National Sunscreen Day is May 24, and this super important day serves as a reminder to slather ourselves with sunblock before basking in the sunlight. The feel-good effects of the sun can be incredibly beneficial to our minds and bodies. Vitamin D or the “sunshine vitamin” can have a huge impact on depression, improve our mood and even lower the risk of cancer. While all of these positives are great, we can’t forget the downsides of too much exposure to sunlight.
National Sunscreen Day, otherwise known as “Don’t Fry Day” is a great reason to purchase a new sunscreen and a friendly reminder that we should be thinking about sun protection on a daily basis. Sunscreen not only protects us from uncomfortable sunburn and weird tan lines, but it is a vital tool that assists in shielding your skin from the harmful effects of UVA/UVB rays. So whether you are planning a day out in the sun to soak up all the benefits the rays can provide or are just enjoying a much deserved day at the beach, we have put together a list of the best sunscreens on the market right now.
