Why is sunscreen important?
Using sunscreen every day, in addition to your personalised solution, is the single best thing you can do for your skin.
Studies have shown that using sunscreen alone can significantly improve your skin’s health, protecting it from the sun’s damaging UV rays and reducing the risk of developing skin cancer. Using sunscreen can also slow down the ageing process and reduce problems with pigmentation. Acne, skin texture, fine lines, wrinkles and pigmentation concerns are all affected, and worsened, by exposure to the sun.
Using acne and skin-ageing treatments will make your skin much more sensitive to the sun, and can increase the risks of post-acne pigmentation, which makes it all the more essential to use sunscreen every day.
We recommend that you always wear sunscreen when using your Skin + Me personalised solution. It’s not enough to use a moisturiser or makeup that contains sunscreen either, so we advise that you incorporate a designated broad-spectrum sunscreen, that has an SPF of at least 30 and protects against UVA and UVB rays, into your daily routine. In your My Account, you'll see My Routine, where you'll find recommendations from our expert Dermatology Team for the best SPFs for your skin type.
Your personalised solution should be applied every night, and you should apply your sunscreen every morning after you’ve cleansed.
