The Sun Screen: Epionce Ultra Shield Lotion SPF 50+, £40.50

One of the biggest rules in looking after your face is using sun protection on a daily basis. You don't even need to be in the sun, UVA (which cause ageing) are active even on grey days. As well as minimising your risk of getting skin cancer, using SPF on top of your usual moisturiser will give you added protection and minimise signs of ageing. While many SPF's are white in colour and can leave residue on your skin, this one has been designed to be more practical. It glides onto the skin smoothly making it easier to apply your make-up on top and because it's water resistant you don't need to worry about topping up.

The Protector: Clinique Dark Spot Defence, £26

One of the biggest skin complaints from Asian women is dark spots and facial discolouration. Spending time in the sun can increase these risks which is why its' so important to take action before you go outside. Clinique's new Even Better Dark Spot Defense SPF45 is a 100% non-chemical, oil-free sunscreen which provides high-level UVA / UVB protection. Its light consistency makes it ideal for all skin tones and silky feel ensures it feels more like a pleasure to apply, rather than a protector.
