Benefits of applying Sunscreen
Protection from sunburn - Sunscreen protects the skin from exposure to ultraviolet radiation, which could otherwise cause painful burns. Repeated sunburn can cause skin damage and increase the risk of developing skin cancer as well. Sunburn takes a long time to heal and hence, it is always critical to wear sunscreen even on cooler, cloudy days.
Prevents premature aging - Sunscreen can protect your skin from damaging the collagen and connective tissues which often lead to wrinkles.
Minimize sun spots - Suncreen combats sun spots that are often the result of exposure to UV rays. Sunspots occur due to hyperpigmentation and can appear on the face, shoulders, arms, back and so on.
Enhances the health of skin - Essential skin proteins such as keratin, collagen, elastin, are protected by sunscreen. These proteins in turn, keep the skin smooth and healthy.
How to choose Sunscreen for your Skin
Check the SPF (Sun Protection Factor) - SPF is the measure of the amount of UV rays the suncreen can filter out. Using SPF of atleast 15 can protect you from daily UV rays exposure. Higher the SPF, greater the level of protection.
Consider active ingredients - Check for the active ingredients. Those which include titanium dioxide or zinc oxide are usually very good for the skin.
Broad spectrum SPF: Choose sunscreen with a broad spectrum coverage such as SPF between 30 and 50 as it can help protect the skin better from any kind of damage.
Type of sunscreen - Choose sunscreen that feels light and soft on the skin. Neemli Naturals’ Mattifying sunscreen uses a water-resistant formula and is super-lightweight, making you feel refreshed while wearing it.
