Sunscreen is the best anti-aging formula and if you’re looking for a new sunscreen to use, here are some of our favourites worth trying out.
Sunscreen, $18, from Orbis
It’s oil- and fragrance-free, non-comedogenic and allergy-tested. The light lotion works well for the thinner skin around the eyes.
Sunscreen, $87, from Chanel
On top of being non-comedogenic, this is ophthalmologist- and dermatologist-tested. The gel-cream leaves skin feeling fresh and satiny, and is said to boost skin’s natural defence against environmental stress.
Sunscreen, $21.90, from Sunplay
With super-high sun protection, and vitamins C and E to help counter free-radical damage, this lightweight, non-greasy formula resistant to sweat and water will last throughout the day. It is also free of potential irritants like colourants, fragrances and parabens.
Sunscreen, $30.90, from Anessa
Fast-absorbing, non-sticky and with a clear finish, this won’t weigh your hair down or leave visible residue. Bulgarian rose essence, hyaluronic acid and vitamin C provide skincare benefits.
Sunscreen, $165, from Erno Laszlo
This anti-ageing face cream has a host of vitamins, minerals, essential fatty acids and antioxidants that work on giving you supple, hydrated skin. Massage it in using an upward motion and you’ll reportedly feel a tightening sensation. Wait a few minutes before applying makeup.
Sunscreen, $49, from Alpha-H
Combining five sun filter ingredients for full UV protection, this dual-purpose moisturiser also helps prevent premature skin ageing and is sweat-resistant – great for a sporty day out.
Sunscreen, $39.90, from Anessa
Those who don’t fancy using oil cleansers should try this water-resistant but soap-removable sunscreen that washes off easily with a regular cleanser.
Sunscreen, $17.20, from Sunplay
No need to touch up your sunscreen on an average workday with this water- and sweat-resistant formula offering super-high coverage. The watery texture and sheer finish sit comfortably on skin and won’t interfere with your makeup.
Sunscreen Foundation, $20 for the case and $55 for a single refill, from Lancome
This gives you a higher coverage compared to regular cushions. Its ultra-light texture delivers a natural-looking finish and makes reapplication a breeze.
Sunscreen, $75, from Lancome
You get high protection, hydration and lightweight, comfortable wear rolled into one with this aqueous gel. It also works on minimising oxidative damage caused by UV rays and pollution.
Sunscreen, $92, from Sulwhasoo
The vegetable oil used in this sunscreen gives it high skin adherence, and it blends easily without leaving a sticky feel. In addition, its special film-coating technology prevents pollutants and harmful materials from sticking to skin.
Sunscreen, $72, from Astalift
Sidestep the issue of topping up sun protection over makeup by ensuring you have sufficient and lasting coverage underneath it. Sweat- and sebum-resistant, this works as a makeup base and is enriched with vitamin C, the antioxidant astaxanthin and whitening actives.
Sunscreen, $60, from Shiseido
This is specifically designed for a very hot and humid climate: the more you perspire, the more this light, water-based gel formula reacts with sweat and moisture to form a stronger protective veil.
