The importance of SPF
in your daily skincare

Summer and winter alike, your skin faces several risks and assaults from UVA and UVB rays. To protect it, you need to add SPF to your daily beauty routine. SPF 20, 30 and even 50+... Choose your level of protection according to your skin type and (especially) its sensitivity.

What is SPF?
And why is it necessary?

Skincare with SPF (Sun Protection Factor) blocks UVA and UVB rays from reaching our cells. Cells, on contact with ultraviolet rays, end up producing less melanin, collagen and elastin; three elements that are vital for the skin's ideal elasticity.

Therefore dermatologists recommend using skincare products that contain SPF every day. This will help prevent premature ageing of the epidermis, also the risk of skin cancer, whilst pampering the skin.

Watch out for common misconceptions!

You don't necessarily have to be in a swimsuit on a sandy beach to be at risk to the dangerous effects of the sun. While the sun seems less present from November to March, its rays still make their way through the clouds and can cause damage to your skin. Outdoor meals, a walk home from the office, a day out shopping with girlfriends, all subject you to involuntary UV ray exposure. So, it's best to use a cream that combines protection and hydration. Listen to the pros!
