5 Sun Care Products To Protect Every Part Of Your Body

Time to gear up on some head-to-toe protection when out in the sun.

By Chris Ong      29 June 2021

The sun’s very “enthu” these days, and so should you when it comes to defending yourself against the harmful UV rays. While most of us would know of the more common sunscreen items for the face and body that we either use on a daily basis or for when we are spending prolonged time for work, sporting or play activity outdoors, there are suncare products out there that are specially developed for all the other parts of our body. Try these 5 here (along with your usual sunscreen) to make sure you are totally armoured up to deal with that fireball in the sky.

SPF25 Anti-Pigmentation Hand Cream, $32.50, ultrasun

The one part of the body that people use most often but forget about while out braving the rays? The hands. Yes, your hands do show damage caused by the sun’s rays as well as signs of age if you do not care for them enough. Luckily, this product’s not only made to protect your digits and palms – it’s marketed as a moisturising, anti-ageing and anti-pigmentation hand cream – and, it’s also safe to use. How safe? It’s free from SLS, fragrance, PEG, parabens, glutens and phthalates, and is also hypoallergenic, non-comedogenic, vegan and suitable for pregnant women, too.

Here’s another super useful product from the ultrasun brand; this one’s made for the face as well as scalp. It’s a convenient spray that you can spritz all over your countenance and also on your scalp, parting and hairline (unless you are wearing some form of headgear, your head’s a prime target for the sun, too). And, since it is lightweight, non-greasy, fast-absorbing, quick-drying and transparent, you can wear this over any facial or cosmetic products and top up on this sunscreen spray whenever you need to. Another plus: It contains Infraguard, the brand’s antioxidant complex that fights against light-induced skin ageing, and other effects of blue and infrared light on skin.

Sugar Tinted Lip Treatment Sunscreen SPF15, $36, fresh

Watch your mouth when you’re out there, and by that, we mean keeping your lips moist, soft and guarded against the sun. Yes, there’s such a thing as sunscreen for your lips, and if you do not fear a little colour on them, you can choose this lippie in rose, coral or original (wear them light with one swipe, or build them up in intensity if you wanna). What’s more, these balms are a treat for your kisser, since they are infused with nourishing precious oils and moisture-preserving sugar with a citrus scent.

Sun Sensitive Face and Body Sun Protection Cream for Kids SPF50, $35, Lancaster

We did mention that suncare products are for every body, and some of the most significant members of your family body are the children. This cream’s designed for kids out at play – it’s lightweight and gets absorbed fast, so you can spray this water-resistant milky formula on them of the short attention span, quick and easy. It’s created with the brand’s innovative Full Light Technology to offer UVB and UVA protection through its naturally-derived Sunsicalm Complex and SPF 50 (so you can be assured your LO is well-guarded) and even has an anti-sand feature (so grime and dirt doesn’t stick on as much) and is fragrance-free (so those with sensitive skin can wear this, too).
