Spring Health & Beauty Tip 6 – Don’t rely on SPF in Moisturiser

Now the weather is getting nicer, we are heading outside more and some are thinking their face is covered by the SPF in their moisturiser.  Most moisturisers have SPF in them nowadays and whilst that is great, there are a few things you need to think about….

  • When do you put your moisturiser on?  I’m guessing first thing in the morning when you get out the shower.
  • When do you head out in the sun in your day?  I’m guessing during your lunch break.
  • When do you reapply your moisturiser to top up the SPF?  I’m guessing you don’t!  Especially if you are a woman and have your make-up on.

SPF only lasts for 4 hours!

If you out your moisturiser on at 7am by 11am its ineffective.  As well as causing cancer UV rays also cause wrinkles and who wants either of those!

So just be aware, you do need to reapply your SPF during the day if you want to be protected.

Enjoy the sunshine!
