Slick on a Sunscreen Stick for On-The-Go UV Protection
They sink in faster than a cream and are less messy than a spray.
We all know by now that SPF is an absolute must—regardless of weather, the sun’s rays can shine down on us strong. But creams and spray formulas can be a hassle to reapply, and it’s easy to miss spots—that’s why we recommend tossing a sunscreen stick in your bag. Here are our top picks.
The most-forgotten sunscreen spots are the scalp, neck, hands and feet. A sunscreen stick gets into the nooks and crannies of those areas and dries down quickly so you or your little one can get back to splashing.
You can avoid adding unnecessary weight to your purse or beach bag by stocking up on travel-size SPF. Unsure of how much of your stick sunscreen to apply? Enough for the skin to shine, then rub it in. For maximum sun protection, reapply your sunscreen stick every two hours and opt for a formula of SPF 30 or higher.
Skin experts recommend applying moisturizer first, letting that sink in, then topping it with your sunscreen of choice. You can then follow with your makeup.
