Do you know what is the main rule to prevent dark spots, signs of age and overall to achieve a good healthy skin? The use of a sunscreen! It should be a habit, even in the days when there is no sun (we don’t see it, but it is there). Your skin will thank you. You’re welcome!
If you never saw an image of the skin with and without UV protection, you should, it is a big open eyes!
Psssst…did you know?
If UVB are the main responsible por sunburn, UVA are for pigmentation, aging and carcinogenesis. I don’t know if you know, but there is an European law that stipulates that a sunscreen must have a UVA protection factor at least equal to one third of the UVB protection factor.
Because of that, and because we are currently in the middle of summer in Portugal, we are going to show you some of our favorite face sunscreens.
Isdin Fotoprotection Mineral 50+ Sunbrush
This powder is great to go on your bag and to apply at any time. The compact makes it easy to carry and the brush make it easy to use. The best is the fact that this is a powder, which is great for oily skin! Although it looks like it, the powder doesn’t add any color to the skin, don’t worry. It has a good SPF and it’s against UVA and UVB rays.
Nuxe Sun Melting Spray 50 SPF
This sunscreen can be used on face or body, it has a really good SPF and smells like summer. I tried it recently and it became right away one of my favorites. I have combo skin and when I apply this sunscreen my skin looks oily but after a couple of minutes it’s all absorbed and looks good, I can use it all the day and the skin looks great.
Too Faced Hangover Good to Go 25 SPF
You are probably wondering why I put a moisturizer in here, well because it has a SFP! I like to use this moisturizer in summer and it really works as a 2-in-1. I like to run on weekends and every time I apply this product my skin never gets red. I don’t advice this product if you have a strong oily skin but it’s acceptable for combo skin. Oh and the scent…coconut!!!!
Yves Rocher Elixir Jeunesse UV Beauty Shield 50 SPF
Well, obviously this is also an moisturizer that has as a main function protection of the skin against pollutants of the environment while acting as a shield against UVA and UVB rays. It’s also a product that I like to use when I go running and know that the sun is really strong kinda day or on as basis before makeup.
La Roche Posay Anthelios Sun Intolerance 50+
If you have sensitive skin, this is the sunscreen that you’ve been looking for! The texture and the fact that it’s so easy to blend is amazing. It never caused me breakouts and I use this product for years…it’s a brand that we both trust 100%.
Remember that you ALWAYS SHOULD apply sunscreen on the neck!
