Many myths about not needing to apply sunscreen are commonplace during the more colder months. It’s time to dispel the myths regarding the effects of sunscreen on your skin in winter seasons. Routine changes to your skincare routine are not uncommon and applying sunscreen as the final step in securing your routine has not been debated. If you’re still reluctant to put an extra layer of sunscreen this is the reason why you must have sunblock all year long.
Did you have any idea? SPF refers to the sun’s protection factor that calculates precisely the amount of UV radiation (UVA and UVB radiation) is needed by the sun to cause aging and burns on the skin. While UVA Rays are at the root of the formation of signs of aging, UVB rays cause burns skin rashes, burns, and even tanning. Additionally, SPF can also protect your skin from sun spots and skin cancer, as well as photoaging, redness, and inflammation.
Which sunblock is best to me in the winter?
Experts recommend that at least SPF 30 is sufficient to protect you against 97% of UVB radiations that strike your body and face. The + symbol on your sunscreen signifies how well it is protecting your skin. For instance PA + indicates that your sunscreen provides some protection from UVA radiation. PA ++ means that your sunscreen is able to provide moderate protection. The PA+++ sunblock gives the most protection of all three. Sun Daze from BiE (Beauty in Everything) is India’s only all-natural base sunscreen that has SPF 35 PA++, which glides smoothly on skin and is dry without casting.
Why is it important to apply sunscreen in the winter months?
Outdoor activities and sports in winter
The ozone layer is thinnest during winter, allowing the sun’s radiation to penetrate the atmosphere much more quickly. Additionally, outdoor exercise and white snowy surface reflect light, increasing the sun’s rays and causing the skin’s reactions to burn and irritation more likely.
Sunscreen and the skin’s reaction cold temperatures
A day on the beach is a sweaty affair which requires a new application of sunscreen every 2 to 3 hours. Cold, cold air blows the sunscreen out, which can erode it faster than summertime temperatures.
In winter, the harsh air causes your skin’s protective barrier to become weaker, which results in more dry and itchy skin. If the skin begins to become sensitive in this way, it’s recommended to apply an additional layer of skin care to shield your skin from extreme weather. Physical sunscreens contain the filters, such as titanium dioxide or zinc oxide are able to reflect the sun’s radiation back to the atmosphere before they reach the layers beneath your skin. In contrast to a chemical sunscreen, UV radiation does not penetrate your skin, thus avoiding the chance of causing irritation and further sensitivity to the skin.
Staying indoors during winter
The effects of UVB radiations could be minimal in the indoor environment, but greater than fifty% of UVA Rays are able to penetrate glass and cause getting older even when you’re indoors. Also, blue light doesn’t disperse from your eyes. Unintentional exposure to the blue-colored light from cell phones tablets, laptops, and laptops can cause damage to retinal cells of our bodies, which can compromise our vision. The long-term absorption of blue light leads to muscle degeneration, early signs of ageing skin, as well as wrinkles and fine lines. Its Guardian Shield Serum from BiE is a potent combination of squalene and vitamin complex that helps protect skin from blue light while also tackling hyperpigmentation and discolouration to ensure healthy skin.
Sunscreens are anti-aging.
Dry skin can cause a severe itch that requires you to rub it frequently to stop it. The constant tugging on your skin can cause wrinkles early on Crow’s feet, wrinkles and wrinkles. Sunblock’s powerful anti-aging properties reduce wrinkles while promoting smooth and firm skin. A good sunscreen can also account for transepidermal moisture and water loss that is more prominent in areas with more colder climates, or during the night when the AC is running while you’re sleeping.
Be sure to select an appropriate physical sunscreen to all types of skin using non-comedogenic ingredients that will not block pores even upon repeated application.
