SPF Three Ways: Face, Body & After Sun
SPF for your face
Protecting your face from the sun has a number of benefits. The biggest? Using an SPF helps prevent the signs of aging. And finding a sun cream suited for the delicate skin on your face is just as important. We love Dermalogica's Invisible Physical Defense SPF 30 (£49) – it's a weightless, all-physical sunscreen that blends easily on all skin tones, helps defend against UVA/UVB and blue light, and soothes all skin types. The bio-active mushroom complex helps soothe skin, and reduce UV-induced redness and dryness, and the green tea helps defend skin against free radical damage.
SPF for your body
Looking for a full body sun cream? We suggest opting for anything from Clarins. (Their factor 50 SPF range is our go-to). What makes their SPF great – besides its delicious smell – is that it comes in a variety of textures. The Sun Care Gel-To-Oil for Body SPF 50 (£22) is great for setting your base sun cream; the Sun Care Water Mist SPF 50 (£22) works well for topping up your SPF after sweating or swimming; and the Sun Care Stick SPF 50 (£19) is perfect for on-the-go application or for reapplying to targeted areas like hands, feet and nose.
That inevitable sun burn happens every year, just after that first burst of prolonged sunshine. Preventing it with the application of sun cream is essential. But, it happens, and to soothe our aching skin, we turn to COOLA's ER+ Radical Recovery After Sun Lotion (£30). Like a wheatgrass shot for your skin, their after sun lotion delivers powerful antioxidants and nourishing, soothing ingredients that help skin bounce-back after a day in the sun.
