Face Sunscreens

Our selection of sunscreens for your face will help shield your skin from all types of harmful UV rays. We’ve also included a shield that will help protect your skin against pollution.

With global warming, protecting your skin from the sun’s rays is getting increasingly essential. As the skin on your face is delicate, it requires extra protection from the sun. Wearing a specialist SPF face sunscreen helps protect your skin against the UVB and UVA rays of the sun which cause sunburn, inflammation, painful redness as well as skin cancer. Moreover, applying a SPF face sun cream every day can help prevent pigmentation, dryness of the skin, premature ageing of the skin: wrinkles and fine lines appearing on your face and helps your skin stay healthy and youthful for longer.

Body Sunscreen vs Face Sunscreen
You can can use the sunscreen you apply on your body to your face but it is recommended that you use specialist sunscreen for your face. Like facial moisturisers, face sunscreens tend to be formulated with different ingredients that are more gentle on the skin and are better for delicate areas like your under eyes and for sensitive skin. Moreover, face sunscreens are formulated especially for different skin types – dry, oily or combination.

Which SPF to Choose?
SPF (Sun Protection Factor) is a measure of how well a sunscreen will protect skin from UVB rays, the kind of ultraviolet radiation that causes sunburn, damages skin and can cause skin cancer. A higher SPF doesn’t necessarily mean better protection from sun damage.

  • SPF 15 sunscreen – blocks 93% of UVB radiation from reaching your skin.
  • SPF 30 sunscreen – blocks 97% of UVB rays
  • SPF 50 sunscreen – blocks 98% of UVB rays
  • SPF 100 sunscreen – blocks 99% of UVB rays (skincancer.org)

When out and about, face sunscreens need to be regularly reapplied and particularly after swimming, towel drying or perspiring.

Use a specialist SPF sunscreen for your face to ensure that your skin stays healthy.
