Fellas, These Sunscreen Picks Are Just For You

Choosing the right sunscreen for your skin should be easy enough, but that’s not always the case. Depending on your preferences, you can consider different SPF levels (we recommend one above 15), finishes, textures, and more. Oftentimes the most tedious task is sorting through the seemingly never-ending assortment of formulas to find one that checks off all the right boxes.

Why You Should Wear Sunscreen Daily

Don’t think you need sunscreen? Think again. Broad-spectrum sunscreen can not only help keep visible signs of aging at bay, but it also helps protect your skin against sunburn and reduces the risk of certain skin cancers. Applying before heading outdoors is great, but what’s even better—and recommended by experts—is to reapply at least every two hours if not sooner. So instead of waiting for skin damage to occur, be proactive by applying broad-spectrum sunscreen daily and taking additional sun protection measures. To that end, we’re sharing our picks of the best sunscreen for men from the L’Oreal portfolio of brands. Whether you’re hanging out by the pool or going for a run outdoors, take your pick of the formulas below!

Baxter of California SPF 15 Oil Free Moisturizer

Short on time? Reach for a multi-tasking formula that doubles as both a moisturizer and sunscreen. This oil-free formula contains vitamin E and glycerin, along with broad-spectrum SPF 15 to protect your skin against the harmful UV rays.
