This is the first in a series of tips for having healthy glowing skin.

Use SPF daily – even in winter

You can still be susceptible to UV damage on overcast days, and even in winter. Daily use of sunscreen, even when it’s not  sunny, can help to prevent significant damage.

Concerned about low vitamin D levels? Expose a larger body area (ie arms / legs) for a shorter period of time – 20 minutes is plenty. Also consider increasing healthy nutritional sources of vitamin D, such as fatty fish, mushrooms or eggs.

We recommend:

  • Rationale PhotoDynamic Light Activated Day Cream SPF 15 harnesses the power of light to simultaneously rejuvenate the skin and boost Vitamin D levels. Nutrients Zinc and Betacarotene protect and replenish, while light diffusing particles deliver immediate dewy luminosity.
