Did you know that it’s especially important to protect yourself against the sun’s rays during the summer when sunlight is strongest, and people spend a great amount of time outdoors? If you have darker skin, you may recognize how crucial it is to protect your skin – but, you may also have trouble finding formulas that don’t leave a white cast on your face and body. Well, search no more! Here are three sunscreens, recommended by Good Housekeeping, which leave no tell-tale white cast and offer excellent protection against the sun.

La Roche-Posay Anthelios Melt-in Milk Body Face Sunscreen Lotion Broad Spectrum SPF 100

Price: $24.99

With a milky consistency, this melt-in formula from French label La Roche-Posay leaves no white cast and hardly any sheen. In a study by Good Housekeeping, this formula ranked highest among testers with darker skin tones for its absorption and lack of white coloring. Plus, it’s so lightweight, you might even forget that you’re wearing 100 SPF!

Hawaiian Tropic Matte Effect Sunscreen Lotion SPF 30

Price: $11.00

The La Roche-Posay sunscreen may be Good Housekeeping’s favorite, but it’s also double the price of most sunscreens. That’s why, if you’re on a budget and still want a sunscreen that won’t leave a white cast, consider the Hawaiian Tropic Matte Effect Sunscreen Lotion. This SPF 30 sunscreen covers all the bases for your face and body, and it has a classic coconut-y smell that screams “summertime!”

Vichy LiftActiv Peptide-C Sunscreen SPF 30

Price: $39.00

Sunscreen is skincare, so why not maximize its effects by springing for an anti-aging formula? The LiftActiv Sunscreen by Vichy has SPF 30, leaves no white cast, and is chock full of age-reversing ingredients. These include Phyto peptides that firm skin’s appearance, vitamin C to brighten skin and reduce signs of aging, and mineralizing water, which strengthens the skin’s moisture barrier.
