Today, we’re diving deep into one of my absolute non-negotiables when it comes to skincare: sunscreen.

Yeah, I know, you’ve heard it all before – “Wear sunscreen every day,” they say. But seriously, this is one piece of advice that’s golden.

And it’s not just me saying it; dermatologists worldwide are singing the same tune.

I’ve scoured the shelves and the web (shoutout to the Environmental Working Group (EWG) for the heavy lifting) to bring you the cream of the crop in sunscreens.

These picks aren’t just my faves; they’re also backed by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA)’s latest insights, highlighting zinc oxide and titanium dioxide as the safest ingredients for UV protection.

Without further ado, here are the sunscreens that have earned their spot in our top sunscreens list:
