The best SPF for every day use…

The Skin Nerd Skingredients Skin Shield SPF 50

Wearing an SPF is probably one of the most important things we can do for the future of our skin. Why? Because it protects you from UV rays, which cause wrinkles, pigmentation, loss of firmness and dullness. We need to wear an SPF because it has been proven to prevent these visible signs of ageing. Do we really need to use them? YES, YES, YES. And YES, YES, YES, get the message?

My favourite SPF and one of my HERO products is The Skin Nerd’s own brand Skingredients Skin Shield SPF 50. I have tried many different ones over the years, I don’t like it when they feel too heavy/greasy on my skin. I am loving this product, it’s a far cry from the white pasty looking SPF 50 I have used in the past. It is a physical/mineral moisturiser protecting from UVA/UVB rays, infrared, HEV/blue light from computers and screens. It is not only a broad-spectrum SPF, it moisturises, it’s your primer if you want and it’s got a peachy tint, dewy finish, non-greasy and suitable for all skin types. I use it every day and highly recommend it.

I don’t like to wear makeup everyday so this is great, it leaves a lovely glow on the skin and I wouldn’t say it gives coverage per say but it does refine the appearance of my skin. I just wear this and some cream blush daily and it does the trick. Have a look at the video on Facebook @ Kate Murphy Beauty Therapy to see how brilliant it is.
