We know that 10-step (or more) skincare routines are the norm. But for busy working women who want to sleep in just a little longer in the morning, multi-functional products to simplify their skincare routines are always welcome. And since applying sunscreen is an important step in skincare – especially if you want to stave off premature ageing and hyperpigmentation – sunscreens that do it all are one of the must-have products in your routine. Here, the best eight do-it-all sunscreens to buy:
1. Supergoop Superscreen Daily Moisturizer SPF 40, $55
This face moisturiser, which has SPF 40, has blue-green algae extracts and a mineral called cerium to help moisturise skin, fight off damaging free radicals and scatter blue light emitted from electronic devices. The moisture-binding plant formula also helps protect against pollution.
2. Shiseido White Lucent Day Emulsion SPF 50+/PA++++, $90
A lightweight moisturiser, this offers long-lasting hydration and targets existing dark spots with a blend of skin-brightening ingredients to suppress melanin production, prevent collagen breakdown, promote microcirculation, soothe inflammation and protect skin against pollutants.
3. VMV Hypoallergenics Hydra Balance Smart Moisturizer, $46
This do-it-all moisturiser is suitable for all skin types, and for both body and face application. Enriched with virgin coconut oil and glycerin, this helps keep skin moisturised and soft. It’s also non-comedogenic, so it prevents acne breakouts too.
4. Perricone MD No Makeup Foundation SPF30, US$50.69
This lightweight sunscreen lotion has vitamins A, C and E, and safflower extracts to provide antioxidant benefits to skin. It is also tinted, which helps balance out skin tones and impart a flattering radiance to skin. It is also free of parabens, sulfates and phthalates.
