Once your skin is squeaky clean, the first step to rehydrate and prep for the rest of your routine is tone, tone, tone. In fact, there’s a popular “multiple skin” method of layering toners of different consistencies for the ultimate hydrating boost – one we love to do during the colder months.
Best Sunscreens for 2022
Incorporating sun care early was a unanimous consensus from our judges when it comes to skincare tips – and for good reason, too. Prevention is better than cure, as the old adage foes, so here are their picks for optimal protection.
Supergoop Unseen Sunscreen
Another product with a cult following, this totally invisible sunscreen is weightless, scentless, and leaves behind a velvety finish. With an oil-free and antioxidant-rich formula, it also works wonders as a make-up-gripping primer, while providing all-day SPF 40 protection.
Anessa Perfect UV Sunscreen Skincare Gel
This waterproof winner that everyone keeps returning to was upgraded earlier this year with a new formula to effectively prevent UV damage with Aqua Booster EX, while keeping the skin moisturised with a combination of plant-based beauty-essence ingredients. It’s an honest, fuss-free option suitable for all skin types.
Diorsnow Ultimate UV Shield
This featherweight formula provides broad-spectrum protection against UVA and UVB rays as well as oxidative stress induced by blue light and infrared rays – your best ally in the combat against hyperpigmentation and photo-ageing.
Guerlain Orchidée ImpérialeBrightening Global UV Protector
Using Orchid Noble light Technology and moringa extract, this SPF 50+ formula fights external aggressors that accelerate appearance of dark spots. It also contains a blend of micro-pearls and pigments to instantly create even skin tone and leaves a subtle radiant glow – perfect for make-up-free days.
