Wherever you are, however sunny it is, you’re never fully protected from the sun’s warming yet harmful rays. Before we dive into our complete edit of SPF products you can use all over to keep your skin nourished and protected no matter the weather and your location, let’s bust some common SPF myths!

SPF Facts: Did You Know?

Sun Protection Application > Sun Protection Factor

When it comes to picking our SPF we normally think, the higher the better, sure. However, it’s all about coverage and frequency of application. Whether you’re chilling in the garden or lying on a beach, it’s the topping up that counts rather than one application with the biggest factor you can find.

You Can Still Get Burnt Through A Window

Very true. Though you can’t get as badly burnt, you can still get some level of UVA rays and should still wear sunscreen even if you’re just driving in your car.

If I’m not burnt, is my skin ok?

Not quite. Any change in your skin’s colour after being exposed to the sun for a prolonged period of time is classed as damage. Burns are, of course, much worse for your skin but it’s still super important to keep your skin protected!

Now we’ve busted those SPF myths let’s take a look at the products offering us a helping hand…
