Luxury sunscreens are worth the money and here’s why…
You’ve probably asked yourself “are luxury sunscreens really worth the money?”. Good question. Put simply, you get what you pay for and they’re worth every penny. Cheap sunscreens might do the trick if you’re not very active, but when you’re always on the go, working out, or playing sports, they just won’t do. You need a sunscreen that’s specifically designed for sports that you won’t find in your local supermarket.
Awarded the best SPF for sports in The Attracta Beauty Awards 2021, Sports HAI SPF 50 High Protection is a sports player’s dream). So, let’s find out why you should invest in a luxury sunscreen…
Luxury sunscreens provide deep hydration
Cheap sunscreens typically only contain the very basic ingredients needed to protect you from the sun, whereas luxury sunscreen formulas go above and beyond to keep you hydrated. Choosing a sunscreen with deeply hydrating ingredients is a top priority as skin regularly exposed to the sun will lose moisture and essential oils.
It’s especially important for those with active lifestyles or big on sports who spend more time outside during the summer months as you’ll produce more sweat in the heat, and as a result, you’ll lose more essential fluids. If you’re a swimmer, you may have noticed your skin becomes a lot dryer from regular sun exposure combined with chlorine, a natural irritant that strips the skin of natural oils that keep it moisturised and healthy.
Sports HAI SPF 50 High Protection contains glycerin and lactic acid which both act as a humectant, a substance that allows the skin to retain moisture to increase hydration and relieve dryness. The unique formula also includes aloe barbadensis leaf juice to further hydrate and soothe the skin. Happy skin is hydrated skin, and in return, it’ll thank you with a glowing complexion - a very fair exchange.
They can be a 2-in-1 tinted sunscreen
When using a cheap sunscreen, your sunscreen and skin base are two separate steps. You have to apply sunscreen then go over it with a tinted moisturiser or foundation, which can feel heavy on the skin and uncomfortable during strenuous activities. Tinted sunscreens can cut down your skincare routine without any compromise.
Sunscreen is only fully effective when it’s topped up throughout the day, which is almost impossible if you’re wearing a full face of makeup. A tinted sunscreen gives easy access to reapply anywhere, anytime - perfect for those who never stop moving.
Sports HAI SPF 50 High Protection is a tinted sunscreen that lets your skin breathe whilst providing beautiful coverage, so you can continue to perform at your best whilst looking your best. Your skin will feel as light and fresh as you do.
Non-sticky, water-resistant formulas
We’ve all thought about ditching sunscreen because of the stickiness many of them leave behind. We have a love-hate relationship with sunscreen. On one hand, it protects our skin from sun damage, and on the other, it leaves the skin seriously sticky. But we’re here to tell you it doesn’t have to be this way.
Cheap sunscreens tend to be on the heavier side and leave a sticky, oily layer on the skin. Sunscreens that leave your skin feeling greasy are typically water-resistant and contain ingredients that help to stick the sunscreen to your skin for longer - hence the stickiness. But a water-resistant sunscreen is a must if you’re involved in water sports or any activity that requires heavy sweating.
The good news is that luxury sunscreens have mastered non-sticky, water-resistant formulas. Sports HAI SPF 50 High Protection uses a lightweight formula that’s easily absorbed by the skin and water-resistant without any stickiness, so you can spend more time playing sports and less time being irritated by sticky skin.
