Best Broad Spectrum UV Moisturisers to suit different skin types
Despite the fact that Ireland rarely sees much actual sunshine we still, as a nation sadly have one of the highest rates of skin cancer in the whole of Europe. This could be in part because SPF face creams have traditionally been considered thick, gloopy and prone to clogging pores - thankfully however, things are changing. There are now a vast array of very good broad-spectrum UV moisturisers available on the market which will not only keep your skin in top condition but also protect it on a daily basis from both UVA and UVB rays; making sun protection an easily integrated part of any skin care regime.
For problem skin, Vichy SPF 50 Capitol Soleil Mattifying Face Fluid is an excellent option as it helps to regulate oil and sits well under foundation throughout the day. Eau Thermale Avene SPF50+ Mineral Cream is perfect for sensitive as well as more mature skin well whilst Shiseido Urban Environment UV Protection (available in SPF30 and SPF50) works best for normal & combination skin types. For those who don’t want to change their moisturiser but still would like added protection Clinique City Block used as a primer is always a good choice and comes in normal SPF 25 & SPF 40.
Vichy, Shiseido & Eau Thermale Avene are available in Pharmacies nationwide and Clinique in selected department stores.
