The best sunscreens for your needs
You already know how much we care about the health of your skin. Nothing rhymes with healthy skin better than… sunscreen!
We have already introduced you to the ultimate importance of sunscreen in several of our previous blog articles, such as this one. While most of us have postponed our travels until 2021, it's important to point out that the sun damages our skin regardless of our geolocation.
Year-round, even in winter, you must protect your skin with a broad-spectrum sunscreen (the only cream that protects your skin from UVA/UVB rays) with an SPF of at least 30. Sunscreen is proven to be the best anti-ageing skin product and one of the most certain ways to prevent skin cancer.
We are aware that it is difficult to choose your sunscreen, especially since it depends on your tastes and your skin. To inspire you to protect yourself and help you make the right choice based on your needs, here is a collection of our most popular sunscreens:
