How to Pick the Right Sunscreen for Your Skin Type
With the kind of climate that we live in, applying sunscreen is a must before you leave your house as ultraviolet radiation (UV) exposure can damage your skin and cause premature ageing. But what if you don’t like those thick formulas that often leave a white cast and slide off your morning makeup? If you are looking for alternatives, here are 5 different types of sunscreen to suit your skincare needs.
For Normal to Combination Skin: Shiseido Clear Stick UV Protector
Packed with ingredients to prevent wrinkles and uneven skin tone, Shiseido’s Clear Stick UV Protector provides a water-resistant and sweat-proof layer of UV protection for easy touch-up. The best part is your makeup will still be intact.
For Dry Skin: This Works In Transit Skin Defence Spf45
This UV protective hydrator is a morning pick-me-up for thirsty skin. The nourishing Bio Boost Formula reinforces the lipid barrier in a natural manner, while the hyaluronic acid complements by replenishing moisture—making it light enough as a supple base for makeup application.
For Oily/Acne Prone Skin: Anthelios Anti-Imperfections Corrective Gel-Cream Spf50+
This skincare-meets-sunscreen formula by French dermatological skincare brand La Roche Posay is a remedy for those with troubled skin. The Salicylic Acid infused gel-cream helps prevent UV-induced marks and post-sun breakouts, and provides high broad-spectrum protection with a long-lasting mattifying effect.
For Sensitive Skin: Kiehls Super Fluid Daily UV Defense SPF 50+
This highly-raved non-comedogenic sunscreen is endorsed by multiple influencers because it has literally everything we can ask for. The advanced SPF 50+ broad spectrum and blend of natural Vitamin E and Scutellaria Root Extract help to neutralize skin-damaging free radicals and provide anti-ageing protection.
For Makeup Junkies: Supergoop! Defense Refresh Setting Mist SPF 50
This multi-purpose mist not only provides total sun protection, but also controls natural oil to keep your makeup nicely in place. Give it a few shakes before applying and you will feel revitalised throughout the day.
