Upgrade your skincare game this spring...

Your skin is now at its most sensitive to the sun so it's the best time of year to brush up on your sun smart skills ahead of another long, hot, gorgeous summer.

Whether you're hitting the waves with the kids, indulging in a long lunch with girlfriends or entertaining the family with a backyard barbeque; it's so important to remember to protect your skin. Here's a rundown of our favourite products for the season of sun, sand and surf!

I scream, you scream, we all scream for sunscreen!

Look, it mightn't be as cool as a double-scoop cone on a hot day, but it's the first step to protecting your body from those harsh UV rays. When spring hits, sunscreen is arguably the most important step in your morning routine, so here are our top picks...

SURF LIFE SAVING AUSTRALIA Sunscreen Despicable Me With a fun minion bottle the kids will love, this SPF50+ range is available at Priceline Pharmacy from just $8.99.

DERMALOGICA Super Sensitive Shield This high-performing formulation has been created specifically for sensitive skin and offers a calming, soothing effect. Visit David Jones today to select from the Dermalogica range starting at $76.50.

Up the ante on your slip, slip, slap routine...

If you're looking for instant sun protection, you can't go past zinc.

Zinc Sticks If your mind immediately short-tracks to those neon zinc sticks that painted your childhood shades of fluro pink and yellow and your thinking "Oh yeah, totally rad!" then swing by Terry White Chemmart and check out their range of classics.

Invisible Zinc Waterproof Sunscreen If you're looking for a product that packs the protective punch of zinc but looks a little (or a lot!) more natural, then the Invisible Zinc range could be your new best friend. Get into Woolworths to select from the collection starting from as little as $25.

Now, with your skin protected from the blistering Aussie sun, it's time to live it up this spring!
