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.

Coolibar Packable Hat
Crushable and rollable, this women’s hat with a 4" brim is also rated SPF 50+.
($30; www.coolibar.com)

Columbia Voyager Shirt
Featuring OmniDry and OmniShield, this SPF 30-rated men’s shirt will keep you dry and protected from the sun.
($70; www.columbia.com)

SunGuard
Add SunGuard to your laundry, and your clothes will immediately have an SPF of 30. One package lasts for 20 washings.
