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

    How to apply?

    The instruction doesn’t say if it is applied before facial cream like a serum or after all the daily steps at the end?

    Smooth as butter

    I really like this SPF as it goes on so smoothly and leaves my skin feeling soft and dewy. There's no white residue left over and it sinks in quickly. I will be re-ordering

    Happy Customer

    Nice light SPF50+ serum. Non sticky and a beautiful texture. Easy to apply after skincare and prior to makeup if wearing. I have sensitive skin and find this non irritating. Have had no reaction to this serum.

    Finally!!

    I love this serum sunscreen. It absorbs fast and really well into my skin. Sits great under makeup and isn’t greasy.

    I have tried all of the other sunscreens from alga h and I wanted to love all of them, but they just sit on my face and they makes my face sweat.

    This is the Holy grail of sunscreens! Please make one in a bigger bottle for body use!
