Top 10 Sunscreens for Summer.

Sunscreen is a vital part of your daily routine. With melanoma rates on the rise, sunscreen with SPF of 15 or greater should be used each and everyday. While I can get away with an SPF 15 on days when I am not spending much time outdoors, I use much higher SPF rated sunscreen when outside or at the pool or beach. It is the easiest way to protect skin from the suns harmful, damaging rays.

I have been testing a lot of sunscreens for summer, and I am the first to admit that I am very picky about them. Out of all of the sunscreen I have tried, I can strongly recommend any of these 10. Here are my favorite top 10 sunscreens to protect skin this summer.
