Cerave Facial Moisturising Lotion with SPF 25

A handy multitasker, this moisturiser fits neatly into your morning routine. The hydrating effects of  hyaluronic acid, niacinamide and ceramides work hard in this non-comodegenic formula – meaning it won’t block your pores or cause any unwanted breakouts. The broad spectrum sunscreen inside absorbs quickly into all skin types, leaving no chalky, white residue behind. At a relatively low SPF 25, it’s more suited to day-to-day life than an afternoon spent soaking rays.

PCA Skin Weightless Protection Broad Spectrum SPF 45

This quick-absorbing and lightweight broad spectrum sun cream is perfect for everyday wear, protecting you from harmful UV rays. It also offers antioxidant protection from milk thistle and caffeine so it can reduce signs of ageing from the inside as well as blocking the sun’s damaging rays. It’s free from oxybenzone and octinoxate too, meaning it’s compliant with coral reef safety laws too.
