We all talk about how important sunscreen is, right? But how does sunscreen even work? Sunscreen works by blocking and absorbing the UV rays through a combination of chemical and physical particles. Some inorganic chemicals including minerals such as titanium dioxide or zinc oxide, act as a physical sunblock. They reflect UV rays just like how white paint reflects light. No matter your gender, background, or age – as long as you are older than 6 months – you need sunscreen!
Sunscreen is one of the most important implements in preventing skin cancer. By applying sunscreen every day you can cut your risk of contracting skin cancers in half! The sun can cause your skin to appear leathery, discolored and lack elasticity. It also creates fine lines and wrinkles and can cause sagging of the skin. Applying sunscreen helps with premature aging of the skin and can also help with maintaining your skin tone. It can help prevent dark spots from sun damage and help maintain smooth skin.
Most face lotions are not designed to include SPF, which means you normally need 2 steps. However, Skin MD Shielding Lotion is a lightweight moisturizer that has SPF15 in it. Designed as a shielding lotion means that one application Skin MD SPF will create a barrier not only from UV but also from pollution and other irritants.
