Healthy glow: 10 best face sunscreens

Save face this summer with our pick of the best sunscreens to keep your complexion peachy in the heat

We love the sunshine, but we don't love what it does to our skin – uneven pigmentation, premature ageing and poor texture.

We've tried a range of sunscreens specially formulated for the face to try and combat damage. From Soltan's good-value version up to Natura Bisse's seriously luxurious offering, there's a product for all skin types and budgets.
