We all know that every morning before you step outside, you slather on a thick layer of sunscreen, right? We mean, you wouldn’t dare disobey the laws of the world by going near sunlight with at least SPF 30 on, RIGHT? We’re going to choose to believe that you’re nodding your head right now, because despite the fact it’s often skipped in beauty routines (shame, shame, shame), it’s literally the one thing preventing you from getting dark spots, wrinkles, and, you know, skin cancer. Don’t roll your eyes—one in five Americans will get skin cancer in their life time, and if you’re not wearing sunscreen, you’re pretty much asking to be part of the statistic.

Welp, if this were 1980, you’d have a point. But welcome to 2017, a time where sunscreens lightweight, cosmetically elegant, and geared toward your skin concerns, whether that’s super-sensitive, ridiculously oily, or so acne-prone, the sight of sunscreen breaks you out. Yes, your quest for the perfect facial sunscreen ends here, because we’ve rounded up seven formulas that are so damn moisturizing, healing, and correcting, that you’ll never go back to your sunscreen-less days again.
