What is the right sunscreen for me?

If you're about to start packing for your summer vacation and aren't sure what sunscreen to bring, read on for Clarins' tips on choosing the best sun protection for you.

1. Choose the right sun protection for your skin tone

When it comes to the sun, not all skin is made equal, and different SPFs are required. Skin types are categorized based on their sensitivity to the sun and their resulting phototype. The lighter the phototype, the more sensitive skin will be to the sun. If you have very fair skin, always reach for SPF 50+ products and avoid spending too long in the sun. If you have light skin that tans, or olive skin, SPF 30 should be sufficient. Clarins has developed a range of high performance sun protection products to offer you the very best sunscreen whatever your phototype. In each product, the protective filters are combined with extracts of plants chosen for their ability to protect skin from the signs of UV-related aging.

2. Choose your formula

Clarins covers all bases and has developed a range of different ultra-appealing formulas to make applying your sunscreen a treat. Whether you're looking for protection for the face or body, you'll find something to suit you. If you don't like a greasy feel on your face, try the DRY TOUCH FACIAL SUNSCREEN SPF 30 or the SPF 50+ version. Its delicate formula is fast-absorbing with a matte finish.
