Working your butt off to attain the ultimate "summer bod" is hard enough without worrying about the multitude of skin woes that impact what SPF protection you should choose. We’re here to lift that weight off your shoulders! Scroll down to find which SPF sunscreen is best for targeting your primary skin concern and shop our edits below to avoid the burn this summer...
Oily & Acne Prone Skin: Don’t let this put you off from providing yourself with adequate SPF protection. For those who manage acne prone skin with enlarged pores, it may seem daunting to add yet another product to your summer skincare regimen but products such as Neutrogena Clear Face Sunscreen Lotion SPF55 are non-comedogenic, PABA free, oil free, fragrance free, waterproof AND offers UVA/UVB protection. It’s also suitable for use on the body! Other suitable SPF protection products for pimple sufferers include Shiseido Sun Protection Oil Free Spray and Vichy Ideal Capital Soleil.
Dry & Sensitive Skin: Dry, flaky and sensitive skin makes the best of us want to slap on as much product as possible in the hope our faces absorb whatever moisture it can without causing a redness flare up. But it's QUALITY, not quantity we should be concerned about. Clinique’s Broad Spectrum SPF 50 Mineral Sunscreen Fluid is suitable for all skin tones, is oil free and suitable for use on the sensitive eye area. Ultrasun SPF50 Extreme Sun Lotion and French pharmaceutical brand Bioderma’s Photoderm Bronz High Protection Sun Fluid in SPF30 are great choices too.
Sun Protection For Swimming: If you’re more concerned about how to keep your skin shielded from sunburn while you’re taking a dip in the pool or actively engaged in water sports, opt for Juice Beauty’s SPF30 Sunscreen (water resistant for 80 minutes) or Sisley Paris Tinted Sunscreen Cream SPF30 (water resistant for 40 minutes).
