Apart from ridiculous April it’s been quite a dry winter, I haven’t really stopped cycling except for when it snowed for about a week. I suddenly had a realisation of ‘omfg I’m not wearing sunscreen’ about a month ago, all that face, outside, it’s not good for the old wrinkles. I’m even contemplating wearing gloves so I don’t get granny claws. Enough about my ageing paranoia… I got myself well and truly sunscreened to the maximum and these are my pick of the bunch.
Clinique’s City Block is one of the first proper sunscreens I ever used, it’s a great all-rounder and the 25SPF is high enough for daily use without looking chalky and weird. If you’ve never bought a facial sunscreen before you can’t go wrong with this one. Aveeno’s Positively Radiant Moisturiser is only factor 15, but I think if you don’t spend too much time outdoors, i.e. from tube to office kind of thing then that’s really all you need. It’s got some nice ‘glowy’ stuff so even if you’re not getting a tan you look a little more radiant.
On Rachael’s recommendation Alpha-H’s SPF 50 Daily Essential Moisturiser is what I wear when I’m out on my bike, I’m usually screwing my face up anyway while I ride so I don’t need any help from the sun thankyouverymuch. It’s got vits E which gets double thumbs up, and it is pretty sheer despite the high factor.
