“What is the best anti-aging thing I can do for my skin?” Without hesitation, the answer is SUNSCREEN. The sun is responsible for approximately 80% of the signs of ageing. Blame it for sagging skin and wrinkles; brown spots (hyperpigmentation); white spots (hypo pigmentation), and more.
UV rays penetrate glass and reflect off surfaces, so it’s impossible to avoid altogether. Wearing a hat does help, as does sun-protective clothing when we’re outdoors. In the end, though, it’s sunscreens that are the best sun protection for our face and hands that are always exposed to UV light. Here are some SPF Makeup options for you to try out.

What sunscreen should I be using?
Australian non-profit organisation ‘Cancer Council’ recommends using any sunscreen that is labelled broad-spectrum, water-resistant and SPF30 or above. Remember to also check the expiry date, as products that are past their use-by date will not give proper protection. No sunscreen is perfect, and it will have to be reapplied every two hours, or more if you are sweating or swimming.
