Top-5 Sunscreens For 2021


A sunscreen is a cosmetic substance that helps your skin avoid sun damage. What it does is it blocks ultraviolet rays that usually go unimpeded to your skin and damage the cells. This causes cell damage, makes it age faster and may even cause skin cancer. Therefore, it is a good idea to protect your skin from sunlight.

And there are plenty of situations when your skin will be subjected to excessive ultraviolet – for example when you are taking a walk in the summer and do not want to overexpose the face. Before people used umbrellas to keep the sun of their skin, and today they use sunscreens to do this. So, if you are also willing to preserve your skin from excessive sunlight, you should invest in a sunscreen.

However, there are plenty of various screens of different composition and volume present on the market, and while some are advantageous for skin, others do a bad job at keeping UV away. Some may even cause allergies, hence it is wise to choose one that is made by a trusted manufacturer and is certified safe.

In this list we have assembled the best 5 sunscreens on the market, in order to help people make a wise decision when choosing one. All models presented here have a good price and are totally safe.

This product is designed to kill many birds with one stone - it moisturizes your skin, revitalizing it and making it younger, and also protects the skin from oxidation and sun damage. This means that this is not just sunscreen, there is a lot more to it than that!

The sunscreen contains a unique ingredient, known as PSP. This substance consists of a balanced mixture of polypeptides and proteins that restore and nourish the skin. The second ingredient is derived from the wild yam, and its purpose is to moisturize the skin. 

Antioxidants protect from free-radicals, and the multifunctional balm covers the skin from ultraviolet rays.

If you are using this as an everyday cream, you should apply the product to the face and neck. And if you know that you are going to be out in the sun, the sunscreen must be applied 15 minutes before you go out, and must be reapplied again for every two hours of sun exposure.

One thing to note though - the sunscreen will wash off with water, so if you are likely to become sweaty or planning on going swimming, you should combine it with a sunscreen that is water-resistant.

Pros:

  • Multifunctional and versatile
  • Universal protection
  • Revitalizes and hydrates skin

Cons:

  • Expensive

This sunscreen improves skin health while protecting it from damaging ultraviolet rays and oxidation. Free radicals and sun rays cause the skin to get dry and age. This product stops them, by combining antioxidants, UVA-protection, and moisturizing elements.

The protection from ultraviolet rays is very strong. Studies have even shown that the treated skin suffers less cell damage in the sun than untreated skin in the shade! This amazing result is achieved by a blend of solutions and vitamins that absorbs the UV radiation and protects the skin underneath from damage.

The moisturizing effect begins very quickly right after the application - the solution is quickly absorbed by the skin, and does not stay on the surface like ordinary lotion.

The sunscreen is easy to apply. All you need to do is to apply some on the palms or fingers and rub your hands together. After that you must gently smooth it over the face and neck.

Pros:

  • Quickly absorbed by the skin
  • Multifunctional
  • Long-lasting effect

Cons:

  • Leaves a slight white shine

This creators of this sunscreen decided to go a step further. This product does not only protect the skin from UVA and UVB-type sun radiation, but also protects it from infrared rays, which usually pass right through ordinary sunscreen and damage the skin.

Besides sun damage, skin is also harmed by oxidation and moisture loss. To fix this problem, the sunscreen contains powerful antioxidants and moisturizing solutions, which are quickly absorbed by the skin.

The product works best when it is applied in the morning all over the face, chest, neck, and other areas that are usually exposed to the sun. The sunscreen must be applied generously, not sparingly. Do not worry - the product will not leave an oily shine like lotions, and it is completely weightless, almost like it is not even there. If you are planning on spending plenty of time in the sun, the sunscreen must be reapplied every two hours.

Pros:

  • Protects from infrared radiation
  • Easily absorbed by the skin, does not stay on the surface
  • Works as an everyday moisturizer
