Perfect skin starts at 30

New research suggests that any SPF under 30 is a waste of time. Here’s the latest breed of hard-working high factors you need to know about...

For stressed-out skin

Origins A Perfect World SPF35 UV Face Protector With White Tea, £19 .

Ideal for city dwellers, this provides a shield against UV rays and pollution thanks to its silver tip white tea. Use it under, or in place of, your daily moisturiser.

For a luminous Finish

Clarins UV HP Day Screen High Protection SPF40, £29.50.

Clarins has got it spot on with this light-as-air lotion which floats onto skin. Its hint of pastel pink makes it ideal to wear under make-up. We like the portable bottle too – a triumph for skin.

For pigmentation

Ole Henriksen Protect The Truth SPF50, £31.

Use this citrus-scented cream as the first part of your daily skin routine. It’s packed with marine enzymes and powerful antioxidants which help to fight dark spots and over time, regulate an uneven skintone.

For speedy application

Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Sun Defense Stick SPF50, £15.

Instant armoury with all the intense moisturising of Arden’s Eight-Hour Cream without being heavy or oily. A handy essential.

For banishing oily skin

Chantecaille SPF50 PA Anti-Glycation Primer, £79.

Available from the end of June Perfect for keeping oiliness at bay, this water-resistant formula absorbs quickly to produce a matte finish which works both under or over foundation.

For a bronzed glow

St Tropez SPF50 High Protection For Face With Tan Enhancer, £15.

Just the thing for those who want protection but still covet a golden tan, this smooth cream stimulates the body’s melanin production (the skin’s natural colour chemical), creating a light glow over time

For parched skin

Neil’s Yard Wild Rose Daily Moisture SPF30, £23.50.

This weightless cream contains a mineral sun filter and absorbs easily, leaving a soft, matte finish. It provides a flawless base for your make-up – while rosehip oil deeply hydrates dry patches.

For natural coverage

Kate Somerville SPF55 Serum Tinted Sunscreen, £44.

Cleverly combining foundation and high-level sun protection, this serum blends with any skintone to offer a light and natural look.
