Why you need to wear sunscreen every day

Should you wear an SPF face moisturiser indoors?

We all know it’s an absolute must to use an SPF protection product on our skin, particularly our face while we’re outside in the sun. But are you aware that your skin is under attack from harmful light and radiation rays all year round?

Find out where these nasties come from and see how you can protect your face from them…

Where are light and radiation coming from?

Sat indoors you may feel you’re safe from harmful rays and radiation. And, while standard glass windows can block UVB rays, UVA rays can still get through.

UVA rays are plentiful and powerful - they’re able to penetrate deeper into the skin and are the main cause of photoaging. Photoaging is a common face concern it can present itself as dark spots, fine-line and wrinkles and skin textural change.

It’s not just the sun that causes skin damage when you’re inside, blue light that is emitted from electronic devices like computers, TVs and mobile phones act in a similar way to UVA rays. And, infra-red radiation that is emitted from things like hair-dryers and toasters can lead to skin dehydration and tissue damage.
