The Importance of SPF! ft. The Body Shop Skin Defence

1 comment

I'm not no skin expert but over the past few years I've learnt a lot! If I'm brutally honest I never payed much attention to SPF whilst growing up, I never understood the importance of it and why it was needed but now I cannot live without it and want to explain to you all why. SPF should always be apart of your skincare regime wether its blazing hot summer or the winter season, SPF protects your skin from sun damage all year round and reduces the development of premature ageing, hyper-pigmentation and wrinkles.

It's vital that we take action now and keep our skin protected, naturally as we age we are prone to getting wrinkles, fine lines and even dark spots but with the use of SPF you can reduce the chances of this happening quicker than it should. Not using SPF can cause our skin to:

• look dull and lifeless
• premature ageing
• dark spots
• discolouration
• uneven skintone/texture
• & even skin cancer

SPF first make up after!
I've been using The Body Shop Skin Defence which has SPF 50, the formula is so light weight and what I love the most is that it doesn't leave that annoying white cast on my face. I use this after my daily moisturiser and then go ahead with my usual make up routine, it doesn't disturb the make up at all if anything it just feels like I've only got my moisturiser on! It doesn't feel greasy nor does it leave that sticky residue on my face, make up still goes on seamlessly so this gets a 10/10 from me.

a little bit about the product:
UVA Protection - PA++++ - Helps protect skin from UVA rays, which reach deep within the skin and accelerate the process of skin ageing. 
UVB protection - SPF 50 helps protect skin from UVB rays that trigger redness and damage the skins surface.
Anti-oxidant - Helps protect skin from external aggressors such as environmental pollution that weakens the skins ability to remain healthy.
Anti-dullness - With red algae extract and vitamin C to brighten skin for more luminous complexion.
