We’re told that wearing SPF on a daily basis protects us from sun damaged skin and harmful UV rays that can cause skin cancers, but have you ever thought about the hidden beauty secrets behind SPF.
SPF stands for sun protection factor which is the measure of how well sunscreen protects the face and skin from harmful UV rays, even on those cloudy and rainy days. UV rays are the main cause of ageing the skin, creating the appearance of brown spots, fine lines and wrinkles. Whilst there may be treatments to treat concerns like these, you should always where SPF on days ending in Y, why? SPF works by preventing early signs of ageing by forming a solution early on.
Remember The Skin You're In
Treating your skin to SPF may not sound like a luxury, but protecting your skin against harmful UV rays that can dehydrate and age the skin can seem pretty luxurious in the long run. By applying SPF daily this can tackle ageing concerns early on. It is important to reapply SPF throughout the day with the magic number being factor 30 for some.
