You know I never miss an opportunity to talk about sunscreen as skincare. It is key component of even the most basic routine and I believe it is one product no one should go without. So when social media told me that May is Skin Cancer Awareness Month, I knew this was my chance to return to my favourite topic.
As the end of summer approaches, you may be thinking about the effect that sun has had on your skin over the past few months. It’s easy to see the damage we do when our skin burns. However, what we can’t see in real time is how UVA damages our skin and this is what brings us to today’s spotlight ingredient: ferulic acid.
It’s as simple as that. If you are serious about protecting and preserving your skin, you must apply sunscreen every day. Even when it’s cloudy.
Summer's over and it's time to put away the sun cream. Or should you keep it as part of your essential skincare routine?
