10 Best Sunscreens for your face

We have listed the top 10 sun creams of 2020. I know we have all been spending more time inside but it is vital that sunblock is used year-round.

You should always look for sunscreens with broad-spectrum coverage. This protects against UVB rays that cause burning and UVA rays that cause lasting damage. You should also use an SPF of 30 or higher, and reapply every two hours if you are in the sun.

Try not to stay in the direct sun for too long, take breaks, and always wear that sun hat!
