Sun-sational: How to Use the Best Sunscreens

The best sunscreens to keep you pretty and protected all season long.
L Protection Perk: Wearing SPF Cuts Your Skin Cancer Risk in Half

You've got the stats down -- melanoma rates in women under 40 are on the rise, one in five Americans will get skin cancer -- but the latest news will reboot your motivation to shake the bake. A new study in the Journal of Clinical Oncology found that daily use of SPF 15+ sunscreen reduced melanoma risk by 50 percent. Fortunately, it's never been easier to shield your skin. "The newest sunscreens have smart technology and come in sophisticated formulas," says Jeannette Graf, MD, a dermatologist in Great Neck, New York. Our pick: oil, which offers high protection and gives skin a sheen. Try L'Oreal Paris Sublime Sun Sheer Protect Sunscreen Oil SPF 50+ ($11, drugstores), which feels silky thanks to its fast-absorbing combo of sunflower seed oil and shea butter.
