While sunscreen may be on the top of your priority list when going to the beach or for a long walk in summer, we tend to become less inclined to apply it when it comes to everyday wear.
As we know, exposure to sun rays is important for your overall well being in order to absorb enough Vitamin D. However, too much exposure can cause signs of premature ageing and skin damage. Even on days where it is overcast where you think there’s no risk, up to 80% of sun rays are still being absorbed by your skin. So to protect your skin, we highly recommend making sure sunscreen is part of your everyday skincare routine.
Years ago, the thought of wearing thick and pasty sunscreen daily made us cringe. Thankfully, skincare has come a long way so you can avoid the old school slimy sunscreen that comes to mind. Workdays for most people don’t involve being outdoors, so your sun protection shouldn’t need to be over 35 to 50+ SPF. So, a great way to avoid creating extra steps in your routine is by selecting items that you already love and use that include SPF, such as moisturiser or colour correcting serums.
Our favourite sun friendly products we commonly recommend are:
