Today’s weather is a stunner across most of the country, we hope it’s prompted you to reach for some sunscreen? Note to self: the new national standard across New Zealand and Australia for sunscreen has jumped from SPF30 to SPF 50. The number raised to prevent confusion and sun burn, as most of us don’t apply enough. The directed dose set down by dermatologists and formulators being a golf-ball size for the body, and a tablespoon for the face? So back to the reason for this blog, Estee Lauder’s Daywear Advanced Multi-Protection Anti-Oxidant UV Defense SPF 50, hit counters this week – with its made-over formula, and we have been raving about it in the office. It ticks all our fussy-sunscreen-demand boxes. Non-greasy, offers heavy duty UVA (that would be those ageing rays) protection (avobenzone) is packed with vitamins C and E for fighting off free radical damage your skin is always going to get under the sun, and the glycerine and hyaluronic acid keep skin feeling hydrated all day. If there could be anything else great to say, it works well under foundation. Think of this as anti-ageing protection – at its best.
