Now that summer is officially here, you should pick up a fresh bottle (or two) of sunscreen to get you through the sunniest months. As you probably already know, SPF is absolutely essential for preventing painful burns and life-threatening forms of cancer — not to mention keeping premature aging, sun spots, hyperpigmentation, and a world of other skin concerns at bay. 

“The most important thing you can do is keep trying different formulas until you find one you really like and will consistently wear,” Morgan Rackley, celebrity esthetician and owner of Luminous Skin Atlanta, tells PEOPLE.

“Most people tend to not regularly wear SPF because they don’t like how it feels or looks — but technology has come such a long way,” she adds. “Sunscreens are getting thinner in consistency and now have beautiful blending capabilities. Remember, the best SPF is the one you will actually wear!”

To Rackley’s point, thick, greasy, gloppy sunscreens aren’t the norm these days. The latest products to hit the market are easy to layer into your regular skincare routine and not only supremely protective against sun damage, but also packed with nourishing ingredients to improve the tone and texture of your skin over time. 

New SPF Products to Try for Summer 2022

In case you’re concerned that fancy new formulas may not work as well as old-school sunscreens, Rackley assured us that these innovative products really do deliver, meaning you’ll be protected against UVA and UVB rays while reaping the benefits of effective anti-aging ingredients.

“Sunscreens have very strict rules they must abide by to be able to get a sunscreen label, so I would not worry about efficacy in these skincare-meets-sunscreen products. Instead, I would be more concerned that you’re using enough of the product to get the optimum coverage and protection,” she says. 

However, it would never hurt to use traditional sunscreen in conjunction with these products — and you should definitely be using it on other parts of your body, like your neck, shoulders, arms, hands, legs, and feet, and reapplying often if you’re staying outside.
