Sunscreen sticks are a favorite way to protect against the sun’s harmful UV rays for their convenience and portability. Throw one in a bag or use the quick application method of a few quick swipes on a struggling little one who hates the feel of lotion stay safe as you play in the great outdoors. Sunscreen sticks tend to be lighter and more comfortable on the skin, but still pack a powerful, protective punch to help prevent sunburns. Many are safe for sensitive skin, and won’t clog pores. Some also contain zinc, which will leave a white residue where applied, but deliver optimal sun protection. Some people only use this on areas that tend to burn easily, like the nose, ears, and scalp.
