SPF in winter? Yes really!

The cold air, dark afternoons and shorter days suggest that winter has finally arrived. We know that our skin is going to suffer and become a little drier so it’s wise to reach for a rich moisturiser, but did you know that you should still be protecting your skin with an SPF?

We explain why it’s so important to stay on top of your sun protection duties!

UVA
This form of ultra violet light causes cell damage and long term skin ageing and has been linked to some skin cancers.

UVB
Causes sun burn and damage to the skin cell DNA and is linked to most skin cancers.

This simplifies why it’s a must to invest in all-year-round skin protection! As UVB rays vary in intensity and season, we may not necessarily be burning in the winter time, but our skin is still at risk of damage caused by UVA as these harmful rays are always present.

UV rays damage our natural collagen and elastin which accelerates premature ageing resulting in fine lines, wrinkles and skin dryness. Protecting the skin with an SPF will ensure the skin is left supple and well moisturised.

The Light Day Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF-37 from Circadia protects against both UVA and UVB rays. It’s a light lotion that contains grape stem cell culture extract to enhance photo protection and delay cell senescence. It’s fast absorbing with an elegant feel designed for daily use.
