Welcome to the new world of SPF, where broad-spectrum formulas are more elegant than ever before: clear and tinted zincs have finally eliminated the “white cast” grouse, and the addition of anti-aging actives turn lotions that were once reserved for beach days into potent skin-care treatments.

Best for Glowy Skin

Move over matte: These trending face formulas are infused with hydrators like ceramides and hyaluronic acid to give skin a luminous sheen.

Best for Darker Skin Tones

New clear serums and tinted zinc up the SPF shade game, catering to a broader range of skin tones than ever before.

Best for Full-Body Coverage

From sprays and lotions to milks and gels, these sunblocks deliver the UV defense our bodies need to keep burns at bay.

Best for Layering Over Makeup

Powders and setting sprays are ideal for post-makeup protection and midday touch-ups; tinted balms can keep lips shielded, too.
