STYLE: Our Sunscreen Picks


North Phoenix Moms Blog STYLE

I’ve talked about this before, but I thought this would be a good time for another friendly reminder…wear sunscreen! It is so important to protect your skin, the biggest and most visible organ, from sun damage.  It is no surprise that the sun is always out here in Phoenix, so even if you are driving around running errands, your skin is being exposed to the sun…not to mention the time we spend outdoors swimming, playing, and camping this time of year.

I wear sunscreen everyday, especially on my face.  I make sure to put it on my kids when we are doing any outdoor activity, but the hardest person to get sunscreen on is my husband…the biggest whiner of them all!  He hates the feeling of sunscreen and the way your skin gets sticky while wearing it.  I asked some of my fellow contributors for their favorites, so I could give you some of our picks that are kid/hubby approved.  I do not recommend the spray sunscreen for direct application near the face for kids; inhaling the sunscreen is not safe.


My favorite sunscreen for my face, along with many others here on the blog, is Healthy Skin by Breanna’s Skin Smoothing Mineral Protection SPF 40.  This feels amazing and leaves your skin so smooth.  I love wearing it under my makeup as a primer.  It is tinted, so not your best bet for kids or the hubby though!


Breanna at Healthy Skin also sells Solar Body Block SPF 30+ which is all natural and absorbs quickly without any greasy feeling.  Hubby and kid approved!


Alba Botanica has different options that are natural and very water resistant.  They have ones specifically formulated for kids.


Neutrogena has a variety of sunscreens as well.  Their Clear Face Liquid Lotion Sunscreen is recommended if you break out easily, in general or from other sunscreens.

Coola, Supergoop, and The Honest Company are also brands that have nice sunscreens for your face and body.  They are fast-absorbing and are great for wearing alone or under makeup.

I hope you are enjoying your summer and keeping your skin safe!  What is your sunscreen of choice?
