It’s summer all year long in Singapore, but it doesn’t mean that everyone is doing what they’re supposed to – slapping on sunscreen as they really, really should.

And because it’s already June (I know, right? Where did the last six months go?), it only means that you should really start now because the mid-year season is when the the sun – oh, the dangerous, wrinkle-accelerating ball of doom – is only going to be up and mighty, shining stronger than ever for the next couple of months. You don’t want to be lulling to Lana Del Rey‘s “Summertime Sadness” every time you’re looking at your sun-wrecked skin and regretting not putting on sunscreen when it’s too late, do you?

And today, sunscreens have come a long way from streaky, pore-clogging formulas from the days of yore that resemble liquid paper. If that’s what’s holding you back all this while, perhaps it’s time to move on from that medieval mindset. Trust us, the luxury beauty business is so up to date with technology and women’s skincare concerns, that the crème de la crème of beauty brands – from Clé De Peau Beauté to SK-II – have employed the latest technology to come up with absorbent, nourishing, skin-loving formulas that will not only prevent ageing by protecting your skin from UVA, UVB, and infrared rays that wreck your skin’s structure (hence all the wrinkles, sagging, hyperpigmentation, burns, and all the other nasties), but also pamper your skin and make you feel like a million bucks. The result is flawless, glowing, line-free skin like Naomi Campbell by the time you reach 50. That’s your skin thanking you for taking care of it so well.
So scroll through the gallery above to see BAZAAR‘s favourite luxury sunscreen picks for the season (and beyond) to see which selections you should save a space on your vanity for. Because if you don’t start preventing sun damage now, then when?
