The Importance of SPF

One of the best things you can do for your skin is wear SPF protection.
Not only are you protecting your skin from the sun but UV levels as well.

80% of premature ageing is caused by UV damage, UVB is your burning ray, this comes from the sun and causes you to burn.

UVA is coming from all artificial light and is around us all the time. It comes from your computer screen, TV screens, phone and it also comes through on cloudy days meaning the harmful rays are there even in the winter months.

UVA is a much longer ray, it can penetrate down to the layers of your skin where your collagen is being produced, causing premature ageing as well as sun damage.

Sun protection that contains both UVA and UVB protection is referred to as Broad Spectrum sun protection and it is vital to wear this all day, every day, all year round.

SPF protection that also contains Antioxidant protection is even better still as the antioxidants help to defend the skin cells from damage caused by the sun and will also protect our skin cells DNA.
