In this day and age everyone now knows the importance of wearing sunscreen in the summer. What most people don't realise is, that even in the winter or on a cloudy day, your skin is still exposed to harmful UVA & UVB rays! Incidental sun exposure-the kind experienced on a daily commute- has a cumulative effect that results in photo ageing (pigmentation, fine lines and sagging skin). People who enjoy snow sports such as skiing or snowboarding are even more exposed, as UV light reflects off of snow and ice, and exposure is far greater at higher elevations eg. on the top of a mountain.
Here at The Ivy we believe that it is essential to protect yourself from UVA & UVB rays all year round. The addition of a dedicated broad spectrum (which means UVA & UVB protection) SPF of 30 or higher, into your daily skincare regimen is a must no matter what the temperature or weather conditions outside.
So SPF in the winter too!! Your skin will thank you!!
We stock high performance broad spectrum SPF from amazing cosmeceutical product ranges such as #skinceuticals and #dermaquest

Tonight's skincare routine, left to right.
1) Remove makeup with @caudalie makeup removing cleaning oil
2) Wash with @cetaphilus
3) Apply serum. Love @skinceuticals. This one is awesome or Phloretin CF
4) Moisturize with @lamer. 100% worth the money
5) Apply eye cream. My fave is from @peterthomasrothofficial, but I'm out, so using SkinCeuticals' eye balm. Nice, but I like eye cream a little thicker
