WHY IS SUNSCREEN IMPORTANT?
Sun damage is the #1 cause of the skin’s premature ageing. UVA & UVB (Ultraviolet rays) produce up to 90% of premature “skin ageing” symptoms. These UV rays penetrate the skin layers, damages them, and cause wrinkles, freckles, pigmentation, and discoloration. UVB rays are the cause of sunburns and affect the skin’s outer layers. UVA rays penetrate deep into the skin layers & its intensity remains unchanged even at low-level exposures. To minimise the damage, sunscreen is a must-have product for both men & women of all ages.
SEARCHING FOR THE BEST SUNSCREEN
- The Sun emits different UV rays, each causing different skin issues. To ensure proper protection, search for a broad-spectrum SPF – often represented with a PA+++.
2. Not sure if SPF 30 is enough? The SPF number indicates how protected your skin is from the Sun. For example, if it took 15 minutes for your skin to burn without SPF, SPF 30 would protect your skin for 450 minutes (30 multiplied by 15 minutes). But this does not mean you should reach for the highest SPF available! SPF 30 blocks 97% of the Sun’s burning rays (UVB) while SPF 100 utilises more chemicals to only block 99%.
Clinically proven to be a more effective alternative to the commonly found Titanium Dioxide, Cerium Oxide works to defend the skin from harmful blue light, UVA and UVB rays. Its mineral nature also allows it to be a cleaner and skin-friendlier alternative to chemical sunscreens. Additionally, its potent antioxidant properties prevent oxidative stress, accelerates wound healing and minimise cellular inflammation to tackle photoageing at the root.
A break-through ingredient in the realm of skincare, Platinum lends its antioxidant and anti-ageing capabilities to shield skin from daily damage. But the potential of this luxury ingredient extends beyond sheer protection. Its complex nature allows it to enhance the stability of peptides in the skin, remove cellular toxins, boost the penetration of actives, and form an electrical balance on the skin surface for heightened protection against oxidative damage.
A rich source of Vitamin C – an ingredient widely known for its antioxidant properties- Citrus Aurantium Dulcis (Orange) Peel Oil defends the skin against daily free-radical damage.
