SPF recommendation...


So I have looked into some affordable but good drug store branded spf which you can use as your daily moisturise. These ones are 30 spf which is the recommended amount for daily use. So now you know you don't just use spf during summer but during winter and cold weather too. Our skin needs that protection. I have selected a few that have 4-5 star rating plus good reviews. One thing about spf I find that they always leave that greasy or white strike finish. I personally don't mind that however I know some of your ladies don't want that so best to go in store and sample them.

Hope this helps. Keep an eye out for offers.

The Ordinary Mineral UV Filters SPF30 with Antioxidants 50ml
Retail price: £8.90

The Ordinary range of Mineral UV Filters formulas’ offer SPF protection along with antioxidant, hydration, and anti-irritant support.

The Mineral UV Filter formulas avoid the use of any nanoparticles. Instead, a refined dispersion of micronized ZnO and TiO2 in flexible, high-volatility, non-comedogenic silicones allows the formulations to remain extremely lightweight by optimising the amount of the blocking agents. This formulation uses mainly ZnO for its protective effects (because in addition to reflecting/refracting light, ZnO is actually also able to absorb UV rays without creating oxygen radicals) and the supporting TiO2 that it contains is only in rutile form (no anatase form of TiO2 is used at all since it's an aggressive producer of free radicals).

The technologies shared in Mineral UV Filter Formulas’ are:
Bio-Active Antioxidant Network

A potent combination that scavenges and neutralizes free radicals, minimizes the intensity of UV radiation penetrating the skin, visibly protects biological membranes and supports the skin response to UV exposure.
Bio-Sugar Complex

A unique blend of hygroscopic molecules with Multi-layer coverage providing both short and long-term hydration and also naturally increases skin’s own capacity to hold water.
Skin Identical Lipids

Lipids that visibly restore the compromised barrier and prevents transepidermal water loss (TEWL).
Tasmanian Pepperberry

Rich in flavanones, anthocyanins, and minerals, this active technology helps to calm stressed skin, acting almost immediately.
Free from alcohol, nut and gluten.
Vegan & Cruelty-free.
Apply to face liberally and evenly 15 to 20 minutes before UV exposure. If continued UV exposure is expected, to maintain protection, reapply at least every 2 hours or after material water exposure, towel-drying, swimming or extensive perspiration. Suitable for all skin tones.
I would recommend this for anyone who will be travelling to a hot country for a holiday and needs something to protect skin from direct sun exposure.
