Be SPF Savvy
Foundations aren’t just about covering up, creating a flawless canvas or making your skintone appear more even.
They now play an important role in protecting the skin from everyday pollution and the sun’s harmful rays.
UV radiation is one of the main factors that causes the skin to age. Melanocytes—melanin-producing cells—begin to burn out when you reach your late thirties and forties, making it more difficult for your skin to fight sun damage.
Normal day to day living also exposes your skin to a variety of pollutants and exposes it to free radicals that can cause wrinkles, bumps, irritation and inflammation.
Therefore, it’s important to use products that protect the skin and keep it looking younger and healthier for longer.
As well as a powerful moisturiser and sun cream you should also wear a foundation containing SPF protection.
