    Suncare Simplified

    Monday, May 26th, 2008

    The sun presents a whole new set of skin problems, whether you suffer a sunburn from a bad application or a greasy formula causes a breakout. From water resistant to all-natural sunscreen, here are a few picks for every need under the sun:

    Biotherm Ultra-Fluid Body Milk Sun Protection SPF 30
    Part of the Biotherm Sun Multi Protection line not only protects from both UVA and UVB rays, but moisturizes skin for up to eight hours. The lighter consistency of this product goes on like a lotion, but be careful of squeezing out too much.

    Available at Shoppers Drug Mart and Sears

    Kiehl’s Vital Sun Protection SPF 30 sunscreen
    This all-sport formula provides UVA, UVB and broad-spectrum coverage for your skin and is water resistant for up to 80 minutes in the water.

    Available at Kiehl’s stores and Bergdorf Goodman

    Clinique UV Response SPF 50
    With a high SPF, this heavy duty sunscreen is a skin-friendly lightweight, oil-free lotion. This formula also contains liposomes that release anti-oxidants when exposed to UV light. Packaged in a upright tube, it lets you squeeze out every last bit of lotion.

    Available at Holt Renfrew and Nordstrom

    Burt’s Bees SPF 30 Chemical-Free Sunscreen with Hemp Seed Oil
    This 100% natural sunscreen provides protection through Titanium Dioxide which creates a fine barrier to reflect harmful UVA and UVB rays while hemp seed oil prevents the loss of moisture from your skin. The tube packaging is both economical and environmentally friendly as 25% of it is made from post-consumer waste.

    Available at Whole Foods and London Drugs

    L’Occitane Do Brasil Sunscreen Cream SPF 30 -Available July 2008

    Containing only natural colours and fragrances, the new Buriti do Pará line of sun protection contains no chemical filters and is dermatologist tested. This mineral based sunscreen offers the standard broad spectrum protection as well as being immediately effective upon application, which is especially helpful if you are one of those people who forget to apply 30 minutes before sun exposure.

    Available at L’Occitane stores and Sephora

    Kiehl’s Ultra Protection Water-Based Sunscreen Lotion SPF 25
    If you have breakout prone or sensitive skin, use a water-based lotion. This non-greasy formula is light enough to wear under makeup for every day. Don’t worry if too much comes out of the bottle as liberal applying will go a long way.
