Times when a deliberate tan was considered fashionable and relevant, long gone. In 2018, every self-respecting girl firmly learned that the abuse of sunbaths leads to premature aging, pigmentation and, in the worst case, melanoma.

Tips for different skin types

Sensitive skin

Avoid products with artificial odors and choose brands that specialize in cosmetics for sensitive skin, for example, La Roche-Posay Anthelios XL 50+. For stronger protection around the eyes, try a stick with zinc oxide, which works like a natural sun block.

Oily skin

Creams can provoke clogging of pores and the appearance of inflammation, so the owner of oily skin is better to use sunscreens with mineral components – zinc oxide and titanium oxide. Choose products without oils in its base – for example, Heliocare 360 Gel Oil-Free SPF 50.

Skin prone to pigmentation

You need a powerful defense – with a sunscreen factor of at least 50. And even better, if the product will be with anti-aging effect – they usually powerfully nourish and lighten slightly due to vitamin C.

Pale and sensitive skin

Owners of this type of skin should minimize their exposure to the sun: even a slight exposure to sunlight, in their case, often leads to redness. “Look for protection with alpha-glucosyl-rutin in the formulation, denoted as AGR, a powerful antioxidant that reduces the susceptibility of the skin to sunlight,” advises Dr. Hextstall. For example, Eucerin Allergy Protection Sun-Creme Gel SPF 50.
