SPF is short for sun protection factor. As we come to the end of summer and hotter days are behind us, we shouldn't forget one thing, SPF.
Why is it important to wear SPF?
SPF works by extending your skin’s natural defenses against the sun’s rays. For example, an SPF of 15 provides about 15 times more protection than just your normal skin without sunscreen. An SPF of 50, then, would provide 50 times more protection than skin without sunscreen. Choosing a broad-spectrum sunscreen means it’s a type of sunscreen that will block out both UVA and UVB rays.
Do I have to re-apply?
Sunscreen lasts on an average of two hours, meaning reapplying is also important factor to consider.

Hello Sunday - The One That's A Serum SPF45
An alternative approach to sun protection, this light textured, moisturising SPF45 serum is built to protect against UVA/UVB and Infrared rays. Not only is it designed to shield you against sun damage and prevent ageing, but it also protects you from other daily aggressors such as blue light and pollution.
Enriched with hyaluronic acid and vitamin C, this fragrance-free serum is best used as the last step within your skincare routine. You can also add a few drops in to your daily moisturiser or foundation for added protection.
Using sunscreen is an important way to reduce negative side effects from harmful UVA and UVB radiation from the sun. Adults of all ages and skin color should use at least an SPF of 30 during all outdoor activities. Children over 6 months old should wear a cream-based sunscreen of at least SPF 30.
