11 best sunscreens
Protect yourself this summer with our pick of the best sun creams, lotions and sprays for the body
Monday 12 May 2014
If you're outside in the sun - be it at home or abroad - sunscreen is a must to protect your precious skin from damage. We've tried and tested creams, sprays and lotions to find the best products for the job.
Remember, no matter what brand you choose, always apply 15-20 minutes before hitting the beach or pool -applied in direct sunlight, sunscreen can evaporate before it has a chance to bond with the skin and this makes it far less effective.
Make sure you always use enough; two-three tablespoons for the average adult is about right. Use at least a teaspoon for the face as well to avoid looking wrinkly and crinkly before your time.

The once-a-day application of UltraSun Family is brilliant for families who don't want to spend the whole holiday reapplying cream to kids who keep jumping in the sea and washing it off. While instantly dry, sand-resistant Soltan Dry Touch is really innovative. But practicalities aside, if I were heading to the beach solo, Nuxe Milky Spray's anti-ageing skincare benefits and sumptuous scent of tropical flowers is the ultimate in sun protection.
