Sun protection factor is the most important product in your beauty regime.
Why You Should Wear SPF Everyday
We all think of coating ourselves in sun cream in high summer or whenever we’re on the beach, but the truth is we should be wearing SPF every day of the year! Yes, whether it’s raining, snowing and not a sunray in sight – you should still be applying SPF religiously.
SPF has come on leaps and bounds in recent years, with so many different skin friendly formulas available for all types of skin meaning, no excuses!
Check out our reasons why SPF will be your new best friend, trust us you’ll be adding it to your haul straight away after scrolling this post.
SPF PROTECTS US AGAINST DANGEROUS UVB & UVA RAYS
So the most obvious reason is protecting ourselves from UVB and UVA rays that come from the sun. To ensure you are protected from both types of rays you should be looking for broad spectrum SPF products such as Bondi Sands Sunscreen Lotion Spray SPF 50+. UVB rays can cause sunburn and even lead to cancer while UVA rays can cause premature aging, neither of which we wanna see! By wearing SPF daily this will decrease the risk of both sunburn and premature aging but most importantly will decrease the risk of developing skin cancer. Although it may sound scary, it’s the reality but by wearing an SPF this massively reduces your melanoma risk and any damage to your body that may come with it.
SPF PROTECTS YOUR SKIN WHEN USING ACIDS
Using retinols, AHAs and BHAs have become increasingly popular over the last few years and whilst these products have amazing benefits, we cannot stress enough that you NEED an SPF in your routine alongside these products. These products work to remove dead skin cells from the skins surface, revealing a fresh layer of skin and in turn makes us a lot more sensitive and at risk from sun rays! So, although you’re looking after your skin, effectively it’s all wasted if you don’t wear an SPF in the day time.
SPF REDUCES THE SIGNS OF AGING
As previously mentioned, UVA rays from the sun can damage the skin and make it more prone to the signs of aging. SPF is arguably the number one anti-wrinkle, anti-dark spot, anti-aging product you can use – which is why you should be using it every single day! It has been scientifically proven to reduce the early onset of fine lines, wrinkles, and dark spots, need we say more?
