SPF ratings

Only a sunscreen with an SPF of 15 or higher can be labeled to say things like "reduces skin cancer risk" and "protects against early skin aging."

Broad-spectrum sunscreens

Sunscreens must protect equally against UVB (burning) and UVA (aging) rays to be labeled "broad spectrum."

Waterproof versus water resistant

Sunscreens can no longer be labeled "waterproof" or "sweatproof." "Sunscreens will either have no water-resistance label or will be labeled resistant for 40 or 80 minutes," Kauvar says. Most won’t be water resistant because moisturizers with SPF rub off easily.
