Ladies and gentlemen, if I can offer you one piece of advice — that I once learned from a song — wear sunscreen. Over a decade later, that is still some of the greatest advice. The sun is out, and it's time to protect your skin from the harsh rays. Choosing the best, non-greasiest sunscreen will protect the largest organ on your body from serious signs of aging, not to mention the deadly "C" word — cancer. Read on for our top picks from the best sunscreen for your face, to what's best for your babes day out at the beach!

Protecting your face against the deadly rays of the sun is uber important. Neutrogena's Visibly Even Daily Moisturizer evens out skin's complexion while shielding it from unfriendly UV's. The line also offers a BB Cream if you're looking for a 2-in-1 with a tint. L'Oréal's Silky Sheer BB Face Lotion is a lightweight, water-resistant formula that goes on sheer and doesn't feel heavy. We also love Shiseido's Ultimate Sun Protection Cream for it's high SPF of 50, and it's specially formulated to protect your mug from burning and pre-mature aging.

Every momma wants the best sun protection for her baby bear, so we're including three of our top picks for your child. California Baby's Super Sensitive Sunscreen is water-resistant for up to 80 minutes, and is completely fragrance free. It's delicate formula works for both face and body and doesn't sting eyes.

It's easy peasy application stick makes life a bit less messy and it's also water-resistant and fragrance-free. Score.
