The Com­plex­ion per­fect­ing Primer

Korean women know a thing or two about keep­ing their skin in check. so when they cham­pion anspf, we take note. say hello to thank you farmer sun project Shim­mer ess en ce­spf 30,£27 at cult Beauty. this next gen­er­a­tion sun screen com­bines the hy­dra­tion of a mois­turiser with the soft-fo­cus ef­fect of a blur balm and leaves skin with the dreami­est glow.

The Ci­tys­mart Spritz

Thanks to ridicu­lously high lev­els of pol­lu­tion, ur­ban dwellers need to up the ante when it comes to their SPF. Thank­fully, Garnier Mois­ture Bomb Multi-pro­tect­ing Hy­drat­ing Mist SPF30,£9.99, teams two of the most pow­er­ful com­plex­ion de­fend­ers. Pome­gran­ate ex­tract helps to fight off the bad bits of pol­lu­tion that are flung } at skin ev­ery day, while a hit of hy­dra­tion floods skin with mois­ture so it be­comes bet­ter at pro­tect­ing it­self. The added SPF and handy spritz de­liv­ery sys­tem also means it takes mil­lisec­onds to spray across skin – a must-have for those on the go.

The Sand-fight­ing SPF

Sand and sun cream don’ t ex­actly make the per­fect part­ners. un­til now. vichy’ s Anti-sand Milk SPF30,£18, con­tains spe­cial tech­nol­ogy that pre­vents those pesky sand grains from stick­ing to your skin. Com­pletely non-greasy, the cream-meets-lo­tion hy­brid sinks into skin within sec­onds. It’s also great for those with sen­si­tive skin. This gives a whole new mean­ing to beach beauty!

The al- nat­u­ral nour­isher

Al­though min­eral sun creams are safer for us (the par­ti­cles are too big to be ab­sorbed into skin), they’re more ex­pen­sive to for­mu­late than chem­i­cal ver­sions and tend to leave a thick, chalky cast. Meet the first 100 per cent nat­u­ral min­eral for­mula, which has been two years in the mak­ing. Rich in an­tiox­i­dants and blended with plant oils, you’ll find no harm­ful in­gre­di­ents in Tropic Tinted Skin Shade Fa­cial Sun Pro­tec­tion SPF50, £24 , and it won’t leave you look­ing like Casper the ghost. The shade suits all skins, pro­vides UVA and UVB pro­tec­tion and looks like you’re wear­ing a BB cream and noth­ing else.

The fit­ness-friendly for­mula

Swim­ming pools and the sea were once a sun-care stick­ing point, but Shi­seido’s Wet­force Sports BB SPF 50+,£32, clev­erly uses water to its ad­van­tage. The sweatier you get (or the more times you jump into the pool), the harder the for­mula works to pro­tect you from sun dam­age. You don’t have to com­pro­mise on cov­er­age ei­ther, be­cause its flat­ter­ing skin tint masks im­per­fec­tions to give in­stant and nat­u­ral ra­di­ance, so you can skip the foun­da­tion al­to­gether. Hal­lelu­jah!

The Pim­ple-pro­tect­ing cream

Ev­ery girl with blem­ish-prone skin knows that sun­screens are their kryp­tonite. Min­eral SPFS tend to sit on top of the skin and gunk up pores, while chem­i­cal ones ir­ri­tate it, lead­ing to break­outs. Step for­ward your new sun-care su­per­hero: Avene Cleanance So­laire SPF50,£16. It’s the only SPF proven to pro­tect skin from harm­ful rays and fight blem­ishes si­mul­ta­ne­ously. If that wasn’t enough, it also man­ages to mop up any ex­cess oil, prim­ing skin so you can ace your make-up ap­pli­ca­tion. In a nut­shell? This prod­uct is spot on.

The Sweat­proof Pro

Go­ing to Glasto? Plan­ning a blowout in Ibiza? Do not go any­where with­out pack­ing La Roche Posay An­the­lios Anti-shine In­vis­i­ble Mist SPF50,£14. The high-tech for­mula has the unique abil­ity to ab­sorb up to 100x its weight in se­bum, mean­ing no mat­ter how hard you party (and sweat), your make-up will never mi­grate down your face. The for­mu­la­tion is so sci­en­tific that it was NASA which orig­i­nally har­nessed it for its anti-sweat su­per­pow­ers. Plus: its weight­less tex­ture melts into skin so seam­lessly you don’t even know it’s there, so you can spritz over make-up through­out the day. Ge­nius!
