Out of the Bottle

These sunscreens offer the UV protection of traditional lotions without the mess.

I was born destined for sunburn. Even in the shade or on a cloudy day, I can burn, so I’m constantly looking for alternatives to sticky sunscreens that leave room for operator error resulting in patchy sunburn. (And yes, I speak from experience.) Thankfully, there’s a whole range new sunscreen products with UV protection built right in. Best of all that means no reapplication is necessary. The Skin Cancer Foundation has put their seal on Coolibar, Columbia, and SunGuard products.
