Defensive Duo: Sunscreen and Antioxidants

Sun Damage Defensive Duo

Every day our skin is exposed to environmental stressors that can cause skin to act and appear older, losing elasticity, and wrinkled.

Sunscreen is a great defense against the harmful effects of the sun. However, did you know that you can also support your skin health with antioxidants?

Learn how this powerful combo can help keep skin looking young and acting youthful!

Sunscreen

Sunscreen helps keep your skin looking younger, longer by protecting it against sun exposure and damaging Ultraviolet B (UVB) or Ultraviolet A (UVA) rays.

To keep skin looking young, even-toned and flawless, we need to provide adequate skin protection with higher UVB/UVA sunscreen to ward off the harmful effects of the sun.

What does SPF mean?

SPF stands for Sun Protection Factor. It indicates a level of protection against UVB radiation. The number following SPF is a measurement of how much longer one can stay under the sun before getting a visible sunburn when compared with the time to burn unprotected skin.

SPF 50 means that the product will provide 50 times your natural protection from UVB rays. SPF gives no promise of protection from UVA rays.

Tips for Choosing a Sunscreen

  • Look for full-spectrum sunscreens that are water-resistant
  • Use a sunscreen with SPF 30 or higher
  • When choosing sunscreen to use on your face, look for oil-free sunscreens to prevent clogged pours and breakouts

Antioxidants

These are chemicals that protect cells by combating free radicals. The most common antioxidants are vitamins A (including beta carotene), C, and E.

What are free radicals?

Free radicals are byproducts of reactions that occur in our bodies in response to stress factors. Some of these factors include air pollution, sunlight, alcohol, and cigarette smoke.

Free radicals can damage skin cells.

A powerful duo

Sunscreen can help protect skin on the outside from harmful UV rays and antioxidants can help combat cell-damaging free radicals on the inside.
