This year we launched our popular Hello Sunshine SPF as a new British Summer Time Sensitive Sunscreen . We are often asked many questions about using a sunscreen factor as part of your skin care routine. It is often a problem for people with sensitive skin – from acne to eczema – because SPFs can be very thick formulas. However, wearing a sunscreen factor is incredibly important for the general health of our skin. That is why we worked hard to develop a formula that is suitable for all sensitive skin types.
In this article we answer all your frequently asked questions about SPF. From the suitability of SPF for different skin types, whether it is acne-prone or dry skin, to the question of whether SPF is safe for pregnancy.
Should SPF be used next to a moisturizer or day cream?
Although our sunscreen has moisturizing properties for the British summer time, a sun protection factor is not sufficient to supply the skin with moisture alone. We therefore recommend applying a moisturizer underneath. Wait until your moisturizer is completely absorbed, then add your sun protection factor.
Is SPF suitable for acne-prone skin?
Whether SPF is good for acne prone skin is a common problem. This is because SPFs are notoriously thick products to protect your skin from UV rays. Fortunately, our sun protection factor is suitable for all skin types, making it a good choice for acne-prone skin.
Even if you are not wearing makeup, it is important to double-clean every evening to ensure that you remove your sun protection factor completely. This will help avoid mistakes or jams.
Do I have to reapply my face protection factor all day long?
We understand that you won't want to reapply your sun protection factor once you've put on your makeup and are on your way to start your day. That is why our sun protection should be worn under makeup all day. You shouldn't need to reapply your sun protection factor unless you spend a long time outdoors with direct sunlight.
Can SPF be used during pregnancy?
Regarding the use of our sun protection factor during pregnancy, it is entirely up to you and how well you can deal with essential oils. To be on the safe side, we recommend using it from the second trimester. We have a range of pregnancy safe skin care products that can be used from the first day of your pregnancy.
Is SPF suitable for eczema?
We use non-irritating ingredients in our sun protection factor. We have also carried out patch test on sensitive skin prone to eczema so that you know that you are in safe hands.
Is the SPF gluten free?
Yes! It's gluten free, but there are some derivatives of wheat. However, the gluten proteins themselves do not trickle the process into the product.
Is SPF suitable for dry skin?
Our sun protection factor was developed for all skin types, including dry and dehydrated skin. Although our sunscreen contains zinc, we also use jojoba oil. This has a good affinity for the skin and helps it to stay hydrated in the sun.
Can the packaging be recycled?
Yes! The pipe itself is made of polyethylene from sugar cane and can therefore be recycled. The cap is made of polypropylene and is recyclable (you may need to check with your local recycling company first). Both have to be washed and recycled separately.
If you are concerned about your admission, it may be worth consulting with a naturopath.
