10 best sunscreens to stay away from UV rays all season


Summer is finally here, and even when things have not yet returned to normal, we are definitely spending more time exposed to UV rays – inside and outside of our homes. Wearing sunscreen every day of the year is a must, even when you stay indoors! The only question you need to ask yourself if you are at home and wondering if you should apply sunscreen or not is: do I have windows? If you do, then the answer is yes! You do not know where to start? Here are some of our favorite options to keep handy this summer!
