It's time to diligently apply your SPF. Its benefits are well documented but, should you need a refresher, here's why it's the most important part of your skincare routine:
Sunscreen protects from UV rays to prevent skin cancer, sunburn, hyperpigmentation and the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
Designed to be applied after your moisturiser and before your make-up, it's no longer a thick cream that takes ages to absorb and leaves your skin feeling sticky, thanks to advancements in formulations from budget-friendly and luxury brands
One SPF that's proving popular among beauty shoppers - and boasts rave reviews - is from L'Oreal - the Revitalift Clinical Vitamin C SPF 50+ Daily Anti-UV Fluid.

It's water-resistant too, and has a fast-absorbing, invisible finish, so won't leave you with the dreaded white cast.
