Spring sunshine

Whether you’re faking it or baking in it, prepare for a sunny season with the latest sun-kissed products… 

 Dermalogica’s new, multitasking Prisma Protect SPF30 works with your skin’s daytime defence mode to provide broad spectrum SPF30 protection, boost skin’s natural luminosity, deliver lasting hydration and block 85 per cent of pollutants. Prisma Protect SPF30 is formulated to convert visible light into increased skin luminosity with antioxidant benefits: intelligent drone technology targeted capsules deliver a photosensitive ingredient to the skin; advanced moisture magnets provide all-day hydration for a visibly smooth complexion; and matcha tea neutralises free radicals and helps to defend skin.

With three benefits in one formula (and three shades available to choose from), Dermalogica’s Sheer Tint Medium SPF20 contains hydrolysed pearl amino acids and cross-linked hyaluronic acid to help improve skin texture and reduce the appearance of fine dehydration lines, physical and chemical sunscreens to provide invisible, broad spectrum UVA and UVB defense and natural light-diffusing iron oxides to help balance skin tone and impart a sheer, luminous glow.

If you’re looking for a medium protection, non-greasy cream to safely protect the face from sun exposure, Decleor’s Protective Anti Wrinkle Cream for Face SPF30 offers double protection with a DNA Protection Complex and UVA/UVB filters. It acts on the skin to help prevent premature ageing by boosting skin’s natural defences, protecting cell DNA, combating the signs of ageing and reducing wrinkles and fine lines. It also works hard to reduce cutaneous reactions caused by sun exposure. Suitable for all skin types, it offers protection so you can safely develop a natural and long-lasting springtime tan.

For a lightweight, broad-spectrum physical barrier, Elemis Liquid Layer SPF30 provides a first line of defence against sun damage and premature skin ageing. Formulated with mineral titanium dioxide, this Elemis sunblock provides water resistant SPF30 protection against UVA, UVB rays and pollution. Its polymeric spheres diffuse and redirect UV light preventing harsh, multiple assaults from the environment.

Medik8’s Physical Sunscreen works by reflecting the sun’s radiation away from the skin. Fast absorbing and rich in natural antioxidants, it is light enough for everyday use and strong enough to defend against all signs of photo ageing. Perfect for daily protection, the advanced formula glides over the skin without leaving a chalky residue, and this innovative sunscreen is reinforced with anti-pollution, anti-infrared and anti-A.G.E. technologies to shield skin from environmental aggressors whilst also preventing fine lines and wrinkles.

A daily gradual tanning lotion, Fake Bake’s Amplify works to boost a natural tan whilst gradually building a beautiful golden self-tan. A multipurpose skin enhancing lotion with a unique formula, Amplify intensifies the colour and life of your tan using added tanning actives to help create a streak-free, golden glow, with a natural plant-based agent to optimise and boost your skin’s natural tanning process (by encouraging melanin production). Moisturising and illuminating, it also helps to perfect skin by creating a luxuriously radiant, smoother, more youthful appearance. This lightweight, non-greasy formula dries quickly and invisibly on the skin and does not clog pores.

St Tropez’s original in shower tan is now available in a darker shade: in just three minutes, as part of your daily regime, Gradual Tan In Shower Lotion Medium is a convenient way to build a sun-kissed, gradual glow – and enjoy up to 24-hours ultra-hydrating moisturisation. A new tanning active blend, with melanin technology, allows for a deeper natural tan, and jojoba aids faster development for an initial, natural glow followed by a healthy looking tan after just three days. Easy to apply, the luxurious lather guides application, and you’ll also notice an even fade. The UK’s first self-tan product to use water for promoting a gradual tan, this unique streak-free formulation activates on clean, wet skin, in three minutes flat, without the fuss and time traditionally associated with tanning – your sensational spring glow starts right here!
