    Sunscreen oils come as sprays and are an alternative to lotions. It’s best not to use them on children, however, because inhalation can make respiratory conditions like asthma worse. Sunscreen sprays range from SPF 15 to SPF 100. It’s best to avoid sunscreens containing allergy-producing substances such as PABA, and ingredients that aren’t environmentally friendly like parabens. Other sunscreen oils contain natural oils like coconut oil and plant extracts to be gentler on your skin and to the environment. Some sprays absorb quickly while others take a bit of time, but none should leave a sticky feeling. Sunscreen oils can come in small bottles that are easy to carry around. If you’ll be swimming, make sure to choose a sunscreen oil that’s waterproof.
