Sunscreen is an important part of skin care canon. A good SPF is easy in theory, but finding one that you genuinely are satisfied with can be somewhat of a Goldilocks challenge in practice. (This one’s too sticky, this one’s too chalky, this one smells like the time I was stalking my ex’s wife on Instagram and liked an old photo from three years ago) If you’re looking for something that will protect your complexion from UV rays and also help soothe inflammation, Coola Mineral Face SPF30 Matte Cucumber Lotion ($41) is just what you need.

Unfortunately, matte finishes are out of stock at the moment. Cucumber-infused sunscreen from Coola offers the same free-radical-fighting active ingredients:

Rather than being heavy or tacky, the formula feels like a lightweight lotion rather than a sunscreen. In addition, it is fast absorbing and doesn’t cause skin to become oily. There is no chemical added to this sunscreen, which means it forms a physical barrier against the sun’s harmful rays with ingredients like zinc oxide and titanium dioxide. You can also use mineral sunscreen to protect yourself from the blue light from your computer, so this is a great choice even on days when you aren’t going outside. Many face sunscreens make your makeup look patchy and goopy when you apply it over them, but this one wears almost like a primer, blending over foundation effortlessly, and not leaving a greasy residue behind.

In addition to its ease of use, this sunscreen stands out due to its cucumber extract, which is both antioxidant and anti-inflammatory. Free radicals (aka the skin-damaging molecules that come from environmental aggressors, like pollution and the sun) can cause discoloration, sun spots, and wrinkles if they are not fended off with antioxidants. You can prevent some of these problems before they begin by using a sunscreen that’s rich in antioxidants, like this one. Plus, since the formula contains a powerful anti-inflammatory component, it can also calm angry skin and help combat inflammatory acne. You won’t have to think twice about wearing SPF every day when you have this stuff in your purse.
