Shop top-rated sunscreens from dermatologists and skin scientists.
The wall of sunscreens at the drugstore can be more than a little overwhelming: Which ones are worth it—and will any of them benefit you more than others? We have the answers! For the 2019 Prevention Sun Safe Awards, we turned to dermatologists and skincare scientists to help us sort through the best sunscreen options for every kind of need, whether your skin is dry or prone to breakouts, whether you love lotions or sprays, and more.
Protect yourself properly: Sunscreen is crucial, first and foremost, as a protection against skin cancer. For the best protection, apply liberally on all exposed areas before going outdoors. Imagine how much would fill a shot glass, and use that to cover yourself. If you're using a spray, spread it out evenly by hand as well as spraying.
Get your anti-aging benefits: Women who applied only a broad spectrum SPF 30 sunscreen to their faces each morning for one year—and no anti-agers—showed improvement of 40 percent to 52 percent in skin texture, pigmentation, and clarity and 25 percent in crow's feet, a Johnson & Johnson study found.
Replace regularly: Sunscreen does expire (check the date printed on your bottle) and remember: If you still have sunscreen left at the end of the summer, you're probably not using enough! Use one of these 20 winners to restock your supply:
Anonymous: I remember this. She wasn't completely alone though...there were a few other experts that warned of trouble on the horizon. I'm no expert, but I had a co-worker back in '05 or '06 who had terrible credit but came in one day saying he got a home loan with only 5% down. I thought he was lying, but he went on to explain that his loan and other low-credit score loans would be grouped with other, less risky loans and sold off as a package. I told him that was the craziest thing I had ever heard of and that somebody along the line was going to get stuck. We were a commercial construction company that closed its doors in Feb of 09. I heard later that my co-worker had lost his house to foreclosure.
