Sun Awareness Week - what you need to know.
8th May 2017
8th - 12th May is sun awareness week, we thought we would give you a break down of what you need to know when it comes to skincare.
We all know by now that we need to protect our skin from the sun – no one likes to be sunburned! But there’s a little more to it than avoiding the lobster look.
Here’s a quick guide to your sun cream bottle…
Protection against UVB and UVA Rays - This is the very least you want from your sun cream. This one is simple: the higher the SPF, the longer you are protected. If you want to protect your skin against burning and ageing caused by the sun, then you don’t want to be letting those UVA and UVB rays penetrate your skin.
Getting more from your sun cream - Ensure your sun cream offers prevention against UVB and UVA rays to help keep those wrinkles at bay. To get protection from both you need a product that offers broad spectrum protection. Some bottles will also be labelled with a PA+, PA++ or PA+++ rating. PA stands for photo-ageing and the more +’s, the higher the protection!
Your Summer Essential - The Anti-Ageing Protective Care SPF30 PA+++ offers broad spectrum protection against burning, skin ageing, pollution and pigmentation plus something very special… the Coco Cells within the formula help to protect the skin’s DNA.
It is when the DNA in the skin is damaged that the risk of skin cancer is increased. By protecting these cells with this innovative formula you will reduce the risk of DNA damage.
Remember, to enjoy the sun safely!
