Among the many things we've learned in skincare over the last few years, perhaps the most notable is that sunscreen does actually have a purpose beyond the beach or pool. In fact, as recommended by dermatologists, sunscreen is actually meant for daily use as it helps to protect your skin from the harsh rays of the sun — whether it be rain or shine, indoors or outdoors.

But when it comes to adding yet another product into our skincare routines, it's important that any solution is effective yet gentle enough for even the most sensitive skin types. Fortunately, with the wide array of cult-favorite and indie beauty brands, there are plenty of facial sunscreen options with skin-friendly ingredients to shop (and love) for spring and beyond.

A few standout sunscreens to incorporate into your summer skincare routine include Aveeno's affordable mineral sunscreen, cult-favorite Supergoop! Everyday Lotion, and EltaMD's Clear Broad-Spectrum SPF that's a must-have for Hailey Bieber.

Below, find the best sunscreens for sensitive skin — with formulas from premier beauty brands such as Innisfree, La Roche-Posay, Avene and more.
