Happy National Sunscreen Day! We’re celebrating by teaching you about the importance of sunscreen — and sharing the top 10 sunscreens

When it comes to your daily skincare regimen, there’s absolutely NOTHING more important than using proper sunscreen! While the summer sun and a nice tan sound great, the UVA and UVB rays from the sun can be incredibly harmful to you and your skin. Persistent sun exposure without sunscreen can lead to several adverse consequences like premature aging, sunspots, and even cancer. Even though a lot of us have been staying inside recently, it’s still important to wear sunscreen daily — the sun’s rays can penetrate windows and still affect your skin.

When it comes to sunscreen, the Cherie Fam knows what’s up! These are the top-rated sunscreens on Cherie that you should definitely look into as the weather warms up.
