Although it seems obvious: everyone should wear sunscreen every day! No matter your skin type, age, gender, or ethnicity, it is essential to protect skin from the damage of ultraviolet rays. UVA and UVB rays can penetrate thick cloud cover or glass and cause damage.
With the golden glow of a tan, either acquired naturally or in a tanning bed, comes damage that prematurely ages your skin. Wrinkles, sagging, and age spots are the most common signs of sun damage. A 2013 study in Australia found that subjects who applied sunscreen every day had noticeably smoother and more resilient skin.
A base coat of sunscreen can work as a smoothing primer before makeup application, and also keep your skin visibly healthier in the present moment. It can also work with your makeup to help create a flawless look. A fan favorite at SPMA is Neova’s Silc Sheer and and ZO skin health sunscreens. Smart sunscreen with DNA repair enzymes and antioxidants protects skin against aging and burning while visibly correcting damage with a perfecting natural tint. http://www.neova.com
Another of SPMA favorites is ZO Triple-Spectrum Light Defense. Powerful, weightless sunscreens for every skin tone, type and lifestyle. Now in mineral Sheer Fluid and smoothing Gel textures. ZO Triple-Spectrum Protection® technologies help maintain your skin health by defending against UVA + UVB rays, Infared-A rays and HEV blue light, as well as pollution. https://zoskinhealth.com/
While it is essential to prevent damage for the sake of your future skin, the health of your skin at the present moment is also of utmost importance. Sunburns cause redness, itchiness, pain, irritability, and peeling, all of which can interfere with your ability to pull off a flawless look.
More Value from Treatments
Skin health routines that involve facials, exfoliation, lasers, or other treatments are lovely and beneficial ways to maintain the health of your skin. Still, these treatments are fighting an uphill battle if you continue to damage your skin by sun exposure.
