If you’re in the market for a new sun cream, the overwhelming number of options available can make it difficult to decide which product to buy. From chemical vs physical sun blockers to natural moisturizers, there are plenty of factors to consider when purchasing your next bottle of face sunscreen. To help you choose the best face sun cream for your needs and preferences, we’ve compiled this list of top 5 face sun creams for 2022…

Moisturising with SPF

A good face sun cream should not only moisturise your skin, but also protect it from the harmful effects of the sun. In this post, we’ll be discussing the best face sun creams for 2022, so you can be sure to find one that suits your needs.   Firstly, SPF is an important factor when choosing a face sun cream. We recommend using a minimum of SPF 15 and ensuring the ingredients list includes titanium dioxide or zinc oxide. The second important aspect is what type of skin you have – oily or dry.   For oily skin, there are water-based products with mattifying properties that are designed to control excess sebum production. For dry skin, look for products with light moisturising properties to replenish moisture levels in the skin while protecting it against damage caused by UV rays.

Types of Sunscreens

Here are some common types of sunscreens: chemical, physical, mineral, and organic.

Chemical sunscreens work by absorbing UV rays like zinc oxide and titanium dioxide do. These ingredients provide protection against both UVA and UVB rays while preventing free radicals from forming.

Physical sunscreens reflect UV light like zinc oxide does by sitting on the surface of the skin or below it (like titanium dioxide). Physical sunscreen is usually better for people with sensitive skin since there are fewer chemicals involved.

Mineral sunscreens contain titanium dioxide and zinc oxide which help absorb the UV rays while providing added benefits such as anti-inflammatory properties.

Organic sunscreens use ingredients derived from plants such as aloe vera, green tea extract, carrot seed oil, white tea extract, and cucumber extract to prevent damage to cells caused by UV radiation.

When choosing a sunscreen, pay attention to the following labels: PABA-free, waterproof, broad spectrum, hypoallergenic.

PABA free means that it doesn’t include paba, an ingredient which can cause skin irritation -Waterproof means that it will not come off when swimming or perspiring -Broad spectrum means that the product provides protection against both UVA and UVB rays

Hypoallergenic means that the product has been formulated without any substances known to cause allergic reactions
