Luxury facial sunscreens protect your face from damage by the sun, but have added ingredients to improve your skin at the same time. Many are formulated to absorb quickly and work well under makeup and act almost like a primer. Ingredients include rosehip seed oil, vitamin E, lemon peel oil, and green tea. Some sunscreens are unscented while others have a light scent or are available in multiple scents. Many formulations are meant to be lightweight and therefore work well for oily or sensitive skin, but others are meant to be more moisturizing. SPF protection typically ranges from 30-50 SPF and brands use both physical and chemical sunscreens.
