Say sayonara to sunburn
So you may have noticed by now that we love sunscreen. Yes, this magical sun protection cream/spray/stick/roll-on that we constantly tell you to wear everyday would most definitely be on our ‘3 desert island essentials’ list. In fact, if it weren’t for our other two desert island must-haves (water and a spear for catching fish) we’d probably insist that your list be made up of one product from each of the following…
Top sunscreens for lips
Dry, chapped lips are not only a winter problem; fail to protect them from the harsh summer sun and they can become sunburnt, sore or even blistered. But lips need nourishment as well as protection, so lip balms that moisturise and provide SPF are best. Carry an SPF lip balm in your handbag at all times for frequent boosts of hydration and sun protection.
Top sunscreens for face
The skin on your face generally tends to be more delicate and sensitive than that on the rest of your body and it’s also constantly exposed so keeping it protected as well as nourished is of the utmost importance. To ensure you’re protecting your face from sunburn as well as premature ageing, choose a sunscreen with a high SPF and broad-spectrum protection (which wards off both UVB and UVA rays). Sunscreen that sweats into your eyes also doesn’t feel too nice, so a non-greasy or sweat-resistance formula needs to be high on your checklist, too.
Top sunscreens for body
When it comes to suncare, your body is the one part of you that suffers the most from slapdash sunscreen application. To minimise the chances of streaky application and missed spots, choose sunscreens that can be applied and spread easily so you have a higher chance of covering all those hard to reach places. A high SPF is also a must, especially on areas like the chest, back and upper thighs that don’t usually see as much sun as your arms and legs. If you’re planning on going near the water at all, make sure to use a sunscreen that is water resistant and allow enough time for it to absorb before jumping in.
