Hallelujah for make-up that means you don’t need to slather on a coat of sun cream. You know you should be wearing SPF every day. You know that. And yet, even the idea of it makes you throw your head back with infinite boredom, a deathly groan of “Why me?” Here is the answer. Opt for make-up that’s SPF 15 or higher, and apply liberally and evenly, then not only will your face look prettier, but (provided you take extra precautions in summer) it will prevent skin damage.
