Sun protection is an every day must. A lot of us think we should just use it when we go on holiday aboard. This is not the right way in thinking – The fact is, if you want to keep your skin in top shape and you want to be avoiding wrinkles, building collagen, brown discoloration and even preventing skin cancer then you need sun protection in your everyday life.
Are you sitting next to the window in the office? UVA radiation, the suns most damaging rays come through windows. The longer you are going to be exposed to UVA radiation the higher the SPF number you will need to apply.
You should be moisturizing twice a day after you have cleansed your face. In your day cream moisturizer you should always have a SPF. We are very lucky as now many moisturizers, foundation and eye make-up have some form of sun protection.
I would recommend no less than an SPF of 15. There are some brilliant moisturizers that even have SPF of 30 plus your anti aging ingredients in there.
Remember your lips can burn like the rest of your skin. Always wear a lip balm with an SPF 15 or higher – Not only does in protect from the sun but the moisture helps to prevent chapping and dryness.
At my salon, we have recently launch Dermalogica – which most of there moisturizers have a SPF of 15 or 30. I can’t live without my tinted moisturizer, and I know I’m covered as its SPF 15!
Please keep your skin safe and get yourself protected.
