“Health is the Greatest Possession”

At Skin Care for Health, The Health of Your Skin is a Priority

By Shahla Dieroff, Esthetician & Therapeutic Touch RP

shahlaPreventing wrinkles with sunscreen

Sunshine is so good for us, it makes us feel wonderfully happy, energised and motivated. And what about all that wonderful Vitamin D helping us to have healthy bones? All of this is true, but we must have respect for the sun's intensity.

Good protection for our bodies from its harsh rays, not only in the summer but all year round, is a wise choice. Also a healthy choice for the prevention of skin cancer.

Exposure to ultraviolet light (UVA or UVB), from sunlight accounts for 90% of the symptoms of premature skin aging including wrinkles. The most important care product available to prevent wrinkles is sunscreen and most people do not use it correctly.

Applying sunscreen properly

Most people apply only 25%-50% of the recommended amount. Not enough! Initially, sunscreen should be applied liberally enough to all sun exposed areas so that it forms a film. It takes 20-30 minutes for sunscreen to be absorbed by the skin, so apply at least half an hour before going out into the sunshine.

When applying sunscreen to the face make sure that the face is clean of makeup and that the sunscreen is specifically made for the protection of the face with SPF (sun protection factor) no less than 30.

Here are some Important facts to consider with sunscreen use

There are three types of UV rays. UVA, UVB, UVC. These are divided into categories based on the wavelength.

UVC radiation is absorbed by the atmosphere and does not cause skin damage. UVB radiation affects the outer layer of the skin (the epidermis) and is the primary cause of sunburn. UVA radiation penetrates deeper into the skin and works on the damage more efficiently. It is more constant then UVB. It also is not filtered by glass.

Both UVB & UVA radiation cause wrinkles by breaking down collagen, creating free radicals, and inhibiting the skin's natural repair mechanism.
