My perfect Match | The Best SPF Products for Different Skin Types

Our last post covered the best moisturisers for different skin types, (have a read if you’re wanting a more in-depth explanation of different skin types) and today we will be looking at another extremely important aspect of your skincare routine, products with an SPF!

Using a product that contains an SPF is an absolute essential all year round, but especially in summer. By safeguarding your skin against damaging UV rays, your complexion will stay healthier, more plumped up and radiant for longer. Incorporating an SPF into your everyday skincare routine will also help to prevent premature ageing and hyper-pigmentation.

Choosing a product that best suits your skin and its needs will ensure you get the most out of it and the best level of protection possible.

The Best SPF Products for Different Skin Types

For Dry Skin

asap moisturising daily defence SPF 50+

Designed for the harsh Australian Climate, the asap moisturising daily defense delivers essential moisturising actives, whilst ensuring skin is protected from harmful UVA and UVB rays.

Also containing Hyaluronic Acid, which deeply hydrates and promotes skin elasticity, it’s the perfect daily moisturiser for those who suffer with dry or dehydrated skin.


For Oily Skin

Dermalogica Solar Defense Booster SPF 50

For those with especially oily skin, applying a sunscreen alongside your regular moisturiser can cause the skin to become oily or even to breakout.

The light-weight formula of Dermalogica’s Solar Defense Booster means it’s perfect for oily skin. It can be used alone or mixed into your regular moisturiser or foundation without impacting the quality or feel.

The booster itself has an SPF of 50, and contains both Grape Seed and Green Tea Extracts, which are brimming with Vitamins C and E to keep the skin healthy, hydrated and supremely protected.

For Dull Skin

Zelens Daily Defence Sunscreen

The SPF 30 in the Zelens Daily Defence Sunscreen  is delivered through a unique system, which has organic UV filters in silica-based capsules, to help give that weightless feeling on the complexion, whilst still offering intense protection.

Vitamin C is also included to help brighten the skin, making it the perfect daily addition for those who suffer with dull or lacklustre skin.


For Mature Skin

Clinique Smart Custom Moisturiser SPF 15

Formulated using Clinique’s Smart™ technology, the Smart SPF 15 Custom moisturiser is a fast-absorbing cream that minimises the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, whilst it strengthens the skin’s natural moisture barrier to reveal a refreshed and rejuvenated complexion.

The SPF 15 offers UVA and UVB protection to shield against environmental aggressors. As the Custom Moisturiser only contains an SPF of 15, it works perfectly beneath makeup that contains an SPF as an extra boost.

For Combination Skin

Alpha-H Essential Moisturiser SPF 30

The Alpha-H Essential Moisturiser is ideal for all skin types thanks to its gentle yet protective formulation.

Its formula is both non-comedogenic and non-whitening, meaning it won’t block your pores or leave a white cast behind on your skin. Thanks to its SPF 30 factor, it helps shield skin against both UVA and UVB rays, protecting the cells against free radical damage and premature ageing.

Because of its matte finish, it’s ideal for warm or humid days, when you want your complexion to look shine-free and perfected, it also works well as a primer underneath makeup.
