Best Spray Sunscreens: Our Top 5
This year, try protecting your skin with spray sunscreen.
Sunscreen is a spring, summer, fall and winter staple. Want to prevent early aging? Sunscreen. Want to keep your skin protected from UV rays? Sunscreen.
Now that we’ve established this crucial product, it’s time to admit that we don’t like slathering the lotion on either. It’s thick, goopy, and it can be difficult to apply to some areas. Swap out your old sunscreens for something easier this year.
Spray sunscreens can reach those hard-to-get areas and provide even coverage. Choose your sunscreen with care though; some spray sunscreens contain alcohol which helps the product dry faster on your skin. Here are our top five picks.
Hawaiian Tropic Silk Hydration Clear Mist Spray Sunscreen (SPF 30)
This sunscreen feels luxurious and infuses the skin with moisture to keep it hydrated while you’re out in the sun. The lightweight formula is a great change from thicker cream-sunscreens. One quick application and you’re covered from UV rays for up to 12 hours.
What’s more is that the sunscreen doesn’t have that strong chemical smell.
Australian Gold Sheer Coverage Continuous Spray Sunscreen Kona Coffee Infused Bronzer (SPF 30)
While we were first drawn to the idea of coffee infused sunscreen, it’s the bronzer we’re impressed with. This sunscreen will coat your body in an indulgent and healthy glow. And yes, the smell is fantastic. Forget the self tanners, this sunscreen will be all you need this summer.
Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Body Mist Sunblock (SPF 100)
Neutrogena slays with this sheer spray sunblock. It’s broad spectrum protection helps fight UVA and UVB rays that are harmful to your skin. Have sensitive skin? No problem. Neutrogena’s Ultra Sheer Body Mist Sunblock isn’t going to clog your pores. It also won’t budge during your dip into the ocean while you’re at the beach. Your sensitive skin will thank you.
Neutrogena Cooldry Sport Spray (SPF 30)
This bad boy will help keep your skin protected even while you’re up a few points during a heated game of beach volleyball. Don’t worry, sweat won’t get rid of this sunscreen. The “Cooldry” technology helps keep the egg-frying heat off your skin while you enjoy the sun.
Alba Botanica Hawaiian Coconut Spray Sunscreen (SPF 50)
Alba Botanica is known for their eco-friendly products that suit both us, and the environment. It’s scented with a delightfully tropical smell that’s light and not too strong. Suitable for both sensitive skin and water activities, the Hawaiian Coconut Spray Sunscreen will lavish your skin and protect it from harmful rays.
