Why is sun protection for the face so important?

Protecting the face with sunscreen is one of the best ways to prevent skin ageing. UV radiation causes skin damage that can lead to facial expression lines, wrinkles, folds, pigmentation spots and sagging, leathery skin. This can make you look older than you are, especially on your face. You can prevent this by using the right sunscreen for the face.

What is so special about sunscreen specifically for the face?

Sunscreen for the face should not be confused with sunscreen for the body. Applying ordinary sun cream to your face will quickly make you realise that it can sting your eyes, cause spots or clog your pores. This is because the composition of the creams are different.

A facial sunscreen has several special features:

  • It is quickly absorbed
  • It is finer to apply and can be targeted better thanks to the firmer consistency of the cream
  • The cream is less greasy and rich, which is fine for the body but can lead to pimples on the face
  • It smears less, something that can otherwise quickly become uncomfortable, especially near the mouth and eyes, and lead to burning and irritation

Sunscreens for the face also nourish the skin

Sunscreens for the face generally still contain nourishing ingredients that keep the sensitive skin on the face richly moisturised. This leaves the skin feeling silky smooth and well moisturised.

Additional ingredients in facial sunscreens include various antioxidants and skin-building substances, such as:

  • Coenzyme Q10
  • Vitamins A, C, E and K
  • Ceramides

Most importantly, antioxidants work together with the UV filter against the sun’s harmful rays and also lock in free radicals. Not only does this nourish the skin and build and maintain the skin’s protective barrier, but its interaction of ingredients provides the perfect protection from the sun and therefore from skin damage.

What should be the minimum sun protection factor on the face?

When it comes to sun protection on the face, a sunscreen with SPF 50 is definitely a good choice. Such a high sun protection factor lengthens the skin’s own protection time by a factor of fifty, which means it protects against UV radiation for a longer time than a cream with SPF 30 or 20 would.

Depending on what type of skin you have, a sunscreen with SPF 50 is a good choice. If you spend the whole day in the office and only sit in the sun for half an hour during your lunch break, you need less sun protection than someone who spends the whole day outdoors.

How to correctly apply sunscreen for the face.

First, apply a day cream and then sunscreen. The important thing to remember is that you don’t just apply sunscreen to the face once, you need to keep reapplying it throughout the day. You should regularly apply a new layer of cream, especially on sunny days when you sweat a lot. If you have been swimming or showering, you should also reapply the sunscreen immediately afterwards.

The right facial sunscreen for every skin type

There are different sunscreens for the face depending on skin type. They cater to skin traits such as:

  • Sun cream for particularly sensitive skin that is free of preservatives, alcohol and fragrances.
  • Sun cream for especially dry skin that needs extra moisturising care.
  • Sun cream for greasy skin that does not contain additional fats, but instead reduces the burden on greasy areas.
