Importance of SPF

Including sunscreen in your daily skincare routine is crucial, regardless of the season. Although the sun's warmth and brightness are usually associated with summer, ultraviolet rays can be equally harmful during the cooler months.

Here's why SPF is crucial all year round and some sun protection tips to keep in mind:

UV rays are always present.
Even on cloudy days or during the winter, up to 80% of UV rays can penetrate through clouds and reflect off snow and ice, increasing the risk of skin damage. A broad-spectrum SPF that protects against UVA (aging rays) and UVB (burning rays) is essential.

Daily exposure accumulates.
The incidental sun exposure you get from daily activities, even for just 10-20 minutes a day, adds up over time and can significantly contribute to skin aging and skin cancer risk.

Protection against photoaging.
Chronic exposure to the sun accelerates the skin's aging process, leading to premature wrinkles, sagging, and hyperpigmentation.

Sun protection tips:

(1) Use broad-spectrum sunscreen. Embrace sunscreens from professional skincare brands that offer SPF 30 or higher. This is essential for both oily and dry skin, as all skin types are susceptible to UV damage.

(2) Wear protective clothing. Alongside sunscreen, wearing clothing rated with an Ultraviolet Protection Factor (UPF) provides an additional layer of defense.

(3) Be mindful of reflection. Surfaces like water, snow, and sand can intensify UV rays.

(4) Incorporate SPF into your beauty routine. Many natural skincare brands offer daily moisturizers and foundations with SPF, which easily ensures constant protection against UV damage.
