Product in the spotlight: Sunscreen
Did you know there is a product that you can use to fight ageing, prevent pigmentation, fine lines, wrinkles and skin laxity? SUNSCREEN is the best product on the market to fight signs of ageing caused by UV exposure (and the sun is responsible for most of our external ageing). Sunscreen is also a great way to reduce your risk of skin cancer.
Many people think they don’t like the feel of sunscreen on their skin- they think it’s going to clog their pores and make them feel oily. This doesn’t have to be the case- there are many sunscreens on the market with a light texture that you can’t even feel on your face. Out of all the skincare you will buy to use on your skin, your sunscreen will be the most affordable product and it WILL prevent many of the signs of ageing.
We live in a harsh climate for sun damage. And we have the highest rate of skin cancer in the world. Both of these issues can be prevented by using sunscreen every day. Even on a rainy, cloudy day your skin is absorbing UV rays. Sunlight penetrating through car windows is another time when you may be exposed to high levels of UV. All of this cumulative damage will lead to premature ageing and the risk of skin cancer.
If you get into the habit of applying sunscreen everyday you are not only preventing your risk of skin cancer, but you are fighting the signs of premature ageing. It’s that simple. We have a selection of sunscreens in the clinic that we can offer you. They are light-textured and cosmetically pleasing so that you will be happy to wear them 7 days a week!
