It is undeniably hot! And it is undeniably summer in this part of the world. And when it is summer, all the more that we are exposed to the harmful rays of the sun. While it is fun to enjoy the great outdoors with the longer daylight and more activities to be had, it is very imperative that we also take extreme caution in keeping our skin well-guarded from the heat.

There are plenty of sunscreen lotions or spray sold in the market and not all of them are great for the type of protection that you need.

One way to ensure you get the best and highest protection is to buy a sunscreen lotion with higher SPF and have high water-resistant factor so that, when you use it in the beach area, it stays longer even when you’re in and out of the water.

Check out these sunscreen lotion that tops the review charts in the market:
