One skin care product that works immediately upon application and stays on for a long time protecting your skin is the sunscreen. But people tend to skip using this skin care product during winters. Just applying a moisturizer and cold cream is not enough! You’ll need sunscreen too.
UV Rays are Independent of Cold or Hot Weather
Many of you wear sunscreen only during the summer. The reality is you need to wear it every day regardless of the weather. Ultraviolet rays that can cause skin cancer are always present. Even though the sun is not as harsh during the winter, it shouldn’t keep you from wearing sunscreen.
Let’s get into the technicalities of the harmful UV rays. The sun emits two types of UV rays - the UVA rays and the UVB rays. During winters, the UVB rays are weak. But, the UVA rays present can affect your skin and cause wrinkles and fine lines.
Sunscreen with a strong SPF is recommended for protecting your skin against the harmful UV rays throughout the year. It not only prevents tanning in summer but also prevents your skin from forming wrinkles, fine lines, and blemishes.
Let’s have a look at a few things you need to keep in mind when buying sunscreen.
- Broad Spectrum - This is a must-have in every sunscreen. It means that the product will protect you from both UVA and UVB rays.
- Water Resistant - This ensures that the sunscreen will protect your skin from harmful rays even in the water for a specific amount of time.
- Active Ingredients - There are two types of sunscreens - physical and chemical sunscreens. Physical sunscreens contain titanium oxide and zinc oxide. These create a physical barrier on your skin that reflects the UV rays. On the other hand, chemical sunscreens contain chemicals that protect the skin by absorbing the UV rays. Both the sunscreens are equally effective.
- Sun Protection Factor (SPF) - This is a numerical factor that provides information on the level of protection provided by the sunscreen. For everyday wear, a minimum of SPF 15 or 30 is recommended.
It’s important to pick products that suit your skin type and take care of your skin problems.
