How to choose a sunscreen for the face
An essential product once the first rays of sun break through each year, sunscreen ensures perfect tanning. Thanks to Clarins, you can now choose from a wide range of sunscreen products for the face.
Why use sunscreen?
Once the good weather sets in, we are exposed to the sunshine and suncare becomes inevitable. Although sunny weather puts us in good spirits, UV rays are the skin’s worst enemy and no part of the skin suffers more than the skin of the face. The face is more exposed than the rest of the skin, which is why it is here that brown spots, wrinkles, dry skin and other signs of ageing first appear. UV rays also weaken the elasticity of the skin. As such, we strongly recommend using a good moisturizer and a daily sunscreen lotion.
Which sunscreen should I choose?
There are many factors to take into consideration when choosing a sunscreen lotion for the face: skin type, geographical conditions, time spent in the sun, location… If your skin is already hydrated, tanned and correctly prepared for sun exposure with the adequate suncare products to protect it, a Sun Wrinkle Control Cream SPF 15 is ideal as long as exposure is moderate. Equally, an SPF 30 or 50 sunscreen is a better choice for pale skin or for longer exposure times.
At high altitudes or during skiing holidays, choose a sunscreen specially designed for very exposed areas such as the Sun Control Stick For Sun Sensitive Areas UVA/UVB 30, which comes highly recommended.
