Sunscreen and Aging:

Here’s why these are and item

You know when you joke about things but deep down you’re being serious and just hoping for someone to join you on your crazy ideas? Well, that’s me talking about wanting to create a sunscreen cult. I’m the sunscreen lady. I’m allergic to cats so cat lady wasn’t and option for me, so sunscreen it is. Since I learned how fundamental it was to wear it every single day of my life in order to have good skin I never went back. It’s a long term relationship and I know it will last forever.

But there’s still some of my friends who think I’m over reacting when I say you must re-apply at least twice a day and wear it even when it's snowing. But I’m not. Sunscreen is an everyday thing, just as brushing your teeth. If you want your skin to look young, healthy and bright sunscreen is your best friend for the ride. I often get asked about best products to fight against wrinkles, fine lines and dark spots. My answer is usually a question: Do you wear sunscreen? Most of the times the answer is NO or “sometimes”, and there's where the problem is. You can use the most expensive, best formulas out there to fight these skin symptoms, but nothing will work if you don’t wear sunscreen everyday. Sunscreen is the best anti-aging you can find, but I understand people can be against it especially because western ones can feel sticky, thick or leave a white cast.

I was one of those, I must admit. Sunscreen wasn't a must in my life until around 2014. Before that I went for the typical ones you find in drugstores, but it wasn’t until I found out about eastern ones that I finally convinced myself it was possible to wear sunscreen and actually enjoy it.

Here's the deal in a few, simple words: UVA and UVB rays were born ready to kill collagen and elastin from your skin. Once this happens wrinkles, sunspots, saggy skin and fine lines start taking over. Sounds awful, right? That's why sunscreen is a 365-days-a-year commitment.

 

 

Sun protection forms the foundation of every anti-aging skin-care plan. The sun’s rays make our skin age more quickly. There is so much evidence that the sun prematurely ages our skin that there is actually a word to describe this effect. This word is “photoaging.” Wrinkle creams, eye serums, and other anti-aging skin care products can help diminish signs of aging however, nothing, and I’ll repeat, NOTHING will work if you don’t wear a layer of sunscreen on top of those, why yes, sunscreen is the best anti-wrinkle, anti-dark spot, anti-sagging product you can use, and you should be using it every day, even if the sun isn’t shining.

 

 

A favorite of ours? The Daylight Protection Sunscreen, a lightweight fluid-like sunscreen that offers major protection with broad-spectrum SPF 50 PA +++. It offers light but nourishing hydration from rose and raspberry extracts, so those with dry skin can get an extra boost of hydration after layering over moisturizer and normal to oily skin can use this as a moisturizer with sun protection. It protects all day and wears well under makeup, leaving zero white cast or greasy feeling on your skin.

Here’s the secret to antioxidant up your skincare routine!

Antioxidants help fight the cell damages that naturally occur from oxidation, which eventually turn into free radicals. Free radicals eventually start a chain reaction of damages to more cells which affect both our body and skin health. Although you can find anti-oxidants in a variety of different natural ingredients like fruits and vegetables, some specific fruits and vegetables further flaunt higher levels and powerful antioxidant content.

Let’s face it. Staying in for a long period of time sounds easy at the beginning but can be challenging. During quarantine we already cleaned our full apartment twice, re-organized the kitchen, the closet and tried all of those recipes we always wanted to. But now it’s time to focus on ourselves and bless our skin with a little - well deserved - me time.

Transitional Weather Scaries? Add some H2 to your routine ASAP!

I’ve said it before: my skin is not only combo but also very sensitive, and rosacea + acne prone… yeah, yeah, someone decided to add a little bit of everything during the DNA distribution. For many years I just catalogued my skin is oily, because I used to think that was my one and only skin concern and that every other problem was a consequence of the oiliness. Oh, how wrong I was.
