Because the warmer weather has come, people will be staying out more for activities like camping and going to the beach. As owners of our bodies, our duty is to care for them using sunscreens. However, with the number of sunscreens amassed on the market, choosing a suitable sunscreen could get overwhelming. Well, let us help you in that area.

And if you need help getting ahold of these sunscreens on the list or any product at all, we can help you with that, as well. Shippsy is a delivery carrier making hard-to-come-by goods in Canada accessible. Shippsy users are given their own US mailing address that they can use when purchasing products. Read on as we explain how easy it is to ship with Shippsy.

What to look for in Sunscreen?

SPF Level

It is the first and foremost that you should consider sunscreens. The SPF (Sun Protection Factor) level is the determining factor, indicating how much protection it can give to your skin. The rule of the thumb is the higher the SPF, the more it can protect from UVA and UVB rays.

Chemical or Mineral?

Chemical and Mineral or physical sunscreens pertain to the active ingredients present in the product. Chemical sunscreens use the likes of oxybenzone and avobenzone. In contrast, mineral sunscreens opt for zinc oxide, among others, to protect our skin. It is worth noting the ongoing dispute on the same active ingredients used in chemical sunscreens. It is said to cause bleaching of the coral reefs.

Consistency and Scent

Whether a chemical or mineral sunscreen, it is the main reason behind the consistency of a product. Mineral sunscreens are thicker and stickier. They also leave a white cast more quickly than their chemical counterparts. Since these two sunscreens work differently to absorb UV rays, one might be more susceptible to irritation. Moreover, most people prefer muted to no fragrance sunscreens for their face and mild ones for the body.

Face Sunscreens Or Body Sunscreens?

As the manufacturing of all products is unique, some sunscreens specialize in one aspect over the other. A formulation could be more appropriate for the application, and the scent is preferable as a facial product. The price point is essential when choosing a sunscreen for the face or the body.

Face Sunscreens

It is crucial to apply face sunscreen when we start our day. Aside from protecting us from harmful rays and light, it can tone and even our skin. Some formulations even moisturize and brighten! Here are our suggestions for you.

1. Supergoop! Unseen Sunscreen

This sunscreen from Supergoop! is invisible. After application, it is absorbed quickly by the skin, feeling light. Since it is oil-free, it is suitable for oily skin. Unseen Sunscreen with SPF 40 could also double as a primer. And the best part? It is cruelty-free and gluten-free.

2. ISDIN Eryfotona Actinica Mineral Sunscreen

Out of the face sunscreens on the list, this is the most pricey, and for a good reason. Isdin's Eryfotona Actinica protects the wearer from the damage caused by various UV rays. It is mineral-based, making it beneficial to our reefs and oceans. It also has vitamin E to fight the early signs of aging and photolyase to aid our skin in restoring the damaged skin.

3. La Roche-Posay Anthelios Dry Touch Sunscreen

For people who have difficulties finding a sunscreen that does not cause breakouts, we have La Roche-Posay's Anthelios Dry Touch sunscreen for you. It contains Perlite and Silica Complex; these ingredients absorb excess oil brought by heat and humidity. It is also paraben-free, making it suitable for sensitive skin.

Body Sunscreens

Body sunscreens are the most versatile of all sunscreens. We listed some ideal products for the body and the face.

1. Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Dry-Touch

Tried and tested is what we could best describe this product. It is a great daily sunscreen that you can slather generously and regularly because it is budget-friendly. It is perfect now that we are entering the warmer months with its non-greasy SPF 70 lotion.

Stock up on this summer essential with Shippsy. We bring closer to you the brands that you love without much frills and stress on your part. Through our package forwarding service, we can deliver it to your doorstep via Canada Post. Delivery of your goods to Canada has never been easier.

3. Shiseido Ultimate Sun Protector Lotion

The last product is from Shiseido, a well-acclaimed Japanese brand. It is a luxurious sunscreen that goes on clear for all akin types. The Ultimate Sun Protector Lotion provides the wearer with an invisible and lightweight layer that protects the longer it is worn. It is also dermatologically tested and reef-friendly.
