UV rays from the sun are the biggest cause of visible signs of ageing. Whether the sun is shining or it’s raining, for younger-looking skin and to prevent further damage, it’s important to use a day cream with at least SPF 30, 365 days a year.
A good sunscreen is the most important product in your routine and your number one defence against the formation of dark spots, wrinkles and other signs of ageing. In addition to SPF, a good day cream will also contain a powerful mix of antioxidants and moisturising and skin-repairing ingredients that are suitable for your skin type. We take the protection of your skin against harmful UV radiation very seriously and that is why we have developed several day creams with SPF, so you can make the best choice for your skin type.
Harmful UV radiation is always present, even when it is raining and cloudy. A good anti-ageing skin care routine consists of a well-formulated cleanser, toner, exfoliant, serum, eye cream and moisturiser. These products are all important for younger-looking and healthier-looking skin, but none of these replace the daily necessity for a good SPF. You will not get the results you want if you don’t protect your skin against harmful radiation from the sun every day. We cannot say it often enough: use an SPF with anti-ageing properties daily, otherwise your skin will be damaged by the sun!
So what if you already have wrinkles and dark spots due to years of unprotected sun exposure? Fortunately, it is never too late to protect your skin. Research has shown that people who started using a broad spectrum SPF later in life saw a decrease in all visible signs of skin ageing. Whatever your age, the daily use of sun protection is the basis of any anti-ageing skin care routine.
Now that you are ready to add an anti-ageing day cream with SPF to your daily skin care routine, it is important to consider these top tips when shopping for the perfect SPF:
