Your SPF Questions Answered

5th September, 2019 by Kate Daniel

Should a sunscreen be used with a daytime moisturiser or can it be used in place of one?


Advanced sunscreens offer a lot more than just UVA & UVB protection, so yes a good product could be used in place of a moisturiser.

It would obviously depend on your skin type. If you had an oilier skin then you could just use a sunscreen alone. For a drier skin you would need to use a moisturiser or a Hyaluronic Acid serum underneath.


Shop moisturisers


I’ve got blemish-prone skin, could it make my breakouts worse?


Everyone needs to apply sunscreen even if you have acne and oily prone skin.

Choose an oil free, light lotion or gel formulation sunscreen. You can also consider a mineral/physical sunscreen as these are generally lighter and non-comedogenic.


Shop sunscreens


Do I need to re-apply sunscreen throughout the day?


Yes, especially during the summer months when you are spending prolonged periods of time outside in direct exposure to the sun.

Mineral powder is a great way to top up your protection throughout the day.

There is less need to re-apply sunscreen outside of the summer months.


Can sunscreen be used during pregnancy?


Of course, it is important for everyone to apply sunscreen.

During pregnancy, due to increased hormones your skin is prone to becoming supersensitive to UV light which can cause hyperpigmentation, so SPF is a must!
