Ultimate Guide to Sunscreen and How, When and Which Should I Use
Some of us have been recently reached with this picture of a 92 years old woman that came from an article that shows a visible difference of skin quality.
The picture shows the cheeks and neck from one side of her face, and the document explains that she used UV-protective sunscreen for at least 40 years, but only on her face.
According to the article this difference was checked on clinic tests showing “sun exposure damage”.
Whenever we see this picture it seems to show just beautiful skin, although it’s also healthy and cancer prevents skin. Skin cancers definitely need primary prevention, mainly focusing on UV-protection.
Several campaigns, investigations and studies have shown that this single attitude of skincaring with UV sunscreen is conducted with the noble goal of reducing morbidity, mortality and socio-economic burden of cutaneous malignancies. (POSCH, C. 2021)
Sunscreen can also help to protect skin from air pollution, which is another factor that can cause acne vulgaris.
Besides cleansing the skin properly it’s also very important to keep using sunscreen throughout the day. (LAOPANUPONG, T; JIN, Y. C.. 2021).
How much sunscreen should I use?
The level 4 qualified facialist and aesthetician Andy Millward has recently shown the right amount of sunscreen that it’s needed to actually work as we bring above:
When should I use it?
Everyday, even when you’re at home, because cell phones, computers, tablets and even house lighting can emit radiation.
Which sunscreen to choose?
Each skin can need a certain type of product, but in general it’s recommended to use at least SPF 30, giving preference to something with high spectrum (UVA/UVB/Infrared) and also waterproof, re-applying from 2 to 2 hours.
