Labor (And Every) Day Skin Savers

Whether you're headed to the beach, pool, a picnic or just your backyard this weekend, don't forget to pack SPF protection for body, face and lips. Our site-specific picks (all have broad

spectrum UVA/UVB protection):

BODY Coppertone Sport Sunscreen Continuous Spray SPF 70+ ($9.99) Using a spray makes me more likely to reapply often, since it's so easy; this one leaves a sheen on skin and won't sweat off.

FACE Aveeno Positively Ageless Sunblock Face Lotion SPF 70 ($11.99) is a substantial cream that's great for dry skin like mine; Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Liquid Sunblock SPF 70 ($11.99) is a lightweight, shine-free formula that's perfect for normal to oily skin.

LIPS Hawaiian Tropic Lip Balm Sunscreen Stick SPF 45+ ($2.49) This wears nicely on its own or under lip color, and contains moisturizers like cocoa butter and aloe vera.

Reapply each at least every two hours and seek shade whenever possible. What are your favorite sunscreens and what do you love about them? Have a safe and happy Labor Day weekend!
