It wasn’t so long ago when many of us considered applying suncream an essential chore, rather than an appealing part of a skincare routine.
But modern technology and innovations in skincare have now transformed the humble sunscreen, eliminating chemical-heavy compositions and chalky textures to offer a multitude of luxurious options.
The secret to ELEMIS’ silky sunscreen formulas? Unique, revolutionary technology to micronise traditional UVA and UVB sunscreens and enwrap them in a double sphere. Sunscreens make a huge contribution to skin feel, so by optimising their distribution throughout the formulation and on the skin, we can maximise their efficiency. This allows us to focus on texture, lightness and comfort without compromising on efficacy.
ELEMIS offers a trio of superhero sunscreen formulas, and there’s one that’s bound to suit your skin. Read on to find out which one...
Best sunscreen for city skin: Daily Defence Shield SPF30.
Our brand-new Daily Defence Shield works double-duty when it comes to protecting skin from daily aggressors. A weightless, instantly absorbed cream, provides broad-spectrum SPF 30 protection to shield skin from the sun’s harmful rays and, thanks to the game-changing Enviro-Age Complex, which provides an invisible veil for additional protection from environmental pollution factors such as microparticles in the air.
Consider this wonder product a great addition to any routine that currently doesn’t have SPF in it. In love with your Superfood routine? Can’t part with BIOTEC? Simply slip Daily Defence Shield on after your regular day cream for all-round protection and total peace of mind.
Best sunscreen for mature skin: Pro-Collagen Marine Cream SPF30.
Pro-Collagen Marine Cream addicts, this one’s for you: our iconic anti-ageing formula, now with micronised sunscreen technology. This cleverly formulated cream feels, smells and sinks into skin just like the beloved original, but also offers broad-spectrum SPF30 protection from the sun’s rays. Do day creams get any better?
Best suncream for oily and combination skin: Dynamic Resurfacing Day Cream SPF 30.
If the very thought of a thick layer of suncream makes your oily skin break out in revolt, we think you’ll find something to love in our Dynamic Resurfacing Day Cream Broad Spectrum SPF30. Infused with ELEMIS’ patented Tri-Enzyme technology, it works to gently smooth the top layers of the skin while providing protection from the sun. Poria Cocos and Raspberry Seed Oil keep you hydrated through a heat wave, while anti-oxidant Organic Myrtle extract shields from free radicals.
