5 WAYS SPF CAN HELP YOUR SKIN

Anti-aging properties

SPF has considerable benefits for your skin, notably protecting it from visible signs of aging, including wrinkles, loss of firmness, dullness and uneven pigmentation caused by UV rays. Using a product with added SPF, when applied regularly, has been proven to help to reduce these visible signs of aging by thickening and strengthening the epidermis. With the Divine Cream SPF 20, the skin feels protected against   damage cause by UV rays, like surrounded by a protective bubble, enriched with Corsica's natural treasures.
