If you hate the goopy, thick mess that can come with traditional sunscreen or don’t like how half of your spray sunscreen gets lost in the wind, it’s time for you to try powder sunscreen. Using sunscreen in powder form has many benefits beyond protecting your face from sun damage. Powder sunscreen makes applying sun protection to your scalp easy and mess-free, so you can avoid scalp sunburn. Additionally, many of these products help set your makeup. We’ve rounded up our favorite powder sunscreens to try this summer.
