While there are so many different serums, sprays and masks that can make a huge difference in your skin, there’s one thing you really need – a good moisturiser.
This is one of the three necessities in skincare, along with cleansing and SPF. But if we can combine SPF and moisturiser, that’s ideal!
Using sun protection is one of the most powerful things you can do to prevent visible ageing, as well as keep you safe and healthy.
Therefore, it’s super important to use a good SPF day cream to ensure you’re keeping the skin hydrated and protected. Here’s a round up of our favourites.
Ultraceuticals Ultra UV Protective Moisturiser, SPF 50
Ultraceuticals carry two different types of SPF based on your skin type – hydrating and mattifying. They both contain a vital blend of moisturising ingredients including Shea butter, Sodium Hyaluronate, Panthenol and Niacinamide which support the skin’s lipid shield without clogging the pores or leaving an oily residue.
This is a personal favourite because it sits perfectly under makeup and keeps your skin feeling soft and hydrated all day. These are great because they don’t pill or leave your skin feeling greasy like some SPF products can.
You can shop their SPFs here for €52.
Skingredients Skin Shield Moisturising and Priming SPF 50
This SPF will protect your skin and lightly moisturise, while imparting a dewy finish and peachy tint, making it perfect to add some glow on the days you want a more natural makeup look. It’s great as a primer for makeup or on its own if you want a glow, and it’s perfect as a standalone SPF moisturiser for oilier skin types.
For added skin benefits, you’ll find niacinamide and vitamin E. You can apply every morning post-serum as the perfect makeup primer. Check it out here for €57.
Avène Hydrance UV-Light Hydrating Emulsion SPF30 Moisturiser
This moistueriser hydrates your skin while protecting it against UVA-UVB rays, free radicals, and pollution. Its light, non-greasy texture provides hydration, whilst prevents water evaporating from the skin.
It’s perfect for sensitive and dry skin because it soothes tightness and discomfort. It’s also budget friendly, coming in at only €25.50. Shop it here.
