Thank You Farmer SPF roundup


These cult classic, high-factor sunscreens can help keep your skin healthy and glowing all season long. Here’s how to choose the best formula for your skin type…

We’ve all got the memo by now: The sun can wreak havoc on our skin. A dull complexion, fine lines, pigmentation, a drop in collagen and elastin production and a rise in cancer risk are all drawbacks of not wearing a well-formulated SPF.

Thankfully, the days of pore-clogging, cloying, sticky white sunscreens are gone. In their place we have lightweight formulas like Thank You Farmer SPF.

This range of three sunscreens pack a punch when it comes to nourishing and hydrating skin at the same time as shielding from harmful UVA and UVB rays. While all three boast a high factor SPF 50 and a PA rating of +++, which is the highest level you can get, each sunscreen will feel and mesh better with your skin depending on its texture, finish and ingredients.

Here’s the lowdown to help you find your perfect Thank You Farmer SPF pairing…

IF YOU HAVE… dry, dehydrated skin

The Korean beauty ethos values dewy, smooth skin. It makes sense then that they’re at the top of the market when it comes to crafting innovative, sunscreen formulas with skin-perfecting benefits.
Thank You Farmer’s Sun Project Water Sunscreen is specifically formulated for dry and dehydrated skin.

It banks on Bamboo Water to nourish and hydrate; Asiatic Pennywort Extract to soothe; and Phyto-Oligo to help cool sun-soaked skin and lock in hydration. When its humid outside sometimes even the driest of skin needs only a thin layer of moisture.

This hardworking SPF doubles up as a moisturiser and sunscreen in one. Plus, the sheer formula never leaves a white cast behind, making it the perfect shot of hydration for every skin tone.

IF YOU HAVE…oily, combination or problem skin

If you often get breakouts or are prone to a more oily complexion, it can be difficult to find a sunscreen that feels lightweight on skin and ultimately won’t clog pores when heat-induced sweat and sebum come into the mix.

Thank You Farmer’s Project Light Sun Essence is formulated to shield skin from the sun’s harmful rays without clogging pores or leaving any oily residue on the surface of your skin.
What’s more, it’s got Lotus Water, Soy Lipids and Purslane Extract to help protect and support the skin’s barrier which is often the cause of breakouts when it becomes weak or damaged.
This SPF sinks into skin and really feels weightless – it’s the ideal makeup base for a mattifying effect layered under foundation or wear it on clean skin for a velvety finish.

IF YOU HAVE…sensitive or reactive skin

While they’re meant to protect skin, many sunscreen formulas can actually irritate sensitive or redness-prone complexions. Thank You Farmer’s Safe Sun Fluid Age 0880 uses the mineral sunscreen Titanium Dioxide in its formula, which is a gentle, skin-calming sun filter.

Case in point? You can even use it on children from eight years old and during epregnancy. It packs both Cypress and Matricaria Flower extracts to hydrate and soothe skin and Niacinimide to brighten dark spots and pigmentation. Even better, it’s reef-safe and won’t give your skin that dreaded white cast as many mineral-based formulas tend to do.

How best to apply sunscreen

To get the most out of these hard-working Korean skincare SPFs start with a deep cleanse and light exfoliation to get rid of dead skin cells on the surface that can cause your complexion to look flaky and ashy.

After toning, apply an antioxidant-rich vitamin C serum to instantly brighten skin and help repair free radical damage.

Layer a lightweight hyaluronic-acid packed moisturiser over the top to help plump up skin and apply your preferred SPF as your last step for an extra hit of sheer, anti-ageing protection.
