Stay Sun Safe in Spring
Spring has sprung and with it all the gentle optimism of brighter evenings, warmers days and more time outdoors. After the long year we have all had we deserve to enjoy the spring and the gifts it brings.
This time of season transition is a great time to remind ourselves of the importance of wearing SPF every day, it is the greatest choice you can make for the health of your skin and to ensure you look and feel fresh, youthful and avoid any serious or superficial impacts of sun damage of the skin.
UVA and UVB rays affect the skin all year round and even in the months we are not outside all that much, these sneaky rays can even travel through glass!
Sun damage in the skin can range from the very serious in the form of skin cancer to the more cosmetic issues of hyper pigmentation, the breakdown of collagen and elastin and the dehydration of the skin.
If you want to avoid Botox the number one thing to do is to apply an SPF daily all year round. UVA rays break down the supportive collagen and elastin fibres in the skin, when this happens the skin will lose some of its bounce and stretch meaning that lines and wrinkles are more pronounced and skin is looser with less volume. Uneven skin tone, hyper pigmentation, age spots and acne and rosacea can all be accentuated by UV rays.
To avoid these skin issues, apply SPF daily, here are our top picks to protect your skin.
