THE MOST IMPORTANT PART OF YOUR BEAUTY ROUTINE

FINALLY some weather resembling spring, or dare we say it... Summer. We're loving being able to decompress in the garden after work, but admit it, who's been wearing SPF!?

We all know the advice that we should be wearing sun cream every day, but rushed mornings and a perhaps, if you're like us, a lack of something light and easy to absorb, means we sometimes go without. Big mistake apparently. Did you know, for example that most normal windows don't filter out all of the harmful UV rays, and that being out in this warm weather without sun protection is worse for our skin than holidays when we're a bit more careful. 

In a bid to preserve all of our complexions, we've pulled together our favourites daily SPF creams that are light and wearable without the greasy side effects or the ghostly white face. We've even categorised them for your enjoyment, so read on and find the one that suits you. Here's to less wrinkles and more evenings out in the garden with a gin and tonic! 

 

For an everyday glow: try the Clinique Super City Block, £18.50: options for SPF 25 or 40 and amazingly seems to blur imperfections- genius! 

For sheer perfection: SkinCeuticals Sheer Mineral UV Defence, £36.75: a bit more pricy but the one to go for if you really want to avoid that Caspar the ghost shine! 

For the handbag: Nivea Sun Pocket Size, £3: the perfect allrounder for when you get some surprise sunshine! 

For on the go: bareMinerals Natural Sunscreen, £25: although makeup doesn't really provide enough coverage on its own, it is great for quick touch ups when you don't want to spoil your make up! Alice loves this mess free Bare Minerals brush.
