If you’re a skin care junkie, you know the importance of wearing SPF every day. Sunscreen is crucial for preventing wrinkles, sunspots, acne scarring, and skin cancer. Some dermatologists go as far as suggesting that a full skin care routine is useless if you aren’t using sun protection.

But the days of heavy, white formulas are gone. There’s a whole new crop of hydrating, weightless, and transparent sunscreens hitting the market, and oh, they’re good. Glamour staffers tried a bunch and picked out the best of the best. Read on for the sunscreens you’ll want to stock up—and layer—on all summer long.
