The Best SPF For You
We all know by now, that wearing a face SPF every day is key to healthy and youthful looking skin.
The sun’s UVA and UVB rays are super harmful on our skin, and lead to premature ageing of the skin, decreased collagen and elasticity of the skin, fine lines, pigmentation, and an increased risk of health issues.
Many people skip the step of SPF as they feel as though it clogs their pores and leaves a white flashback in flash photography. Luckily for us, there are now so many amazing SPF products on the market without these issues.
Look for formulas that have both UVA and UVB protection, and we always recommend an SPF of at least 30.
Here are some of our SPF recommendations for your specific skin type:
SQUALANE + ZINC SHEER MINERAL SUNSCREEN
This lightweight, deeply hydrating clean sunscreen lotion blends in for all skin tones fast without leaving a trace. It calms and cools sun-stressed skin and leaves absolutely everyone with a soft, dewy finish and with a protection of SPF30
SUPERGOOP CITY SERUM SPF30
Swap your heavy-duty moisturizer for a light and airy SPF. Supergoop!, one of the beauty industry's leading sun brands, now offers UV protection in the form of a serum. It's infused with key ingredients like lactic acid and vitamin E to protect against environmental stressors and keep your complexion nice and supple all throughout the day!
LA ROCHE-POSAY ANTHELIOS ULTRA-LIGHT INVISIBLE FLUID SPF50
This mineral sunscreen was developed especially for sensitive skin, and it shows. There’s absolutely no stinging or irritation on application, even around the eyes or eczema irritated skin. The thin, milky fluid is lovely for anyone who experiences prickly heat in the sun or finds that thicker creams exacerbate heat rashes. Even when applied in a rush – as is often the case for us when getting ready to leave the house – it left absolutely zero residue.
MEDIK8 ADVANCED DAY TOTAL PROTECT SPF30
This power-packed formula combines hydration, sun protection and anti-ageing. Defending your skin against environmental aggressors, this cream protects the skin from blue light, infrared and UV rays. With a beautifully creamy consistency, the formula is lightweight and fast-absorbing, and it isn’t thick or oily. Packed full of hydration, this SPF helps to plump skin, reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
