Which Sunscreen Is Best For Your Face?

If you aren’t obsessed with SPF then you should be because it’s your new anti-aging secret and one of the most important steps of your morning skincare routine. It’s known for preventing premature aging, stopping sun spots in their tracks and actively decreasing your risk of skin cancer when worn daily.

If you’ve been wondering what the best sunscreen for your face is, we’ve developed a guide to help you choose the best SPF formula for your skin type. 

Why SPF For Your Face Matters

You might think SPF for your face can be skipped over, I mean it feels greasy and blocks your pores right? Wrong! You’ve probably been using the wrong formula if sunscreen leaves your skin feeling that way. 

You might not realise it but 80% of UV light can travel through clouds no matter what the weather is so even if you don’t have a family history of skin cancer or live somewhere that sees sunshine 365 days a year, wearing sunscreen on your face daily is crucial. Regardless of your skin type or the season, clean sunscreen can actively protect your skin from harmful UV rays, safeguard your skin against visible signs of ageing, reduce uneven skin tones and contribute to the overall health of your skin. 

How to Choose The Right Sunscreen for Your Skin Type

Most people don’t actually know what sunscreen is right for their skin type so they end up choosing a formula that doesn’t look or feel right for their skin. That’s why we’ve developed a range of weightless SPF 50+ face, neck and décolletage sunscreens that suit all skin types whether you’re layering under makeup or wearing for daily anti-ageing protection.

What’s The Best Sunscreen To Wear Under Makeup?

If you’re thinking about adding an anti-ageing step to your skincare ritual, you can’t go past Sun Skills For HER. With a fast-absorbing formula that dries with a clean finish, you can wear this SPF daily without worrying about chemical-induced breakouts or that white cast. We guarantee that your skin will thank you for this weightless, silky-smooth and moisturising sunscreen that leaves you with a naturally fresh glow. 

Enriched with native Kakadu plum to protect your skin against free radicals, it’s perfect for all skin types especially if you’re layering under makeup. Choosing a face sunscreen that you apply after your serums and moisturiser is a better option than relying solely on your makeup with only a small SPF element. Makeup isn’t always applied evenly, often rubs off easily and isn’t normally applied to places that need it most like your ears and décolletage. 

Sunscreen for Sensitive Skin

When choosing a sunscreen for sensitive skin it’s important to look for an SPF that’s either suitable for all skin types or for sensitive skin specifically.

Skipping sunscreen because you have acne-prone skin isn’t going to cut it with us, especially when sun protection can actually help your breakouts. Think about it, when you get a sunburn your skin then becomes red and inflamed right? This means any acne you have already may look worse and even cause scarring. This is where a sensitive non-comedogenic SPF comes in, Sun Skills For SENSITIVE dries with a natural finish that balances your skincare ritual without clogging pores or irritating skin. 

Sunscreen For Dry Skin

If you have dry skin and don’t know where to start with facial SPF then it’s important that you check your products for nourishing and hydrating ingredients. Any clean skincare products that add additional moisture to your skin are beneficial, especially as sun damage can be extra harsh on dry skin. 

Two superior ingredients that you should be looking out for in your daily sunscreen are hyaluronic acid and aloe vera. Hyaluronic acid improves your skin’s natural moisturising factors while aloe vera encourages skin cell regeneration and is packed with anti-inflammatory properties.
