Inside the Articles: Sunscreens
What should you get for all the beloved but picky, fancy or quirky people in your life? Let our experts help you find the perfect gift for anyone on your shopping list.
By far the best brand we've found for organic sun-care is Coola. Not only do they have a wide range of organic products that work wonders, they also smell amazing. With scents such as fresh mango and fresh coconut, you won’t have to deal with the typical “sunscreen smell” that can be off-putting to apply to your face and body every day. Instead, enjoy the smells of a tropical summer day and know you’re protecting your skin in the process!
Designed to work around your makeup routine, Supergoop has suncare products that give you the best of both worlds. Ranging from clear sunscreens with the consistency of a primer to a makeup setting spray that provides a touch up during the day for those of us who find it hard to remember to reapply, they are definitely the makeup lover’s best bet for blocking UV rays.
3. Salt & Stone
Salt & Stone is a company that produces all natural mineral sunscreens that are perfect for those with sensitive skin. In choosing a sunscreen, typically the 30-50 spf range is best as sunscreens with over 50 spf tend to be much more irritating to the skin. However, Salt & Stone’s formula includes anti-inflammatory ingredients that will help to keep the skin calm and protected.
4. Hello Bello
Hello Bello’s mild organic formula can be used on both kids and adults, making it a great choice for families looking to stay shielded from the sun’s rays. On top of this, compared to other organic sunscreens, it is relatively affordable at a little under $10 per bottle. Sold at Walmart and other chain retailers, it is not hard to find this great alternative to the classic sunscreen.
5. Clarins UV Plus Anti-Pollution Sunscreen
For those looking for a more premium option, Clarins luxury skincare brand also includes a lightweight formula with organic cantaloupe melon extract. This option is great for those looking for anti-pollution protection as well as UV protection, which would be helpful in an urban city or similar environment where the skin is exposed to heavier amounts of pollution on a daily basis.
