Rain or shine, sun protection is an absolutely essential step in your beauty routine. Research has shown that exposure to UV radiation accelerates skin aging and increases the risk of developing skin cancers such as melanoma. As carefree sun lovers age, their skin develops leather-like texture riddled with sunspots and wrinkles. Those who are smart when it comes to sun exposure will enjoy smooth, beautiful skin for longer.
In the summer months, you should be especially careful about protecting your face and wear sunglasses and a broad brimmed hat if you are venturing outdoors. Additionally, you should protect any area of the skin that will be exposed to the sun by applying sunscreen. The efficacy of sunscreen products is measured by the SPF rating system. We recommend regularly using sunscreens that fall in the high protection category. These products range in value from SPF 30 to SPF 50.
Sunscreens are regulated in the US and Canada as an over the counter medication, while they are treated as a cosmetic product in Europe and Japan. Due to regulatory standards, not all sunscreens are created equal and the formulations and protection capabilities differ from region to region. There are three main components necessary to create a sunscreen, which include UV filters, emollients, and emulsifiers. Some of the most common UV filters used in American products are zinc oxide, titanium dioxide, and octinoxate.
You can make the most of the formulations available in the US by following these 3 useful tips:
- Apply sunscreen 30 minutes prior to sun exposure
- Reapply it every 2 hours
- Apply 2 milligrams of sunscreen per square centimeter of skin
