So, to prevent unwanted skin damage whether you're working inside or enjoying the outdoors, it's probably a good time to update your sunscreen stash. That said, in case you're having a hard time finding your best sunscreen match, we tapped two board-certified dermatologists to break down the best sunscreen releases for summer 2020.
As the name suggests, board-certified dermatologist Dr. Rina Allawh, MD, FAAD says this invisible sunscreen is a must-have for those who prefer an easy-breezy formula. "This sunscreen is lightweight, fragrance-free, and has the added bonus of being easy to conceal," she tells TotalBeauty. "It also has an invisible appearance on the skin, whether you wear it with, or without makeup."
Sensitive skin users will want to keep tabs on this tinted sunscreen: Board-certified dermatologist Dr. Marie Hayag, MD explains that it blends smoothly on all skin types, and contains skin-boosting ingredients like hyaluronic acid.
Hyaluronic acid, according to a 2012 study published in Dermato Endocrinology is a commonly used skin care ingredient that boosts your skin's moisture retention. This, in turn, helps to prevent the formation of fine lines and wrinkles.
"This mineral broad-spectrum sunscreen contains zinc oxide and titanium dioxide, is water-resistant, and reef safe," Dr. Hayag says. "And since it glides and melts into the skin upon application, it is also excellent for people with facial hair, and other hair-bearing areas such as the back and chest."
