British weather doesn’t really raise much concern when it comes to sun protection. We have one week of sunshine each year – if we’re lucky – and this tends to be the only time that people are really bothered about protecting themselves from the sun, so this is pretty understandable, right? Wrong. Sun protection is important all year round whether you’re in the middle of the desert or rainy old Britain but a lot of people don’t realise it.
When it’s dull and raining outside it can be really easy to forget the damage that the sun’s rays can have on your skin – in fact it can be really easy to forget that the sun even exists at all. However, this doesn’t mean that you can afford to forget about sun screen.
A lot of people don’t think they need to worry about sun screen as they’re not exposed to the sun, but as the days once again get longer you probably don’t realise how much sun your skin is actually getting. When you consider the exposure on your way to and from work – even if you travel in a car – and when you’re on your break if you leave the office, you could even be affected if you sit by an open window.
The UV rays that the sun produces have an instant effect on collagen production and eventually cause fine lines and wrinkles that aren’t easy to shift. Dermalogica’s Dynamic Skin Recovery is a great product with SPF 30 protection so your skin will not only be protected, it will also be nourished and hydrated too.
