sk:n Sunscreen SPF 30 100ml
The importance of protecting your skin, The outer layer of the skin, the epidermis, is the skin’s barrier and can be damaged through exposure to the elements, chemicals, effects of the sun, some skin diseases, cuts and abrasions. This may impair the barrier function leaving the skin dry, cracked and vulnerable to infection, viruses, bacteria and other attack.
Over-exposure to the sun is a key cause of skin damage:
UVA= Ages. We’re exposed to this element of UVR 365 days a year, UVB= Burns. We’re exposed to this element of UVR when the sun is out and warm
Without protection, just a few minutes of exposure to UVR each day over the years can cause noticeable changes to the skin from UVA and UVB rays, particularly to fairer skin types. Most skin damage is initially hidden: it isn’t until we get older that it is evident.

I have used this product for years but the formula has changed. It seems drier than before and less moisturising which is a shame because it was perfect the way it was for me. That said it is a decent SPF30 but you will need a moisturiser too. Delivery was super quick
