July 8, 2022

After waiting a long time, Summer is here! But before we jump to soak up the sun let’s review the top 10 face sunscreens to get this summer.

I can’t stress enough the importance of taking care of our skin, especially our face. Sunscreens are the holy grail of skincare.

During the summer we spend more time outdoors, our days are usually out in the sun so we must use sunscreen to protect the delicate skin of the face.

There are many sunscreens out there, and some have different features to suit every skin type, so to make it easy for you I made this list of the top face sunscreens to get right now.
