What SPF do I need for my face

At 27 Two 6 Beauty in Welling, we often are asked why we need to wear SPF everyday even in winter?


As the lash & skin specialists of welling & with so many year’s experience we know how vital SPF is. The best SPF to use is IMAGE Prevention plus, which is a physical not chemical SPF, it protects your DNA contains age busting stem cells & Blue light protection. You can order the very best SPF for face from our multi award winning salon in welling, we post out all over the UK from our online store.


One of the most important parts of your skincare routine, especially on sunny days. What most people don't realise is, it is also important to wear it on winter days/cloudy days because on cloudy days up to 80% of the sun's rays can pass through clouds & damage the skin, so if you assume its ok not to wear SPF on cloudy or winter days think again! Wearing SPF should be maintained all year round including the winter months. 


There are two types of UV rays that the sun lets off, UVA & UVB rays.


What are UVA Rays? UVA Rays are about every day of the year and penetrate all the way down to the dermis (dermis: where there is collagen and elastin) which causes premature aging and damage to collagen and elastin in the skin, can cause fine lines and wrinkles and loss of elasticity.


What are UVB Rays? UVB Rays are only about when it is hot and sunny, these rays cause the skin to burn and penetrate into the Epidermis, stimulate melanin and can result in an uneven complexion as well as redness and sunburn and will also cause aging.


Sun damage from UV rays causes photoaging of the skin, which is characterized by a thick, leathery look; discoloration and a breakdown of collagen, which causes lines, sagging and wrinkles and uneven pigmentation .

SPF also helps to prevent discoloration and maintain an even skin tone and helps to prevent dark spots from sun damage.


All UV exposure can suppress the skin's immune system and increase the risk for skin cancer. So it is important that your daily skin care routine includes sunscreen to block damage from both UVA & UVB Rays.


Our SPF (Prevention +) protects you from UVA, UVB Rays, DNA protection and blue light from phone screen/computer screen.
