Stock up on SPF

It’s age old advice but protecting your skin against sun damage is one of the single most effective ways to get glowing skin for life. UVA rays cause premature ageing and it’s much easier to prevent the damage rather than fix. If you’re looking for a light coverage foundation that will protect you against the sun and pollution, we recommend this Chantecaille Just Skin Anti Smog Tinted Moisturiser SPF 15.
