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.

Good for combination skin

I have combination skin which makes finding a sunscreen really tricky. This product is great, it doesn't leave my skin oily and doesn't make me break out. It's light but still moisturising and absorbs quickly. In the Summer months I use it instead of my face oil in the mornings, in winter I use them in combination, you just have to make sure you put the sunscreen on last and wait until the other products have absorbed. I have sensitive skin and I haven't had a problem with this sunscreen.

I have struggled to find a sun protection for under my makeup that I liked. I decided to try this and I’m in love. A bit pricey but lasts for ages. Makeup sits perfect on top of it

like it

This moisturiser is great for those of us with combination skin. I use it twice daily and it sits great under makeup. It doesn’t have the sticky texture like the moisture surge which is why I prefer it. Big fan of the moisturiser.
