With the current heatwave, it is advisable to also keep an eye on your skin when out in the sun. Here's a look at a few beauty products that can offer protection from harsh UV rays.

Serum + sunscreen

Coupled with a silky texture and a heavy dose of glow, Ultra Violette’s Queen Screen SPF 50+ Luminising Serum Skinscreen is renowned for its milky, melt-into-your-skin finish that acts as the perfect base for makeup.

To be used on normal to dry skin, Queen is more like a serum than a cream, effortlessly slotting into your skincare routine and imparting broad-spectrum SPF50+ protection with a subtle rose scent.

Use three full droppers-worth, and while it might feel like too much, there’s actually lot of surface area that you need to cover (don’t forget your ears!).

Lightweight protection

Cuura’s Brightening Sunscreen is a hybrid , lightweight, halal, broad- spectrum sunscreen SPF 50+ PA++++ enriched with plant extracts to provide optimum protection and enhance skin brightening.

The combination of these powerful antioxidants and age-defying botanicals provides effective sun protection against UVA, UVB and UVR rays (SPF 50 +PA++++), in a lightweight, moisturising and non-greasy product which leaves no white cast.

It doesn’t clog your pores, making it suitable to be used every day, on its own, or as a final step of your daytime skincare routine.

Tinted glow

Supergoop!’s bestselling glowy tinted sunscreen Glowscreen SPF 40 welcomes a new shade: Dawn, which gives your skin a pink pearl glow when applied, hydrating skin and priming it for makeup with a dewy finish.

Upon application, this multitasking formula results in an instant glow-up, imbuing your complexion with radiance without leaving visible glitz or glitter on your skin.

With SPF 40 and broad spectrum protection from UV rays and infrared radiation, the product keeps you safe from the sun while also helping filter blue light from tech, and it’s to be used by all skin types.

It also provides nourishing skin-loving benefits such as hyaluronic acid and vitamin B5, a hydration cocktail that boosts the skin’s water levels and leaves your skin feeling soft and supple, and niacinamide helps reduce the appearance of pores and skin tone.

Boosting skin’s beauty

Designed for everyday application, Shiseido Urban Environment Triple Beauty Suncare Emulsion SPF 50+ PA++++ has a light oil-free texture, and contains antioxidants and hyaluronic acid, which aim at leaving your skin feeling moisturised and looking vibrant.

It contains Sun Dual Care, a formula invented thanks to a century of skin research by the brand, which helps to shield the skin against air pollution and other elements that can lead to dull or dry skin.

The brand claims that this is the first sunscreen that helps protect against UV rays while converting a portion of sunlight into beneficial light to boost your skin’s beauty.

Spirulina Energy Essence – an ancient blue-green algae that has thrived in lakes for over three billion years – containing unique photosynthetic properties beneficial for skincare while the exclusive SuperVeil-UV 360 technology enables UV skin protection from all directional angles.

Moisturising formula

The special edition Anessa Perfect UV Sunscreen Skincare Milk (in Doraemon design) is formulated with “Auto Booster Technology” that reacts to sweat, water, heat, and moisture in the air to form a stronger UV-blocking film.

It also contains a plant-derived blend of moisturising and beautifying ingredients that prevent dryness damage caused by UV rays and provide moisture to the skin.

The product combines a powerful UV blocking effect with skin care benefits, which also promotes translucent, beautiful glowing skin.

It is resistant to rubbing and mask wearing, lightweight and easy to use in daily life, and for that feel-good factor, the company is committed to environmentally friendly product manufacturing and uses paper packaging made from responsibly sourced wood resources.
