Did you know that 90% of skin ageing is caused by the sun and using SPF will ensure you are protected against the risk of skin cancer?
Staying protected in the sun is THE single most important factor to your skin’s health and the Holy Grail of anti-ageing. So our skincare experts have written this blog to keep you safe in the sun.
Top tips for staying safe in the sun
- When choosing sunscreen it is essential that it protects your skin from UVA and UVB rays.
- Seek shade, wearing a hat and sunglasses.
- Adapt your SPF for your lifestyle: Wear SPF 15 on a normal day out and about. Wear SPF 30 for extended outdoor activities and reapply as needed for your skin type. Wear SPF 50 high altitudes or when using Retinol/Hydroquinone products.
- Studies have also shown that eating grapes, protects you from the sun’s ultraviolet radiation! So next time you’re at the supermarket definitely get a packet!
Is your current suncream safe?
Recently, an independent laboratory released disconcerting findings about sunscreens that may already be on your shelf. These high-street brands were found to be contaminated with benzene which is a known carcinogen that has been linked to serious medical conditions and is used to make rubbers, dyes and pesticides. It has no business being in your cosmetics, that’s for sure!
