The 16 Best Face Sunscreens for Weightless, Everyday Protection

Forever a staple in beach bags and bathroom cabinets alike, sunscreen should be easy enough to understand by now. Dispense, slather, bask—how difficult is that? But sunscreen isn’t as straightforward as the poolside days of the past might have you think. There are now more options than ever, and while they offer a variety of sun-protective ingredients and supplementary perks—such as antioxidants, elegant finishes, and delightfully weightless formulations—it can be harder to choose what might work best for you.

That’s not to mention the myths that have emerged in the collective consciousness. For one, sunscreen won’t prevent your body from synthesizing vitamin D, which most readily occurs through the intake of sunlight and is key for bone health. Skipping sunscreen to reap vitamin D rewards is flawed thinking, says dermatologist Rachel Nazarian, M.D., who practices at Schweiger Dermatology in New York City. “Sunscreen is not steel,” she explains. “It still allows some sunlight to penetrate, and ultimately doesn’t fully block your body from ultraviolet radiation.”
