As we all know, the Australian sun is harsh and can wreak havoc on your skin. Using sunscreen is vital, but while all over sunscreens are great for a day at the beach, they can be thick and greasy and well, pore-clogging. Your face needs special consideration and the right product! Not only is the skin on your face thinner and more sensitive, but it is also more frequently exposed to sunlight day to day. Using an everyday sunscreen will protect your face from harmful UV rays to keep you looking your youthful best as well as maintaining moisture levels. Read ahead as we have all the face sunscreens to suit every skin type and situation.
