This Coral-Friendly Sunscreen Is a Summer Must-Have

( We don't need to tell you how important it is to swipe on some SPF this summer, especially if you're planning on hitting the beach—and who isn't? But did you know that some sunscreens actually wash off of your skin when you take a dip in the ocean and that their ingredients can be harmful to coral reefs? Don't worry, it's still possible to keep your skin safe in the water without harming our coral friends. Thankfully, we found you a sunblock that does both: Check out Kiehl's Activated Sun Protector.

This sunscreen contains broad spectrum SPF 50 PA+++, which means it protects you from both UVA and UVB rays and even prevents skin-aging. It's also water-resistant and sweat-proof, so you'll be safe from sun damage even when you're taking a dip or getting extra sweaty from the heat. It's made for both the face and the body, so you won't have to be carrying several different sunscreens when you hit the beach. Best part is that it's totally coral-friendly! No need to worry about harming any marine life while going for a swim.
