365 Days of SPF

Did you know that May is skin cancer awareness month? And while the sun is making its rare appearance, we’re here to be your gentle reminder that wearing SPF isn’t only for sunny days, but for 365 days of the year (366 if we’re counting the leap year!).

Why is it needed every day? Simply put, each day the sun emits both UVA and UVB rays. UVA rays are what age our skin, and UVB is what can burn our skin (remember, A for ageing and B for burning!). While the sun may not be high in the sky, the UVA rays can still make their way through glass, so whether you’re at home, in your car, anywhere, they’re affecting you.

Ensuring SPF is part of your everyday routine is essential to ensure daily protection from both UVA and UVB rays, helping to protect your skin from skin cancer. But, particularly on sunny days, remember to top up your SPF throughout the day for ultimate protection.

We have plenty of SPF options to choose from, whether you’re looking for a budget option, a super lightweight and creamy pick or a spray SPF. Take your pick!

Don’t forget you can also shop SPF by specific skin type at Millies, right here. If you’re not sure which kind of SPF to opt for, check out some of our best selling SPFs right below, happy shopping!
