Believe it or not, July 4th weekend is here! Summer is in full swing, which means long days under the sun are in store for you and your family. While that sounds like all fun and games, you must make sure to properly protect yourself and your family from the sun’s powerful UV rays. Neglecting to apply sunscreen (or not reapplying sunscreen throughout the day!) can put you at risk of painful sunburns, skin cancer, and premature signs of aging, such as dark spots and wrinkles.

In a fortunate twist of fate, Amazon secretly has a ton of sunscreen on sale right now—and just when we need it most! One of the biggest sunscreen discounts that we're seeing across all of Amazon happens to be on the Neutrogena Healthy Defense Daily Moisturizer, and it was named the best moisturizer with SPF by Ramsey Markus, M.D., a board-certified dermatologist based at Westside Dermatology in Seattle. The two-pack is 35% off right now, bringing the price per tube to about $9 (the regular price for one tube is $17).

More dermatologist-recommended sunscreens on sale are the CeraVe Oil-Free Facial Moisturizing Lotion, our favorite sunscreen for sensitive skin, or the Coppertone Pure and Simple Baby Mineral Sunscreen, our favorite sunscreen for kids. If you're looking to try something new, our editors are also huge fans of COOLA's Hydrating Makeup Setting Spray with SPF 30. It is made with cucumber and aloe vera for a relaxing, rejuvenating sensation that works equally well on bare skin or to keep makeup in place, all while offering broad spectrum UV protection with just a simple spritz—no rubbing in pesky lotion here. Ahead, shop these and more dermatologist-recommended sunscreens on Amazon.

But those aren’t the only sunscreen deals on Amazon—from standard body sunscreen to sweat- and water-resistant sport formulas to convenient spray sunscreen, there are so many options to choose from right now. These have not been tested by our in-house experts or recommended by dermatologists, but they are all a great value. There are options for every member of the family, whether you're spraying down the kids before they run out the door or prepping for a beach vacation. Now you can look forward to burn-free days under the summer sun, and save some money while you're at it.
