Whether it's raining, cloudy or sunny and whether you're inside or outside - UV rays have a damaging effect on your skin 365 days a year. Keep skin protected and younger looking by using a day cream with a SPF (Sun Protection Factor) of at least 30 during the day, everyday. Discover more

A day moisturiser or day cream rated SPF 30 or above is always the last step of your daytime skincare routine. Apply a generous amount of your day moisturiser with SPF after cleansing, toning and exfoliating (and possibly a serum, booster or treatment) and before applying any makeup. This will keep your skin well protected against harmful UV rays throughout the day. Planning to hit the gym or go for a swim? It won't hurt to reapply your SPF 30 moisturiser during the day.
Paula’s Choice SPF products have an SPF rating of 30 or above and come in a variety of textures and finishes: whether you want a rich cream or a light and non-greasy texture. They don't leave a white cast on your skin, as other sunscreen products sometimes do. As a general rule, all products work best when they suit your skin type, so keep this in mind when choosing your moisturiser with SPF 30 or above.
Synthetic sun filters
If you are looking for a moisturiser with SPF for oily skin or combination skin, then we recommend one that contains synthetic sunscreen ingredients. Synthetic sunscreens absorb the UV radiation in your skin and work best once absorbed into your skin. Apply your SPF moisturiser approximately fifteen minutes before you go outside.
Mineral sun filters
Do you have sensitive skin? Then we recommend a mineral sunscreen. If a day moisturiser is a mineral sunscreen it contains zinc oxide or titanium dioxide to absorb, reflect and scatter harmful UV rays.
Synthetic and mineral sun filters both have unique advantages. The performance of both is equally good and they are both equally safe. Read more about the difference between mineral and synthetic sunscreen ingredients.
