At In The Groove, we don’t mess around with our sunscreens. We wear it every day, and reapply religiously. With summer coming in hot, literally and metaphorically, there’s nothing more important than keeping our skin safe from penetrating rays. Of course, while your face is the money shot, don’t forget to cover your neck and hands as well. What can we say about sunscreen that you don’t already know? It’s the most important step of any skincare routine. It’s the best line of defense against aging and skin cancer. You should reapply in the middle of the day, and never wear less than SPF 30. These are the basics of sunscreen, and we know them well. On to the ones we love the most.
Supergoop! is one of the brands we reach for over and over, but it’s hard not to when they have so many great products. And for any women of color out there, this is your brand. No matter which product you use, the sunscreen will dry clear. That’s right, no ashiness or strange purple tints. The Unseen Sunscreen is a perfect everyday option, and the setting powder is ideal for refreshing your SPF in the middle of the day. Another personal favorite that won’t break the bank? The Neutrogena Ultra Sheer series dries clear while providing massive coverage, all the way up to SPF 100. It even works well underneath makeup.
All of our recommendations are curated by Susan & the In The Groove editorial team. In some, but not all cases, we receive a small commission for leading you to what, how and where to buy all this wonderful stuff.
