Neutrogena Range Of Sun Protection Products:
We need both UVA (causes skin darkening and skin aging) and UVB (causes sunburn) protection from the sun, all year round. The Sun Protection Factor is the degree of protection only agaisnt UVB induced sunbruns. Hence it is advisable to use a broad spectrum sunscreen which has both UVA and UVB protection.
The stability of the sunscreen is also very important. The sun protection technology complex Heliplex ™ delivers very high, very broad and photo-stable UV Protection. A proper and effective use of sunscreens not only preserves the youthful appearance of skin but also protects against many photodermatoses.
Your skin is your shield against the environment:
Sunlight has a profound effect on the skin causing premature skin aging, skin darkening, and a host of skin changes. Broad spectrum sun protection is the best way to stave off sun damage and forms as essential part of any skin care regimen. Sunscreens not only protect against the harmful ultraviolet radiation of the sun, but also prevent the skin damaging signs like unwanted pigmentation, age spots, wrinkles and uneven texture and tone.
What Are UV Rays?
UV rays or ultra violet radiation are harmful rays, emitted by the sun. They are primarily of two types:
– UV A rays penetrate deep into the skin and are referred to as “aging rays”, as they damage the underlying collagen, making the skin appear scaly, dry and wrinkled.
– UV B rays are the most damaging since they are primarily responsible for sun burn and are often referred to as ‘burning” rays.
Sunscreen is any substance or material that protects the skin from UV radiation. They work by absorbing, reflecting or scattering the sun’s rays on the skin. Sunscreen should be used daily by all individuals, including men and children, all through the year irrespective of the season, in conjunction with other sun-safety steps for optimal sun protection.
How Much Sunscreen Should You Use?
When going out into the sun to ensure that you get the full SPF of a sunscreen, a good palm full or about 2 or 3 tbsp per application is necessary to adequately cover your whole body and face.
How Often Should You Use?
Sunscreens should be applied liberally and evenly so as not to miss any areas of sun-exposed skin about half an hour before sun exposure for absorption. Reapply after swimming, towel drying or extended sun exposure. Don’t reserve the use of sunscreen only for sunny days. Even on a rainy or cloudy day, up to 80% of the sun’s damaging ultraviolet rays can pass through the clouds.
What Does The SPF Number Mean?
SPF or Sun Protection Factor is a measure of a sunscreen’s ability to prevent UVB from damaging the skin. It measures only the UVB rays and not UVA rays and indicates the amount of time a person can be exposed to sunlight without getting sunburnt.
