Sun creams: which brand to choose? Preference is individual. A better brand cannot be established a priori. A distinction must be made in terms of texture, fragrance, time in which you tan.
The new sun products are absorbed immediately, leaving no film on the skin. They range from dry gels to light emulsions, from super-fine milks to nebulizer sprays. Some products are in biphasic form, that is formed by an oily part and an aqueous one: shaking the bottle creates a refreshing mist that invites reapplication.
There is no shortage of more full-bodied creams, suitable for very dry skin or for arid and moisture-free climates, such as the mountains.
To remember is that the sun protection does not change according to the consistency: what matters is the SPF filter and not whether it is formulated in milk, gel, oil or cream.

With solar exposure, the spots on the face risk to increase, even if we protect ourselves adequately. If you are subject to hyperpigmentation, know that some cosmetic companies have created specific protections that protect both from UV rays and visible light: the latter, in fact, helps to increase the formation of sunspots.
These are sunscreens that they do not avoid tanning on the face, but they help regulate sun-induced melanin production, thanks to active ingredients that correct irregular pigmentation. These sunscreens are also suitable for those with drug-induced photosensitivity or those at risk of melasma for hormonal reasons (contraceptive pill and pregnancy, above all).
