the sunscreens to help protect your skin

Sunscreen is your most important beauty item. Whether you’re outside for work or pleasure your skin still gets exposed every time you step outside.

The purpose of sunscreen is to protect your skin against UVA and UVB rays; UVB rays cause sunburn whereas UVA rays are what causes pigmentation and premature signs of ageing.

Ideally you want a product that does both. Last year SPF 50+ products were introduced to the Australian market, giving us more choice than ever.
