With summer right around the corner, now is the perfect time to stock up on sunscreen.
But with so many options out there, what should you look for?
Board-certified dermatologist Dr. Yvonne Chiu recommends a broad-spectrum sunscreen with SPF 30 or higher.
According to Chiu, sunscreens containing zinc oxide or titanium dioxide as the active ingredient are the most protective.
She also advises wearing sun-protective clothing and hats and avoiding the peak UV hours of 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Despite these suggestions, Chiu says “there is no single best sunscreen. The best sunscreen is one that you will use regularly and reapply regularly.”
