Best SPF for your skin type

We know, sunscreens have a bit of a reputation.
Mostly, they’re known for being sticky, oily, and generally unpleasant to wear. While there are some not-so-great SPF products out there, there are just as many (if not more) great options for you to try.
If you’re in the ‘I don’t like wearing sunscreen’ boat or the ever-popular ‘I just can’t find an SPF I actually like to wear’ boat— there is hope for you, lovely!

Because UV damage is so detrimental to our skin, causing signs of premature aging as well as the formation of skin cancer, our team at Skin by Lovely wants to get SPF into the hands of all of our patients. Here is our list of the best SPF products for each skin type, including our favorite anti-aging multi-tasking sunscreen.
