Fun in the sun with NIVEA’s range of moisturisers with SPF
Walking out your front door to be greeted by the illuminating sunlight can brighten up your day. However, we cannot forget that the effects of UV light are invisible and unnoticeable to our eyes, and when your skin becomes overexposed to sunlight, it can result in possible skin concerns. It’s always better to be safe than sorry, as even in the winter or on cloudy days, your skin can still be exposed to UV rays. NIVEA recommends incorporating moisturisers with SPF into your morning routine to ensure that you are protected before leaving the comfort of your home.
What are the benefits of moisturisers with SPF
Moisturisers with SPF are easily integrated into your daily skincare routine. You will be able to reap the benefits of both, by having a moisturiser that maintains hydration in your skin with an additional layer of protection from UV rays. Daily moisturisers with SPF not only protect your skin but can also help to preserve your body's ability to produce collagen, a powerful protein that keeps your skin tight and firm. This makes the skin less prone to fine lines and wrinkles. When your skin ages, age spots may also occur on certain areas of your skin, often due to a lack of protection from the sun, which in turn, means that face moisturisers with SPF can help to maintain a youthful appearance.
When to use face moisturisers with SPF
Moisturisers with SPF should be used before you start your day, and NIVEA advises you to apply your moisturiser daily even if you do not leave your home. As mentioned, sun rays can penetrate your skin even during cloudy days, and this includes your windows as well, so it is better to be protected despite being indoors!
Finding your perfect daily moisturiser with SPF
NIVEA offers a wide range of moisturisers with SPF utilising a wide array of ingredients, including Q10, Bakuchiol, and Hyaluronic Acid. Look into picking a face cream with SPF that utilises the ingredients that will help nourish your skin. NIVEA’s Q10 Anti-Wrinkle Power Firming Day Cream SPF 15 uses the power of Q10 to effectively firm the skin and reduce wrinkles, regenerating and protecting the skin from premature skin ageing with SPF15.
Make sure to pick your daily moisturiser according to your skin type. This includes dry skin, oily, normal, or a combination of skin types. Different moisturisers are much more effective on different skin types, so do keep this in mind before applying your chosen day cream with SPF.
Moisturisers also come with different SPF factors. The SPF factor you use depends on your exposure to direct sunlight, so using higher SPFs like 30 and 50 are recommended when the UV index is high.
