Is this $130 sunscreen Elizabeth Hurley's secret to looking ageless?

Elizabeth Hurley swears by this product for her youthful skin.

We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again: Never underestimate the power of sunscreen. Not only does wearing it daily protect your skin from the damaging effects of UV rays, but of all skincare products and ingredients we incorporate in our regular regimens, SPF is by far the most powerful against premature ageing according to dermatologists. And if there’s one person that’s proof of this, it’s Elizabeth Hurley.

Showing off how she's making the most of this year’s “hot girl summer,” the 54-year old British bombshell treated fans to a flirty bikini pic of herself soaking up the sun.


In the photo captioned “Bliss,” Hurley is seen relaxing on a pink pool floatie sporting a striped bikini from her line and a pair of sunnies.

Soon after sharing the post to Instagram, fans reacted to how fit and how beautiful her skin looked. When one fan guessed which sunscreen she was wearing, the model revealed that she uses one from cult-favourite skincare brand La Mer.

The La Mer Broad Spectrum SPF 50 UV Protecting Fluid ($130) is a weightless fluid formula that best loved for its hydrating properties and its smooth and comfortable finish.

Made with the brand’s signature Miracle Broth complex, this SPF 50 helps boost the skin’s natural renewal, while a blend of photonic spheres, gemstones, and smart seaweed that react to light help create a comforting emollient barrier.

And while the luxury formula is proven to actually work and gets Hurley’s stamp of approval, we still get over its steep price. If this sunscreen way out of your budget, shop our affordable picks below — we promise they won’t disappoint.
