It’s (FINALLY!) getting to that time of year when we need to start thinking about stronger sun protection for your whole body. Using a moisturiser or foundation with an SPF all year round is obviously advisable, but as our clothing gets smaller the area which needs sun protection gets bigger! There are some great options available from Dermalogica and Decleor, and we thought we’d take a look at which ones are right for you.
If you’re the sort of person to play a lot of sports, you’ll need to think about a good all-round sun lotion which will stand up to sweat and friction. Dermalogica Protection 50 Sport SPF50 is a high protection, water-resistant, broad-spectrum lotion which will stay put, even after the most rigorous workout and will even keep your skin moisturised after sweat-loss.
If you have mature skin then you’ll want a sun lotion which not only protects your skin to a high level, but also one which is gentle enough for sensitive, delicate skin. Decleor Ultra Protective Hydrating Milk SPF50 Body was specially designed for sensitive, fragile and mature skin in need of extra protection. It offers ultimate protection by boosting the skins natural defences and even protects cell DNA from damage.
If you have skin which is highly sensitive, it can be really tricky to find a sun lotion without chemicals which doesn’t irritate things even further depsite needing that added protection. Dermalogica Super Sensitive Shield SPF30 is part of the Ultra Calming range, designed precisely for people in this predicament, and is completely chemical-free, allowing you to protect yourself from the sun without exacerbating existing skin conditions.
If you’d rather use a tinted sunscreen than pile several different products onto your face during hot weather, then Dermalogica Ultra Sensitive Tint SPF30 is a really good option. It offers full coverage as a broad-spectrum sun lotion and is infused with earth minerals to give a light tint, without irritating your face or the use of harsh chemicals.
When you’re on holiday, you’ll no doubt want to look your best whether you’re hitting a Carribean beach, lounging outside some chic cafe in a European city or exploring the decks of a cruise ship and Dermalogica Solar Defence Booster SPF50 is perfect for all of those occasions. It can be added to your existing foundation or moisturiser and offers critical UVA and UVB Broad Spectrum sunscreen defence. The highly-scientific formula helps to smooth your skin while it protects and actively protects against environmental factors which may damage the skin.
