The Best Sunscreens for Your Skin
Hate every sunscreen you've ever tried? You're not alone. But trust us when we say there is one on this list you'll love
I love fielding these questions because I'm admittedly a proud member of the SPF police. When my husband plays golf, I send him a "time to reapply!" text message every two hours. And on more than one occasion, I've launched a friendly attack of continuous-spray SPF 30 on a friend who's fallen asleep at the beach.
And here's the thing: When I get these "Which sunscreen should I use?" questions from family and friends, everyone also says something along the lines of, "I hate sunscreen." And they share all kinds of complaints, like "it's greasy," "there are too many chemicals," "it smells awful," or "it makes my skin look white." I wish I knew of one sunscreen that would be perfect for everyone, but unfortunately I don't think it exists. However, I do strongly believe there is a sunscreen out there for each of us.

So instead of just rounding up the best new SPF's on the market and saying, "pick one of these," I set out to find solutions to specific sunscreen issues. I enrolled the help of two top dermatologists (chiefs in the SPF police force, if you will), and sent them the toughest questions that have come my way. Keep reading to find the best sunscreens based on your specific SPF gripes. And if you're still wondering which sunscreen you should use, leave us a comment. I'll personally chime in and suggest what I think is your best match.
