Michelle Kinsella, award-winning Make-Up Artist, knows what’s good for your skin. She has the following advice for The Couch followers:
SPF is something I get asked about a LOT particularly in summer when we have a few really nice days. A lot of Factor 50 products for your face can be quite thick and white and actually result in a flashback when photographed so your face ends up looking ridiculously white in photos!
This Factor 50 from one of my faves, La Roche Posay, is a fantastic SPF to wear either alone or under makeup. It’s paraben free, fragrance free and pretty lightweight compared to other factor 50 products. It absorbs into skin pretty quick which means it doesn’t effect your makeup application and it doesn’t cause the dreaded flashback in photos. I wear this (nearly) every day, all year round but you can drop to a factor 30 during winter if you wish.
Then for my body I LOVE another French Pharmacy Brand, Bioderma Photoderm Bronz SPF 50.
I’m pretty pale without tan on and can burn pretty easily so for me this is the best option ~ it allows me to tan without burning and gives a beautiful glow to my skin.
I also love Biodermas Photoderm SPF 50 ‘kid’ for my little one year old girl. It’s a lotion in spray form and like all Bioderma products it’s also paraben free, fragrance free and suitable for sensitive skin.
Be safe in the sun and don’t burn!
Love Michelle xx
