beauty insider: THE BEST SUNSCREEN FOR YOU

FINDING THE RIGHT SUNSCREEN FORMULA IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN GLOWING SKIN AND SKIN BURSTING WITH BLEMISHES.
Here are our expert sunscreen shopping secrets…


* Have a skin analysis the start of the season to find out what SPF suits your skin. The conditions of skin changes from summer to winter, so does your SPF needs.

* Wear the right formula. For everyday, you’ll want a light lotion or gel that won’t interfere with your makeup. For the beach, use a waterproof formula, which will resist water and sweat.

* Pick a sensible SPF. Higher SPF’s don’t give you better protection. They just allow you to be out in the sun longer without burning. Usually when you’re spending extended time out in the sun, SPF 15 is fine. But on beach days, choose 30 and remember to reapply every two hours.

* Go for a broad-spectrum protection. To avoid burning and wrinkling, use a product that blocks both UVA and UVB rays.

* If you have sensitive skin: Look for sunscreens with physical, rather than chemical, blockers, such as titanium dioxide (which protects against both UVA and UVB rays).

* Supplement your SPF. Smooth on a vitamin C serum after being in the sun to help fight free-radical damage.

* Invest in regular facials. When using chemical SPF’s you need to constantly restore hydration and deep cleanse to stop pores blocking and skin becoming congested.
