It's best to avoid sunscreens containing the chemicals oxybenzone and retinyl palminate. Use a sunscreen with a minimum of SPF 15 and a maximum of SPF 50, and make sure labels list UVA and UVB (or broad spectrum protection).
Remember to apply at least 2 ounces of lotion (about a shot glass full) and reapply often.
AND, remember that the best protection from the sun is not letting it's rays touch the skin. Hats, clothing, umbrellas, tents, and shades limit sun exposure beyond what's needed for a good dose of Vitamin D and a nice tan!
