Best Facial Sunscreen: IDS S2 Non-Tinted Sunscreen SPF50+ PA+++, $69
Hands up those of you who know that sunscreen is a daily skincare essential, yet still leave it out of your everyday morning regime, whether it is due to the fear that it will make your face look greasy or leave a greyish cast over your skin.
The IDS S2 Non-Tinted Sunscreen SPF50+ PA+++ is a lightweight, oil-free fluid sunscreen containing titanium oxide and zinc oxide, which promises advanced broad-spectrum protection from UVA and UVB rays. These physical sunscreen ingredients block and absorb harmful rays, and prevent sunburns and skin damage while ensuring that the formula is mild enough for sensitive skin.
The addition of vitamin C also enhances the efficacy of the sunscreen ingredients, as it has a potent antioxidant and anti-inflammatory effect. The result? Skin is better equipped against photo-ageing and hyperpigmentation. The fact that it settles into a soft-matte finish to help makeup last longer is an added bonus.
