Earlier this year, news of Serena Williams’ upcoming plans to launch a beauty line promptly broke the internet. Although specific details are hush-hush, she trademarked the name Aneres—Serena spelled backwards—across 18 separate categories spanning from lipsticks and eye shadow to dry shampoo and body lotion.

When you play an outdoor sport, sun protection is crucial. Luckily, Williams learned this at a young age. “I never leave home without it.
