Is it important to use SPF everyday?

Using sunscreen is one of the best and easiest ways to protect your skin from the sun at any age. If used regularly, it can help prevent sunburn, cancer and premature ageing.

What is SPF?

Sun Protection Factor (SPF) is a sunscreen's ability to protect us from a certain amount of ultraviolet (UVB) radiation, called UVB. UVB rays directly affect sunburn and cancer. There are two other types of UV radiation: UVC rays (which do not pass through the Earth's atmosphere) and UVA rays (which can also cause pigmentation, melanoma, i.e. skin cancer, as well as ageing). A broad-spectrum sunscreen protects against both UVB and UVA rays. Usually, it is a product that contains spf protection with a specific label - 15, 20, 30 or 50.

Should I use sunscreen daily? 

Yes, because ultraviolet rays are so powerful that even 15 minutes spent outdoors is enough to cause damage and lead to skin aging, developing cancer in the long term. This is evidenced by research by American oncologists who have studied the harmful effects of the sun on the human body.

A scientific study, dated 2016, showed that windscreen glass can reflect around 96 per cent of UV rays. However, most windows can only block 44 per cent, while sunglasses can block 95 per cent or more.

Why can ageing skin be dangerous?

What most people don't know is that UVA rays penetrate the body at all times of the year and lead to dire consequences. Harmful UVA and UVB rays can easily reach the earth through windows, car windows or overcast weather. Constant UV radiation damages the DNA of skin cells and the microbiome. This leads to pigmentation, dryness and wrinkles. The consequence is premature ageing and even melanoma. That's why applying SPF regularly is not only sun protection for your face and body, but also against cancer!

How can I protect my skin from the sun?

Dermatologists recommend avoiding walks during the period of active sunshine - between 11 a.m. and 4 p.m. But that's not the only tip to help protect your skin. It's also a good idea to wear clothing that covers the exposed parts of the body, a panama or cap and closed, but lightweight shoes. A must-have is the application of a face cream with SPF. Such products can be easily ordered in the online shop.

How to apply SPF?

Members of the American Academy of Dermatology recommend applying sunscreen every morning as part of your daily skin care routine. A sufficient amount of sunscreen should be applied daily to the face, neck, chest and ears to prevent the harmful effects of the sun. The amount of cream should be according to the rule of two fingers of the hand - index and middle.

What is BB cream?

BB cream is a kind of 'blemish balm' or 'beauty balm' in translation, but it means more than just a regular face cream. BB creams are specifically designed to act. It's a 3-in-1 product: create the perfect make-up base, be a primer and moisturiser all at the same time. Its smooth texture also allows it to act as a primer, smoothing the skin tone for a flawless make-up application.

Our BB cream with SPF 20, for example, is a lightweight care product with UV protection. Its safe, next-generation mineral filters protect against 95% of UVA, UVB and artificial blue light from gadgets. This helps prevent the destruction of collagen and elastin, the appearance of wrinkles and age spots resulting from exposure to UV radiation throughout the year.

It is suitable for all skin types, especially for oily and problematic skin, as it does not weigh the skin down and does not cause clogged pores. In addition to sun protection and toning, the BB cream cares for the skin throughout the day - it moisturizes, nourishes and restores the skin's barrier.

It is available from 18 to 30 April with a -10% discount.
