Did you know short exposure to UVB radiation generates vitamin D, but can also lead to sunburn depending on the individuals’ skin type? Fortunately for life on Earth, our atmospheres stratospheric ozone layer shields us from most UV radiation.

However, what does get through the ozone layers cracks, can cause the following problems :

  • Skin Cancer
  • Cataracts
  • Suppression of the immune system
  • Premature aging of the skin

So moral of the story… ALWAYS wear good quality sun protection!

One of my new favourite must have sunscreens is Sunfilm SPF 30 from Juliette Armand.

SUNFILM FACE GEL SPF30

Sunfilm SPF 30 is a Tinted Sun Gel for the Face. A revolutionary product, as it adapts to all skin tones and leaves the skin feeling light & fresh and without the white, filmy oily residue that some sunscreens have.

A little more on the product:

  • Guaranteed sun protection is the key feature of the product. State-of-the-art, and highly efficient broad-spectrum sun filters have been chosen to meet the strictest standards; such as the Australian standard for UV-A rays. They also provide complete protection from UV-B rays (with SPF 2-55).
  • With revolutionary ANTITOXTM ensures the antioxidant properties of sunscreen products with high protection factors. It is an innovative and powerful new-generation antioxidant cocktail with the revolutionary self-regenerating mechanism of its antioxidant ingredients. The mechanism is activated during the action of these ingredients, as opposed to common antioxidants which are counteracted during their action.
  • Available in Sunscreens SPF 30 & SPF 50 and contains organic and inorganic filters against UV radiation. When inorganic filters (TiO2 & ZnO) are applied to the skin, they produce a “white coloration” effect. For reversing this effect, a very light tint has been added, which maintains skin’s natural tone without covering properties. The tint has been added for the purpose of the skin not looking whitened, especially when it comes in contact with water.

This light weight gel will add a subtle glow to the skin, leaving it looking fresh and healthy.
