Sunscreens Buying Guide

Our tests of more than 70 sunscreen lotions, sprays, sticks, and lip balms show that you can’t always rely on the sun protection factor (SPF). That number is a measure of protection from ultraviolet B radiation, which is the chief cause of sunburn and a contributor to skin cancer. We also tested for protection against ultraviolet A rays, which tan and age skin, and also trigger skin cancer. We found more than a dozen sunscreens that did well enough against both UVA and UVB to recommend.
