Everybody needs sunscreen year round, but when summer hits many of  us spend more and more time outside. This means it’s time to step up our sunscreen game.

But we do, so here is a list of a several sunscreens you can buy at your local drugstore that won’t leave that god awful white/ashy caste on your skin.

Well Hello! My name is Lisa and you’ve stumbled upon my own little corner of the world. I’m a lipstick-loving, high heel junkie, mom, and wife. When I’m not here bringing you the latest in beauty, fashion, hot topics, and bits and pieces of my life with my family, you can find me over on youtube swatching lipsticks and sharing my latest natural hairstyles. Make sure you also follow me on Instagram and Snapchat under my brand name Lisa A La Mode. I’m a real person. I promise.

  1. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! For this list. I know there are lots of boutique brands that have ash free sunscreen but I do not want to spent that much just for my body. Do you find the Hawaian Tropic scent lingers long? I like the smell of coconut but will also spend time in professional areas so being heavily scented will be a problem.

  2. Wearing sunscreen daily will help to protect your complexion against harmful UV rays that make scars darker. Or you can try a product with vitamin C to help even out discoloration from post-breakout scars.
