May is Skin Cancer Awareness Month, and if you are into skincare as much as we are, you make protecting your skin priority #1.

The good news is that skin cancer is one of the more preventable types of cancer, so take a look at our top sun-protecting product picks (and one to help soothe skin after a day in the sun) that will keep you healthy and protected.

Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Body Mist SPF 70

This spray-on sunscreen is easy to use and very kid friendly. We find it much easier to spray the kids down, rather than fuss with a lotion-style formula. They think it’s fun, too. The mist dries quickly, is waterproof, sweat-proof and even sprays upside down. $9.99, drugstore.com

Murad Waterproof Sunblock SPF 30

This is one of our favorite sunscreens. Not only does it deliver maximum protection for our skin, but it smells fabulous (no “sunscreen” smell), fights off free-radicals, never leaves our skin super shiny (like other sunscreens sometimes do), and doesn’t clog our pores. Thank you Dr. Murad… $30, sephora.com

Blistex Lip Tone SPF 15

Your lips are probably one area of your face you forget to protect, and wearing gloss or lipstick alone won’t give them protection unless it itself contains an SPF. Run this over your lips before applying you favorite lip color and you’ll not only create an even base for it to stick to, but you’ll also give no reason for the sun to cause any damage to your precious pout. $1.99, drugstore.com
