☀️ S U N S C R E E N - The jam in the sandwich of CSA (S for sunscreen) is just as important as vitamins C and A. Here’s why…
Did you know 80% of all signs of skin ageing are caused by sun exposure?
That’s why @officialmedik8 prescribe minimum broad-spectrum sunscreen as an integral part of their CSA philosophy:
Vitamin C plus Sunscreen by day, vitamin A by night.
UVA vs UVB
Even when it’s cloudy, UV rays can penetrate your skin, causing no end of damage. UVB rays target the upper layers of the skin, causing sunburn and can even contribute to skin cancer. UVA rays penetrate deeper, devastating collagen and creating harmful free radicals which cause premature skin ageing.
All sunscreens have an SPF rating that corresponds directly to their level of protection against UVB rays. But a high SPF is not enough. SPF has no bearing on how much protection you are getting from UVA rays.
Look out for the label ‘broad spectrum’ or the UVA star rating system to get to the bottom of exactly how well your sunscreen protects you from UVA.
A ‘broad spectrum’ classification indicates that the UVA protection is at least one-third of the UVB protection.
FIVE STAR UVA
The star system indicates various ratios of UVA to UVB protection. All Medik8 sunscreens are at least broad spectrum, with their Advanced range of day creams hitting the highest 5* rating of Ultra UVA protection.
ENJOY USING SUNSCREEN
Forget that yucky, greasy feeling when you slather on sun lotion. Medik8 spf day creams are smooth as silk. You wouldn't even know you're getting protection. And they avoid the controversial filters too.
