UV rays and heat can all have damaging effects on the skin, so it is important to remember to use high SPF products keep it safe and well protected. SPF makeup can help to add an extra boost of protection for your skin.

These should not be used on their own without SPF, as they will not give your skin enough protection to shield from UV rays, but they are great to use on top of your sun cream to just give it a little extra boost.
