Thanks to the powerful ‘Slip Slop Slap’ sunscreen campaign from the eighties, it’s been ingrained in our minds to stay protected whenever we’re heading outside with a hat, some clothing and sunscreen. But with so many sunscreens on the market promising different things, which one should you opt for? Follow this guide for picking the perfect product for your needs to up your defence against the sun this season.
If you… prefer invisible formulas
Mecca Cosmetica Sunbrella Invisible Superspray SPF 50+ is a transparent spritz that feels lightweight on skin, and offers up to four hours of water-resistant protection.
If you… are constantly on the go
A roll-on sunscreen, like Natio Broad Spectrum Roll-On Sunscreen SPF 50+, is what you need in your life. It easily fits in your handbag and is much more mess-free. To use, glide the product over your skin and rub it in using circular motions for an even coverage.
If you… have dry skin
Nivea’s new Protect & Moisture Moisturising Sunscreen Lotion SPF 50+ is genius; not only can it protect you from UVA and UVB rays, it’s also infused with vitamin E to keep your limbs and body hydrated even when you’re out in the sun.
If you… have sensitive skin
La Roche Posay Anthelios SPF 50+ Ultra-Light Spray features a non-comedogenic formula (one that doesn’t block pores) that is gentle and effective enough for those with sensitive skin.
