Adding a SPF into your skincare routine is an essential especially in the summer months. This step is often looked over and skipped in most people’s routines especially here in the UK as we rarely have mega sunny days and when we do we forget to apply SPF to our faces. Not only do we need an SPF for sun protection it also protects our skin from pollution. We wanted to share with you some of our favourite products which include SPF so your skin can be protected without having to think about it!
Primers – for those makeup lovers, adding an SPF in your primer can be a great solution to adding your SPF into your routine. Not only will it protect your skin from the environmental factors it will also help to keep your makeup on all day. Dermalogica AGE Smart Skinperfect Primer SPF30 is our recommendation for this due to the high SPF factor and the additional benefits it offers. Smooth away fine lines, brighten and prime for flawless skin and to prep for make-up application. Velvety silicones create an instantly smooth surface. Neutral tint helps balance tone and enhance luminosity and radiance. SPF, primer and skin care all in 1!
Moisturisers- the easiest way to cooperate SPF into your routine as moisturiser is usually applied first thing in the morning then you are set up and protected for the day. The Murad Essential C Day Moisture SPF30 is a great energising moisturiser for the day time and has a great SPF factor which will prevent and protect your skin from damaging and ageing UV rays, free radical damage and dehydration with the Essential C Day Moisturiser.
Foundations, Tints, BB Creams- using your makeup base to add your SPF is a quick and easy way to protect your skin. As a light and moisturising base on a summer’s day we suggest the Decleor Hydra Floral Multi Protection BB Cream. This BB cream comes in 3 shades – light, medium and dark. A light coverage moisturiser providing a natural flawless finish to the skin. This BB cream also Protects against UVA/UVB rays with a SPF 15 and Protects against urban pollution.
For those of you who do prefer an actual SPF product and for it to be applied individually we suggest using the Dermalogica Solar Defense Booster SPF50 – Add critical UVA and UVB defense with this Broad Spectrum sunscreen for all skin conditions. Formulated without artificial fragrances and colours. A high SPF which can be applied after moisturiser as a protective base or mixed with your moisturiser, makeup base or anything other face product. When mixed with a moisturiser it reduces the SPF to 35 instead of 50.
