Approaches to skincare vary wildly but if there is one true consensus which runs between dermatologists, estheticians and skincare experts, it is that sunscreen is the one true essential.
The importance of SPF cannot be overstated. Sun exposure doesn’t just leave your skin vulnerable to long-term radiation damage and skin cancer, it also leads to dehydration, decreased elasticity, darkened acne scars and pigmentation which takes much longer to heal. Protecting your skin from the sun’s harmful rays is an absolute necessity if you want to keep the signs of ageing at bay and maintain a youthful glow. Most serums and treatments targeting pigmentation and skin tone will also only be truly effective if paired with a sufficiently protective sunscreen.
Sunscreen is a truly worthy investment in your skincare routine, and whether you are looking for a mineral sunblock for the face, which works by physically blocking the sun’s harmful rays, or a chemical UV absorbing sun cream, your search for the best sunscreen for your face starts here.
