Check out our quick tips on how to find the best sunscreen for faces and look after your skin in more ways than one.

How to choose the best sunscreen for your face

Like the rest of the skin on your body, your facial skin is exposed to damaging environmental influences such as the sun’s rays, the cold and air pollution.

But, it is considerably thinner and more sensitive than the skin on your body. This means that it needs a lot of protection and care

Follow our tips on the best sunscreen for faces across three of the most common skin types:

1. Normal skin

NIVEA SUN Protect & Light Feel Daily Face Veil SPF 30 has a moisturising, non-greasy formula that provides SPF 30 protection against sun damage and premature aging.

With no solid particles this veil is instantly absorbed into the skin, making it ideal for wearing under makeup.

2. Oily or combination skin

NIVEA’s Daily Essentials Light Moisturising Day Cream is enriched with ocean mineral and Hydra IQ.

These hydrating ingredients help to refresh your skin with light moisture and protect it from sun damage with SPF 30+.

3. Dry or sensitive skin

NIVEA‘s Q10 Plus Anti-Wrinkle Energising Day Cream SPF15 works in harmony with your delicate skin to:

  • Fight wrinkles with Q10 and creatine
  • Prevent the sun’s rays from creating new wrinkles with SPF15 and UVA protection

Remember too, that your skin often needs more protection when you’re on holiday. Plus, even though all NIVEA Sun products are suitable for your face, your skin will thank you for using specific sun care for your face.
