Do you wear SPF everyday?
Mmmm the million dollar question? This depends entirely on lifestyle and where you live and of course if you are locked down at the moment! But generally speaking your answer should be a resounding YES!
I have Melanoma and I wish with all my heart that I had taken heed of such advice earlier than I actually did. It's so important and its life saving. #truth
Let's get down to sunscreen business
There are two types of rays you need to know about:
UVA Rays are the naughty skin aging rays that contribute to sunburn and wrinkles.
UVB Rays can also cause sunburn but most importantly play a key role in the development of skin cancer.
The nasties to look out for in most sunscreens
X - Oxybenzone - This is not only associated with many skin allergies it acts like estrogen in the body (excessive estrogen is linked with cancer ...mmm hello) There are two many things to really say in here.
But one thing is avoid with a capital A
X -Parabens - These are super common in sunscreens, cosmetics and hair care. Again allergy induces and hormone disruption. It's scarey stuff
X -The list goes on all of which are hormone disruptors. Octinoxte (known as Octylmethoxycinnamate) Homoslate, Paba and Retinyl Palmate. I'm still learning about these nasties and sad that I didn't know before I lathered myself up thinking I was protecting my skin and myself.

Like any sunscreen or anytime in the sun we would always recommend reapplying after two hours or at regular intervals throughout the day if possible!
