Rain or shine, winter or summer, we all need to be wearing sunscreen every single day.
It doesn’t take a day out at the beach for you to be subject to the sun’s harmful ultraviolet rays: UVA and UVB. While the effect of UVB is easily seen and felt as it’s responsible for causing sunburns, UVA rays, on the other hand, penetrates deeper into the skin and causes long-term effects including wrinkles and premature skin ageing.
Yet, many people are still pretty adamant to slather on some sunscreen as part of their beauty routine due to the greasy shine and white smears it leaves behind. For someone who struggles with oily skin, I dread applying sunscreen before heading out the door as it leaves a sticky finish, clogs my pores and worst of all, makes my skin look so greasy as though I’d layer some olive oil on it.
Thankfully, beauty brands are continuously improving their formula to put an end to those common annoyances. Whether you’re a fan of powder sunscreen or prefer a matte finish, these sunscreens won’t leave your skin suffocated or shiny.
