No matter whatever the weather there are some valid reasons why we should be protecting our skin even when we think we don’t need to. Here is why we need SPF for every season…
1. Not a single ray of sun is required for skin damage to occur; UVA rays are out in force every day, every season.
2. Products containing retinol, liquid exfoliants (AHAs/ BHAs) and hyper-pigmentation serums leave skin particularly vulnerable to UV damage. While among my favourites, they must be paired with SPF30+.
3. Sunscreen doesn’t only protect against skin cancer, it’s also the most powerful anti-aging product out there. A final coat of skincare armour that’s not worth skipping.
These three in particular stand out for me. Each one feels luxurious to apply and sits beautifully on my skin (with or without makeup), while providing broad spectrum protection.
