Summer is all fun and games until you're layering on aloe vera every five minutes, desperately trying to recover from a sunburn, and the red, achy patches aren't just the result of a long beach day. Anytime you're in the sun — like for a weekend walk in the park or an after-work rooftop drink — it's a possibility. Unfortunately, while we are pretty diligent about applying sunscreen all over our faces every day, sometimes we forget that the other 90% of our body needs a security blanket when we're not on vacation.
If the idea of applying a sticky, chalky sunscreen to your arms and legs for a Monday at the office sounds unappealing, think again. Beauty brands have found clever ways to put SPF in all our go-to products: facial moisturizers, setting sprays, and even body lotions. These formulas offer the same body-care benefits, including moisturizing ingredients and glowy finishes, with a side of SPF.
Ahead, we've rounded up the best body lotions with SPF 30 or more, so you can protect yourself from the sun on a daily basis, and put that aloe vera away... for now.
