Choose an Eco-Friendly Formula

“I’ve resisted sunscreen for a long time because it can make my Latina skin look pasty white and crazy greasy. I also hate how it stings my eyes when I’m exercising.”

Leslie, Real Simple Editor and outdoor runner in New York City

The derm says: “If you have oily skin, you’ll prefer a gel-based SPF rather than a cream. Avobenzone can sting the eyes, so try to avoid that ingredient, and choose a water-resistant formula that won’t run.”

Leslie Baumann, MD

A derm favorite: EltaMD UV Active Broad-Spectrum SPF 50+ Full Body Physical Sunscreen, $29; dermstore.com
