Everything You Need To Know About Skinstitut's latest SPF


The new Skinstitut Face The Day SPF50 is a highly functional, oil-free face and body sunscreen designed to provide weightless protection, whilst helping to condition the skin. Now that we've got some extreme heat on it's way, it's time we learn a little more about our SPF and the importance of wearing it daily... come rain, hail or shine!

What Is Skinsitut Face The Day SPF 50?

Face The Day is a high-protection, oil-free sunscreen that has been designed to dry quickly to a matte texture for an un-detectable finish. If this doesn't make you want to add to cart immediately, I don't know what will because don't we all just hate the greasy, white finish that most sunscreens leave. *shudders at the thought of ever using a greasy spf again*

Actually, if that hasn't persuaded you already I'm pretty sure this will...

Not only is the Face The Day SPF50+ UV absorbing, meaning it helps to prevent premature skin ageing, including wrinkles, fine lines and pigmentation caused by the sun, it is also blue light blocking. Yes, that means it helps to protect against skin stress caused by digital pollution, which can lead to free radical damage, and a visibly dull complexion. Yup that's right, all our screen time is leading to poor skin health, so let's get protecting!
