Jennifer Garner wouldn't go anywhere without sun protection.

The 42-year-old has worked with skincare brand Neutrogena for some time and is also an ambassador for the company's sun protection line.

She understands that some people have misconceptions about slathering themselves in suncream, but urges everyone to find a product that works for them.

"I love Neutrogena Ultra-Sheer Dry Touch because you can wear it under make-up, and it doesn't leave you feeling greasy and gross!" she enthused to

"The important thing to me is to have every possible kind of sunscreen available because you need different things at different times. I love Neutrogena Beach Defense, and I have the Wet Skin sunscreen around when we're playing outside in the sprinklers. I love to spray sunscreen on my face and body when I need to get it done quickly. My kids often prefer the face and body sticks, and I use Pure and Free Baby on them all the time. I have sunscreen everywhere! I never go anywhere without it."

The star has children Violet, eight, Seraphina, five, and two-year-old Samuel with her husband Ben Affleck. She knows it can be a struggle to get kids to wear suncream and advises parents to let them choose the kind they want to apply.

"Now that my kids are getting older, I'm starting to let them apply it themselves, but the key is that they have to do it every day. There can't be a day where if they're grumpy enough about it, I say, 'OK, forget it.' It's just part of the daily routine," she revealed.
