- Love getting outside to work up a sweat in the sun? While all that outdoor exercise is great for your body, exposure to the ultraviolet energy, or UV, found in sunlight can put you at risk for sunburn and long-term skin damage that contributes to wrinkles and skin cancer. Applying a sport sunscreen 30 minutes before you head outside can minimize these risks, and drugstore.com makes it easy to purchase the protection you need. We have a wide selection of sport sunscreens with many SPF levels available.

What Is a Sport Sunscreen?

Sunscreen is used to protect the skin from ultraviolet B (UVB) energy, and broad-spectrum formulas offer protection from a second type of ultraviolet called UVA. Ordinary sunscreens often aren't suitable for people with active lifestyles because they can be diluted by sweat and washed away while swimming, leaving skin exposed to the sun.

Sport sunscreens are formulated to be more resistant to water and the effects of sweat. These products provide protection against harmful radiation while in the water or sweating, but still need to be reapplied regularly just like other, non-water-resistant sunscreens.

Focusing on the Right SPF Level

When you're searching for the right sport sunscreen to suit your skin, it's a good idea to begin by focusing on products with the perfect SPF level for your needs. The SPF level is a measure of how much of the UVB in sunlight a sunscreen can defend your skin from. Products with a lower SPF level allow a larger percentage of UVB to reach the skin. Most experts recommend products with a minimum SPF level of 15. You may want to choose a product with a higher SPF level to get additional protection.

Finding the Right Protection

Once you have narrowed your search to concentrate on products that offer your ideal SPF rating, you can compare their forms. Sport sunscreens are available as lotion, gel, cream, spray and stick formulations, giving you the freedom to choose the product that will be the easiest for you to apply and the most suitable for your skin type.
