One of the catch-22s when it comes to wearing sunscreen: Applying it and then reapplying it throughout the day can feel like a chore. Plus, the wrong formula can turn your deft second-skin makeup application into a cakey, pastey nightmare. If you're like us, you're looking for an SPF that won't disrupt the skincare or makeup products already layered onto your skin and provides a quick refresh. Which is where SPF sprays come into play. Sprays act as invisible protective shield over your skin for a necessary dose of sun protection. Even when you're chilling inside on sweltering afternoons, you'll want to be sure to apply and reapply SPF throughout the day—especially if you sit near a window while working from home, or like to drive from place to place.
