Facial Sunscreen is extremely important to wear everyday. Typically makeup and daytime facial lotions come equipped with SPF 15 or 30.
These products can help prevent skin damage and wrinkles, however, most dermatologists will recommend that you use a separate skin sunscreen that has a higher SPF.
It is also recommended that those with sensitive skin should rely on one moisturizer for day and night to keep their facial routine consistent. In this case it is very important to apply sunscreen in the morning before your moisturizer.
Below are list of three facial sunscreens ranging from affordable to luxury:
Inexpensive: Vanicream SPF 60 (picture above). Vanicream is a great brand that works great for senstive skin.
Vanicream is free from dyes, fragrances, parabens, and other common chemical irritants. You can grab a 4oz tube at your local pharmasist for about $15.
Moderate: La Roche-Posay Anthelios 60 Ultra Light Sunscreen Fluid. La Roche Posay provides a facial sunscreen that eliminates shine with a matte finish.
This sunscreen is also made with Senna Alata, a tropical leaf extract which La Roche-Posay claims to be a powerful skin antioxidant. A 1.7oz bottle is $27.50.
Expensive: Chanel UV Essentiel Protective UV Care Anti-Pollution SPF 30+. Percision by Chanel provides a facial sunscreen with mineral and plant based ingredients such as licorice extract which Chanel claims help to erase evidence of sun damage. A one ounce tube is $48.
