Protect Skin With Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Dry-Touch Sunblock Spf 55

3 Apr

SKIPPING BROAD-SPECTRUM SUNSCREEN

The best way to keep your skin from getting wrinkled, saggy, and speckled is sunscreen, SPF 30 at the minimum. Broad-spectrum formulas (meaning they shield against both UVA and UVB rays) with Mexoryl or Helioplex offer the longest-lasting protection. (We like Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Dry-Touch Sunblock SPF 55 and La Roche-Posay Anthelios 40.)

Apply a whole tablespoon to your face, and the equivalent of a shot glass on your body. For workdays, reapply before your commute home if the sun is still out—even if you’ll be in a car. And for days when you’ll be outside for an extended period of time, reapply every two hours. We know it’s a pain, but come on—you’ll get the last laugh instead of the first laugh lines.

WHAT IT IS:

An oil-free sunblock that’s water- and sweat-resistant

WHAT IT DOES:

Provides broad-spectrum sun protection and an invisible matte finish

KEY INGREDIENTS:

The company’s patented Helioplex sunscreen technology including avobenzone, homosalate, octisalate, octocrylene, and oxybenzone (sunscreens)

HOW IT FEELS/SMELLS/LOOKS:

The nongreasy cream has a slight beachy scent.

WHY WE LIKE IT:

The high SPF and stable filters make it a favorite among top dermatologists (who still recommend reapplying it every two hours, by the way). It absorbs very quickly, leaving skin looking clean—not pasty or shiny—and it’s noncomedogenic, so it won’t clog pores.

AWARDS:

Best of Beauty 2008 and 2006

You can purchase these from: Target, Walgreens, Amazon, Kmart, Walmart, Ulta, Cvs, just to name a few.
