With a seemingly never-ending lineup of brands and ingredient lists, picking the best sunscreen is way more stressful than it should be. And after the FDA’s recent sunscreen proposal (which favors mineral sunscreens over chemical ones), you might be even more confused. The short story: Look for options that contain zinc oxide or titanium dioxide (minerals that physically block UV rays). Not sure where to start? Here are six we always keep on hand.

CeraVe Hydrating Face Mineral Sunscreen Lotion SPF 50

Let us count the reasons why we love CeraVe’s sunscreen: It’s a mineral formula, it gives great coverage and it provides the moisture we didn’t realize we needed, with three essential ceramides that work to restore your skin’s natural barrier.

Josh Rosebrook Nutrient Day Cream Tinted SPF 30

OK, this one’s a relative splurge. But it’s also vegan and certified organic, full of all the good stuff (aloe vera, shea butter) and subtly tinted to even out skin. It’s basically a sunscreen, moisturizer and foundation in one…so kind of a steal when you think about it, really?

COLORESCIENCE SUNFORGETTABLE LOOSE MINERAL SUNSCREEN SPF 50

Back-to-back meetings, outdoor happy hours and long beach days have nothing on this stuff. This convenient powder makes it easy to keep your SPF intact, thanks to its retractable brush that dispenses sheer mineral sunscreen onto your skin in a few passes. Plus, it’s exceptionally lightweight, giving your skin room to breathe.

ELTAMD UV CLEAR BROAD-SPECTRUM SPF 46

Calling all skin-care obsessives: Think of this formula as a two-for-one. It contains zinc oxide and it’s suitable for sensitive and eczema-prone skin. It is also lightweight and blends sheer, so it’s completely transparent on the skin (even on deep skin tones).
