White cast, oily residue and thick formulas are so last year. This summer, gel sunscreen is in style. Invisible gel formulas blend nicely with any skin tone, and they’re often non-comedogenic, so they’re safe for all skin types as well. The fast-absorbing gels also tend to leave behind a subtle glow or give a blurring effect, which makes them ideal for wearing under makeup or helping you look your best with a clean face while you sweat it out in the sun.
