Saving Face: 8 Of The Absolute Best Sunscreens For Your Mug

We may be quick to drop major cash on anti-aging serums, moisturizers and lotions, but, let’s face it: There’s no magic elixir can save our skin by warding off early signs of aging quite like sunscreen.
And, even though dermatologists have been preaching about SPF for decades, slathering a greasy, super-potent formula on our faces hardly seems like the best way to spend a relaxing, beachside vacay. But, because it’s necessary in order to keep wrinkles, age spots, and skin cancer in check, we rounded up eight protective sunscreens specially designed for your visage.
That not only means no more harsh, intolerable fragrances or that unmistakable oily film to keep you from digging your toes into the sand (or, you know, walking 20 blocks to work in the morning). Plus, they also feel more like traditional face lotions than sunscreens. Click through for our picks — and just make sure you wake up from your daiquiri-induced coma every two hours to reapply.
