We all know that feeling of regret after a long day out in the sun sans sunscreen. The pain, the itch and the peeling of a sunburn is in no way pleasant and definitely not how any of us want to spend our summer.
Not only is a sunburn horrible to handle for the first few days, but it really damages your skin. And I do not think anyone wants age spots, wrinkles or other serious skin problems, like cancer.
COTZ FACE- The Healthier Sunscreen ($19.99)
If you are looking for silky smooth skin this sunscreen is amazing! It feels like silk on your skin and has matte properties to keep your skin shine-free and flawless even on those super-hot days.This sunscreen is great to layer under makeup as well and comes in translucent or a slight tint so you do not even need to worry about heavy foundations. This sunscreen gets even better though, since it has no fragrances, oils, preservatives or parabens and is extremely gentle for all skin types.

Neutrogena sunscreens have always been a staple item in my beach bag for sunny months because of how great they feel on my skin and because I never have to worry about getting burnt when I wear them.This sunscreen in particular is fast-absorbing and water-resistant making it perfect for swimming or sweating in the summer heat.
