Your skincare regime is nothing without this product

Your skincare regime is nothing without this product

Your skincare regime is worth nothing if you do not include sunscreen in your daily routine.  

Not only does sunscreen prevent you from getting burnt, but it also helps prevent your skin from ageing by targeting both UVA and UVB rays. 

While moisturisers that include an SPF are better than nothing, they often neglect the prevalence of UVB protection – the ultraviolet beams associated with ageing. 

Therefore, applying a dedicated sunscreen, instead of purely relying on an SPF-containing moisturiser is essential. 

Sunscreens in Australia are approved by the Therapeutic Goods Administration, and the best ones are those which are broad spectrum. 

What types of sunscreens are available in Australia? There are physical and chemical sunscreens. Confused? Let us explain.

Physical sunscreens tend to be thick, and heavy, and work to absorb UV rays. This sunscreen is a popular choice at the beach and is normally white in colour.

Chemical sunscreens, on the other hand, are more transparent and easier to apply under make-up. They work by transmitting UV rays into heat energy. Your skin literally radiates the UV away!

While the thickness of a physical sunscreen may be a turn-off, aim to use both physical and chemical sunscreens for maximum protection. Alternatively, find a product that pairs the two together. More than anything though, it is important that you find a product that works for you so that application does not feel like a chore.

Regardless of your skin type, or the type of sunscreen that you use, you should always aim to apply it 15-20 minutes before heading outside and reapply every two hours – especially when swimming or wiping yourself down with a towel. You should always aim to use at minimum SPF 30 – but the higher, the better.
