UVB and UVA ray exposure can be very dangerous and harmful to the skin. UVB rays are the main rays responsible for damage and tanning. UVA rays are primarily responsible for reduced immune defences, which can cause formation of skin cancers. They are also responsible for hyperpigmentation, fine lines, wrinkles and irregular skintone. The reason this product is one of the most effective for sun protection is because it protects against UVB and UVA rays.
I’m one of those people that has a severe hate for sun cream, due to the thick greasy texture. Because of this, I don’t like putting it on my oily skin at all and my face ends up burnt. I realise I have been in need of an SPF for a long time and thanks to La Roche-Posay, I have one in the form of the Anthelios XL Dry-Touch Gel-Cream*! I am a huge fan of La Roche-Posay so I knew I’d be in love with this before I even put it on my face!
It comes out of the tube quite quickly and I use a little above a pea size amount for my whole face. It applies really well and sinks in so easily as I rub it in, which I think is a big difference from other products that contain SPF. It has that slight suncream smell but it’s not strong at all, you can’t smell it at all when it’s on your face. The gel cream feels so light and it actually mattifies my skin when I put it on, which is fantastic as I don’t want to be walking around with a shiny face! It has 50+ SPF so this is amazing for your face not getting burnt, this has become a daily product of mine.
