By now you should know just how important it is to protect your skin from the sun — no matter the weather. That's because the best defense against aging and sun damage is a solid, broad-spectrum sunscreen to protect against harmful UVA and UVB rays. But it can be difficult to remember to apply sunscreen on the days you're not basking by the pool or hiking a sunny trail. We have the solution: everyday moisturizer with SPF baked right in.

When consumers test products, they let us know key information like how easy a moisturizer is to apply, how it smells, and how well it absorbs. By taking into account past tests on face moisturizers and top-tested products, as well as beauty expert and editor favorites, GH Seal Stars and online best-sellers, we found the best moisturizers for acne-prone and oily skin:.
