WHY IS SPF SO IMPORTANT FOR YOUR SKIN?

Good news for your skin! SPF is becoming part of our skincare and beauty products. But what makes it so essential? What are the benefits of adding SPF to skincare products? 75 percent of skin ageing is due to environmental factors, especially UV rays. By using SPF skincare every day, you can diminish the potentially damaging effects of UV rays. Discover where to find SPF, and how it can help your skin...

5 WAYS SPF CAN HELP YOUR SKIN

Anti-aging properties

SPF has considerable benefits for your skin, notably protecting it from UV rays that cause wrinkles, loss of firmness, dullness and uneven pigmentation. Products with added SPF, when applied regularly, have been proven to help prevent these visible signs of ageing. Divine Cream SPF 20 protects the skin against damage cause by UV rays while visibly reducing signs of ageing.

Multi-tasking all-year-round

SPF isn't just for sunscreen. When you use everyday beauty products with SPF included, such as L'Occitane's Peony CC Cream and Precious BB Cream, you can help protect your skin from UV damage as well as benefit from the perfecting and youthful properties of the cream. Multi-tasking! But why do you need added Sun Protection Factor away from the beach? You might not know it, but you are also vulnerable to sun damage in the city, where pollution and UV rays are a bad combination for your skin. It's not limited to the summer either: you're still exposed to UV rays in the winter, and the cold temperatures can often mean you don't notice the exposure.

Cutting-edge Formulae

L'Occitane's skincare range uses innovative and tailored formulae to provide hydration while remaining light and comfortable to wear. The Precious and Divine face creams, for example, have been reinforced  with SPF to be worn under makeup or alone, with none of the residual shine or stickiness that are often associated with SPF. Not only do they help protect your skin from UV rays, but they work throughout the day to help prevent the visible signs of ageing associated with sun exposure.

Protect from Head to hands

In addition to your face and the neck area, hands are constantly exposed to UV rays. Hands are one of the first areas to show signs of ageing (dark spots, slackening, etc.), so the Almond Velvet Hands SPF 15 is perfect for keeping in your purse and applying whenever you need a dose of moisture

Achieve the Perfect Skin Tone



Some people enjoy a sunkissed finish to their skin, whereas others prefer to stay untouched by the sun's rays. Either way, SPF should be an essential part of your beauty routine: the World Health Organization recommends an SPF of at least 15. Whether you're planning to catch some rays on the lounger, or stay out of the sun under a parasol, use a cream with this recommended SPF that must be reapplied every 2 hours to protect your skin while working continuously to achieve the skin tone you've been dreaming of.

It is recommended that you should protect yourself from sun exposure from as early an age as possible. While younger skin might not have to worry about wrinkles just yet (!), SPF also helps to protect against the potentially harmful consequences of sun exposure.


Times when your skin is fragile is when you should pay extra attention to protecting it from UV rays. Mature skin is particularly sensitive to damage and resulting signs of aging.

Depending on your plans for the day, and your skin's needs, you'll use different skincare with SPF. A day outdoors, when your skin is exposed, requires long-lasting (and repeated every 2 hours) protection with a minimum SPF of 15 that will maintain your skin's radiance and an even skin tone from sunrise to sunset.


The Peony CC Cream is a perfect friend for a radiant skin during a sunny day in the city! If your skin is starting to show signs of aging, or you'd like to prevent them developing, the Divine and Precious day creams combine a sun protection factor with youthful benefits properties.
