Good protection should be a year-round pursuit, and that's where men's SPF moisturizers come in.

For the days when you're not mainlining warm, unpronounceable beers on foreign shores, an SPF moisturiser grants a basic level of defense, and prevents signs of sun-related damage: dryness, spots, wrinkles, the lot. What's more, everyday use ensures optimum skincare. UV rays can still permeate cloudy skies, and, according to figures from Cancer Research UK, incidences of melanoma have risen by 55 percent in males over the last decade.

That means you need to look after yourself. And you can do so with one of these.

Multiple ingredients usually means a thicker balm. But not in Anthony Day's case. Despite a Triple Entente of vitamin E, soy, and glycerin, this SPF moisturiser is effective, but lightweight.

There's a reason all-natural means all good. Lavender can repair skin, orange refreshes it, and ylang ylang (oil from a tropical tree found in India) leaves it with a soft finish. Natio's SPF15 moisturizer combines all three.
