Remember those days of frying in the sun and wearing your irritated burn as a badge of pride? We'd like to forget those too and are proud to say we've embraced wearing sunscreen everyday. From SPF-infused moisturizers to simple sunscreens with added anti-aging benefits, it is by far the most effective way to keep our skin looking young, healthy and happy.
The only problem is the unwanted shine and oil that seems inevitable and makes makeup melt almost immediately. Not to mention, the almost unpreventable post-lotion breakout. Well, we're here to let you in on a little secret... there are shine-free, anti-aging sunscreens that won't make your foundation fall off in a puddle.
It's time to throw out those blotting papers and find the kind of sunscreen that will do more with less (oil, that is). We've done the hard work for you, putting together ten of the best protective lotions that will keep your face blemish-free. Whether you're looking for stronger protection against UVA/UVB rays or a moisturizer that will keep your foundation intact, we've narrowed it down to the best of the best that will benefit your skin and boost your confidence in the sun.
