Up until now, the application of sunscreen onto wet skin can be a slight disaster. Taking on a drippy, milky consistency the sunscreen loses it’s protection powers. Thankfully hitting drugstore shelves this week are the H2O-defying, completely waterproof sunscreens from Neutrogena and Aveeno. Appropriately named Wet Skin and Hydrosport respectively, both have the ability to break through water molecules and adhere their broad spectrum UVA and UVB protecting formulas directly onto the skin—without needing to towel off and without the streaky mess.
