What exactly is an SPF?

Living in Australia means most of us grow up in the sun and from an early age we’re educated on how to be sun safe. From the good old Slip, Slop, Slap message right through to the consequences of too much sun exposure and the signs of sun damage to look out for – we’d consider ourselves an educated bunch.

But when it comes to sunscreen and an SPF rating, how educated are we really? In many cases, we look at the numbers and automatically assume that ‘bigger is better,’ but it’s a little more complex than that.

Sensitivity explained:

Sensitivity in skin doesn't always present as obviously red, inflamed or irritated skin.

When sensitive skin is balanced, the outer layer of our skin (called the lipid barrier) is intact, and inflammation and irritation should all be under control. If it becomes compromised that's when we notice changes - like redness, tight skin, shiny skin, excess oil or breakouts.

These changes are a consequence of the sensitivity. For example, your skin may have been stripped of its natural protective oils which then in turn causes it to produce more oil and lead to breakouts.

By treating the sensitivity first and working to get the skin balanced your skin function improves and a lot of these other signs such as breakouts start to reduce in appearance as well.
