Yes, we should protecting our skin from the sun all year round—but, as we head into summer, it's particularly important to keep up the habit. However, not all sunscreens are created equally, and what may provide you with sun protection for your body may not be best for more sensitive areas like your lips, hair, eyes or hands. Your skin has a cornucopia of differences, requiring all sorts of varied defences, and we’ve got them covered here. Below, our top sunscreen picks for all your parts, so you can keep sun-safe from head to toe. —Jennifer Cox
pucker up. Kiehl’s Butterstick Lip Treatment ($25) is a soothing balm infused with a nourishing blend of naturally derived oils and butters. It thoroughly hydrates for soft, smooth and moisturized lips and has protective SPF 25.
luscious locks. Bumble and Bumble’s Solid & Striped Surf Spray ($32 at Sephora) has a salt-infused formula that creates texture, fullness and hold to mimic tousled, just-off-the-beach waves. It includes hair-nourishing ingredients, including seaweed and kelp extracts, for enhanced moisture, and the frothy, foaming mousse also delivers its own beach-protective blend made with coconut water that shields hair from the drying and damaging effects of the sun’s UVA and UVB rays.
all hands on deck. Your hands endure a lot in the summertime, so safeguard them with Vichy’s Ideal Hand & Nail Cream ($10). It has anti-aging qualities, deep hydration and anti-dark spot action plus nail protection, all in an ultra-sensorial texture. Your fingers never looked so fancy!
peeper protection. Head on over to The Bay and pick up Lancôme's Bienfait Multi Vital Eye ($54), which has SPF 28 to ensure your eyes, particularly the sensitive skin of your lids, are cared for during the summer months. Dehydration lines around the eyes will be visibly reduced and, because it’s enriched with caffeine, this formula helps to reduce the appearance of puffiness and dark circles.
