If You're Going To The Office
Look for: An SPF primer. "You'll look flawless and also be protected," says Day. (For best results, layer your regular SPF moisturizer on top of the primer, before applying makeup.) And don't forget about reapplying: For a quick touch-up before heading out to lunch, dust on an SPF mineral powder. "It goes on over your makeup, so you don't have to worry about messing up your foundation," says Day.


Try: Nars Pro-Prime Multi-Protect Primer SPF 30 Sunscreen ($34, and Colorescience Sunforgettable Mineral Powder SPF 50 ($60,

If You're Exercising Outdoors
Look for: An SPF 50 "sports" sunscreen. They're usually water-resistant, plus they're tested on people who are exercising, so they've been proven to endure during workouts, says Day. If you sweat a lot and sunscreen tends to run into your eyes, Marmur recommends using a tear-free children's sunscreen stick on your forehead. "They're waxy, so they stay put, plus if you wipe or wash off your sweat and get some sunscreen in your eyes, it won't sting," she says.


Try: Coppertone Sport Continuous Spray SPF 50 ($10, at drugstores) and Neutrogena Pure & Free Baby Sunscreen Stick SPF 60+ with Purescreen ($9, at drugstores)


5/5 Claire Benoist
If You're Breaking Out
Look for: A lightweight, noncomedogenic gel. Day also suggests making sure you cleanse well at the end of the day to remove any remaining pore-clogging residue.


Try: Bull Frog WaterArmor Sport Quik Gel Sunscreen SPF 50 ($11, at
