Which sunscreen is best for you?

The water baby

Aveda Sun Care Hair and Body Cleanser
Aveda Sun Care Hair and Body Cleanser

Are you intending to spend your summer submerged in the sea? Ironically, while you’re getting drenched, the salt and chlorine are stripping your hair and skin of much-needed moisture, leaving your body feeling parched. The chelator, babassu and tamanu oils in Aveda’s Sun Care Hair and Body Cleanser help remove water nasties, while restoring and protecting moisture balance.

The adventurer

MOD_W24_mens-summer_Kiehls UVFaceProtector_r01 2
If you’re the kind of guy who likes to feel the burn (muscles, not skin) during summer, this product is for you. Unlike conventional SPF creams, which tend to streak while you sweat, Kiehl’s Cross-Terrain Face Protector has a solid beeswax texture designed to sink into skin, keeping wind and sun damage at bay.
Kiehl’s cross-terrain face protector SPF50, $26, www.kiehls.com

Beach boy

While there can be no greater pleasure than a day in the sun, punctuated with a cooling dip in the sea, laying out has its obvious dangers. Shiseido’s Ultimate Sun Protection Lotion+ SPF 50 claims to prevent sun spots by shielding the inner cells and DNA. It’s also water-resistant for 80 minutes — but you should still reapply every two hours.

The staycationer
