Keeping skin protected in the sun is an absolute must but as well as buying a sun cream that provides long-lasting coverage, it's also important to find a product which suits your skin. After all, no one wants to resort to a lotion or spray that brings you out in a rash.

Although some sun creams can aggravate skin problems and allergies, many brands have addressed this issue by launching products especially made for sensitive skin types. Even better, they all come with a high SPF and include soothing ingredients like aloe vera and beeswax.

Want to know where to shop sun creams for delicate skin? From organic brand Green People to high street favourites like Biz Buin, take a look at our shopping guide above and don't forget these important tips for staying safe in the sun:

- Choose broad-spectrum sunscreens which will protect against both UVA and UVB rays.

- Is your suncream past its sell-by date? If it's three years old, it's time to chuck it.

- Try and avoid sitting in the sun during the middle of the day. This is when the sun is at its strongest.

- Reapply your suncream after swimming - even if it's waterproof.
