Sun Protection - Gentle, Oil-Free Sunscreen
Protect your skin against the aging effects of sun damage with SPF sunscreens enriched with natural ingredients.
Whether you spend your days catching waves or meditating on the beach, hiking up the side of a mountain, or reading in a sunny spot in the park — there’s no question that a little sunshine helps to improve your mood and overall well-being.
However, as with most things, the benefits of sunshine are best enjoyed in moderation and you have to make sure that your skin is well protected. Clarins knows that it isn’t always practical to cover up and so we’ve developed broad-spectrum sunscreen products enriched with natural ingredients that don’t just help to look after your skin but nourish it too.
Clarins will always choose natural ingredients over chemical ones where they deliver the same level of effectiveness. This is a golden rule that is always followed when we design our products and this includes sunscreens. Our sun creams are enriched with carefully selected botanicals to ensure optimum care and protection.
So, whether you’re a surfer, a runner, a reader, or simply like to take short afternoon strolls, we offer the best sunscreens for the face and body.
When should I use sunscreen?
Many people make the mistake of believing that they should only wear sunblock when they are going to expose themselves to the sun for long periods of time. Contrary to popular belief, sunscreen should be a staple in every daily beauty routine, whether that’s as part of your moisturizer or an added step. Even if you aren’t going to be directly in the sun, it’s essential that you protect your skin from the early signs of aging that are a result of sun damage. Just a few minutes in the sun can have an impact and you should wear a sunscreen of at least SPF 30 every day.
It’s important that you reapply sunscreen every two hours or immediately after you swim or shower.
What type of sunscreen should I wear?
At Clarins, we know that there’s no “one-sunscreen-fits-all” option and we approach the development of our sun protection in the same way we do all of our other products. Our Sunscreen Body SPF 30 and Dry Touch Facial Sunscreen SPF 30 are the perfect addition to your daily skincare routine. Enriched with antioxidants and combined with natural ingredients like baobab, senna, and olive tree extracts, this is the ideal sunscreen for everyday use. Our new sun pollution complex helps lock out harmful UVA/UVB rays that can result in sunspots and wrinkles.
SPF 30 isn’t the answer for a long day on the beach, at the pool, or even mowing the lawn. We have specifically formulated our Sunscreen Body Lotion Spray SPF 50+ for long days in the sun, along with our Dry Touch Facial Sunscreen SPF 50+. Apply regularly throughout the day for protected, hydrated skin. Plane tree, senna, baobab, olive tree, and pea extracts help protect skin and moisture-rich aloe vera extract soothes and softens skin even while you’re in the sun. The new sun pollution complex helps to lock out UVA/UVB rays and tangerine, orange, blackcurrant, peony and sandalwood extract mean that you’ll smell delicious while you’re basking in the sun.
Your skin is the canvas to your soul and at Clarins, we do everything in our power to protect it. We have formulated the best sunblocks for everyday use that offer nourishment, care, and protection against the sun’s ageing effects, all at the same time.
