It’s that time of year where you break out the lighter clothing and enjoy the beautiful weather. Spring is the perfect time to be outside. The sun stays out longer, but it’s not too hot, yet. Spring is also a great time to talk about the dangers of skin cancer and how you can protect your skin. The American Academy of Dermatology created Melanoma Monday, happening on the first Monday of May each year, to bring awareness to melanoma and teach you how to properly protect your (and your loved ones) skin.

For the best protection from UV rays, we suggest the following sunscreens:

Badger Broad Spectrum SPF 35 Sport Sunscreen

If you are heading out for a day in the water and sun, this is a great sunscreen to choose. It is thick and water resistant, lasting up to 80 minutes before the need to reapply. The sunscreen does leave a white cast on your skin, but if your kids will be in and out of the water, this is a good way to be sure they are fully covered. Badger recommends this sports sunscreen for skiing, snowboarding, surfing, running, biking, hiking, and swimming, so if it is good for those sports, it is good for everyday use.

Buy on Amazon for $13.59 for 2.9 fl oz.

BullFrog Water Armor Sports InstaCool SPF 50+ Spray

BullFrog has been a popular brand with beach lovers and surfers for decades – those who spend their days in the sun. Known for their highly effective sunscreen cream, they have created a spray version of their formula. Claimed to “deliver the longest-lasting water resistance available today,” this convenient spray will provide the whole family with a smooth application and up to 80 minutes of water resistance. The spray also cools and refreshes skin on contact.

Buy on Amazon for $13.39 for 6 fl oz.

Neutrogena Ultimate SportSPF 70+ (for face)

Formulated to withstand vigorous activities, this face sunscreen resists wear off from water, sweat and even wiping. It’s also oil-free, so it won’t clog pores or cause breakouts. Like the others, this sunscreen is water resistant for up to 80 minutes.

Buy on Amazon for $9.47 for 2.5 fl oz.

Banana Boat Ultra Defense Max Skin Protect SPF 110 spray

This cool spray will help get those hard to reach places while leaving your skin cool and protect, not oily or sticky. The high SPF blocks against 99% of UVB rays. Also, this formula is Enriched with Aloe Vera and Vitamin A & E, moisturizing your skin while protecting it.

Buy on Amazon for $11.99 for 6 fl oz.
