Gone are the days when the thought of applying sunscreen on your face makes you squirm. The new generation facial sunscreens are lightweight and matte, leaving your face well-moisturised. Let us share with you our 3 favourite sunscreens that we cannot live without!
1. YSL OR ROUGE UV Protection SPF50/PA+++ (SGD$179)

2. LA ROCHE-POSAY Anthelios XL SPF 50+ Ultra Light (SGD$46.90, 50 ml)
Sun protection is our essential step 5 from our #FreeFromAcne routine! Did you know that over-exposure to the sun rays actually weakens the skin barrier, causing it to lose moisture and producing more sebum instead, leading to more acne. Use our Anthelios XL Ultra Light Fluid for the highest protection with the lightest texture and prevent your acne from being worsened by the harmful UV rays! – credits @larocheposayau – #lrpsg #effaclar #oilyskin #moisturizer #acne #skincare #beauty #beautysg #igsg #dermatologist #pimple #freefromacne #skincare #suncare #uvrays #sunscreen #sunblock
