BONUS TIP: SPF
SPF might be our bonus tip but it should always be a given in your morning routine. UVA and UVB rays are incredibly harmful to your health. The damaging rays can harm DNA and cause dangerous mutated skin cells. Using a 30+ SPF is necessary not only to reduce the signs of aging and sun damage but to care for your health and reduce the likelihood of cancerous growths. Applying, and reapplying an SPF is easy and many tinted moisturisers will provide you with great sun protection as well as a light coverage tint. We are all committed to keeping our children's sun smart, don’t forget yourself!
