Lets Talk SPF and Protect our Skin!
Here at Outline Clinic, in Droitwich, Worcestershire we advise all to wear SPF (Sun protection) all year round.
There is an increased risk of skin cancer if the skin is not protected in the sun. Which is why we recommended to protect your skin every day, come rain or shine!
During sunnier seasons we recommended stepping up your SPF to a factor 50.
The products we recommend are safe to use every day and are safe to use post-Clinic procedures.
Sun damage can be long-lasting and cause many skin concerns such as hyper pigmentation, fine lines and wrinkles, poor skin texture and dull complexion.
What SPFs do Outline recommend?
Here at Outline Clinic in Droitwich, Worcestershire we only use cosmeceutical and pharmaceutical products, this means they are formulated with biologically active ingredients, proven to work. Most of us are now aware of the damaging effect UVA (ageing) and UVB (burning) rays have on our health and skin.
The product ranges we recommend for patients: ZO Skin health, ZO Medical, Obagi, Outline Signature Range and Heliocare combine broad spectrum sun protection in a beautiful perfume-free, light weight formula. The sun protector acts as a barrier to the damaging rays. & Don’t worry- you won’t get the horrible sticky thick cream often associated with high factor SPF’s. All products we recommend are light weight and suitable for all skin types.
My personal favourite SPF is Heliocare sun touch color
It’s just enough coverage for a ‘make up free’ feeling without showing off my occasional dark circles & open pores!
The product doesn’t give a full coverage like a foundation, it’s more like a lightweight tinted moisturiser feeling. I tend to wear it underneath my foundation.
I would describe the application as an easily absorbed lightweight gel, so it certainly doesn’t clog pores! Yes- the packaging isn’t so glam, but I’m investing in product quality here, not for a pretty glass bottle. I use this product every day and reapply when in direct sun light. If you want to do just 1 kind thing for your skin, this is it!
Love it. It’s a 10/10 from me
