Protect your face in the sun with moisturising sunscreen

Sun Protection - Emma

Sun-kissed skin, freckles, and preferably a radiant complexion – now is the time to think about protecting your face against the warm spring sun.

Finally, spring has arrived and the warm rays of the sun are welcoming us. Ideally, we turn our faces towards the sun wherever we stand and wait, or while we lean against a sun-warmed wall.


We all know that the sun is wonderful and provides us with necessary vitamin D, and many of us have longed for that sun-kissed look after a cold and long winter. But the first rays of the sun can be harmful against a pale face, and sometimes it's easy to forget the importance of applying sunscreen to the face year-round. However, it's especially important in spring and summer when the sun appears frequently and is at its strongest. Combining it with a sun hat or cap and sunglasses is also a good idea.

It's important to be meticulous with areas that are particularly exposed, such as eyelids, nose, cheekbones, lips, and décolletage. You might be tempted to use the same sunscreen for both your body and face, but the fact is that the outer layer of skin on the face is thinner than on your body, and the skin type is different. Moreover, if you have sensitive or very oily skin, it's even more important to opt for a product specifically formulated for the face.

After cleansing, serum, and day cream, it's time to apply sunscreen. Use a generous amount. Then, it is also good to reapply several times a day, especially if you sweat a lot or swim and dry yourself with a towel.

But also remember that even if you have sunscreen, it's good to take a break from the sun when it's at its highest between 11 a.m. and 3 p.m. and retreat into the shade now and then.

If you use SPF 30, it protects you against 97% of UVB rays, and if you use SPF 50, it protects you against 98% of UVB rays. So, it's better to choose a high SPF than a low one!
