The benefits of using sunscreen daily

UV rays affect the skin in different ways. For example, age spots appear on the skin, and its texture can change. There are two types of solar radiation: UVA and UVB. UVA rays are the longest and for this reason, they penetrate deeper into the layers of the skin, affect the subcutaneous tissue, thus reducing its elasticity. This means that UVA radiation contributes to premature aging of the skin and the appearance of wrinkles. Since UVA rays can also penetrate through window panes, sunscreen should be used even on cloudy days or when you are at home.

UVB rays are shorter and affect the upper layer of the skin. More intense UVB radiation causes sunburn, reddening of the skin and promotes the development of skin cancer. The application of sun protection cream is extremely important to maintain the protective functions of the skin, to prevent the development of skin cancer and photoaging (pigmentation spots, wrinkles, laxity of the skin).

Even if tanning occurs without burning, the lesions still appear on the skin. I mean, there is no such thing as a healthy tan. Unfortunately, a dark complexion is already a sign that the skin has been damaged by UV rays.

How does sunscreen work?

Sunscreens contain sunscreen ingredients that reduce the amount of ultraviolet radiation (UVA, UVB) reaching the skin. Products are divided into organic and inorganic. Organic sunscreens use chemicals that basically convert the sun's radiation from the skin into heat and thus protect it from UV radiation. Various chemical sunscreens use up to 30 ingredients. Therefore, people with sensitive skin should ensure that none of these ingredients cause skin irritation.

The effect of inorganic sunscreens, in terms of protection against UVB radiation, is similar to chemical ones. Because they leave a thin white layer on the skin, mineral sunscreens act as a barrier that reflects the sun's rays and thus protects the skin from UVA radiation, which causes photoaging. Both chemical and mineral ones are effective and protect the skin from the sun. You just need to find a cream that suits your preferences and skin type.

Mineral sunscreen cream

Mineral sunscreen cream contains substances that create a film on the upper stratum corneum of the skin, which scatters, absorbs and reflects ultraviolet rays. Mineral sunscreens reflect the full spectrum of skin-damaging UV rays. Zinc oxide is one of the safest active ingredients in sun protection today. It has antiseptic properties and helps fight small skin inflammations. It can be used by people with very sensitive skin, pregnant women and babies. Creams based on zinc oxide and titanium dioxide are environmentally friendly. Mineral sunscreens work immediately after application and you don't have to wait 20-30 minutes for them to be absorbed to expose yourself to the sun.

Sunscreen even when it's cloudy outside

For example, Biounique face and body sun protection cream can protect you against UVB and UVA rays. Contains rose water, carrot oil, cocoa butter, hyaluronic acid and vitamins for extra protection. More than just a beauty protector for your skin. The ultra-light texture provides perfect spread for flawless coverage and strong broad-spectrum UVA and UVB protection. It allows you to add the desired level of SPF to your favorite skin care product. It provides the perfect balance to the skin and its resistance to the effects of the urban lifestyle, tones, energizes, provides protection against free radicals. You should use sunscreen even when it's cloudy outside.

Longer wavelength UVA rays cause premature aging of the skin, and 75% of these rays even penetrate through window panes. Therefore, when taking care of your skin, it is important to use effective sunscreen even if you are not going to leave the house. The more windows in a room, the more likely you are to be exposed to UVA radiation.

What is the purpose of sunscreen

The purpose of sunscreen is to protect the skin from UV radiation. Therefore, sunscreen should be used regularly every day. And if you have many birthmarks and skin problems, you need to be especially careful about solar radiation. In addition, sunscreen helps prevent redness of the facial skin, dilation of veins and the appearance of acne. Apart from acne, exposure to the sun can cause many other skin problems that can be avoided by using sunscreen.

It is necessary to use sunscreen every day, regardless of the time of year, the weather or the length of your stay outside. It is recommended to sunbathe in a tanning bed with sunscreen to prevent wrinkles and skin cancer. Sunscreen for tattoos is necessary because of the possible destruction of the chemical structure of the pigments by ultraviolet rays and discoloration of the design.
