Skin Cancer Awareness Month: Exploring Your Sunscreen Options

Find the Best Sunscreen for Summer

Summer is a wonderful time to be outside, but it also comes with the possibility of sun damaged skin. This makes it even more important to know your sunscreen options. Here are a few for you to consider.


Matte Mineral Sunscreen

Supergoop is renowned for their skincare and beauty products. They’ve had sunscreen on their product list for a while now, and their Smooth and Poreless Matte Mineral Sunscreen, in particular, is a game-changer. This sunscreen leaves no chalky residue or white sheen on the skin after application. This makes it perfect for application on the face under makeup or on bare skin. With SPF 40, it also provides excellent protection against UVA and UVB radiation.

Beach Defense Sunscreen

Neutrogena is a powerhouse when it comes to skincare products. They have multiple lines of sunscreen, but this particular formula is great because it comes in the form of a spray. This makes the sunscreen lighter than ever. In addition, it’s water resistant for up to 80 minutes and it smells amazing. With SPF 70, it also provides high levels of protection for your skin. The line is also available in the form of a lotion or a stick, but the spray is most convenient if you’re on the go.

Invisible Facial Sunscreen Gel

This sunscreen gel from skincare and beauty brand Julep is perfect for use on the face. Not only is the gel lightweight and easy to apply, but the fact that it is a gel means there’s no residue left behind on the skin upon application. In addition, Beauty Lab tests revealed that this sunscreen doesn’t run into the eyes or leave skin prone to acne flare-ups. So if you’re looking for a great sunscreen to use on your face on the daily, this is an excellent option to consider.

Activated Sun Protector Sunscreen

If you’re looking for a sunscreen from a skincare brand with an excellent reputation, this product from Kiehl’s might just be perfect for you. This sunscreen is designed for use on the face and the body. One of the best things about it is that it can be applied without making skin feel greasy, oily, or slick. The formula is lightweight and moisturizing, and contains SPF 50. If you’ve used Kiehl’s in the past, there’s a good chance that you’ll love this product.

Perfectionist Pro UV Fluid

Estee Lauder is known for their luxury skincare products, and sunscreen is no exception. Their Perfectionist Pro Multi-Defense UV Fluid boasts SPF 45 and the inclusion of 8 antioxidants in its formula, making it an excellent option if you want to avoid early signs of skin cancer from sun damage. The formula is designed not only to protect the skin on your face from UVA and UVB rays, but the inclusion of essential antioxidants helps protect facial skin from environmental irritants like pollution and blue light.

Protecting your skin from the sun is crucial if you want to avoid the possibility of skin cancer. If you have questions about your sun protection routine or want to schedule a skin cancer screening, contact our team at North Pacific Dermatology to set up an appointment today.
