Best Anti-aging SPF
Dr. Dennis Gross Dark Spot Defense SPF 50 Sunscreen
You know that wearing SPF daily helps prevent age spots from cropping up, but, thanks to a special antioxidant complex, this overachieving sunscreen goes a step further to help reduce the appearance of existing brown marks. Bonus: A hydrating trio of ceramides, hyaluronic acid, and primrose oil keep skin smooth and supple so you can swap it for your regular moisturizer.

Best Body SPF
Avène Ultra-Light Hydrating Sunscreen Lotion Spray SPF 50+
Not only does this super-convenient, fine mist promise broad spectrum UVA and UVB protection, but clinical studies show it will leave your skin twice as hydrated for up to eight hours after use. Plus its non-irritating chemical filters are gentle enough for those with sensitive skin. Ace your application by spritzing it on your skin before you get dressed and go outside (that way you won’t miss any spots), then toss it in your bag for fuss-free touch ups.

Best Scalp Shield
Nios Shield Leave-In Conditioner SPF 15
Your scalp is one of those sneaky, burn-prone spots that's often neglected when it comes to sun protection. We get it—coating your roots in goop doesn’t make for a good hair day. This non-greasy, sulfate-free leave-in conditioning spray contains SPF to protect your hair color and your scalp. It gets better: Moroccan argan oil and vitamin E smooth frizz and boost shine.

Now protecting your whole family from the sun’s harsh rays will be a day at the beach. With this 100 percent natural mineral formula you can feel good about coating your kiddos in it. It's chemical- and fragrance-free, formulated without nano minerals (teeny tiny particles that can potentially penetrate the skin), and is water-resistant for 40 minutes. Soothing aloe and vitamin E will keep their delicate skin moisturized.

Best Lip SPF
Supergoop! AcaiFusion Lip Balm SPF 30
Balms loaded with sunscreen tend to leave a white, chalky residue on lips. Not this stellar squeeze tube. It deposits a sheer pink tint (truly all you need), a subtle berry flavor (yum), and a buttery texture. Your lips will thank you.

Coola Face SPF 30 Makeup Setting Spray
Although it's crucial, reapplying facial sunscreen is tricky (ok, really messy) when you are wearing makeup. This new spray saves the day. After you apply makeup, shake this certified organic SPF 30 setting spray, hold it at arm's length away from your face, then mist on a few pumps. It has a matte finish and prevents your makeup from moving despite the heat. Its green tea and aloe scent make touchups feel like a mini spa retreat.

Best Eye SPF
Skinceuticals Physical Eye UV Defense SPF 50
The thin skin around the eyes is easily irritated by traditional sunscreens. This ophthalmologist-tested formula was created specially for the brow bones, lids, and fragile skin under the eyes. Its beige tint camouflages dark circles and redness and its non-migrating texture prevents it from getting into your eyes.
