Nice weather allows us to participate in many outdoor activities and with summer right around the corner, it is important to protect oneself from harmful sun rays.
On a test done to reveal the top performing sunscreens, it was found that no one type – spray, cream, or lotion – protected best, according to Consumer Reports. It was also found that the three best buys were: Up & Up Sport SPF 30, No-Ad with Aloe and Vitamin E SPF 45, and Equate Baby SPF 50.
