What are the Best Sunscreens?

Last week Hugh Jackman revealed his 5th bout of skin cancer. Despite all his fame and fortune, without his health this action hero is powerless. This got us thinking about the best sunscreens on the market and the importance of using a daily defense against the sun’s harmful UV rays. We’ve collected a range of face and body SPFs that not only combat sun exposure and protect you from harmful UV rays, but are formulated with innovative ingredients, so your skin actually becomes healthier with regular use.

The aerated silica technology is able to absorb up to 15x its weight in oil, and the optimized smoothing base and translucent color spheres refine and perfect the appearance of skin tone and texture.
