It’s International Day of Happiness! Smile! The sun is shining – or it will be soon, trust me! Spring is in the air, and that means time to look at protecting your skin from the sunshine.
Yes, I know, Vitamin D is important, but red is not a good look, and those wrinkles the sun causes are also not on trend. The first of the sunscreens to land on my desk this season comes from REN and is in sunny yellow packaging.
The REN Clean Screen Mineral SPF30 Mattifying Face Sunscreen is a 22 per cent zinc oxide mineral sunscreen, and will protect you from the UVA and UVB rays of the sun, as well as blue light pollution.
It forms a physical barrier to help reflect the sun’s rays. Passion fruit extract supports the skin’s natural defense against those free radicals, and rice starch gives that mattified look.
REN has created one of the cleanest sunscreens available, thanks to the mineral UV filter, increasingly cleaner packaging, and the skin-ffriendly ingredients. The company is committed to continuing to monitor new scientific research and environmental guidelines as part of its Clean To Planet pledge.
It’s a very happy product, right?!
It feels good, but I’d wear it over a moisturiser if you have any tendency towards dry or dehydrated skin.
