Did you know that May is skin cancer awareness month? A great reminder of how important it is that we all wear SPF each and every day - whether the sun makes an appearance or not, even on Christmas Day. Your face and body are exposed to UV radiation every day no matter what the weather, and even if you’re not spending the majority of your days outside.
When it comes to choosing your SPF, there’s one particular important aspect to consider. Make sure your SPF is labelled Broad Spectrum, which means it contains a combination of ingredients to protect you from UVA and UVB rays. Remember, UVA rays cause ageing to the skin while UVB rays are what causes sunburn to the skin.
And the best way to protect your skin on the daily? Ensure that you apply SPF every morning, and top it up throughout the day when needed. No matter how high the factor, it will unfortunately wear off after one to two hours. If you’re not wearing makeup, you can just apply your SPF as normal. But if you are, opt for a mineral-based foundation or powder so that you can top up your sun protection during the day or an SPF mist spray that not only protects your skin but also helps to revive the makeup throughout the day.
