Top 5 most effective sunscreens

Finding the right sunscreen can be incredibly overwhelming. There are so many options to choose from, and with something so important as your skin, you want to make sure you’re making the best purchase. Sadly, many commercial sunscreens lack the adequate criteria for optimum protection. So, according to the EWG (Environmental Working Group), when shopping for sunscreen, keep in mind that the best sunscreens block both UVA and UVB rays with safe, active ingredients that do not break down in the sun. And:

1. Look for zinc oxide or titanium dioxide.
2. Avoid oxybenzone and sunscreens with fragrance
3. Avoid sunscreen sprays (we know…bummer!)

Here are five effective sunscreens to invest in this season, broken down by category:
