As the mercury rises, it's important to get the right sun protection for your exposure levels and skin type. This year, brands have got even more creative with a new generation of products with pleasant, comfortable textures for everyday wear. From sticks to waters to mists, here's a look at some of the alternatives to classic sun creams for day-to-day use and vacation protection this summer.
Sun protection waters
Vichy Solar Protective Water
Vichy has added to its Idéal Solaire line with two "Solar Protective Waters." These have a two-phase formulation -- with an oil phase and a water phase -- which melts into the skin while ensuring optimal protection (SPF 30). Say goodbye to stickiness with this super-light, quickly absorbed formula. It's available in two versions: Enhanced Tan Solar Protective Water and Hydrating Solar Protective Water.
Garnier UV Water
Garnier Ambre Solaire also has a transparent dual-phase water to protect skin from the sun's UV rays while ensuring comfort and hydration. This lightweight "UV Water" has UV filters and aloe vera for a refreshing non-sticky feel. It comes in SPF 20 and SPF 30 versions.
Sticks and roll-ons for pocket protection
Lancaster Sun Sport Roll-On SPF 30
Lancaster has a portable and quick-to-use protection that's ideal for outdoor sports and activities. This SPF 30 roll-on can be slipped easily into a bag and has Full Light technology for ultra-broad-spectrum protection targeting all of the sun's rays. It's also water- and sweat-resistant and is suitable for face and body.
Shiseido Clear Stick UV Protector WetForce
Shiseido's "Stick UV Protector WetForce" offers on-the-go sun protection with SPF 50+. With its easy-to-use format, the stick goes on clear and can be used under or over makeup. Plus, WetForce technology creates a protective veil that becomes stronger as it comes into contact with water or perspiration.
Avène Silky Mist SPF 30
Avène's "Silky Mist" promises easy and even application. This water-resistant sunscreen -- part way between an oil and a mist -- ensures effective protection with a clear, non-sticky finish. It can be used on the body, face and even hair.
Hampton Sun SPF 55 Continuous Mist Sunscreen
Hampton Sun's oil-free formula uses aloe vera and promises a silky, not sticky feel on the skin as well as fast absorption. A 360-degree non-aerosol spray mechanism allows for easy application and the scent is the brand's signature Privet Bloom.
