The Latest Sunscreen Products


Consult any skin expert, and they’ll affirm: Sunscreen isn’t just an option, it’s essential. However, navigating the maze of available options to find the ideal one for your skin type and activity can be daunting. Many dread the traditional sunscreens for leaving a white residue, feeling too oily, or just being an inconvenience to wear. 

This backdrop makes the hunt for a sunscreen that not only offers protection but also feels and looks great, quite the challenge.

Here’s the silver lining: Modern formulations are about to revolutionize your perspective on sunscreen. At Rush to Beauty, based in sunny Beverly Hills, California, we’ve tried hundreds of brands and sought advice from our dermatologists partners and have come up with our top SPF picks. Before we dive into our curated sunscreen selections, let’s equip you with all the knowledge you need to discern the perfect sunscreen match for your skin.

Sunscreens typically fall into two main categories: mineral (often referred to as physical sunscreens) and chemical. Both types shield your skin from harmful sun rays, but they achieve this protection through distinct mechanisms.

1. **Mineral Sunscreens**: By examining the ingredient list and spotting titanium dioxide and zinc oxide, you can identify a mineral sunscreen. Renowned for being gentle, especially on sensitive skin types, they offer instant protection, eliminating the wait before sun exposure. However, one common drawback is their somewhat denser consistency, which can be a tad challenging to blend into the skin seamlessly.

2. **Chemical Sunscreens**: These are traditionally more user-friendly. They blend more easily and are less likely to leave a noticeable white residue. But note: they usually require around 20-30 minutes post-application to become fully effective.

Regardless of the type, dermatology experts universally agree that for daily use, an SPF of 30 is the minimum recommendation. To break it down further, SPF 15 filters out about 93% of UVB rays, SPF 30 handles 97%, and SPF 50 manages 98%. While this escalation might appear trivial, for individuals with heightened sun sensitivity or predisposition to skin issues, these minor increments are vital.

Application quantity and frequency are paramount. Studies from the American Academy of Dermatology (AAD) suggest most individuals use just 25-50% of the advised sunscreen amount. A good rule of thumb is to use a minimum of one ounce (comparable to filling a shot glass) for full body coverage. Dermatologist Loretta Ciraldo, MD, FAAD, emphasizes the FDA guideline to reapply every two hours during outdoor activities. Moreover, the AAD suggests supplementing sunscreens with sun-protective garments and avoiding sun exposure, especially during peak UV hours from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Regarding waterproof sunscreens, while ideal for aqua activities or sweating, remember: the FDA limits the water and sweat resistance claim to a maximum of 80 minutes. Thus, always reapply after emerging from the water.

Drawing from extensive firsthand experience with an array of sunscreens and our interactions with a diverse clientele at our Beverly Hills aesthetics salon, our team has carefully selected and stands by these products as the top-tier in sun protection.
