Sunscreen does much more than simply protect our skin from sun burn. Today's sunscreen products protect skin from the damaging ultraviolet rays that cause premature aging of the skin.

 

Sun damage appears as brown spots or blotches, redness and visible tiny blood vessels, wrinkles, and a duller skin tone. Sun block is also very important for reducing risks of skin cancer.

 

Sunscreen should be the cornerstone of cosmetic skin care for everyone. Most importantly, look for a sun block that offers UVA and UVB protection.

 

Look for a new labeling system from the FDA that adds a four star rating on the degree of UVA protection.

 

Other basics to remember:

  • Reapply sunscreen after about 2 hours, even if your sun block is water-resistant or high SPF
  • Make sure to apply a thick layer of sun screen - too little will reduce the protection a lot
  • Finally, make sure to use fresh sun screen. Discard your supply from last summer, especially if it is expired, or was frozen during the winter.

Using sunscreen will help you protect and maintain your youthful skin appearance. It is also important as part of a skin care maintenance plan after cosmetic IPL (intense pulsed light), laser and surgical procedures. Those using skin rejuvenation topicals (such as retinoids, antioxidants, and hydroxyacids) should also be using sunscreen on a daily basis.
