Protecting your skin is crucial all year long, but it’s especially important during the summer when you’re spending more time outside. But that doesn’t mean that you can’t (safely) still get a summertime glow.

Besides incorporating a quality self-tanner into your beauty routine, consider bringing a shimmering SPF oil along on your next trip to the beach! While regular sunscreen is a great option, several brands have come out with SPF formulations that contain a little sparkle.

But don’t worry, you won’t end up looking like you’ve coated yourself in glitter. These sunscreens are lightweight and leave you shining in the best way. Below, get the scoop on four shimmering SPFs that deserve a place in your beach bag.
