Cosmeceuticals – Sunscreen
Sunbathing provides vitamin D to your skin and gives it a beautiful chocolate tone, but exposure to UV rays can be harmful to your health. Ultraviolet is the main enemy of skin health. Long exposure to the sun without sunscreen can cause the formation of pigment spots and wrinkles. The elasticity of the skin can be significantly reduced, it will gradually lose moisture and become overdried. According to experts, ultraviolet rays increase the risk of skin cancer.
Sun Protection: How does sunscreen work?
There are several types of rays that are dangerous for the skin:
— UVB. This type of radiation is responsible for the production of melanin and affects tanning, causing burns and redness;
— UVA. This type of radiation can penetrate into the deeper layers of the skin. It has a negative effect on the skin. This type of radiation triggers the process of photoaging (wrinkles, age spots), and photodermatitis.
To protect the skin from UVB radiation, we recommend using special sunscreens with SPF filters.
SPF (Sun protection factor) is a measure of how well a sunscreen will protect skin from UVB rays. There are several levels of protection:
— Sunscreen with SPF below 15. It is a low level of protection, and can be used by owners of dark skin;
— Sunscreen with SPF from 15 to 20. This is the medium level of protection. These products are perfect for dark skin that is not prone to sunburn. However, this protection will not be enough for being under the active sun in the tropics, mountains, desert, or on the beach;
— Sunscreen with SPF from 30 to 50. It is a high level of protection, and it is perfect for light skin types. We recommend Toskani Sun Protection Cream (50 ml). This product has a cream-gel structure that is easily absorbed. It forms an invisible barrier to ultraviolet radiation. This cream is hypoallergenic, is suitable for sensitive and prone to rashes skin, and is safe for children.
Cosmetic sunscreens, even with a high level of protection, cannot completely prevent the effects of ultraviolet radiation. To choose the right sunscreen, you need to take into account skin type, climate, and age.
To fully protect yourself from two types of radiation, experts recommend the use of broad-spectrum sunscreens. These products may contain the PPD, PA, UVA, or “broad spectrum” label in addition to the SPF label.
Sun Protection: How to Apply Sunscreen Correctly
To avoid problems such as skin pigmentation, wrinkles, burns, and more serious skin conditions, you need to use sunscreen regularly and correctly.
Sunscreen should be applied every time you want to go out in the sun for more than 10 minutes. The product can be in the form of a fluid, lotion, cream, gel, or oil. Sunscreen should be applied approximately 20 minutes before your anticipated sun exposure, so the protective filters will have time to activate. It is important to reapply sunscreen every few hours, as UV radiation destroys protective filters and they can be washed off when swimming. When using sunscreen, pay special attention to areas with thin skin: ears, forehead, nose, and lips. In cloudy or cold weather, ultraviolet radiation also affects your skin. If you want to keep your skin healthy and young for as long as possible, always use products with SPF protection, such as Purles. 72 Triple Action Cream SPF 50+. It evens skin tone, moisturizes the skin, protects against the negative effects of UV rays, and prevents the appearance of pigment spots.
How to use sunscreen with other skincare products and make-up?
You can apply sunscreen after the face cream is completely absorbed. Give your sunscreen 10 minutes to sink into your skin before applying your makeup.
