1st October 2018

Summer may be over but that doesn’t mean you should stop applying sunscreen.

Here at SunSense, our aim is to encourage people to protect their skin from the sun’s UV rays all-year-round.

As we delve into the autumn and winter months, we want to encourage people to continue with their sun protection, even if it is a cloudy day. After all, over 90% of UV can pass through light cloud[1].

A long-term risk of sun exposure is premature ageing and wrinkling of the skin[2], with UV rays being the main cause of skin ageing,[3] therefore it’s important to take preventative measures to help shield your skin from UV rays by applying a high SPF sunscreen every day and re-apply regularly.

Sun damage also significantly increases the risk of skin cancer[4], so it is important to provide your skin with all-year-round protection to help minimise your risk.

Our range of Daily Face products offer SPF50+ protection for every day use on the face, neck and chest:

SunSense Daily Face SPF50+ – Contains Vitamin B3 to help improve skin texture/tone and moisturises for skin hydration whilst providing an invisible tint/matte finish

SunSense Anti-Ageing Face SPF50+ – Contains lactic acid (alpha hydroxy acid) to help visibly reduce fine lines and wrinkles. It combines the anti-ageing benefits of lactic acid with SPF 50+ broad spectrum protection to help reduce and prevent the signs of premature ageing due to sun exposure. It also contains antioxidants Vitamin E and and Vitamin B3 (Niacinamide) and is available in a matte format, too.

Keep giving your skin LUV (Less Ultra Violet) this autumn and help keep your skin protected from UV rays with SunSense.
