GREAT SPF SAVVY - With skin cancer on the rise in the UK, it can’t be overstated how important it is to wear an SPF. And we don’t just mean on your body whilst you sunbathe – wear one on your face to not only protect your health, but also to stave off premature ageing too. A recent study found that sun damage can account for up to 80 per cent of premature ageing – that includes fine lines, wrinkles and pigmentation. In fact, the World Health Organisation estimates that the percentage is actually even higher. They explained in a recent report, “Chronic overexposure to the sun can change the texture and weaken the elasticity of the skin. Sun induced skin damage causes premature wrinkling, sags and bags, and easy bruising. Up to 90 per cent of the visible changes commonly attributed to ageing may be caused by sun exposure.”
