With the Summer season still upon us, the sun shines even brighter and hotter as the hot seasons are still upon us, one of the first and foremost forms of skin protection and nourishment comes in the form of sunscreen. As children we are constantly advised to wear sunscreen, and as adults it has now become a necessity to protect the skin from the harsh UV rays of the sun, which can cause serious damage over time. Prolonged exposure to the sun or enduring the humid conditions of summer brings along, sunscreen is an essential that must not be skipped to keep the skin fresh, nourished, and hydrated, especially in the Middle East. Perle Magazine looks at four of the best sunscreens to help take care of the skin:

Niveabeauty-1c

Offered in three different varieties – Nivea White, Protect and Moisture, Bronze – Nivea’s sunscreen range caters to the individual needs of the users. Nivea White helps with reduction of skin pigmentation and results in a lighter and sun-protected skin, the Nivea Protect and Moisture provides intensive protection and long-lasting moisture, and the Bronze is made with a formula that results in sun protection and results in a natural and even tan.

Hawaiian Tropicbeauty-2a

Perhaps one of the most popular brand for both tanning and sun-protection, Hawaiian Tropic offers an extensive range of products with UVA and UVB protection in different SPF levels to suit different users and skin types. Recommended by The Skin Cancer Foundation International, the sunscreens vary in application method and are even available for just the face or body and add a weightless and silky finish.

Coppertone

From sports-friendly sun-protection products, to beauty, and even on-the-go, Coppertone has made sure to cover all aspects of activities that require sun-exposure to prevent damage. Even offering ‘after-sun’ products to help the skin recover, Coppertone’s products are suitable for all users and even has the Coppertone Water Babies especially designed for children, and are available in different SPF levels as well and also offer UVA and UVB protection. The lightweight formula allows  comfortably reapply sunscreen if needed without it making the skin feel heavy.

Neutrogenabeauty-1b

With three different SPF level – 30, 45, 55 – the Dry-Touch Sunscreen from Neutrogena is suitable is for all skin types and leaves the skin with a soft, clean and not-sticky feeling but offers broad-spectrum protection from sun damage. Using specialised formula such as Avobenzone or the Helioplex® Technology, Neutrogena sunscreens protect the skin against the damaging UV rays and keep the skin protected while looking fresh.

All products are available in Bahrain at supermarkets and pharmacies.
