Why wearing a moisturiser with an spf will protect your delicate skin

by Tracey on March 1, 2018

Wearing a daily SPF protection is the foundation to for maintaining healthy skin.  Up to 85% of the visible signs of ageing comes from the skin not being protected against UV radiation.  Daily moisturisation is important in keeping the skin hydrated all day but its the SPF which will protect your skin from the ultraviolet rays which are emitted daily from the sun (I like to say daylight as people still link UV protection to hot sunshine only).  UV radiation is the main cause of cancer and is also responsible for tanning, ageing, and sunburns.

Which moisturisers with SPF is right for you

In this blog, I will briefly highlight the benefits of each of the Image Skincare Prevention+ moisturisers for the four main skin types.  All of their Prevention+ products contain DNA protection complex which is extra protection enzymes to reverse UV damage.   The main ingredient in all 5 products is zinc and titanium oxide.  Image Skincare Prevention+ are all physical SPFs which means that the UV rays bounce off the skin and does not penetrate the skin like chemical SPFs which do which can cause irritation.  All are broad spectrum containing both UVA & UVB protection and are free from parabens.
