Spring is fast approaching and with it longer days filled with sunshine, time spent outdoors and long, relaxing walks. It is therefore vital to incorporate sun protection into your daily routine. Anti-aging skincare is of little use when sun protection is missing from your beauty routine. Sun protection products should be the be-all and end-all of your routine. Be sure not to focus solely on the areas that are the most susceptible to sunburn. The face, lips and hair should be protected as well.
1. Day cream with SPF
The face is susceptible to damage caused by UV rays therefore it must be protected at all costs. A day cream with SPF is recommended to prevent premature skin aging. The main function of sunscreen is to protect the skin against UV rays. A day cream with an SPF protects, nourishes and repairs the skin.
2. Protect the skin all year round
Ideally, sun protection should be integrated into your daily skincare routine - during summer and winter. As little as 20 minutes of sun exposure a day adds up to 120 hours of UV exposure a year. Your skin will thank you for every day that it is protected against the harmful effects of the sun.

3. Protection for the eye and lip region
The most sensitive areas of the skin - that are coincidentally the parts of the skin that are more susceptible to UV damage - are often neglected. When exposed to direct sunlight, it is advised to protect the lips with a balm.
Tip: The rich textures of lip care products can be used on the eye region too!
Even though the hair does not show any signs of sunburn, it is essential to protect it from UV rays. Because the head is oftentimes exposed to the sun, it can weaken the keratin structure of the hair and, at times, this can lead to hair damage. In order to counteract this, it is advised to use a shampoo with UV protection or sun protection oil.
