Women Who Golf Favorite Face Sunscreens

By Tuscany Williams

Sunscreens questions are a popular topic on the Women Who Golf website. There have been a lot of good suggestions from the members about what is best for golf.   To make the choice easy, we compiled a list of eight favourite sunscreens for women golfers. All of these are available on Amazon, ready for you to add to your golf bag!

Please remember, that these sunscreens should be used in addition to hats and protective clothing. Wearing any of them doesn’t excuse you from spending time in the shade, since no sunscreen can completely prevent sun damage.

Best Overall

SPF 46 | Mineral | Lightweight lotion

EltaMD Uv Clear Broad Spectrum has been mentioned again and again as a favourite for both the golf course and every day. Members love it as it doesn’t feel greasy, it’s lightweight, won’t clog pores, is fragrance-free and is non-comedogenic. Reviews say that the formula absorbs quickly and offers an invisible finish. I also saw there is a tinted version as well if you prefer a makeup-no makeup look.
