Today…The Sun Protection Hero: La Roche Posay
‘Sunscreen, schmunscreen’, we hear you wail… ‘grab 2 for 1 Soltan at the airport. Slip, slap, schlop and job done’.
And wouldn’t that be lovely! But, dear readers, we all know how important sun protection is and therefore it should be given careful thought.
Top notch brands, such as La Roche Posay give you everything you need and more. Firstly, and most importantly, they won’t backfire on you. I for one, am ferociously allergic to, the more economically friendly, Soltan (as discovered after a particularly uncomfortable trip to Corfu), and have since found many of my friends are too.
In comparison, La Roche Posay’s paraben and perfume free formula means that even the most sensitive skins are protected (their anti Rosaliac UV Anti-Redness Moisturizer is also genius for minimizing even the most severe rosacea, swelling and irritation). Additionally, the brand has a brilliantly wide range of products, allowing you to choose suncream like you would a day cream – for dry/sensitive skin, normal/combination skin etc.
And the best? Well, La Roche-Posay Anthelios XL Extreme Fluid SPF50 is a real beauty editor’s favourite, it manages to be amazingly lightweight yet super hydrating. Plus, Charlize Theron raves about it…need we say any more?
