Should be in Living Abroad probably, but I can't find it... avoiding raisin face if you live in the tropics
What's the best daily facial sunscreen if you live somewhere really hot? I've been using clinique cityblock spf40 for ages, I've never loved it but can't find anything comparably strong that feels any lighter to put on. And even though I'm pretty good about using it, I'm still getting sunspots and loads of fine lines - I don't know if I should be slapping on more in the morning, but I don't want my face to look chalky.
And do you put anything on your arms/ hands daily? My arms and face are 2 totally different colours. It's a great look.
I live on the South Coast (of England!) and do actually have the same problem even in this weather. I suspect it's probably more windburn than sun. I seem to have the sort of skin that will tan through any protection.
I've tried the No 7 stuff to treat brown spots but not had much success. I think creams are supposed to have retinol to be effective, but presumably that's treating the after effects rather than preventing it happening.
Thanks, I'm sure a hat would help, but I'm never in the sun for long enough to make it seem worth it - plus I don't have a good hat face, I think.
What SPF is the La Roche? Does it absorb easily? I need something designed for every day use, but still high sun protection. I've tried the kind of sunscreen you'd use on the beach before, but it takes ages to rub in, and feels too heavy.
Before you could only get La Roche Posay in France but you can get it on Boots website now I think. It comes in several SPFs. I think I've got a factor 40 one and it is good. Very light and non greasy.
