Sunscreen for face: For brighter, more even looking skin

Adding a sunscreen to your beauty regime is just as important, if not more so, than applying a moisturiser or cleanser. Whatever the weather, you should always be wearing an SPF, especially on your face. An SPF can protect your skin from harmful UVA and UVB rays which can damage skin all year round. Skincare experts will often recommend applying a sunscreen on to your face every morning after moisturising but before your makeup. It’s also worth noting that you should be applying this 20 minutes before heading out to give it time to absorb into the skin so it really works as a protective layer.

A Dermatologist On Anti-Pollution Skincare

We think of air pollution as being a problem of smog bound Asian cities. But a 2018 WHO report showed that particulate matter air pollution exceeds health limits in the UK too, not just in London but York, Leeds, Leicester, Leamington Spa and many other towns. As for nitrogen oxides (which come principally from car exhausts), some streets in London have exceeded their annual safe limits by the end of the first month of 20181.
