Wondering how best to protect your skin while surfing? Here are our top three pics (two in the video below and one other further down) for sunscreens that stay on your face, as well as other strategies to minimize sunscreen use but still stay protected. We love wearing hats and cute surf gear in the water. No one wants any more wrinkles!
To buy these sunscreens online (we don’t get a commission, we just think they are the best!), you can find them here and also on Amazon:
Another great option not mentioned in the Surf With Amigas video, which is the sunscreen of choice of SWA founder Holly Beck is Shade Sunscreen. It is also a mineral based sunscreen tested by pro surf and snow athletes. The liquid version does not run into your eyes, but if you like to carry on only, they also have a stick.
Some info about Shade Sunscreen:
It is no secret that UV exposure is a great risk to all of us. At Shade Sunscreen we live an active lifestyle and with that comes the risk of exposure to UV-Rays above and beyond normal exposure. Which has challenged us to create a sunscreen for athletes, parents, kids and everyone else who does not want to live life in the shadows. In doing so we aimed to create sunscreen products that not only offer superior protection from UV exposure, while being light enough to wear on a daily basis and be tough enough to hold up in our daily activities and still be conscious of our bodies, children, environment, and reefs. Our formulas contain the highest quality Non-Nano Zinc and Titanium Dioxide and have No Chemical Sunscreens, Paraben Free, Glycol Free, and have no animal derived ingredients. It is our commitment to stay at the forefront of innovation in sunscreen formulations and develop the best performing, safest products available.
