Here comes the sun - stay protected with exceptional SPF facial creams and sunscreens, specially formulated to deliver additional benefits for the skin.

Sunny days are just around the corner, which means it’s time to stock up on sun protection – whether your plans include going outside to exercise, or enjoying a relaxed afternoon in your garden.

Did you know? Protecting your skin from the sun can help prevent premature ageing (e.g. appearance of wrinkles), discolouration, and much more. And remember – UV rays can still be damaging on the gloomiest, greyest days.*

We’ve rounded up five phenomenal sunscreens and face moisturisers with SPF from trusted brands Dermalogica, bareMinerals, Trilogy, Ultrasun and REN to help you stay safe and avoid sunburn. Each of these skincare heroes boasts further properties and benefits such as intense hydration, a mattifying finish or even defense against blue light. Let’s get to know them:

The single best thing you can do for your skin is protect it from the sun. Wear sunscreen daily, get busy, start your business, and go change the world.’ – Jane Wurwand, Dermalogica Founder
