The dangers of high SPFS

We used to get asked a lot why we only recommend an SPF 1️⃣5️⃣ when there are much higher SPFs available? Now so many of our clients return for their faithful factor 1️⃣5️⃣ saying they wouldn’t use anything else🙌🏻 But why? It's logical to assume that an SPF 3️⃣0️⃣ provides twice the protection of an SPF 1️⃣5️⃣ right? Wrong! It only blocks 4% more rays... (SPF 15 blocks 93% | SPF 30 blocks 97%) High SPFs can give a false sense of security, meaning people tend to reapply them less often. Not only that but they contain a much greater level of potentially harmful chemicals and most only indicate the protection against UVB rays (the ones that cause burning) not UVA rays (the ones that cause ageing) We need added protection when it comes to UVA rays, which come in the form of antioxidants👾. These eat up the free radicals generated in the skin from UV exposure, minimising the damaging effects☀️ So what do we recommend for the ultimate protection? 😎Environ's Antioxidant sunscreen RAD or Alpha Day and a daily dose of ANPs Skin antioxidant💊 Check out this fantastic read 🤓 And be safe in the sun and clouds!☝🏻☀️☁️
