Dr Susan Mayou was featured on Byrdie, talking about the importance of incorporating sunscreen into our everyday skincare routine (even in Britain and even when the sun isn't shining!!)
As a leading authority on dermatology and skin cancer detection and treatment, Dr Mayou has unrivalled experience within the field and is passionate about educating consumers to be sun smart.
Sunscreen not only helps prevent skin cancer but it also helps reduce the effects of ageing. "Sunscreen is the best and cheapest anti-ageing product you can use," says Dr Mayou. "It has been clinically proven to slow down the effects of ageing of the skin."
In the article, Dr Mayou helps to decode the labelling on sunscreen; which can be very confusing for consumers. From SPF, and star ratings through to PA+ and PA++ meanings and the role of UVA and UVB, the codes are translated and advice is given on what to look for, the best products to use, effective application and paying attention to your skin.
