Combining sun protection with anti-ageing ingredients, Salt & Stone SPF50 Natural Mineral Sunscreen Lotion (£12.48) contains zinc oxides, plus avocado and rosehip seed oils to nourish.
4. The facial sunscreen that matches any skin tone
Can’t match your sun cream with your skin tone? Osmosis Protect Broad Spectrum Sunscreen (£38.50) matches to anyone’s skin tone. Plus, it’s free from nanoparticles, which can penetrate the skin.

We love MÁDARA’s range of sunscreens for face and body. The new MÁDARA SPF50 Pro-Active Mineral Sunscreen Stick (£17.75) is rich in minerals and antioxidants. Plus, its size makes it perfect for popping in your handbag and applying on-the-go.
8. Protect and hydrate your face
You’ll get a lovely sheer finish along with your sun protection by using Jurlique UV Defence Lotion SPF50 PA++++ High Protection Lotion (£38). It smells gorgeous and the best thing is, the texture is so light it sinks in easily and quickly. It leaves skin wonderfully soft, as well as protected. Plus, the oil-free formula makes a great base for your make-up, too.
9. Sun protection with a tint
Combine sun protection with an even and fresh skin tone using Evolve Organic Beauty Climate Veil Tinted SPF20 (from £28). The range has been extended to include three new shades – one lighter and two darker – so there’s more choice. It protects you from UVA and UVB rays and blue light. Plus, it treats your complexion with hyaluronic acid to hydrate and Abyssinian oil to moisturise.
10. Make-up with extra protection
Boost your make-up with some extra protection from a dusting of PRIORI Mineral Skincare SPF25 (£36). The nifty container delivers just the right amount of foundation powder to brush over your face, evening out the complexion while protecting it from the sun’s rays with zinc oxide. It also offers a treat for skin with 30 antioxidants on the ingredients list.

We also love the inclusion of green tea extract and vitamins C and E, which add to the skin-loving benefits.
14. Top up your sun protection while out-and-about
For easy top-ups of broad-spectrum protection throughout the day, dab on Whamisa Organic Flowers Sun Pact SPF50 (£28) using the cushion pad provided. Plus, with extracts of spinach and the addition of avocado and mango seed butters, it’s a skin-nourisher, too.
