Let’s get real. Sunscreen is the most important step of a skincare routine. Yes, even before your beloved exfoliants and your retinols. It is a very important step to get right and realistically, if you can’t get this step right then there’s no point to the rest of your skincare routine. Want to know why? Let’s chat about it below.
Fun fact: UV exposure is said to account for up to 80% of the visible signs of ageing. This basically means that if you are wearing SPF every day and staying out of the sun, then you are working at preventing this from happening.

Plus, if you want to start using stronger ingredients in your routine it’s additionally going to help protect your skin from any increased skin sensitivities that may be made worsened by the sun.
