“Exposure to UVA and UVB rays from sunlight accounts for 90 percent of premature skin aging symptoms.” Heather Brannon, MD. Please wear your hat, sunglasses and use SPF 30 that is labeled “broad-spectrum”. UVA rays penetrate deep into the dermis causing damage to the cells. UVB rays only hit the surface causing sun burn. Your sunscreen must say broad-spectrum to protect you from both UVA and UVB rays!
If you’re having a hard time finding a sunscreen that won’t clog your pores and won’t sting your eyes, I highly recommend HydroPeptide Solar defense (tinted moisturiser with 30 SPF, see HydroPeptide blog). If you’d like more coverage, Lycogel breathable silica with 30 SPF (see Lycogel blog) won’t block the pores or sting the eyes and is also water proof, great for working out, swimming, surfing, etc
Hope you enjoyed today’s tip to keep your skin fit!
