What Kind of Sunblock Do the Half-Naked Hollister Boys on Broadway Wear? We Found Out. Your Summer Sunblock Guide.
Love 'em or hate 'em, if you're passing through SoHo, the spectacle of the Hollister greeters on Broadway is hard to miss. They wear neon board shorts, sunblock on their noses, flip flops, and, well, that's about it. So when we were thinking about what kind of sunblock to invest in for the summer, we figured the sunblock the boys of Hollister use was a good place to start. They stand outside in the glaring sun for six hour shifts, so whatever they're slathering on their precious noses better be good. And if white zinc--the Hollister sunblock of choice--isn't your thing (and we're betting it isn't), we consulted Angelique Serrano, Beauty Editor at Allure, for the best sunscreens.
