Hydrate and Protect Your Skin at the Same Time

With the depleting ozone layer, it is extremely important that you and everybody else apply a sunscreen to protect your skin from the harmful effects of the UVB and UVA rays of the sun.

This is especially true if you are planning to stay under the sun for more than 15 minutes.

Benefits of a facial moisturiser with SPF

Skin expert Bali Body states that something as simple as wearing sunscreen can prevent premature skin ageing and the development of sunspots and other skin discolourations. But, more importantly, you can avoid developing a form of skin cancer.

A moisturiser with SPF, on the other hand, does more than just protect you from the damaging rays of the sun. It also helps maintain the ability of your skin to produce collagen by keeping it hydrated at all times.

What about Vitamin D?

Even if you always apply sunscreen all over your body, you can still have a healthy dosage of 600 IU or 15mcg a day through the intake of food rich in vitamin D like milk, fish, dairy, eggs, and liver. You can also take vitamin D supplements.

However, if you really want to get it from the sun, a 5 to 30-minute outdoor activities twice a week will do.

Using a facial moisturiser with sunscreen?

Many beauty product manufacturers recognise the need for a facial moisturiser with SPF because who wants to keep applying sunscreen on top of their moisturiser? Aside from the expense of having to buy two products, it also takes extra effort to apply both on top of each other.

A facial moisturiser with SPF, on the other hand, is already a two-in-one product. It saves you from having to buy two products.

Facial moisturisers with SPF should be a staple in everyone’s daily skincare regime as it does not only hydrate the skin, it also protects it from the harmful rays of the sun. But of course, you cannot just use any moisturiser. You still have to consider your skin type.
