Just because the sun has gone into hibernation and the rain won’t stop pouring, doesn’t mean you can put your SPF to the back of your bathroom cabinet!
Whilst UVB rays do decrease in the winter months (the rays which cause burning of the skin) UVA are present all year round (yes even in the rain!). And 80% of UV radiation can also penetrate through clouds. This radiation causes fine lines, wrinkles and hyperpigmentation. This photo ageing of the skin also means the skin loses its ability to repair itself, leading to the breakdown of collagen. This is also the radiation that can lead to skin cancers.
So even as the weather takes a turn for the worse, please do remember to keeping wearing that factor 50 EVERY DAY! Rain or shine! ☀️ We have a variety of SPF options in clinic including @obagiuk @phformulauk and @heliocareuk if you need a top up!
