Although keeping your skin clean and hydrated is always going to be important, most experts agree that the easiest way to care for your skin is by wearing sunscreen on a daily basis. Wearing sunscreen can prevent skin damage, including wrinkles, unwanted pigmentation, skin thinning and cancer. It’s also a common misconception that you only need to wear sunscreen on warmer days; you can still get burned when it’s cloudy, so wear sunscreen daily.
With this in mind, we’ve curated a list of our best sunscreens for every different skin type:
When you have normal skin, you often have the pick of many different products, but finding a daily SPF which works well with make-up can still be a challenge. Elemis Daily Defence Shield SPF30 is a perfect base for make-up and offers broad protection against environmental factors including UV rays, high energy visible light and pollution. It has a super light texture and contains both coconut and jojoba oils to nourish the skin.
When people with dry skin use sunscreens which aren’t formulated for dryness, they often find that the product can look chalky or exacerbate flakiness. Decleor Aloe Vera Sun Gel Cream SPF50 is a gel-based sunscreen offering broad spectrum SPF50 protection which also deeply hydrates dry and ageing skin. Aloe vera soothes and prevents inflammation and botanical sesame oils leave the skin feeling nourished and hydrated.
Many sunscreens are oil-based to prevent them from being washed away too easily, but this can play havoc with oily and spot prone skin. Dermalogica Clearing Defence SPF30 is a shine-reducing SPF moisturiser that protects breakout-prone skin from environmental stress. It offers a matte finish which doesn’t clog the pores while protecting the skin from the suns harmful rays.
If your skin is ageing, either prematurely or when it should, you’ll find that you need added protection from the sun. This is because, as we age, our skin loses the ability to make certain key elements, leaving our skin thinner and more delicate. Dermalogica Dynamic Skin Recovery SPF50 will help achieve absolute hydration and defend against the internal and external causes of skin ageing.
If you suffer from hyperpigmentation, you’re probably all too aware that sun exposure can exacerbate the condition more than almost anything else, so having a good SPF is essential. SkinCeuticals Advanced Brightening UV Defence SPF 50 is a dual-action, lightweight sunscreen with SPF50 that helps protect the skin from UV-induced discolouration and helps evens skin tone.
Spring cleaning doesn’t only apply to your home, it can also apply to your skin care routine. Winter skincare is very different to springtime skin care and often focuses on hydration and nourishment, as the icy weather can be harsh on your complexion. However, once Spring comes around you can ease up a little on the intense moisturisers and move towards a lighter skin care routine which suits the slightly warmer months. Springtime usually means that dryness gets better as humidity levels even out and don’t cause your skin to dry so much. With this in mind we thought we’d look at some springtime swaps that you should be doing to bring your skincare routine out of winter hibernation.
Grab a Clay Cleanser
Clay cleansers, such as Decleor Clay Powder Cleanser, are ideal for drawing impurities out of your skin. This is essential after a long, hard winter as often dead skin cells will be clogging your pores, as well as traces of dirt or oil and pollution. Clay cleansers will help to rid your complexion of all of these nasties, giving you a clearer base, moving into spring.
Now is the time when you should think about adding an exfoliator into your weekly beauty routine. Skin often looks rather doll after months in freezing temperatures so sloughing away dead skin cells and revealing the new fresh complexion beneath is one of the quickest ways to revive a brighter, clearer complexion. We recommend Decleor Green Mandarin Exfoliating 2 in 1 Scrub Mask.
Opt for a Lightweight Moisturiser
During the winter, we tend to opt for ultra rich oil-based moisturisers just to give our skin an adequate amount of hydration. However, once spring has sprung opting for a water-based lightweight moisturiser will be more than adequate and won’t leave you with an excess of oil. Dermalogica UltraCalming Calm Water-Gel is a weightless water gel moisturiser which is perfect for your transition to Spring skin care.
Add an SPF
We try to drum it into our customers that they should be wearing some form of sun protection all year round, even in winter and even in our seemingly weak UK sun. However, we know that a lot of people still don’t do this and if you’re stubbornly going to refuse to wear an SPF in the winter the least you can do is add it to your spring routine. Elemis Daily Defence Shield SPF 30 is the perfect base under makeup and offers broad protection against environmental factors such as UV rays, high-energy visible light and pollution.
Adding a mask to your weekly routine is a great way to re-energize your skin and re texturise your complexion. Decleor White Magnolia Mask Absolute is a fresh textured mask blended with highly concentrated extract of peony lychee and rhodiola to re-energize the skin.

We all know how difficult it can be to deal with skin issues such as dry skin, oily skin or aging skin. However, dealing with combination skin often means that you’re dealing with two or more of these problems at once, which can make skin care all the more difficult. Combination skin requires targeted products and sometimes more than one product in different areas of your face so that you can adequately deal with all of the issues at once. With that in mind, we’ve curated a list of products which are perfect for combination skin and should help you to bring all your issues into line.
Cleansing combination skin can be particularly difficult because you have areas of dryness where flaky skin is an issue, as well as oily areas which need something a bit more potent to help control sebum overproduction. This cleanser from Elemis balances the skin by deep cleansing it, removing the build up of daily pollutants and getting rid of makeup. It contains extracts of lime blossom and vitamin A which will soothe your skin and helps to rid you of excess surface oil.
Often combination skin mains that your skin has an all over dryness problem, but will over-produce sebum in some areas to overcompensate, while other areas remain dry. This night balm from decleor is made from 100% natural ingredients and has a melt-in texture which will care for combination and oily skin. It’s a balancing product which will reduce inflammation, cure underlying dryness and prevent the skin from producing too much oil. You’ll wake-up with cleaner healthier and more radiant skin.
Combination skin usually benefits from all-day moisturisation, which is why you need a product like this cream from Elemis. It’s an ultralight cream which provides hydration all day long and works with the skin’s natural moisturising factor to help maintain a balanced moisture level. It improves the texture of the skin, balances dryness, oiliness and soothes irritation.
This cream from Jan Marini combines glycolic acid, salicylic acid and azelaic acid to provide a dramatically smoother, clearer, more luminous complexion. It’s perfect for combination and dry skin and will help to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, while also dealing with redness, acne scarring, large pores and uneven texture. It’s also great for skin which suffers from acne, hyperpigmentation and rosacea and gives the skin a deep wash of moisture, which will balance dryness and redness.
This highly-scientific formula from Elemis harnesses patent-pending Bioenergy Complex, which is made up of encapsulated zinc and copper. It contains a trio of acids which help support combination skin for optimum skin function. It contains ingredients such as cold pressed desert date oil, which will balance the skin, control excess sebum while smoothing and hydrating the complexion, leaving it fresh and shine free. It can be used every morning and should be applied to cleansed skin.
