SHOULD YOU WEAR SUNSCREEN INDOORS?

Simply put – YES darling! While you may not be planning a sun-soaked day on the beach or in the city, it’s important to still wear sunscreen with broad spectrum SPF while indoors. UV rays, whether the sun is shining or not, can still pass-through windows, and so windows don’t prevent the potentially harmful effects UV rays can cause to your skin like discolouration and dark spots, sagging skin, and wrinkles.

WHY SHOULD YOU WEAR SUNSCREEN?

Wearing a broad spectrum SPF sunscreen provides essential protection for your skin, every day! The main well-known benefit of wearing sunscreen is to protect your skin from burning and reddening, which can lead to serious skin damage. Without question, sunlight is one of the most damaging environmental aggressors that can damage the structure of your skin, with overexposure also likely to lead to fine lines and wrinkles, reduction in the appearance of skin’s elasticity, uneven tone, enlarged-looking pores, and causing loss of a youthful, radiant appearance.

Wearing sunscreen with broad spectrum SPF on your skin daily can help to reduce the appearance of signs of aging and keep skin looking youthful and healthy!

DO YOU NEED TO WEAR SUNSCREEN EVEN WHEN IT’S CLOUDY?

You should wear a broad spectrum SPF sunscreen every day, even when it’s cloudy outside! UV rays can still damage your skin whether you’re soaking up the sun or dreaming under the clouds! It’s essential to remember to apply your sunscreen every day as the last step in your skincare routine, and first step in your makeup routine!

Tilbury Tip: While outdoors on a cloudy day, your skin is not only exposed to UV rays; it’s also likely to be exposed to pollution. Like UV rays, pollution is known to cause damage the skin, with hydration and your natural skin barrier likely to be lost and damaged with too much unprotected exposure to polluted air.
