We’ve banged on about the importance of regularly using an SPF often enough in the past. In summary, not only is sun damage estimated to be responsible for as much as 80% of skin ageing, but is the major risk factor in developing skin cancers. What’s more, while the risk of experiencing sun damage is increased when temperatures are warmer and the sky is clearer, the risk doesn’t disappear altogether when it’s cloudy or cold. UVB radiation, the variety of UV radiation that plays the greatest role in skin ageing, can penetrate through clouds and class, meaning you’re at risk much more than you may think. For this reason, it’s simply sensible to ensure you’re building SPF into your routine as much as possible.
Using SPF every day may seem excessive to some, but it’s extremely easy to get into the habit when you use a combined SPF moisturiser. Simply swapping your daily moisturiser for one with an inbuilt SPF is a convenient and effective way to get the sun protection you need, which will become second nature in no time.
