF 25 is a lightweight, rapidly-absorbed SPF25 hydrator that provides broad spectrum protection against the damaging effects of UVA and UVB radiation. It contains green tea extract for extra hydration and provides a matte finish.

The vegan, gluten-free and paraben-free, Dermalogica Protection 50—which also comes without any added artificial fragrances and colors—defends against prolonged skin damage from UV light and environmental stressors. Its oleosome microsphere help enhance the SPF50 performance while the lightweight formula helps neutralize damage and also bind the skin’s moisture content without a greasy finish.

Empowered by heat, water and perspiration, Shiseido’s exclusive SynchroShield Technology in the Perfect UV Protector H provides superior sun protection. Enriched with the brand’s famed skincare ingredients, it helps prevent the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and unevenness. Available at Glow Living Beauty.

South Korean brand Thank You Farmer believes in creating products that focus on pure and honest ingredients, following the mentality of a farmer. The Project Light Sun Essence offers not just  protection against UVA and UVB but also a lightweight, hydrating, fast-absorbing texture that feels refreshing with a subtle apricot scent. The formula offers a semi-matte finish that also protects against photo-aging, moisturizes, soothes, minimizes the appearance of pores and helps repair the skin barrier.
