Sunscreens work by absorbing or reflecting the UV rays of the sun. They create a barrier between your skin and the sun’s rays. If you use active skincare, you should absolutely be using an excellent quality, cosmeceutical suncream that will ensure your skincare results are protected, and your skin does not become additionally sensitised from the sun.

It’s important to choose a cosmeceutical-level sunscreen if you’re using active ingredients such as retinol or glycolic acid. These sunscreens are typically more than just your average sun defense, as they often contain additional skincare benefits such as antioxidants, niacinamide and other Vitamin B forms.

What is UVA and UVB?

When it comes to sunscreens, we think of needing protection from both UVA and UVB sun rays. UVA rays get beneath the surface of the skin and can lead to skin damage, premature aging, and wrinkles, while UVB rays affect the skin superficially and can cause sunburns and redness. It is therefore important to protect our skin from both types of UV rays by using a broad spectrum sunscreen.

Broad spectrum cosmeceuticals sunscreen

All suncreams have a sun protection factor (SPF) number or rating and while it’s generally a good idea to go big or go home, choosing a broad spectrum sunscreen with a high SPF will do you no good if you use it incorrectly. It is essential that you follow your suncreams instructions exactly, because even assuming that you do, no sunscreen is able to block 100 percent of the sun’s UVB rays. A good suncream can typically protect against 97-99 percent of UVB rays, though it does depend on the SPF (the higher the better!).

Wearing sunscreen is an important part of protecting yourself from sun damage but it should be a part of an overall strategy that includes things like wearing appropriate clothing, seeking shade and staying hydrating.

Lightweight sun protection

I received a couple of samples of this recently and have begun using it in the mornings. Firstly, it has a pleasant smell (not an overpowering sunscreen smell). When you put it on your hands you can see it is very white and has the look of a sunscreen but when you apply it to your face it doesn't feel at all as heavy as a traditional sunscreen. Glides on well, soaks in well and doesn't leave any c...

Great sunscreen option, deeply moisturising

I love this as a daily sunscreen and moisturiser.
It penetrates the layers and leaves my skin feeling soft, I was waking up with chest wrinkles from sleeping on my side and dry winter skin, I starting using this day and night and they have decreased significantly. Just don’t get it near your eyes it stings!
