Sun Protection Products for Face & Décolletage
Your face, neck and chest are constantly exposed to the sun. Ultraviolet A (UVA), the most ageing rays in the sun's spectrum penetrate clouds and even glass, so to keep skin on your face and décolletage young, you need to apply sun protection every single day, all year round. If you're worried about your Vitamin D levels, you could go for a simple blood test and take a Vitamin D3 supplement if needed.
I recommend a broad-spectrum (UVA/UVB) SPF30-50 sunscreen cream instead of a morning moisturiser. There have recently been some very interesting scientific studies which demonstrate that we rarely achieve the SPF protection on the label - simply because we don't slap on as much product as they do in the lab when it's tested. This is why I recommend using products with higher SPFs that give decent protection without us having to slather on a thick, sticky layer.
Nevertheless, make sure you adjust the sun protection product to your skin type to prevent breakouts or dry skin. For normal skin I like Skinceuticals Ultra Facial Defense, while for combination and oily skin, Heliocare Gel is ideal. If you have dry and allergy-prone skin, avoid chemical UV filters and stick to mineral (physical) filters like titanium dioxide or zinc oxide only - Sunsense Physical UV Defense is excellent. Don't forget to apply your antioxidant serum in the morning, before you apply sun protection. more information..
