Sunscreen - Finding the right match

I think it’s safe to say that at this time of year some of us may have started reaching for an SPF again after abandoning it over the winter months. Maybe you haven't felt the need until now due to our lovely Scottish climate.....

This shouldn’t be the case, simply put, applying SPF EVERY day is the cornerstone of any decent skincare regime. No matter the weather UVA rays can reach us all year round, they can even reach us through windows….

These ever-present rays speed up the ageing process damaging skin cells in almost all layers of our skin leading to visible signs of ageing and uneven pigmentation.

Then there are UVB rays, the ones that cause sunburn and suntan and damage the top layers of skin, so it is important to choose a broad-spectrum SPF of factor 30+ to protect against both UVA (ageing) and UVB (Burning) rays.

There are so many great options when it comes to sunscreen with most skincare brands having at least one option.

We work with AlumierMD products, not only will these sunscreens protect your skin from UV but have lots of other amazing benefits for your skin too! Including two physical filters Zinc oxide and Titanium dioxide which will sit on top of the skin and reflect the rays away from the skin like a mirror, whereas chemical filters penetrate the skin allowing UV to absorb and increase free radicals in the skin.

We have definitely found that it's important to get the right texture and formula for your skin so that you feel happy applying it everyday. Whether that be tinted or untinted, oil free or oil rich, lightweight or rich and creamy.

AlumierMD's 6 different options of physical filters and broad spectrum sunscreens with SPF 40 and 42 means there's something for everyone.

Clear Shield is non-comedogenic (it won’t block pores) quick drying sunscreen with Niacinamide to soothe and brighten and sodium hyaluronate to hydrate. Apply underneath makeup or alone for smoothing undetectable protection.

Moisture Matte is a match for anyone who finds their skin oily by the end of the day. It helps to hold back that 4 pm shine by both soaking up excess oil and balancing hydration levels. Antioxidants like caffeine, silybin and knotgrass extract help diminish the visible damage triggered by free radicals. Cutting-edge, colour-encapsulated technology blend on the skin, creating a sheer tint and healthy glow. It comes in 3 different shades, Ivory, Sand & Amber, meaning it can double as your daily foundation.

Dry skin will fall in love with Sheer Hydration, thanks to its unique blend that includes moisturising vitamin E. This formula is also packed with free-radical-quenching antioxidants, including a stable vitamin C, resveratrol, grape seed extract, and glutathione. This is our most popular sunscreen and comes in an Untinted formula or a Versatile Tint which blends beautifully on the skin creating a sheer healthy glow.

By choosing antioxidant rich sun protection you’re helping to maximise your skin’s defences every day.

Don't delay, get your SPF on today!
