Best Sun Protection 2022: The 5 best sunscreens for golfers
As golfers, we spend A LOT of time in the sun. It’s super important to make sure we’re taking steps to protect our skin from the sun’s harmful rays. Sometimes that can feel like a hassle, or hard to remember. I can’t be alone! These products help make sun protection easier and part of your golf (and life) routine.
This is my sunscreen of choice. It’s matte — an odd way to describe sunscreen, I know, but you have to try it to fully understand. The texture is different from any sunscreen I’ve ever used, and you can’t even feel it on your skin within seconds of applying it. It’s extra ideal for on-course application for this reason — no more slimy hands!
Invisible Daily SPF 30
For similar reasons, we love this sunscreen stick from Supergoop. It doesn’t need to touch your hands at all during application and it easily tucks into your golf bag so you can never forget it at home.
Supergroup 100% Mineral Sunscreen Stick SPF 50
Oars and Alps
This is a sunscreen spray (that also doesn’t need to touch your hands) that hydrates and brightens your skin in addition to providing sun protection. Like other sprays, you’ll have to be careful applying in the wind, or you may end up with a streaky sunburn. But if you’re a spray-stan, this is a great one that won’t leave you smelling like a banana.
Oars and Alps Hydrating Antioxidant SPF 50 Spray
This stuff is a little bit pricey, but it’s the best option if you have sensitive skin. It’s an unscented, lightweight, oil-free formula that’s easy to incorporate into your morning routine. And, because of its size, it’s easy to bring along to the course as well.
EltaMD UV Clear Broad-Spectrum SPF 46
This sheer zinc-based sunscreen excludes all the harmful chemicals alternative brands can sometimes have to be safer for you and our environment. Considering sport is in the name, this will hold up even during the hottest of summer rounds.
