As we’re all stuck at home for now and with the weather improving which means longer spells in the garden (and outdoors when we’re officially released) #SPF is really important. Even if you’re working from home close to windows, it’s still just as important. Although being in the sun has some great health benefits, it can be equally as damaging if your skin is not suitably protected before exposure. Skin cancer and premature #ageing are just two reasons why sunscreen is an absolute must.
I always use factor 50 as a facial #moisturiser all year round. Even in the winter or when its cloudy UV rays can still pass through clouds and negatively impact the skin if its not protected.
Leading sunscreen specialists #Altruist have complied a list of really helpful tips...(this is not an ad or sponsored post, completely impartial) to keep you protected this summer...
☀ Exposure to UV or sun for 15 mins or more, requires skin protection - we recommend a minimum of SPF30
☀ After washing hands, protect with #sunscreen if outside - use it as a hand cream to stop your hands drying out too
☀ UV penetrates glass. If you're working from home near a window, remember to stay protected
☀ Wear sunscreen even when cloudy - 40% of #UV can penetrate clouds
☀ Always reapply every 2 hours if outside
☀ Easiest way to stay protected always? Use a quality 5 star high SPF as part of your daily skincare routine or as a daily moisturiser - that way maintaining healthy skin, is a no-brainer
A final tip from me, don't forget your lips. The skin on lips can easily get burnt. Invest in a lip balm which contains an SPF. Ideally in a tube form as they're more hygienic than jars.
I hope you have a great weekend. It's looking like a hot one but Stay Home, Stay Protected and Stay Safe. They'll be plenty more sunny weekends we can enjoy when this is over.
