Many times we remember to use sunscreen only in summer. But the sun’s rays are present during all four seasons of the year.
It is very important to use sunscreen. I am sure you have heard this more than a thousand times, and not for nothing. And, yes, it is the best way to protect your skin. In fact, it is a basic step in any skincare routine, even in the leanest ones: cleanse, moisturize, and protect.
And have you ever stopped to think about the real importance of protecting your skin?
The heat is always that warning that we need to protect our skin against UVA and UVB rays. Long-term exposure to UVA rays produces free radicals in our body that alter collagen and elastin, resulting in premature aging. The UVB ray causes that annoying redness, and can even cause burns. But the problem is when we are in the cold and cloudy days, when the sun is not so strong and we end up forgetting that we need to take the same care as when it is hot. The effects of solar radiation are the same, and so is the risk of redness, blisters, spots, wrinkles, and even the dreaded skin cancer.
From ultraviolet radiation, which is the sun; from infrared, which is the heat produced by this radiation; from pollution, and also in case of low relative humidity. You also need to protect your skin from visible light, which is the light emitted by lamps and computer or cell phone screens.
The best way to protect your skin is to use sunscreen. It is the product that has the most scientific evidence for preventing aging. Some filters already have an association of moisturizers and antioxidants
The combination of sunscreen with vitamin C works wonders! This is because vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant and helps to make your skin tone more uniform and your skin more illuminated. In our Elaine Esthetics line we have Sunscreen available, we have an amazing Vitamin C our darling Vitamin C + Hyaluronic Acid Serum. And not forgetting Amla Vitamin C, a Vitamin C supplement that will boost your health.
Come rain or shine, don’t forget to wear your sunscreen!
