For the first time in what seems like a decade, the UK is actually enjoying a decent amount of heat at the moment. For longer than your average one or two day heat blast, temperatures of plus 30 figures are being recorded all over and all I’ve got to say to that is AMEN!

If you’re anything like me, the last thing you want to do in this heat and humidity is apply a load of beauty products. As you’ll no doubt be sweating your ass off, most products you apply will seem to fall off your face within minutes through sweat, which doesn’t make for a good look when you’re on your way to work, at the beach or down the gym.

This time of year calls for nothing more than a men’s moisturiser with SPF, which not only have a lightweight quick drying texture to them but also offer a sensible amount of sun protection too. The best thing I’ve found with this type of men’s skincare product is that you don’t need to combine them with a greasy, sticky or streaky sunscreen, which in most cases will turn your face into a glowing mess. Instead, deploy an SPF male moisturiser and you’ll be able to effortlessly keep up your good grooming standards and stay protected in the process whilst you get your tan on. Here are the top four men’s face creams and moisturisers that contain SPF, assembled for you by our experts.

Anthony Day Cream SPF30

A lightweight and quick-absorbing SPF moisturiser that’s been specifically designed for men’s skin. Anthony’s Day Cream deeply nourishes the skin with a no-shine finish, whilst protecting it from damaging UVA and UVB rays. What I most love about this Day Cream is that it has a fresh and natural scent to it and I don’t need to plaster it all over my face to get the desired effect. A little goes a long way with this SPF moisturiser and it leaves my skin with a nice matte finish, perfect for the action men out there.

Billy Jealousy Combat Lines SPF30

Let’s face it gents, in this day and age, you simply have to use protection. Especially true if you’re a man over 30, as collagen and proteins break down more rapidly within the skin. This results in a more damaging effect on your skin and the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, which are intensified further with regular sun exposure. Get your grooming game ready for combat with the SPF30 Moisturiser from Billy Jealousy and never let your face get caught in no man’s land again. The Combat Lines Moisturiser features AquaCell and Aesthigel technologies to not only protect further sun damage but minimise the appearance of previous sun damage also. There’s a whole lot of male skin care science in every single bottle!

Jack Black Double Duty SPF20 Moisturiser

It’s fair to say that Jack Black have hit the nail on the head with everything they’ve engulfed into their hugely popular Double Duty Face Moisturiser. From its premium quality ingredients, anti-wrinkle technology and PureScience advances, right down to the more aesthetically pleasing components of the cream, including its great look, light texture and scent, there are few out there who do it better. It’s just a huge bonus that Double Duty has a sensible level of sun protection too and with its no streak or shine finish, you can enjoy all day long protection against harmful elements and keep your skin revitalized in the process. Jack Black tick all the boxes when it comes to what men should look for in their perfect summer moisturiser. If you’re a guy with combination or normal skin, this will work wonders for you.

Recipe For Men SPF15 Facial Moisturiser

A deeply hydrating cream that feels luxurious on the skin and boasts superior sun protection defence, it could only be the outright winner in our book from Scandinavian skin care experts Recipe For Men. SPF15 Facial Moisturiser works tirelessly to defend your skin from the hazards of both short and long term sun exposure, beginning with UVA/UVB protection and anti-inflammatory benefits and ending with the protection of valuable proteins and pigments deep within the skin. I’d describe this as a cutting edge men’s face moisturiser, not only because of it’s broad spectrum sun protection filters, but its intensely nourishing, softening and smoothing capability too. This moisturiser has a perfect consistency to it that quickly sinks into the skin. It also smells fantastic and with one morning application, you can enjoy all day long protection. It is a great credit to Recipe For Men that they should earn top spot, especially considering the high standard of SPF men’s moisturiser currently on the market. From dry to normal skin types, Recipe For Men have you covered.
