Fact – SPF is every dermatologist’s secret to keeping your skin in tip top condition. The key to protecting your complexion from damaging UVA and UVB rays as well as pollution, wearing SPF 30 (or ideally 50) is the number one tip experts give for a flawless complexion. Because, even in England (and even indoors), you should be wearing an SPF every day if you want to keep your skin looking good for as long as possible.
‘Sunscreen is the one “anti-ageing” product everyone should be using on a daily basis,’ explains expert dermatologist Dr. Sam Bunting. ‘It’s now proven to not only prevent future premature ageing but to actually improve existing wrinkles, pigmentation and texture.’In short? ‘If you free skin up from the “distraction” of needing to protect itself from UV rays, it gets down to the business of repair,’ says Bunting.
Forget the heavy sun creams that leave you looking ghostly, the new wave of SPF moisturisers are lightweight, non-sticky and super hydrating. A few of them even make you look more radiant. Huzzah! Apply every morning as the last step of your skincare and before make-up for your best skin ever.
