SPF and why it is not just a thing for holiday.

The main issue people have when they come in to see me is ageing concerns followed by pigmentation. The issue with SPF use, in this country at least, is that it is seen as a 'holiday' item or for the odd day out at the beach. UV rays are present whenever it is light, even when cloudy you are exposed to UVA, which is the long-wave band that causes wrinkles and pigmentation. Both UVA and UVB contribute to causing skin cancer. If you are not familiar with the different types, you are not alone. Quite often 'broad spectrum' protection is mentioned. This means that it provides protection against UVA and UVB, and should be the base standard you look for when choosing an SPF product. Now, here is where is starts to get complicated (and hopefully explained). SPF is not a specific amount of protection as such, it indicates how long it will take for UVB to redden the skin (UVB is the main cause of sunburn as it affects the top layers of the skin more).

If we take an SPF 15 it will mean it takes your skin 15 times longer to redden your skin than your skin would normally do without sunscreen (remember your skin is different to other people and you may redden quicker). It also screens approximately 93% of the sun's UVB rays. SPF 30 protects up to 97% and SPF 50 up to 98%. So when choosing what SPF to use we need to look at a few different factors. Day to day is a simple start. If you work in an office or indoors you are unlikely to need a high SPF. Although UVA can penetrate glass, UVB doesn't so easily. So a lower factor is perfectly fine depending on your skin. If you work by windows, maybe think about raising your SPF level. When it comes to outside working a higher SPF can be used. And if you have a manual job outside and are prone to sweating, try a water resistant SPF. Holidays are a time when you might find it beneficial to raise your SPF always remembering to reapply regularly and recognising that water resistant does not mean water proof!

Before you go away or even if you are looking at year round sun protection keep in mind I am here to have a chat with you about your options and have a wide range of solutions from Dermalogica® the brand developed in the land of perpetual sunshine, California (making it a brand that takes sun protection seriously).

New product launch and April promotions

April promotions and a competition (it's a very good prize, grab a cup of tea, sit down and read right through to the bottom) -

April sees the launch of Charcoal Rescue Masque. This all round wonder masque purifies skin using Binchotan Charcoal to draw out oil. Brightens skins with Volcanic Ash, Sea Silt and Bamboo Extract, while Alpha Hydroxy Acids accelerate skin turnover and renewal. Niacinamide calms the skin, reducing redness and helps tackle congested pores. Chilean Wild Mint Leaf Extract improves skin texture and reduces pore visibility. While Sulphur removes dulling dead skin cells and combats breakout causing bacteria. This masque provides visible results after one use (my skin looked so bright after just one application). You can multi-masque or target certain areas, but as this masque is suitable for all skin types it is pretty much an all round treat for any condition. The masque is priced at £38 and for the month of April, when you purchase a tube of Charcoal Rescue Masque you get a microZone® for free!
