If you do nothing else for your skin, we ask you to (please) use sunscreen. In addition to protecting against skin cancer, it’s the single most effective thing you can do to prevent premature aging. Don't know which one to try? Elta MD UV Clear Broad-Spectrum SPF 46 is a great place to start. 

Apart from amassing more than 2,700 glowing reviews on Amazon and boasting a celebrity fan base that reads like the cast of the Avengers movies, it's also the number one ranking brand among dermatologists and here's why: It works on every skin tone and type.

Formulated with zinc oxide, it protects against both UVA and UVB rays without causing any irritation or clogging your pores. It also contains niacinamide, hyaluronic acid and lactic acid to calm and hydrate skin. And here's the part that you're probably wondering about: It blends nicely without leaving any streaks and doesn't feel greasy on your face (which is particularly important as we head into the summer). 

As one enthusiastic reviewer explains, "I have extremely sensitive skin that stings if I use chemical sunscreens. I'm also prone to acne, rosacea, and hyper-pigmentation so to find a sunscreen that's specifically designed to not aggravate those issues is amazing. It has no white cast, no scent, and works beautifully under makeup. Truly the best sunscreen I've ever used." Happy sunscreening!
