Lifeguards’ skills aren’t limited to scanning the horizon for sharks and showing off their ripped abs—they could also teach us a thing or two about wearing sunscreen. That’s why we stood up and paid attention when we learned that this sweat-proof, water-resistant SPF 45 lotion is endorsed by the American Lifeguard Association. It’s designed to moisturize skin with a blend of organic botanicals and is completely hypoallergenic—good news for sensitive types. Plus, the sheer formula blends in completely so you won’t be left with any white residue.
How it Works
A walloping team of six safe sunscreens—octocrylene, octinoxate, oxybenzone, octisalate, homosalate, avobenzone—absorb both UVA and UVB rays. Meanwhile, aloe vera, shea butter, and beeswax soften skin. Antioxidant-rich cucumber, ginger, evening primrose, and arnica soothe any irritation. Plus, the formula doesn’t contain any parabens.
How to Use
Smooth a generous amount all over your body. Apply at least fifteen minutes prior to sun exposure.
