Sun Protection, Skincare Benefits

Fact: There's no point using active skincare like exfoliants and serums if you're not protecting your skin by wearing SPF every day?

That's why we made Dawn to Dusk SPF 50+ Serum, a sunscreen made for skincare lovers that:

 

  • Is lightweight, fast-absorbing serum sunscreen with a sheer, glowy finish
  • Contains broad-spectrum UVA/UVB filters to protect the skin from the sun’s damaging rays and environmentally induced, extrinsic ageing
  • Leaves skin looking dewy and luminous under makeup
  • Layers well with other products (i.e. no pilling!)
  • Is packed with skincare ingredients including skin barrier-saviour Niacinamide, antioxidant-rich Vitamin E and soothing Aloe Vera

SPF 101: Why It Matters

Aside from the very real skin cancer risks, did you know around 80% of all signs of ageing can be attributed to unprotected UV exposure?

Sunscreens work by absorbing and scattering harmful emissions from the sun, including:

- UVA light (the rays that 'age' the skin)

- UVB light (the rays that 'burn' the skin)

 

Wearing a broad-spectrum, high-protection SPF daily (and reapplying every 2 hours) helps to protect against sunburn, skin cancers, premature skin ageing like fine lines and wrinkles, uneven skin tone and hyperpigmentation.

Good To Know
 
Where does it go in my routine?
  • After: Serums, moisturiser and/or face oil as the last step of your morning skincare routine
  • Before: Makeup
How much do I need?

3-4 full pipettes or 2 finger lengths of product. More is more when it comes to SPF. Cancer Council recommends one teaspoon or 5ml to adequately protect the face and neck, including ears.
 

How often should I use it?

Daily, reapplying every 2 hours or when going out in the sun.
 

Pro tips
  • Apply sunscreen in layers or by sectioning the face into different quadrants (forehead, cheeks, nose etc.) to make sure you're using enough SPF
  • Reapply over makeup using a beauty blender by gently patting product into the skin
  • Never mix serums, moisturisers or makeup products like highlighter or bronzer with your sunscreen, as this will dilute the SPF protection
  • Allow sunscreen to fully dry down before applying makeup to avoid pilling
  • Apply SPF to the backs of hands before driving to prevent UV damage
  • Don't forget, SPF is just one part of sun protection! Wear a hat, sunnies and protective clothing, and seek shade where possible

    Beautiful Sun protection

    This serum is lovely , should nks in well and makes my skin feel beautiful. I wear it under makeup. My only worry is , is it giving me all day protection without reapplication? It’s called Dawn to Dusk so you would hope so!!

    Excellent

    I have used Alpha H products before having bought from QVC and have always been really pleased with them. This was a new product to me so I was keen to try and I have not been disappointed.

    Feels lovely on the skin, sinks in beautifully and makes my face feel really soft and hydrated, the fact it also contains an SPF makes it perfect. Highly recommend.

    Good addition to the SPF range

    This SPF 50 is a great improvement on the creams from the range. It applies well, feels less greasy and smells nice. However, I still find my skin a bit ‘sticky’ for a while after application, which makes me slightly anxious of marking my clothing. Over all, I would still recommend this serum over the cream.
