Summer Sun Safety
Did you know sun exposure is the main cause of UV damage and skin ageing? Prioritise sun safety and protect your skin this summer with one of Australia’s leading broad spectrum sunscreens.
Skin – our body’s biggest organ
Keeping our skin healthy and glowing is something many aspire to achieve, to maintain a youthful appearance. But did you know our sun habits contribute to our skin’s vitality, with around 80 per cent of premature skin ageing attributed to UV radiation? Sun exposure has been implicated as the main cause of photo ageing, which leads to changes such as spotted pigmentation, discoloration, wrinkles and leathery/rough textural changes. Wearing a high sun protection facial sunscreen every day can help protect against sun damage, pigmentation, premature ageing, wrinkles and skin cancer.

Sun safe skin – care instructions
SunSense sunscreens also have the additional benefits of added moisturisers and anti-oxidants, providing skincare as well as sunscreen.
