Being brought up in England, we are mostly taught to apply sun protection in Summer, and even then most of us don't do it on a daily basis, just when we are sitting out and sunbathing. However, whatever the weather, we should be wearing sun protection every single day. During the colder months, we are of course dressed in jumpers and jeans, so our body doesn't always need sun protection, but our face definitely does.
The Ultrasun Face SPF 30* (£22.00 for 50ml) contains an advanced combination of lamellar broad-spectrum SPF30 protection with GSP for Infrared protection, titanium dioxide for blue light protection - which features in mobile phones, tablets and more, and Ectoin. Ultrasun Face SPF 30 comes in a handy pump bottle so it is easy to use and small enough to carry around with you. The formula is super fast-absorbing and there is no greasy residue left on the skin after application. It is suitable for all skin types, even sensitive as it is free of fragrance. As well as sun-protection, the Ultrasun Face also has some skincare benefits to it; keeping the skin moisturised and nourished and reducing the appearance of sun-induced ageing such as lines, wrinkles and enlarged pores. So not only is the formula protecting you from the sun, it also helping to make the skin healthier. You only need a small amount to be applied to the face, neck and décolleté and I apply mine after my usual skincare routine whether or not I am going to be applying makeup.
More than ever, we have recently not been wearing as much makeup. I certainly haven't, because it transfers onto my face masks and I just don't have anywhere to go where I need to wear makeup. However, I still like to have a slight bit of colour and so tinted moisturisers have been my go-to during Lockdown 3. The good news is that the Ultrasun Face Tinted Moisturiser SPF 30* (£26.00 for 50ml), is available in just one shade, however it is blendable to your own skin colour and so there is no worry about finding the right shade for you. The Tinted Moisturiser has the same sun protection and skin nourishing ingredients as the original Face SPF 30 and so there is no need to apply both. As it is a tinted moisturiser, it doesn't add a tonne of coverage, but it does add some warmth to the face and so I can go out of the house and not look super pale due to the lack of a Floridian holiday last year!
It doesn't matter whether it is Summer or Winter, I always get dry lips, whether it be from the cold and wind or the hot sunshine and air conditioning. The Ultrasun Lip Protection SPF 30* (£8.00 for 4.8g) is the perfect addition to my daily skincare routine. This little tube of joy protects against sun, wind and cold weather to provide the lips with intensive care and moisture. It is water resistant (so you can take a drink whilst wearing it) and fragrance free, so once again perfect for even sensitive skin. Just like with the Face SPF 30 and Face Tinted SPF 30, this protects against both UVA and UVB, and is super quick and easy to use. After all, the lips are one of the first parts of the face which start to show age, and so by protecting them with this Lip Protection, we can avoid that Dot Cotton look!
