We Asked Over 1,500 Women About Their Sun-Care Habits—Here’s What We Learned
To find out, we teamed up with Australian Gold to ask Well+Good readers to tell us about their sun-care habits—and they had a lot to say.
Though 71 percent of readers said sun care is very important to them (yay for protecting your skin!), just 25 percent don't leave their houses without SPF on. Nearly half wear it every day, but only on their faces (clearly complexion is a priority here), and three percent of readers admitted to never wearing SPF (respect for the honesty).
Moral of the story: We're all doing our best here. And even if we don't nail the sun-care game every day, nearly all of us (83 percent to be exact) are interested in learning more about how to best take care of our skin while still getting our daily dose of vitamin D. To help on that front, we did some research to answer a few of our readers' FAQs.

SWB: Sunscreen With Benefits
If you had to choose between SPF and SPF with skin-care benefits, which would you choose? We’d guess the latter. In addition to titanium dioxide and zinc oxide to protect skin from the sun, Australian Gold Botanical sunscreen contains kakadu plum (to promote collagen production), eucalyptus (to calm skin), and red algae (for vitamin A and amino acids) to really put the “care” in sun care.

Outdoor workouts sound great in theory, until you end up with sunscreen in your eyes courtesy of your sweat sesh. Not so in the case of Australian Gold Extreme Sport sunscreen, though, which is sweat- and water-resistant and reef-friendly. Plus, Ultra Chill technology paired with the coastal-breeze scent keeps you cool and smelling fresh whenever you break a sweat.
