Sun­screen situ “I’d pre­fer all nat­u­ral.” Dream screens Un­for­tu­nately, you prob­a­bly can’t find a plant to pro­tect you from the sun. (Sit­ting un­der a palm tree doesn’t count.) A lot of sun­screens pre­sented as “nat­u­ral” con­tain a phys­i­cal blocker: min­er­als such as zinc ox­ide or ti­ta­nium diox­ide that bounce rays back. (The al­ter­na­tive, chem­i­cal block­ers, soak up rays like a sponge.) Phys­i­cal block­ers are best for peo­ple with sen­si­tive skin, but they can leave a chalky residue. Try Live Clean Sport Min­eral Sun­screen Lo­tion SPF 45 ($17) or Kiss My Face Ev­ery­day Sun­screen Min­eral Mois­tur­izer SPF 15 ($15).

Sun­screen situ “I’m in­tern­ing, which means the only sun I’ll see is from my cube.” Dream screens Even if you work in a night­club, wear­ing sun­screen on the face is a must. If you don’t want to smell like a beach, try Cop­per­tone Clearly Sheer Spray Sun­screen SPF 30 ($10). Fra­grance houses, en­listed by the brand, came up with the spray’s “fresh, clean scent.” Or try Eau Ther­male Avène High Pro­tec­tion Emul­sion SPF 50+ ($25).

Sun­screen situ “I’ll be on the festival cir­cuit.” Dream screens Sun­screen is as es­sen­tial to Osheaga as a flower crown and fringe. New stick for­mu­las al­low for hands-free ap­pli­ca­tion and en­sure that your Fendi back­pack stays spill-free. Try Neu­tro­gena Ul­tra Sheer Face & Body Stick Sun­screen SPF 50+ (from $14) and Sun Bum Orig­i­nal Face Stick SPF 30 ($13).

Sun­Screen situ “I’ll be in the wa­ter more than a pre-Prince Eric Lit­tle Mer­maid.” Dream screens Savvy sun­screen com­pa­nies are em­brac­ing wa­ter. The Wet Force tech­nol­ogy in Shi­seido Ul­tra Sun Pro­tec­tion Lo­tion S Broad Spec­trum SPF 50+ ($49) gets stronger when skin is wet. It has a min­eral sen­sor with neg­a­tive ions that are at­tracted to pos­i­tive ions in wa­ter and sweat. Vichy Lab­o­ra­toires Idéal Soleil Sheer Lo­tion Bare Skin Feel SPF 60 ($29.95) con­tains wa­ter-sol­u­ble UV pro­tec­tor Mex­o­ryl SX. “Wa­ter sol­u­ble” means that it at­taches it­self to the wa­ter in skin, pro­vid­ing more uni­form cov­er­age. Garnier Om­brelle Sport En­durance Wa­ter/Sweat Re­sis­tant Lo­tion SPF 50+ ($20) is also wa­ter based, so feel free to ap­ply post-dip. For details, see Shop­ping Guide.
