THE CHOSEN FEW: Anti-ageing Facial Sunblocks
If you want something gentler, finer than your average sunblock and are concerned about the ageing effects of UV exposure (read: you don’t want your skin resembling a leathery old handbag), these four sunblocks tick all boxes and still look good under your make up.
1. Estee Lauder DayWear UV Base SPF50
Sheer, lightweight, gorgeous on: everything we’ve come to expect from the DayWear range. A beauty and sun protection staple, this little gem is bursting with anti-oxidants and vitamins that help fight the appearance of free radical damage.
2. Clarins UV Plus Day Screen Multi-Protection SPF 50
This matte, lightweight texture is a million miles away from the greasy, sticky formula renowned of some sunblocks – plus it fights all nasties such as free radials and sunspots. Can be worn over your regular day cream and makes a decent primer.
3. Kiehl’s Super Fluid UV Defense SPF 50+
If you hate the feel of sunscreen on your face, this is the answer. An oil-free (albeit slightly watery consistency), non-stinging formula that provides long lasting protection against UVA and UVB rays. Water-resistant, too.
4. Clinique Super City Block Oil-Free Daily Face Protector SPF 25
Best for normal to dry or sensitive skin. This matte lotion is oil free but moist and gentle enough to let you skip the day cream. A solid choice at a decent price.
