The importance of sunscreen

The importance of sunscreen: why you should protect your skin from Sun rays, what are the best products on market and how to use them. Summer is upon us and, like it or not, we are going to expose our skin to the sun, even to its most powerful rays! Let us see why it is important to protect it and how best to do it!

What experts say about the importance of sunscreen

The sun rays responsible of skin aging and potentially harmful are UVA and UVB rays. They cause in time a rapid aging of the skin, with damage to the collagen, which results in deep and diffuse wrinkles, loss of elasticity, dry and rough skin, presence of dilated capillaries on the cheeks, nose and ears, sun spots, desquamation, actinic keratosis, up to skin cancer. Before exposing your skin to the sun it is paramount you are aware of the importance of sunscreen and apply a good photoprotector which, as such, must have the following characteristics: High tolerability index to protect skin from any stress; photostability which makes sunscreens also able to withstand a prolonged exposure; ability to form a uniform layer on the epidermis, to guarantee water and sweat resistance; absence of toxic anti-free radical agents; presence of soothing substances ; good breathability to not cause erythemas by occlusion of the pores.

The importance of sunscreen – How to apply it

When we evaluate the sun protection factor, we must consider that this factor is valid provided we do not skimp on the amount of used product. Recent studies show that the amount of product applied by the consumer only corresponds to the 40% of that expected according to study protocols: this means that the real protection factor corresponds to a value lower than the theoretical one represented on the packaging. Moreover, it would be good to remember to reapply the product every 3 hours.

The importance of sunscreen – The Best Products on market

European leaders of photoprotection as prescribed mainly by dermatologists are Avéne and Isdin. Let’s see what are the key products and innovations with which the dermo cosmetics specialists prepare us to expose the skin to the sun. Avéne, which always has at heart the most sensitive skin, has just launched a line of water resistant suncare for sensitive skin. Available with SPF 20, 30 and 50+, in cream, spray, stick, coloured cream and sun milk for children. Thanks to the patented formula SunSitive, stable and effective over time, this range offers excellent protection against short and long UVB and UVA. For intolerant skins Avéne has designed a new range of solar products without chemical filters, fragrance-free, paraben-free, with high and very high UVB-UVA protection. Spanish brand Isdin instead presents a line of products for sun protection that incorporate cutting-edge technologies in formulations with sunscreens and are based on two essential elements par excellence: water and air. Fusion Water is the first water-based sunscreen. A gel-like matrix that minimizes the fat phase of the product, giving a very high UVA and UVB protection 50+. A technologically advanced Sunscreen, that does not irritate the eyes thanks to Safe-Eye Technology, with anti-aging and antioxidants actives. Air Fusion is instead the first ultra-light spray with dry touch. Formulated by mixing a unique combination of air in gaseous form and the ISDIN Fusion technology, it delivers a light spray with dry touch on the skin.

    io ho sempre usato le creme di Avène fattore 50 perchè le trovo favolose…io appartengo alla categoria di quelle che preferiscono una pelle sana a una pelle bruciata e non protetta. Mi tengo il mio pallore ma almeno cerco di evitare l’invecchiamento della pelle!

    Avene is a great product, however is a bit thick. I do prefer shiseido is lighter and great for oily skin.
    But this is a great review.

    Molto spesso si sottovaluta l’importanza di un’adeguata e corretta protezione solare e il giusto filtro da utilizzare, senza considerare quanto i raggi influiscano sull’invecchiamento della nostra pelle.
    Ottimi consigli! :*

    At least an SPF of 30, apply 15-20 minutes BEFORE sun exposure and re-apply every 2 hours! So important.
