If you needed any more proof that sunscreen is a must, then look to Exhibit A, above: A photo that Ashley Benson shared on Instagram of herself holding a piece of her skin -- the result of horrible sunburn!
Disgusting, we know, but it's just more rock solid evidence that laying out without protection can cause serious damage. And with the sunny season officially kicking off tomorrow, it's more important than ever to stock up on SPF.
To make sure you have no excuses as to why you "forgot" to lather up with sunscreen before you hit the pool, we rounded up five of our favorite SPF products for you to shop.
Neutrogena Beach Defense Sunscreen Spray Broad Spectrum SPF 70, $10.49, neutrogena.com: This offers outstanding protection, plus the application is a breeze. (Bonus: For any sunscreen purchased now through July, Neutrogena will donate one to a family in need.)
L'Oreal Sublime Suncreen Oil Spray SPF 50+, $9.99, target.com: This oil is so much easier to apply than regular lotion-based sunscreens. Just spray it on and blend in -- no white streaks in sight!
Yes To Cucumbers Natural Sunscreen SPF 30 Stick, $8.99, amazon.com: One of the places we're constantly reapplying SPF? Our face. And this stick prevents red noses and cheeks.
Kiss My Face All Natural Sunspray Lotion SPF, $15.95, kissmyface.com: If you can't stand the standard sunscreen smell, you'll want to stock up on this one. It features a fun fruity scent.
Kate Somerville Body Glow Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 20, $45, katesomerville.com: This is definitely a splurge, but it's totally worth it. It smells like mango, it's super hydrating and it leaves your skin shimmering.
Do you always remember to use sunscreen when you're outside in the summer? Be honest!
