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

While you should always use SPF as a base to ensure you are giving your skin the highest level of protection possible, many brands now have many SPF makeup products to make your beauty routine that little bit easier. 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 give it an extra boost of defence.
