While we should be wearing SPF every day, it’s especially important in the summer. For years sunscreen has had a bad rap for leaving a nasty feeling on the skin. But in reality, most of the time you’re not using the right sunscreen for your skin type. We’ve rounded 12 of our favorite SPF recommendations that’ll help every skin type find its perfect match.

Oily Skin

Summer can be a tricky time for those with oily skin. You want a product with coverage and protection, but won’t feel greasy and clog the pores.

We can’t talk about SPF without including Supergoop. The Supergoop mineral sunscreen SPF 40 has a lightweight formula that simultaneously conditions and protects the skin.

The Hawaiian Tropical Mineral Milk Spray has a hands-free application process to avoid that sticky sunscreen film on the hands. Plus, it dries down to a matte finish you won’t even feel. The right ingredient combo is key to getting brightness without the oiliness.

Don’t let the name fool you, the Saie Slip Tint Dewy Tinted Moisturizer offers radiance without looking greasy. So if you are oily but still like to slightly glow this spf is for you. With 14 shades of tinted sunscreens that plump the skin with a yummy licorice extract.

And Shiseido’s Urban Environment Oil-Free Sunscreen has a peony root water base that minimizes the appearance of pores.

Dry Skin

On the opposite spectrum, for those with dry skin, it’s important to find SPF that won’t further dry out your skin and cause peeling. A pro tip for shopping for dry skin-friendly products is to avoid those with ingredients like ethanols and alcohol.

The Tinted Superhue Serum stick has vitamin C that hydrates and fades dark marks all while having 30 SPF.

The Dr. Loretta Universal Glow SPF 40 acts as an effective sunscreen and hydrating moisturizer all in one! Protecting against not just sun rays, but blue light and pollution as well!

Cay Skin Isle’s Glow Face Lotion is perfect for those who want both protect their face but also glow at the same time.

Glow Recipe’s Watermelon Glow SPF includes hydrating ingredients like hyaluronic acid and niacinamide to help nourish the skin while also protecting it. Plus who doesn’t want to smell like watermelon?

Acne Prone Skin

Anyone dealing with acne knows the hesitance about putting just anything on your face. Using the best SPFs for acne-prone skin will keep your skin protected and flare-up-free this season!

Products like Kosas DreamBeam that have repairing ingredients like hyaluronic acid are great additions to the skincare routine.

The Bliss Block invisible daily sunscreen has a universal tint that can cover acne marks. Not to mention including antioxidants like blueberry and tea extracts that keep your skin from getting oily.

Hero Cosmetics, the same brand behind the iconic pimple patches, has a great force field sunscreen that also tackles managing pimples and cystic bumps.

And finally, the tiny Sun Bum face stick has a powerful SPF 50, all while using Aloe Vera to soothe the skin.

Happy Eid-ul-Adha to those who are celebrating!
