Ok, so the sun really has only just shown it’s face, but don’t be fooled into thinking that just because it hasn’t been around for a while, it can’t possibly do any damage now. Well, the truth is that sun is responsible for most of our wrinkles, so upping your daily SPF is a must to keep them at bay. While many sun ranges do high protection for the face, they are far more ‘holiday’ products than beauty products and not necessarily practical as a base for your make up or every day use. Becca Mineral SPF 30 Primer is a protection/beauty hybrid; light in consistency, so perfect for under cosmetics, but giving a high enough protection factor to actually ward off harmful UVA and UVB rays. Because it uses minerals to protect, it’s good for sensitive skin types too, who often struggle to find something that doesn’t cause irritation. Oil free, and with the ability to help your make up last longer, it’s a brilliant multi-tasking buy.
