Sun’s out: Our top sunscreens picks for men

You’ve probably heard this before, but sun protection is a non-negotiable in your skincare routine. In fact, everyone should be wearing sunscreen regularly, regardless of their sex or age. It not only protects your skin from sun damage, but also keeps it healthier and stronger, while preventing premature signs of ageing like dark spots and fine lines. Whether you spend a considerable part of your day outdoors or at a desk job (yes, you need sunscreen indoors too!), it is crucial to keep your skin healthy.

The right time to apply sunscreen is as the last step of your morning skincare routine. Once you’ve cleansed and moisturised your face, take your favourite sunscreen – ideally two fingers worth of quantity – and apply it all over your face and neck, gently massaging it in. If you’re spending your day under direct sunlight, make sure you reapply after every two to three hours to ensure maximum protection.

If you’ve been skipping sunscreen because you’re afraid it will give you a white cast or leave your skin greasy, we’ve got your back. As spring rolls in, here’s a roundup of our best lightweight, non-greasy sunscreens that deliver maximum protection, sans the white cast.
