Obagi Sun Shield Matte Broad Spectrum SPF 50, €79, skinshop.ie

A broad spectrum sunscreen will aim to block out UVA/UVB rays and some blue light, and this one will also give skin a sheer, matte finish.

Niod Copper Amino Isolate Serum 1pc, €45.60, Arnotts

Serums may sound a bit finicky, but can form a great foundation on the skin when applied after cleansing and before moisturiser. As this contains copper peptides, daily application will help restore any damaged skin from too much exposure to blue light.

BareMinerals Complexion Rescue Defense, €42, bareMinerals boutiques and bareminerals.co.uk

BareMinerals use natural ingredients to fight the unnatural and they're ahead of the pack in developing this tinted moisturiser, which launches July 12. The key ingredient is organically sourced cacao from Peru, which works to block the damaging effects of blue light.

Paula's Choice Resist Super Antioxidant Concentrate Serum, €39, paulaschoice-eu.com

Ideal for normal, dry and sensitive skin, the serum harnesses antioxidants and stabilised vitamin C to repair damaged cells, stimulate collagen production and rebuild the skin's protective barrier for healthier, younger-looking skin.

Skinceuticals Phloretin CF Serum, €175, skinshop.ie

It's pricey, but this antioxidant serum helps protect the skin against the ageing effects of UVA/UVB rays and other environmental aggressors for up to 72 hours. Loaded with 10pc pure vitamin C, it can also improve skin tone and texture while reducing the appearance of fine lines and discolouration.
