It is officially summer season in many parts of the world. A time when we remove many layers of our clothes and go for something more summery. However, it important you protect your skin during this time because studies have shown that daily wear of sunscreen has anti-aging benefits. Also, the UVA/B from the sun can damage your skin.
According to http://www.patient.info, “exposure to the sun can cause Actinic Keratoses. These skin care issues are caused by damage to the skin by UV light which is part of the sunlight. This skin issue takes many years to develop because the skin is normally good at repairing itself, but over the years, some areas of the skin will be unable to cope with the repeated exposure to the sun and an actinic Keratosis can form”.
To avoid this and other unpalatable skincare problems like hyperpigmentation, you should wear your sunscreen daily and also endeavour to stay away from direct sunlight.
There are lots of sunscreens in the market which we can use to protect our skin, but for the purpose of this post, we will choose one for every skin type.
SENSITIVE SKIN- Some sunscreens and even UV Rays can cause irritation in sensitive skin. Which is why people with this skin type should avoid Chemical UV blockers which are found in many chemical sunscreen. Instead opt for some physical sunscreen that contains zinc.
LA ROCHE-POSAY ANTHELIOS ULTRA LIGHT SUNSCREEN FLUID is a good option because it offers broad-spectrum protection with SPF 60, It is paraben and fragrance free and it protects against UVA/UVB Rays.
OILY SKIN – It is very important to choose a non-comedogenic sunscreen if you have an oily skin because you don’t want the product to clog your pores.
SKINCEUTICALS PHYSICAL FUSION UV DEFENSE SUNSCREEN SPF is a safe bet because it is fragrance free, non comedogenic and gives maximum protection to the skin.
DRY SKIN – People with dry skin need sunscreen with moisturizing humectant and ceramides that help the natural fats in the body to retain water.
MDSolarSciences Mineral Moisture Defense SPF 50 Sunscreen is a broad spectrum sunscreen which contains vitamin c and green tea which are antioxidants that protect the skin from free radicals which can damage the skin. People with combination skin can use this sunscreen as well.
Remember to reapply your sunscreen every two hours and don’t forget to apply your sunscreen 30 minutes before you leave the house.
