Sunscreen keeps fine lines from creeping in—and prevents any existing ones from further establishing themselves as wrinkles. It also wards off freckles and age spots while moisturizing skin and—of course—the most immediate nuisance, the dreaded sunburn. But the most imperative aspect of sunblock is its ability to prevent skin cancer. After all, 90% of non-melanoma skin cancers are caused by UV rays from the sun, and skin cancer is one of the most common cancers in the world with more new cases of skin cancer than lung, breast, prostate, and colon cancers combined, per The Skin Cancer Foundation.
Whether you are into budget deals, or high-priced boutique brands; SPF 15 or SPF 50; chalky lotions or weightless sprays, there’s an option for you here.
Skinbrella SPF 30
Skinbrella from Kintari checks all the boxes: It has broad-spectrum protection from UV rays, sun protection factor of 30 or greater, and is water resistant for 40 or 80 minutes. But this brand sets itself apart from the rest—really, it has a US patent—because it has an ingredient that can block out UV rays (namely the UV absorber avobenzone which causes sunburn) for over eight hours. Plus, you can count on it going on smoothly without any residue or getting into your eyes when you sweat—pretty important for endurance athletes who spend hours on the hot pavement. We even have proof from 2015 Race Across America finisher and elite cyclist Caleb Porter:
“Skinbrella fills a void for endurance athletes. For long training days, it is hard to find a sunscreen that is not oily or greasy but still provides long-lasting protection. Skinbrella meets this need go me. On my long, sunny training days, I always apply Skinbrella before I ride. And when I run afterward I find that I am still protected from the sun. I highly recommend the product.”
