Wearing sunscreen might be non-negotiable, but that doesn't mean we have to suffer through our daily application of the stuff. If you loathe putting on sunscreen, the problem might simply be that you haven't yet found the right formula. There are so many sunscreen deliveries to choose from including sprays, mineral powders, gels and tinted lotions, yet many of us still seem to default to traditional thick lotions. Formulas have come a long way, and there's one product aiming to convert the haters: sunscreen sticks.
Sunscreen sticks offer as much protection as any other formula, yet they're quick and easy to apply and reapply. The solid formulation allows sunscreen sticks to be stashed in purses, beach bags and carry-ons without fear of leakage. Not to mention, they're a TSA-friendly dream.
