THE IMPORTANCE OF PROTECTING YOUR SKIN

UVA and UVB rays come from the sun and are the main causes of sunburn, premature ageing, dark spots and pigmentation. UVB rays change with the seasons but UVA have the same intensity in both summer and winter. That’s why we should include skincare products with SPF protection in our routine, whatever the weather.

EXTRA PROTECTION

Don’t just rely on sun protection products to keep your skin safe. These four tips will help too…

  1. Leave your hat on.

Whether you’re in the city or at the seaside, a hat can provide that extra bit of shelter for your face. It’ll also help keep your scalp safe.

  1. Find shade.

    Sun-seekers, it’s ok to give in to shade every once in a while. Make sure to give your skin a little break with a nice shady spot.

    Your clothes can help protect your skin. Loose-fitting is preferable to tight as the material is stretched, so the level of protection may be reduced.

    1. Be wary of windows.

    While glass blocks UVB rays pretty well, UVA rays still get through. Whether you’re at home, in the car or on a plane – don’t forget your SPF!
