Working indoors and not wearing SPF?

Working indoors and not wearing SPF? Working indoors and not wearing SPF?

It may sound like a clever marketing ploy to sell more sunscreen, but I can promise you it’s not. We just want your skin to be as awesome as you are. And that means wearing SPF indoors, too.

Allow us to explain.

There are two main types of UV rays; ultraviolet A (UVA) which cause all those fun signs of premature ageing like wrinkles, sunspots, fine lines and freckles  and ultraviolet b (UVB) which cause those nasty sunburns and damage the DNA in skin cells.

Thankfully, most windows block UVB rays, which is why you won't get sunburnt indoors. They won’t, however, block UVA rays…..so. Awks.

There is another kind of light we need to be aware of with all this WFH and hanging out indoors. Blue light! It’s a part of the visible light spectrum and is the light all our screens emit which some studies have shown can cause free radical damage. The solution? Supreme, Clean and Queen have filters and antioxidants which protect for this too! They’re considerate like that.

And finally, a small...special number of you might wonder, what if I stay indoors ALL DAY in a dark room with no screens and no source of natural light?! Then do I still have to wear sunscreen?!!

Well… no I suppose not (P.S. are you okay? Here if you need!) But look, if you’ve already got an Ultra Violette skinscreen, might as well put it on. SPF application is the kind of habit we should be getting into right now. All our formulas have skin sweetening ingredients that do things like; provide antioxidant benefits, keep you hydrated, and improve tone and texture. Fun huh?
