Our New Superhero: Supercharged SPF

Our New Superhero: Supercharged SPF

Remember when you were little and your parents would apply a really thick layer of sunscreen that would leave you looking like a ghost and smelling for the next few hours? Well, times have changed (thankfully), and it no longer has to be such a pain to apply SPF. In fact, the technology around sunscreen is evolving rapidly. From those that are lightweight and don’t leave a white cast to ‘reef safe’ ingredients. We are entering a new era where sunscreen is available for all skin types and skin colors. There are different brands, with different ranges of SPF suitable for any of your skin needs!

SUPERCHARGED SPF- PROS

Sunscreen is available for everyone! No more excuse for not protecting your skin every single day. Don’t forget that 97% of premature aging is caused by UV radiation and yes the blue light emitted from your phones and computers also. With our consultation and database of products, we always make sure in our consultations to recommend you to the most suitable sunscreen for your skin needs.

SUPERCHARGED SPF- CONS

Since there are going to be many more SPF options, you will need to make sure to select the appropriate SPF for your skin needs. Therefore, test the product before buying it if possible! We really like Paula’s Choice for this, you can also go to boots and test out textures!

BRANDS THAT ARE EMBRACING THIS TREND

  • Supergoop. This is one of the only brands out there dedicated to SPF, so they really know their shit. From physical to mineral sunscreen, transparent to tinted, you will be sure to find the appropriate sunscreen no matter your skin tone and needs.

  • Coola. The best SPF for conscious consumers, there are a variety of mineral SPFs and SPFs to go under make-up here! We love their primers with SPF as well as their eye and lip SPF products.

  • Paula’s Choice. When we think about supercharged SPF, Paula’s Choice Moisturisers are the first to pop into our mind! They all contain at least SPF 30 and are supercharged with different antioxidants to ensure that the skin is also fully protected from other environmental stressors.
