Guys need to wear sunscreen too
From my experience it’s hard enough to get guys to wear sunscreen every day in summer, let alone now that we are in winter. The guys I know commonly complain that sunscreen feels too thick and greasy on their skin. Often it’s because they haven’t chosen a sunscreen that’s tailored to their skin type. Guys just don’t have the patience to test a few products in the search for a sunscreen texture that they will like.
So to help our male friends and partners protect their skin as much as they should, here are some products I recommend.
For guys with combination or oily skin, it’s essential to choose a formula that is matte, light weight and fast absorbing. Try:
- Neutrogena Oil Free Moisture SPF15
- Nivea Sun Spray SPF15+
- Dermalogica Solar Defense Booster SPF 30
Guys with normal to dry skin can afford to combine their sunscreen with a moisturising base. Try:
- Nivea Men Protective Moisturiser SPF15
- Ego QV Man Moisturise SPF 30+
- Ultraceuticals Protective Moisturiser (untinted) SPF30+
All these products are just as good for girls to use, even though some are labelled for men.
