SPF That Works | Face & Body

There’s been a lot of talk about SPF lately. I think it’s fair to say we all know the importance of protecting our skin against UV damage, and the damages it can cause.  This can be done in a multitude of ways, but the most effective way of preventing sun damage is using a decent amount of SPF. SPF can come in all shapes and forms (and by this, I mean quantities and measures.) 

The key to finding a SPF that works for you is to start with your own beauty regime. If you apply a moisturizer in the morning, does it have SPF? Does your foundation / tinted moisturizer have SPF in it? If you live somewhere where there’s more sunshine than rain, I’d highly recommend using a product that has SPF within it to avoid layers of products going on your skin. The Clarins UV Plus SPF 50 is a great base to use before your foundation, it not only provides SPF but ensures your skin is clear of pollution and daily harms. Clinique's SPF 30 cream is a great face cream that feels extremely lightweight and blends into the skin. If you're looking for a good base with SPF, I'd go for the the Nars Velvet Skin Tint, with a decent SPF 30 to go along with it. 

When you’re packing for a holiday away in the sunshine, taking SPF is incredibly important. Opt for one with 30+ for your body and face as this will give you a decent amount of coverage. The Darphin SPF30 Soleil Plaisir is great – it lasts on the skin and you don’t need to reapply as often as others. If you're going to be in the pool and the sea, go for a waterproof formula that will last throughout the day. I recommend the Lancaster Sun Sport SPF 50, which is great as it stays on throughout the day no matter how much you're splashing around.  Lancaster are a great brand so I'd definitely look into them if you're looking for SPF. 

What are your favourite SPF's? Have you used any of these? Let me know if you give these a go. A xx
