First things first: Sunscreens aren’t just meant for the ladies. In fact, it is probably the most powerful weapon you can have in your summer grooming arsenal. So, while the hot tropical summers could be a great time to show off your beach-ready bod, it can also rage havoc on your skin. Think: tanning, premature aging, pigmentation and even skin cancer in a lot of cases. Yikes. Enter sunscreens that safely shield you from the sun, offer a broad-spectrum coverage, block both kinds of UV rays and prevent your skin from resembling a pair of old leather boots. What’s more: the newer formulations are the perfect blend of hydration and sun protections—sans those pesky white residues. Here’s the checklist.
