As the weather begins to get warmer, it’s important that you remember to wear sunscreen. You’d not only reduce the likelihood of harsh sunburns but also keep your skin healthy, hinder aging, and prevent skin cancer. Here are five sunscreen products to help keep your skin protected:

Beauty of Joseon Relief Sun: Rice + Probiotics (SPF50+ PA++++) ($18)

This lightweight facial cream is perfect for those who’d like to start wearing sunscreen but don’t like the greasy feeling it leaves behind. The rich formula allows you to apply multiple layers without ever feeling sticky. It also leaves your skin hydrated with a consistency similar to light moisturizers. You can even skip your usual face cream in the mornings if your skin feels hydrated enough with this sunscreen!

Supergoop! Unseen Sunscreen SPF 40 ($38)

Supergoop’s sunscreen is perfect for all skin types! The product is carefully crafted to leave a natural finish on your skin with its gel formula, which enhances your complexion while remaining lightweight throughout the day.
