80% of all signs of skin ageing are caused by sun exposure.* The first step to any anti-ageing skincare routine should start with a broad spectrum SPF 30 applied every day, even when it’s cloudy. UVB rays from the sun target the upper layers of the skin, causing sunburn and even skin cancer; while UVA rays penetrate deeper, devastating collagen and creating harmful free radicals which cause premature skin ageing.

Chemical vs Physical Sun Protection

There are two main types of sunscreen: physical and chemical. The main difference between physical sunscreens and chemical sunscreens is their mode of action. Chemical sunscreens penetrate into the skin and absorb UV rays, converting them into heat energy. Physical sunscreens generally sit on top of the skin; reflecting and scattering the UV rays like a mirror.
