We all know that we should be wearing sunscreen every day whatever the time of year and there are thousands of products out there, from primers to tinted moisturisers to foundations that contain some level of protection.  Most of them not enough.

The only protection that really counts is the one with at least SPF30, which is the minimum recommended by the experts and whatever else you’re using with SPF level don’t think you can add them all together to reach the right protection, you can’t.  One, at least, has to offer SPF30.

It doesn’t matter how much you spend, what matters is that you find a face cream with SPF and then use it every day, sun in or sun out.  Then at least you’re giving your skin the best chance to avoid wrinkles and pigmentation problems caused by over exposure. 

All of these moisturisers contain an SPF of 30+.  If you ask a dermatologist they’ll say preferably SPF50 and a teaspoonful used every couple of hours when you’re out and about.  I say that’s impossible, but you can at least use enough protection from the get-go.
