Newsflash: You need to wear sunscreen all day, every day. That non-negotiable skincare rule is especially important during your outdoor summer workouts. Still, no one wants sunscreen dripping into (and stinging) their eyes during a long run or intense beach volleyball game, so we’ve rounded up six options that will stay in place—and keep you protected from the sun—no matter how sweaty you get. Plus, that also means you can use any of these bad boys before you hit the studio, without ever having to worry about them coming off while you ride or pulse. Check out our favorite sweatproof ray bans below.

  1. Skinceuticals Sport UV Defense SPF 50

A creamy, mineral-based option (that was tested on marathon-runners, FYI), this rubs in as nicely as any moisturizer, and works on either face or body. The tube is also just small enough to meet TSA carry-on requirements, making it the perfect option for summer travel.

  1. Shiseido Sports BB Broad Spectrum SPF50+ with WetForce Technology

Swap your standard complexion perfector for this pick, which contains an exclusive technology that helps it adhere to skin (and not come off) even during hardcore workouts. It’s tinted too, making it the perfect multi-tasker to pop in your gym bag.

  1. Hawaiian Tropic Island Sport Clear Spray Sunscreen SPF 50

True to its name, this easy-to-apply mist goes on completely clear and absorbs instantly, making ideal when you need sun protection, stat. We especially like this spray for larger areas, like arms and legs; just make sure to rub it in so that your skin is completely shielded.

  1. Juice Beauty SPF 30 Sport Sunscreen

This mineral ‘screen may go on a bit thick, but quickly blends right in, leaving no residue behind. Organic coconut and jojoba oils hydrate, while aloe juice soothes and nourishes skin.

  1. Coola Mineral Sport Sunscreen Stick SPF 50

Swipe and go with this stick, no mirror required. The zinc oxide formula is choice for sensitive complexions, and contains added antioxidants to counteract skin-damaging free radicals. Also nice: It comes in both tinted and untinted versions.

  1. Neutrogena Sport Face Oil-Free Lotion Sunscreen Lotion Broad Spectrum SPF70+

If you’re worried about sunscreen causing breakouts, choose this oil-free, non-comedogenic (AKA non pore-clogging) shield. Water- and sweat-resistant for up to 80 minutes, it also stands up to rubbing and wiping.
