Why do I need to use a sunscreen?

Sunscreen is the best anti-aging product that exists, as it has the ability to prevent and protect against major signs of premature ageing. UV exposure is one of the most significant ageing factors that is under your control. The effects of the sun are powerful and range from sunburn to collagen breakdown, and scarily can even lead to skin cancer. Although you may only feel that it is important to use sunscreen when you’re on holiday, it's also crucial to include this step in your daily skincare routine. Whether you’re in the office, picking up the kids from school or going for your daily walk, by integrating a broad-spectrum sunscreen daily into your routine, you can enjoy youthful-looking skin for many more years to come.


What causes sunburn and sun damage?

The UV light that reaches your skin daily consists of both UVA and UVB rays. UVB light is strongest during the summer and is the primary cause of sunburn. UVA light is consistent all year round, penetrates deeply, and causes damage without sunburn. Integrating a high-SPF sunscreen that advertises broad-spectrum protection, UVA protection, or a PA+ rating will safeguard your skin with daily use.


What’s the difference between a Physical and Chemical sunscreen?

You’re not the only one that’s confused when it comes to physical and chemical sunscreens. Let us break it down for you. A physical sunscreen, as its name suggests, creates a physical barrier between the sun and your vulnerable skin. Physical sunscreen formulas remain on the surface of your skin and do not absorb. However, a chemical sunscreen does the exact opposite and penetrates skin and is absorbed by the deeper layers of your skin. Chemical sunscreens soak up the damaging rays, like a sponge, to prevent them doing any damage.

Excellet Product

I started using actives this year, and that combined with very pale skin means I need a sunscreen on everyday. I had trouble finding one that would go on under my makeup, without my skin feeling oily all day, and congesting my skin. I love this product. It is SPF 50+, goes on smoothly, and gives great coverage. I hardly use any other makeup over the top, other than a light powder to set it. Highly recommend.

Worth it

This is my go -to daily facial moisturiser. it smooths on easily, has a slight tint which helps to even out the skin but not to the extent that it changes the skin colour. Also love the fact that it has an SPF in it. I used to use the Alph H moisturiser which was 50+ but found the tint to be too much and it to be quite greasy. This one applies smoothly and doesn't make my t-zone oily

Lovely

with having very pale skin my skin burns very easily, but i have finally found a sunscreen that protects my skin 100%! this sunscreen is amazing, the formula is great and it doesn't take long to sink into your skin so you can go into the sun almost straight after putting it on
