Sunscreen And Skin Aging
Sunscreen is very important for fighting skin aging. Everyone loves the summer time. We wait all year for the summer season, but what most don’t know is that exposure to the sun’s harmful rays is responsible for about 90% of premature aging? By not protecting your skin from the sun you are causing damage that no wrinkle cream can repair. That is why it is best to protect yourself.
How The Sun Damages Skin
The very best skin care cream to prevent wrinkles from forming is a high quality sunscreen. When used regularly, you could be extending the youthful appearance of your skin. The UVB radiation from the sun is the main reason why wrinkles form and skin ages. This radiation breaks down natural collagen and causes free radicals that prevent damage the skin and prevent it healing through natural exfoliation. The fairer your skin is, the more protection from the sun you need.
Chossing A Sunscreen To Protect Your Skin
When selecting your perfect sunscreen make sure you choose for something that is minimum SPF 15 and contains avobenzon and titanium dioxide. These block radiation and are very good at protecting your skin from the sun’s harmful rays. Some sunscreens cause the skin to whiten in appearance. If you encounter this problem, then a BB Cream is a better option. BB creams come from Asian and have been a hit within the beauty industry. They are a moisturizer and are tinted. They are also very good anti aging products and contain a high SPF level. For those who love makeup but still wish to care for their skin this is a good option.
Many BB Creams are available in our Skincare product section.
Correct Application Of Sun Cream
It is important you apply your sunscreen correctly. This is a common mistake, with many only applying 25% of the amount needed. Sunscreen should be applied to all areas of the skin that will be exposed to the sun. It has been determined that it takes as long as 20-30 minutes for the cream to absorb fully into human skin.
A reapplication of your sunscreen is recommended after 2 hours of sun exposure. It has also been recommended that reapplying sunscreen after 30 minutes of sun exposure is more effective in preventing wrinkles prevention than leaving it for 2 hours. If you take part in any activity that takes you into water or creates sweat then an extra application is also recommended. Always keep your sunscreen at hand, especially if you are a fan of outdoor activities and sports.
