It has long been known that besides SPF being a daily essential to protect against sunburn, age spots, premature ageing and even some and skin cancers, it’s also the best anti-aging secret on the market to future-proof our skin.
Did you also know that the paler you are naturally, the more likely you are to suffer the above effects? This is why everyone, but especially us fairer folk must protect our skin from the incredibly harmful effects of sun exposure especially if this is something we encounter on a daily basis.
I’ve been testing Kiehl’s Ultra Light Daily UV Defense with SPF 50 for the last few weeks, after purchasing it for £36 on a recent shopping trip.
Granted, it’s not the cheapest SPF on the market and my worry is that younger beauty buyers would much rather spend the same on an Urban Decay palette or a few Mac Lipsticks, rather than an SPF which let’s face it is never going to be a “cool” product in comparison.
That said, I hope more of you will start taking skin protection more seriously, and this product is a fantastic place to start. It’s lightweight, sits great under make-up or on it’s own with no sticky residue, peeling or white sheen left on the face. Infact it pretty much keeps itself invisible yet genuinely does a great job at protecting the skin.
It layers well against other products though I would still use a separate moisturiser especially if you have dry skin. It hasn’t broken my skin out either or irritated it – both of which are massive pluses!
Check it out here on Kiehl’s website and let me know if you buy it and how you get on with it. For me, I’m really glad to have this in my daily routine and I can’t recommend it enough.
