Sun protection is ultra important – with harmful UVA and UVB rays increasing our risk of sun damage and skin cancer, it makes sense to offer a prevention to our skin rather than wait until we need a cure.
For years, I’ve been an advocate of sun safety after coming to my senses and realising how much I could irreversibly damage my skin if I didn’t take proper care of it in the sun. Just last year I started to wear the La Roche-Posay Anthelios XL Ultra Light Tinted Fluid SPF50+ daily underneath my regular makeup. Come rain or shine, my SPF will be applied as UVA and UVB rays can penetrate through even on the cloudiest of days.
A few months ago, I picked up the tinted fluid by accident on my monthly skincare shop and instantly fell in love with the healthy glow that it gave to my skin, all whilst delivering that important sun protection.
The fluid contains Mexoplex – a complex that contains Mexoryl SX (the La Roche-Posay brand was actually the first laboratory to use this) that provides a high broad spectrum sun protection against both UVA and UVB rays. As with the La Roche-Posay range, it also contains Thermal Spring Water.
As somebody who has ultra fair skin and hair, I tend to burn so easily in the sun so a high protection factor is essential for me. Anthelios products all have a high Persistent Pigment Darkening factor that offers one of the best protections against UVA offered by any brand in the world which is just incredible to say it’s just £17 from Boots!
Although sun protection is so, so important, I know people can often find it a hassle to add another step into their daily routine to apply an SPF which is why I love this product so much because it also acts as a perfect makeup base. It’s 100% hypoallergenic, non-comodogenic and has a high concentration of selected ingredients with Thermal Spring Water that makes it stand out head and shoulders above any other face SPF I’ve ever tried.
I can’t recommend this product enough. Try it out today and notice the difference in your skin.
