One of the worst things you can do to your skin isn’t by forgetting to cleanse, or moisturise, or not use a silk pillowcase while you sleep; it’s by neglecting to protect it with a good SPF lotion. In case you hadn’t heard, constant exposure to the sun’s deadly UV rays can cause skin cancer, dryness, dark spots, and premature wrinkles (yikes!).
So in our tropical weather, where the sun rarely hides behind the clouds, sunscreen is crucial. It will make sure your skin doesn’t get damaged, with others even having extra benefits such as hydrating and brightening up your complexions.
But if you’re worried that sunscreen might break you out or cause irritation, don’t be! Below are our favourite sunscreens that will protect your skin all day long, and are perfect for all skin types!
