SPF stands for Sun Protection Factor (SPF). The level of SPF in a sunscreen or moisturiser demonstrates its ability to delay sun-induced damage. The higher the level of SPF, the more protection it offers against UVB – the ultraviolet radiation rays which causes sunburn. Sun damage is the number one cause of premature aging, proactive wrinkles and hyper pigmentation. Dullness, discoloration and uneven skin tone can also be a result of skin that has been damaged by the sun’s harmful rays.

We might have a mental picture of a heavy white consistency from watching movies in the 80’s but beauty manufacturers have found a way to make every form of SPF lightweight, instantly absorbent and just as effective. Applying during your moisturizing will make staying protected a breeze. The only kind of behavior we want to be indulging in this season.
