Taking good care of my skin has been a passion of mine for the last 20 years, I learned early on that it is key to use a quality SPF cream, as the sun’s rays have the biggest effect on ageing the skin and can cause harm in more health damaging ways. Whether that be UVB damage causing the skin to burn, peel and blister or UVA damage attacking the collagen fibres deep in the epidermis making us age quicker. The shocking statistic is UVA damage doesn’t show on the skin straight away, it can take upto 10 years to show the damage you have caused, which is a scary thought. I know that sounds a bit heavy but I want you all to take this information seriously.
Alpha H have recently launch their #allaboutSPF campaign to raise awareness around skin cancer and sun-induced aging. In the Summer heat there are constant reminders in the press or advertisements offering us the best deals to use sun protection, so that we can stay out longer in the sun without burning. But using SPF should be an all year round ritual that we all should practice, as even on cloudy days UV rays can still penetrate the skin and cause a cumulative sun damaging and skin ageing effect. I know it may not be the most glamourous product to buy when you see exciting big campaigns for the latest anti-ageing or skin radiance products, but I want you to think about one thing, do you want your skin to look as good as it does now in 5 years time? If you answer is yes then you need to be using sun protection on a daily basis.
“I recently started using the Alpha H Daily Essential Moisturiser SPF 50+ as my daily sun protection factor. This lightweight high protection cream, provides the skin with hydration and rich in the antioxidant benefits of Vitamin E and Aloe Vera to combat premature ageing whilst actively protecting you from UV rays. It leaves the skin with a velvety finish, that isn’t heavy or greasy which is perfect for a male skin and i’ve found it works great as a mattifying primer.”
TIP: If you’re not using a daily SPF then I would suggest trying this moisturiser as it provides protection which is easy and simple to use.
Alpha-H are spreading a Sharing is Caring message with the #allaboutSPF campaign, as it is a shared responsibility to keep friends and family safe. I am always asking friends and family if they have applied their SPF today, but its only because I care. You can purchase this Daily Essential Moisturiser SPF50+ direct from the Alpha H website, QVCUK or Look Fantastic in a 50ml size for £29.
