YES-PF! Why Sunscreen is for EVERY DAY!
Wearing sunscreen is the most effective way to protect your skin from sun damage and premature ageing. Most of us know the importance of wearing sunscreen in the summer months to avoid sunburn, but it really should be a year-round preventive health measure. Even on the cloudiest of days, your skin is susceptible to the sun’s UVA rays, so even though you may not burn, you are still at risk of premature ageing and skin damage.
So why should we wear sunscreen daily?
Protects Your Skin from UV Rays
Ultraviolet (UV) light damages the skin and its underlying connective tissue, leading to the development of wrinkles and lines. Harmful UV rays are not only present on a warm summer’s days but also on cloudy days. Skin damage from UV rays is cumulative – meaning it’s not immediately evident how much damage your skin has taken, this can start to show over time when it’s too late to reverse the damage.
Prevent Premature Ageing
Sun damage from UV rays causes ageing of your skin. This ageing takes the form of developing a thick, leathery look. This might also be accompanied by discolouration like age spots, and a breakdown of collagen. The breaking down of collagen contributes to lines, sagging and wrinkles. Wearing a sunscreen daily helps maintain a more even skin tone and help slow down the depletion of our collagen.
Lower the Risk of Skin Cancer
90% of skin cancers can be attributed to sun damage, which means sun protection is essential to your long-term health and wellbeing.Regular daily use of sunscreen sunscreen can reduce your risk of developing squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) by about and lower your melanoma risk.
REFORM Skincare SPF 30 Sunscreen is natural solution for sun care. This formula offers a non-greasy, non-whitening, easily spreadable, broad-spectrum solution with mineral sunscreen only (Zinc Oxide).
Did you know what SPF actually means? The number tells you how long the sun’s UV rays would take to burn your skin compared to how long it would take to burn your skin without sunscreen. So, if you use an SPF 30 product properly, it would take you 30 times longer to burn than if you used no sunscreen.
REFORM Skincare SPF 30 Sunscreen is enriched with panthenol and vitamin E.
Panthenol also known as pro-vitamin B5, maintains skin hydration and protects the skin barrier. It also interacts with lipids and proteins in dry skin to improve hydration and elasticity. Panthenol helps the skin to self-repair.
Vitamin E is a fat-soluble, essential nutrient with anti-inflammatory properties. Vitamin E is also powerful antioxidant that may be effective at reducing UV damage in skin. Topically applied vitamin E may help nourish and protect your skin from damage caused by free radicals. Vitamin E easily absorbs into skin. Topical use via creams or other products may increase the amount of vitamin E stored within the sebaceous glands.
