How to protect your skin from top to toe

Protect your skin as if your life depended on it… because in many ways it does. So get your SPF on – and not just in your sun cream. You need to protect your WHOLE body. So we set out to round up some of the best SPF products for every inch of you.

Although embracing the sunny weather – especially on those rare sunny days in the UK – is always a must, it’s essential to shield your skin from UVA and UVB rays. Staying in the sun for long periods can result in sunburn. And prolonged exposure to UV radiation can damage your skin cells, potentially even leading to skin cancer. To help you prevent serious skin damage, we’ve rounded up a selection of top products for those searching for skin protection or wanting to add SPF to your skincare routine.

Ready to discover some of the best SPF skincare products? Let’s dive in.

Overexposure to the sun can cause skin damage to all parts of the body. And that includes lips. Due to your lips having a thinner skin layer, it causes them to dry out more easily, making them feel uncomfortable and resulting in burnt lips. This handy SPF 15 lipstick will give you eight hours of protection from UV rays, restoring your chapped lips to a lushly smooth state.

Estée Lauder Double Wear Stay-in-Place Makeup 30ml (Various Shades) – £39.50
