Memorial Day is on the horizon, and May is skin cancer awareness month — so that means it's a doubly great time to stock up on sunscreens for those summer travel plans. But we're not about lathering up in viscous white goop (with due respect to Goop). Nope, we're after the most luxurious and effective sunscreens out there. Stash one of these excellent options in your chic suitcase alongside your breezy caftans... and off you go!
1. Anthelios AOX: La Roche-Posay, $42.50
This antioxidant serum and sunscreen combination provides SPF 50 coverage. It also helps improve the look of those fine lines, and dark spots.
2. Diamond White Matte Finish Sun Protection Broad Spectrum SPF 50: Natura Bisse, $105
This brightening sunscreen is ideal for face, hands, neck, and décolletage. Available in both tinted and translucent, this cream is the perfect daytime sunblock — excellent when you want to go makeup free.
3. UV Protection Cream SPF 50+: Cle de Peau Beaute, $120
This lotion has extracts of thyme and turmeric (the health-promoting ingredient du jour) meant to help prevent damage to cells as well as future wrinkles.
4. Sun Protection Lotion SPF 30: La Prairie, $95
Since La Prairie is known for its skincare regimen, you can bet this cream feels like both a luxury treatment as well as acts as a traditional sunscreen.
5. UV Expert XL-Shield SPF 50: Lancome, $52
This soothing lotion gives your skin a matte finish — no greasy, oily sheen for those perfect vacay selfies — while also keeping it moisturized. Its so-called "anti-greyness action" is meant to keep your skin rosy and healthy looking.
6. The Broad Spectrum SPF 50 UV Protection Fluid: La Mer, $90
Grab a dab of the brand famous for being the most luxurious out there: La Mer. A dime-sized drop of this lotion will last all day. And in addition to protecting you from the elements, this sunscreen also works to improve skin discoloration.
