After the bank holiday sun had us all reaching for sun cream, we decided a refresh on SPF products was in order. In the spirit of optimism we’re hoping there’s many more sunny days in store for us this summer, yet come rain or shine, sunscreen is always a skincare essential. With protection against UV rays and blue light, our SkinCeuticals collection protects your skin from damage. Long gone are the days of ghostly white, sticky creams that never seemed to rub in; sun protection has developed considerably in recent years, with more focus being given to creams that can be used daily to not only protect the skin but perfect it as well.
Our partners at SkinCeuticals pride themselves by offering a diverse range of SPF products: with mineral and chemical formulas, for the complexion or eye contour, with varying finishes- there’s something for everyone. Discover three of our most popular sun creams, with insider commentary from the Cowshed educator Jess, to help you find the one best suited to you.
The brightening sun cream corrects the skin and prevents photo-ageing, brown spots and pigmentation.
Jess says: ‘As a chemical sun cream it absorbs the UV rays rather than blocking them, so you are still receiving the nutritional value of vitamin D whilst protecting against damage.’
Our mattifying mineral cream provides full coverage and protection, while being light in texture and gentle to skin.
Jess says: ‘Mineral creams are sometimes referred to as physical protection, as the cream sits on the surface of the skin and reflects the UV away from the body, creating a physical barrier between you and the UV rays. It’s suitable for all skin types, especially sensitive skin or post-peel irritated skin as it offers a gentle, total defence.’
Formulated to defend and enhance the sensitive and thinner skin of the eye contour, this cream is tinted and gentle enough for daily protection.
Jess says: ‘The skin of the eye area is the most sensitive to damage and shows the first signs of ageing, so we need to do all we can to protect it. Sun protection and hydration is a key part of this.'
