If you like to swim, try Neutrogena Wet Skin Sunblock Spray SPF 50 ($11; drugstores). Its long-lasting, broad-spectrum UV blockers adhere to wet skin.
Avon Anew Solar Advance Sunscreen Body Lotion SPF 30 ($34; avon.com) does double duty: The creamy lotion leaves skin soft and smooth, while sunscreens and a potent antioxidant prevent sun damage.
A blend of five plant extracts in Clarins Wrinkle Control Cream SPF 50+ ($30; us.clarins.com) fights signs of aging and sun damage, including fine lines, wrinkles, and dark spots.
The clear formula of Kiss My Face Sun Spray Oil SPF 30 ($13; kissmyface.com) soaks in quickly, with no stickiness or shine.
PCA Skin Active Very Water/Sweat Resistant SPF 45 ($28; pcaskin.com for locations) shields skin from UV rays even after an hour of swimming or working out. A blend of antioxidants (including caffeine) helps prevent wrinkles and improve skin tone.
Peppermint-flavored Lavanila The Healthy Lip Screen SPF 30 ($16; lavanila.com) is packed with hydrating shea butter.
For ears, nose, and the delicate area around your eyes, try a stick sunscreen like Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Cream Targeted Sun Defense Stick SPF 50 PA +++ ($20; elizabetharden.com).
Skinceuticals Physical Fusion UV Defense SPF 50 ($30; skinceuticals.com) uses physical UV blockers (titanium dioxide and zinc oxide) but doesn't feel chalky or heavy. A sheer tint brightens and evens out skin tone.
