Sun protection is a BIG topic in my family. To this day, my mother still monitors the number SPF I slather on pre-sunbathing — even from far away!

Since today is Melanoma Monday, and May is Skin Cancer Awareness Month, I decided to practice what my mom preaches, and share it with you! One of these mom-approved formulas is right for everyone.

For the athlete: Easy application and continuous, waterproof protection — Up & Up Sport Spray SPF 30 Sunscreen ($7)

For every skin tone: Invisible, even coverage with a complexion-boosting tint —
SkinCeuticals Physical Fusion UV Defense SPF 50 ($32)

For the beauty girl: Provides broad-spectrum protection light enough to wear under a full face of makeup — L'Oreal Paris Sublime Sun SPF 50+ Liquid Silk Sunshield for Face ($11)

For the sensitive-skin-conscious: Oil-free, without any parabens, and jam-packed with antioxidants, vitamins A, C, and E and soothing aloe — Peter Thomas Roth Sheer Liquid SPF 50 ($52)

For mature skin: Enriched with Dead Sea minerals, age-defying agents and essential vitamins — AHAVA Sun Protection Anti-Aging Moisturizer SPF 50 ($29)
