SPF (or Sun Protection Factor) is arguably the most important product in your beauty regime. Why you ask? This is why:

  • Protects Against Harmful UVA & UVB Rays
  • Reduces Signs Of Aging
  • More Protecting Than Moisturisers/Foundations With SPF In Them
  • Usually Contains Antioxidants
  • Protects Your Skin When Using Acids
  • Reduces The Risk Of Skin Cancer
  • Prevents Burns
  • Prevents Hyperpigmentation

Apply sunscreen at the end of your AM skincare routine. If you use makeup, let the sunscreen dry completely before using any makeup products.

At the end of the day, to remove sunscreen, your regular cleanser will usually be fine.

If you have dark skin, avoid sunscreens with high percentages of physical filters (zinc oxide and titanium dioxide) as it'll lead a white cast to your skin. We'd recommend Chemical sunscreens instead.

If you have sensitive skin, you may prefer to look for an all physical sunscreen or a physical/chemical combination sunscreen.

Hope this helps!
