Most of us are on a mission to have a fresh, glowing complexion; we do all the right things like using great skincare, eating a healthy diet, drinking lots of water and exercising regularly.  But, wearing an SPF is not always on our list of priorities. So, here is why wearing SPF is our no1 anti-ageing skincare tip!

Many of the visible signs of ageing are caused by the sun!

Sunscreens are the skins first line of defense against premature aging from UV light. Regular use of sunscreen protects the skin against photo aging that includes pigmentation, loss of elasticity and wrinkling. Not mentioning protection against sunburn and skin cancer!

The sun is strong even when it’s not out!

Even on the cold grey days, that we see far too often, UV rays are still present. And what’s more, there is also a hidden danger indoors in the form or Blue light from our electronic devises!

Sunscreen protects every skin type!

No skin is exempt from the damaging effect of sun exposure. While people with fair skin are more likely to suffer the negative effects of sun exposure, darker skins also needs daily SPF for the safety of their skin.

You have more choice than ever!

Gone are the days of pasty white zinc oxide sitting on our skin. Most modern sunscreen particles give invisible sun protection. The options are many, from a lightweight, a tinted or a full almost foundation style cover!

We recommend a Physical or Mineral sunscreen

The benefits of a physical sunscreen are:

  • It is Less likely to irritate a sensitive skin because its ingredients aren’t absorbed into the skin,
  • Sits on the skins surface and reflects and scatters UV rays.
  • Protects immediately after application.
  • It can be reapplied over make-up.
  • Filters blue light too! Bonus!
