When it comes toskin care ingredients, one category that often gets overlooked is SPF. However, the importance of SPF in skin care couldn’t be more crucial - here’s why. And for the guys - there’s men’s skin care with SPF too, so don’t slack on the sun protection!
The Importance of SPF in Skin Care
We all know that the foundation of a skin care routine revolves around cleansers and moisturiser - but there’s one more important step that you should consider, even before you think about adding a serum. That crucial step is sunscreen, whether that’s in a daymoisturiser or a specific facial sunscreen.
The importance of SPF in skin care is incredibly underestimated, but quite literally determines the future of your skin. The number one cause of premature signs ofageing is UV exposure - no matter how good your skincare routine is, it’s going to be incredibly difficult to undo past sun exposure.
Continuing to damage your skin with the sun doesn’t help either - not using sunscreen with amazing anti-ageing ingredients likeretinol and peptides is like taking one step forward and two steps backward. An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure - and wearing sunscreen is one of the best ways to prevent too muchsun damage from popping up before it’s too late.
Everyone should be using SPF, even the guys - that’s why men’s skin care with SPF is an option. There’s no excuse not to be using SPF - and using it isn’t just for cosmetic reasons, either. In the Southern Hemisphere, we have a weakened ozone layer leading to increased UV radiation. Wearing sun protection consistently shields us from the health risks associated with the extra UV we get - the cosmetic effect is just a bonus!
