If you’ve been to the beach regularly, you probably know that sun isn’t hard to come by on the shores. Even if you’re not trying to get a tan you’ll most likely end up with a freckled nose by the time you leave. The reason for this is because water, and especially salt water, attracts the sun. Also depending on where you’re beaching, the sand might attract rays as well.

It’s important to protect your skin from unhealthy UV radiation at all times, but especially when you’re on the sand. If you’re a regular to this blog, you probably know that we are huge on sun protection and that we consider sunscreen to be the most important thing you can use on your skin daily.

We can’t say it enough, keep your skin covered! Not only is sun damage extremely bad for your skins overall health, but it also increases the chances of fine lines and wrinkles. Ask anyone with great skin over 50, they’re secret is staying out of the sun!

Sunscreen also has the benefit of protecting your skin from other environmental stressors such as pollution and free radicals that we are all exposed to everyday. This is because sunscreen is packed with antioxidants, and in result protect from more than just sun.

You might be wondering:

What kind of sunscreen is best to wear at the beach?

Here are some of our favorite sunscreens to wear at the beach.

For Oily Skin Tones:

Get your essential daily sun protection to prevent premature aging caused by UVA/UVB exposure. 22% Non-nano naturally derived Zinc Oxide offers broad spectrum protection while passion fruit extract, known for its antioxidant properties, supports the skin's natural defense against free radicals. Rice starch leaves the skin mattified making sure your sunscreen stays put on oily skin.

For Tinted Moisturizer:

In our opinion, tinted sun protection is one of the greatest inventions of all time. Not only is it the perfect primer or base, it also kills two birds with one stone. We all know that layering too many products can produce a strange texture and flakiness that nobody needs in their life.

For lip sun protection:

If you've ever had sunburnt lips you know that it is nothing short of a nightmare. If you haven't, trust us, it's not a great experience. Enter: the lip sunscreen that doesn't get sticky and conditions your lips all while smelling and tasting amazing. This stuff is great to have with you not just not on the beach, but really at all times.
