Your Sport: Running
Solution: When it’s 80 degrees and humid, the last thing you want is a sunscreen that drips into your eyes and stings for the next six miles. SkinCeuticals Sport UV Defense ($40, dermstore.com) has an SPF 50 and was tested by multiple endurance athletes, including marathoners, to create a formula that won’t streak or run, and is resistant to being rubbed off every time you clear your sinuses. Don’t just rely on sunscreen, though: Try running in early morning or late afternoon hours, wear a face-shielding baseball cap and look for technical shirts made with built-in SPF protection. Damage already done? Time for an after-burn treatment balm, such as the soothing lavender, cucumber, and aloe formula in Dermalogica’s After Sun Repair lotion ($33, dermalogica.com). Apply immediately after you exercise (wash your face first), and again right before bed to help your skin recover while you sleep.
