We take beach beauty very seriously here at Navy and there is nothing more important than sunscreen. It seems like the gaping hole in the o-zone layer basically sits right above Bondi Beach, so Aussies need to wear at least an SPF 50+ at all times (even in winter).
Here are our picks for the best sun protection on the market.
If you're passionate about buying all-Australian then look no further than Skinstitut Age Defence 50+. It's cheap enough to slather it all over without worry. The ingredients are high quality and won't leave your skin congested or dry it out.
Dermalogica solar defense booster is used in addition to your daily moisturiser. Mix it with your facial and body creams to add some extra oomph in the SPF department. It's thick but not too greasy and will keep you safe from yucky UVA and B rays.
La Roche Posay Anthelios 50+ is another winner. It's a very dry formulation which makes it perfect for the face. The fine tipped nozzle dispenses the cream little by little which means you'll avoid any slip-ups causing you to ruin your new black one piece.
If you're more interested in spending money on frosé than sunscreen this summer, then look no further than good Nivea Sun Ultra Sport SPF 50+ spray. One coat of this and you'll be protected from head to toe.
