The best way to protect yourself from the sun is to wear a hat, long sleeves, and long pants, but in the heat of the summertime, you'll likely want to show more skin. It's important that you know which sunscreens will protect you and your family the most effectively.
Sunscreens that made the cut don't contain certain ingredients found in vitamin A, they are lotions rather than sprays and are between SPF15 and SPF50
They also protect against UVA and UVB rays.
