Why do I need to use a sunscreen?

Suncream is the best anti-aging product that exists, as it has the ability to prevent and protect against major signs of premature ageing. UV exposure is one of the most significant ageing factors that is under your control. The effects of the sun are powerful and range from sunburn to collagen breakdown, and scarily can even lead to skin cancer. Although you may only feel that it is important to use sunscreen when you’re on holiday, it's also crucial to include this step in your daily skincare routine. Whether you’re in the office, picking up the kids from school or going for your daily walk, by integrating a broad-spectrum suncream daily into your routine, you can enjoy youthful-looking skin for many more years to come.

What causes sunburn and sun damage?

The UV light that reaches your skin daily consists of both UVA and UVB rays. UVB light is strongest during the summer and is the primary cause of sunburn. UVA light is consistent all year round, penetrates deeply, and causes damage without sunburn. Integrating a high-SPF sunscreen that advertises broad-spectrum protection, UVA protection, or a PA+ rating will safeguard your skin with daily use.

What’s the difference between a Physical and Chemical suncream?

You’re not the only one that’s confused when it comes to physical and chemical suncreams. Let us break it down for you. A physical sunscreen, as its name suggests, creates a physical barrier between the sun and your vulnerable skin. Physical sunscreen formulas remain on the surface of your skin and do not absorb. However, a chemical sunscreen does the exact opposite and penetrates skin and is absorbed by the deeper layers of your skin. Chemical sunscreens soak up the damaging rays, like a sponge, to prevent them doing any damage.

Best Sunscreen for under makeup

Really nice quality sunscreen for face. Not greasy and settles into skin well without interrupting makeup. I wear it daily under my foundation and on my décolletage, as I only spend an hour or less in the sunshine per day I believe it is great protection for skin. My cosmetologist says sunscreen is the BEST prevention for ageing!

100% essential

I only started using this over summer but I’m so glad I did.
I love the idea of an SPF with a moisturiser, it’s one less step in the daily skincare routine.
The formula is quite runny so it goes on easily and a little goes a long way.
This does leave the skin shiny, I does not dry matte at all but I like that.
I tend not to wear makeup at all at work and this gives me a hea...

Sexy Face

I walked into the office with just this on my face and someone said I had that post-sex glow. It hadn't had sex, it was just Queen Screen ;)

Love the silky texture of this product and actually sits so well under makeup. Sexy bottle, sexy product, sexy face.
