27th May 2018, is Sunscreen Day! Yes, that super skin saviour has its very own celebration! But here at enhanceskin, we live by our mantra, “Protect, Rejuvenate, Enhance”… And that means that you should be celebrating sunscreen every day, even in winter, especially in the Top of the South!
Sun damage is the main cause of extrinsic aging (extrinsic aging is the result of environmental factors that play a role in how fast your skin ages). Sun exposure without the application of sunscreen will result in harmful ultraviolet (UV) rays penetrating the skin and increased aging. If you need proof, check out this article in the U.K. newspaper The Independent. Did you know UV rays are emitted by many indoor lights.
The easiest way to celebrate sunscreen day all year round is to make it part of your daily skincare routine. Use your sunscreen after you have cleansed and applied your serum, but before you apply your makeup.
Remember to use at least SPF 30 and be sure to use a facial sun screen. This may seem obvious, but we know that lots of people still go for the one size fits all approach when it comes to sunscreen. Using a product specially formulated for the face will revolutionise your sunscreen experience!
- It will feel so much better to put on and keep on; you won’t get that horrible “gloopiness.”
- Your make up won’t slide off when you wear a facial sunscreen
- There’s less chance a face formulation will congest your skin so that you can avoid breakouts
- A facial sunscreen will be specifically formulated for more sensitive skin
At enhanceskin, we stock a range of sunscreen products from PCA Skin. We love PCA Hydrator Plus Broad Spectrum SPF30, it’s a nourishing moisturiser and sun screen, specifically formulated with key ingredients for dry or dehydrated skin.
