Sunscreen is crucial for healthy skin, no ifs, ands, or buts about it. We like this version by Up & Up for its SPF 30 and sweat-proof, water-resistant formula, which means you can go longer in between applications. <a href="http://www.target.com/p/up-up-spf-30-10-4-oz/-/A-11982646" target="_hplink">SPF 30, $4.54, Target</a>

It protects with SPF 70 and won't irritate your skin or clog your pores. <a href="http://www.cvs.com/shop/product-detail/CVS-Ultimate-Sheer-Daily-Sunscreen-for-Face-SPF-70?skuId=822567" target="_hplink">Sheer Daily Sunscreen For Face SPF 70, $10.99, CVS</a>
