4 Reasons Why You Should Invest In a Broad Spectrum Sunscreen All Year Round
By Stef Crowley-Clough
Because you can’t hide from UV rays. Those suckers hang around all year!
Anytime the UV index is above 3, you are at risk of sun damage. Around many parts of Australia, this is a regular occurrence throughout autumn and winter. So if you’re outside or driving for extended periods of time, wear sunscreen. UVA rays can also easily penetrate windows all year round, including the ones in your car!
Because it’s not just sunburn you should be worrying about.
There’s a misconception that you only need to wear sunscreen to protect against sunburn. This is only half the story. It’s extremely important to wear a broad spectrum SPF daily as it protects against harmful UVA & UVB rays. UVA is responsible for skin ageing and UVB is what generates a "burn", or redness to the skin. Both can contribute to skin cancers, including deadly melanomas.
Because no single skincare product can protect against the visible signs of ageing like a broad spectrum sunscreen.
Sun exposure is responsible for most visible signs of ageing (as much as 90% according to the World Health Organisation). Every time you expose your skin to the sun, it ups your risk of damage at a cellular level. If you aren’t wearing a broad spectrum sunscreen as part of your daily skin regime, then it’s about time you started! Wearing one will also help keep your skin tone even by preventing skin discolouration and brown spots.
Because a good SPF really is the best anti-ageing move you will ever make!
Our sunscreen range is perfect for the face* (yep that’s right, we designed them for face and body) because we have included Vitamin E for antioxidant and anti-ageing benefits, as well as emollients (moisturisers) to nourish and hydrate the skin.
Forget what you thought sunscreen was (greasy, thick, oily, leaves a white cast) and say hello to the future of sunscreen, We Are Feel Good Inc. It’s like you’re not wearing a sunscreen at all!
