It is a common misperception that sunscreen should only be applied on hot, sunny days. This, however, is not the case. Sunscreen is crucial for the skin and should be worn at all times of the day (even inside your house). Because our skin works to shield us from dangerous ultraviolet radiation, we should apply sunscreen to protect ourselves. Even on gloomy days, our skin is vulnerable to the sun’s rays, which can eventually lead to skin cancer, discoloration, and wrinkles. Here are the top five sunscreens to test this summer with links for where to buy them.
