The Truth about Sun Protection

The sun is vital for healthy skin, it helps the skin regenerate and is a natural source of vitamin D- but it can also be damaging or even deadly. Sunburn is just the beginning of wrinkles, pigmentation and more seriously skin cancers and all are products of too much sun exposure.

To help the clients of Westbourne Beauty Clinic understand more about sun protection we have translated the labels for you and included some tips.


Ultraviolet (UV) light is found in sunlight, filters through the atmosphere and can penetrate your skin layers. The Two types UVA and UVB- affect skin in different ways. UVA: Think A for ageing. The effects are not immediately visible but in time the damage will emerge in the form of pigmentation, freckles and wrinkles. As well as being a catalyst for ageing UVA reaches the skins deepest layers damaging the cells structure and causing mutation in the DNA.

For UVB think B for burning. UVB will blister and increase the liklyhood of developing skin cancer.

To protect yourself from both you should ensure your sunscreens have a chemical and a physical filter. A chemical filter means the sunscreen should be applied 20mins before exposure and it will neutralise the UV light through a chemical process when it hits the skin. A physical filter means the product contains Titanium Dioxide or Zinc Oxide to reflect the UV light away from the skin.

If you have sensitive skin also look at the other ingredients like antioxidants or vitamins as they will be gentler of the skin.

At The Westbourne Beauty Clinic we are proud to recommend two sun protection products these are RAD by Environ SPF 15 and Elemis Liquid Layer SPF 30. Both products are broad sunscreens protecting against UVA and UVB rays, water resistant, formulated with the mineral Titanium Dioxide.
