Get Ready For Summer With The Best Sunscreen For Face And Body
This is part of the series on the best anti aging products.
Sunscreen… Many dermatologist say that this is your best defense against aging. After all, almost 80 percent of our wrinkles are caused by sun damage. It is only right therefore to find the best sunscreen for face and body as part of your anti aging regimen.
Here are some that are worth noting.
Blue Lizard Sunscreen
When it comes to sun protection, there’s no other country that’s done it better than the Australians. And boy am I glad to know that Blue Lizard sunscreen’s ingredients are the same ones as those approved by the land down under. It’s a unique blend with one of the best uvb and uva protection.
The Blue Lizard Sunscreen for Face has added antioxidants and has SPF-30 protection. It’s also non greasy, applies very well on the face, and does not have any bad smell. Reviews also show that a lot of people with sensitive skin swear by this product.
You can choose from many different formula for specific skin such as Blue Lizard baby sunscreen protection, lotion, daily moistur and highly sensitive skin.

Obagi Nuderm Physical UV Sunblock With Sun Protection
Among all the sun protection products of Obagi, this is the one rated highly by the environmental working group (http://www.ewg.org). This also gets very high ratings from consumers.
However, there have been some complaints about problems in people with sensitive skin with reports of dry flaky skin after a few days of application.
On the positive side, those who have acne/breakout problems regard this very highly as like many Obagi products it apparently helps to keep the breakouts at bay.
Cellex-C Suncare Sunscreen and Moisturizer SPF30
One less cream to slather on your face. I love products like this. And with titanium and zinc oxide as the main ingredients, you know that you are very well protected.
Like Obagi above, it’s not cheap at $30.
Neutrogena Healthy Defense Oil-Free Sunblock Stick, SPF 30
This is good value for money and is one of the cheap affordable sunscreen around. It has a 30 SPF protection, has titanium dioxide and zinc oxide as ingredients. However, according to the cosmetics database, it does not have as much blocking strength as say, the blue lizard sunscreen.
This usually retails for $8 each, but you can usually buy a pack of three for $17 at Amazon.com
Aveeno Active Naturals Positively Radiant Daily Moisturizer SPF-30, UVA/UVB Sunscreen
Aveeno is always highly rated by consumers, so it’s no wonder that it’s included on our list. This is basically a moisturizer with excellent sun protection. Now that’s not the only one that I love about this product. It also happens to have natural light diffusers which is one of this instant wrinkle reducer things they put in cosmetics these days (wrinkles show again, of course once the cream wears out— it’s all cosmetics after all!
Unfortunately though, this contains parsol which many people are very very sensitive too. And which is said to be probably harmful in the long run. $16
Badger SPF30 For Face And Body
This is one of the safest sunscreen around. It’s organic and I love that it can both be used for the face and body. Compared to the other sunscreen listed on this page, this safe healthy alternative also happens to be one of the cheapest ones at about $12.
