Step 3: Choose the Right Sunscreens

FITNESS tested the latest formulas during sweat-dripping runs, high-noon weddings, and daylong barbecues to bring you these best buys.

Best For: Extra Protection
Supergoop! SPF 30 Bug-Away Spray ($16, has lemongrass to fend off pests and UV-fighting Parsol 1789 to keep skin safe.

Best For: Working Out
Neutrogena Ultimate Sport Sunblock Spray SPF 70+ ($9.99, drugstores) creates a netting-like layer that binds Helioplex, a UVA-shielding ingredient, as well as UVB filters, to sweaty skin.

Best For: Faces
La Roche-Posay Anthelios 60 ($27.50, feels like a light serum. The quick-dry SPF 60 formula leaves skin silky within seconds.

Best For: Bodies
Rite Aid Rx Suncare Advanced Protection SPF 30 ($8.49, hydrates skin and provides complete UV protection.

Best For: Small Spots
Clinique SPF 45 Targeted Protection Stick ($17.50, is ideal for ears, noses, and lips, which absorb the brunt of UV rays. Plus, it stores easily in your purse.
