The Best SPF Lotions for Your Skin Type

When it comes to SPF, you may have noticed not all lotions are created equal. Especially when some leave an icky, greasy feeling on your skin after you apply it. Even the best waterproof lotions shouldn’t leave you feeling slimy,  but sometimes your experience with SPF improves when you pay attention to the ingredients and how they match with your skin type!

Here are our picks for the best SPF products for your skin type:

Dry Skin

If the water is your second home, Garnier Ambre Solaire Ultra-Hydrating Sun Cream SPF 30 delivers intense moisture to help prevent your skin from drying out in the sun! The sun cream contains vitamin C and Mexoryl SX that enhance the skin’s natural defenses while also protecting your skin against harmful UVA and UVB rays and premature signs of aging.

You don’t just want a lotion that will give you adequate protection from UVA/UVB rays, you also want something that will cater to your skin’s struggle with moisture. Ultrasun SPF 50+ Extreme Sun Lotion contains provitamin B5 and Vitamin E to help lock in moisture without making skin feel greasy, while Vitamin E also helps protect the skin from free radicals and environmental aggressors.

Oily/Shiny Skin

This oil-free sun cream duo from NUXE protects your precious skin from the harmful effects of UVA and UVB rays while also helping to prolong your after-sun bronze glow! NUXE Sun Pouch SPF 50+ Free After Sun contains a unique formula of sun and water flowers that help you achieve a natural, even tan with a smooth finish.

The duo’s After Sun cream, enriched with sweet orange, Tahitian gardenia and vanilla, is refreshing upon application and helps to nourish the skin while also prolonging your hard-earned beach tan!

Sensitive Skin

With an ultra-lightweight formula and non-greasy texture, Garnier Ambre Solaire Sensitive Dry Mist Sun Cream Spray SPF 50 provides ultimate protection from damaging sun rays while absorbing fast into the skin without leaving any white marks.

Perfect for sunburn-prone skin and enhanced with Mexoryl XL to prevent immediate sun-induced damage as well as long-term effects of premature aging. Sunscreen is efficient and effective, leaving skin feeling soft and supple.

With these sunscreen picks you can spend a day at the beach or poolside, confident that you’re fully protected, plus you look great at the same time! Check out more great sunscreen picks on our lookfantastic website here!
