Yes. We recommend using sunscreen whenever you go outdoors, regardless of whether you’re using a Software treatment or not. The sun can affect the rate at which your skin displays signs of ageing, like wrinkles, sagging, and pigmentation, and while we don’t believe there’s anything wrong with these features, we also don’t want our users to undo all the benefits of their treatments by exposing their bare skin to the sun.
The other reason we recommend using sunscreen every day is because the sun is a huge contributing factor to skin cancer. Two in three Australians will be diagnosed with skin cancer by the time they turn 70, and at Software we believe those rates are far too high. We want to do anything we can to help bring them down.
We recommend using an SPF 50+ sunscreen whenever you go outdoors, plus sunglasses, a hat, and clothing where appropriate. We also recommend getting regular skin checks by a GP or dermatologist, to help you stay on top of your skin’s health.
