Over the past few years, it seems Americans have developed a love/ hate relationship with the sun. While we love basking in its golden glow, and letting sunlight soak into our bones, we abhor what those glorious rays do to our skin. Unprotected sun exposure can result in wrinkles, age spots and even skin cancer, all things we’d rather not experience.
It might seem the only sensible solution is to stay indoors, but luckily there are other options. Thanks to a wide variety of skin cremes and lotions which contain sunscreen, we can have fun in the sun and still be safe from its damaging rays.
The SPF factor isn’t the only reason we choose a sunscreen. A sun block must have pleasant fragrance, a nice light texture and work well under make up for anyone to actually rub it into their skin. Here’s five that get high marks from public opinion polls.
