Whatever your lifestyle, protecting your skin from the sun is a vital step to achieving and retaining youthful radiance.

The sun’s rays are comprised of both UVA and UVB rays; these seemingly invisible rays are a major cause of premature ageing.

UVA rays are an environmental aggressor that contributes to premature ageing, they are absorbed more deeply into the skin than UVB rays, damaging the skins elasticity as well as causing dark spots.

UVB rays are at their strongest during the warmer summer months, but we are actually exposed to UVA rays all year long.

This means that even when the British weather leaves your BBQ cloudy and overcast, your skin is still exposed to the sun’s harmful UVA rays.

TOP TIPS

Using broad-spectrum sun care that offers both UVA and UVB protection is a key step to protect your skin from UV rays.

At Dr Sharon’s Facial Aesthetics we recommend applying a liberal amount of the SPF product just before going in the sun, and reapplying frequently throughout the day to maintain the level of protection. 

I love the Teoxane Advance Perfecting Shield and this makes a great make up base too!
