Why do I need to use a sunscreen?

Sunscreen is the best anti-aging product that exists, as it has the ability to prevent and protect against major signs of premature ageing. UV exposure is one of the most significant ageing factors that is under your control. The effects of the sun are powerful and range from sunburn to collagen breakdown, and scarily can even lead to skin cancer. Although you may only feel that it is important to use sunscreen when you’re on holiday, it's also crucial to include this step in your daily skincare routine. Whether you’re in the office, picking up the kids from school or going for your daily walk, by integrating a broad-spectrum sunscreen daily into your routine, you can enjoy youthful-looking skin for many more years to come.


What causes sunburn and sun damage?

The UV light that reaches your skin daily consists of both UVA and UVB rays. UVB light is strongest during the summer and is the primary cause of sunburn. UVA light is consistent all year round, penetrates deeply, and causes damage without sunburn. Integrating a high-SPF sunscreen that advertises broad-spectrum protection, UVA protection, or a PA+ rating will safeguard your skin with daily use.


What’s the difference between a Physical and Chemical sunscreen?

You’re not the only one that’s confused when it comes to physical and chemical sunscreens. Let us break it down for you. A physical sunscreen, as its name suggests, creates a physical barrier between the sun and your vulnerable skin. Physical sunscreen formulas remain on the surface of your skin and do not absorb. However, a chemical sunscreen does the exact opposite and penetrates skin and is absorbed by the deeper layers of your skin. Chemical sunscreens soak up the damaging rays, like a sponge, to prevent them doing any damage.

Good but strong smell

The texture of this cream is nice and the zinc goes clear without looking ghosty. But the sage smell was too strong for me.

Moisturising and works well

I like this suncream as it can be used as a moisturiser too. I spent the last week at the beach and my freckles didn't darken with this product smeared on. It takes a little while to sink in and you may need to powder your nose, but all in all, it's a great product, and it works well! Also, it smells nice to put on but it doesn't linger

Excellent SPF!

I got this in a goodie bag. I loathe the feel of sunscreens. They are too thick, too white and just feel awful. However this sunscreen is amazing to use. It also leaves my skin looking dewy once I put my makeup over the top of it. Great price too, will buy when I'm due for more sunblock.
