Sensitive Skin issues - Eczema v Sun Creams

Sensitive Skin issues Eczema and Sun Creams

Yesterday the sun was shining and that made me think about sun creams/lotions. We all know that sun protection is important but finding a brand suitable for my sensitive skin and eczema is not an easy task. The dilemma for me each year is whether to buy a natural ingredient sunscreen or a chemical one. I have had skin reactions from both types so I sit on the fence with this. Often my reason for purchase simply boils down to my budget at that time.

The only high street brand that does not bring me out in a rash is Garnier Ambre Solaire. My personal favourite from the range is the Light & Silky Milk. It really does what it says on the bottle. It is easily to apply and disappears into the skin with little effort. By the end of the day I do not get that sticky feeling that makes you want to head straight into the shower and exfoliate.

If you have a few more pennies in your pocket and want to try a natural sun cream I recommend Lavera Sun Care. From the range I have tried the sun cream for body, face and the shimmer after sun. I loved them all. The lotions have a nice fragrance, are easy to apply as not to heavy and disappear on the skin nicely. Another brand you could try is Green People. They have Scent free options which is helpful to those who have fragrance allergies. 

The other year I was on a beach holiday in Europe and I came out in a nasty rash. I can not be sure of the cause but the first thing I did was buy a new sun cream. I purchased Avene sun care in a local chemist. The lotion was light, easy to apply and no chalky residue.

Have you tried these brands? What did you think? What are your thoughts on natural ingredient sun protection? Do you have any recommendations for me?
