Protect your skin from the sun and other external aggressions

The sun is our best friend in preventing vitamin D deficiencies, but it is also the main factor in the aging of our skin. Exposure to the sun without sunscreen is responsible for the appearance of wrinkles, spots and skin diseases such as skin cancer. If you want to avoid premature signs of aging, you should include a moisturizer with sun protection in your daily routine all year round. Do you want to know why?

Moisturizing cream with sun protection. How and when to protect yourself from the sun?

You need the sun to prevent vitamin D deficiency and osteoporosis. Experts advise 20 to 30 minutes a day to cover daily needs. All other exposure to ultraviolet rays (UVB and UVA) is harmful. We are all aware of the need to protect ourselves from these ultraviolet rays when we go to the beach or the swimming pool in summer, but what happens in winter or during the rest of the day, when we are not “sunbathing”?

The sun hits any exposed area of your body even when you walk down the street. Experts agree that we should protect ourselves even in winter. Clothing protects the skin on your body, but what about your face? Cold, wind, temperature changes and pollution are also very aggressive factors for the skin on your face. And you must protect it.

Including in your daily routine a moisturizing face cream with an appropriate SPF according to the intensity of the sun and your skin type is the best guarantee to avoid the appearance of signs of aging on your face.

What is SPF and what does it indicate? Degrees of protection

The SPF (Sun Protection Factor) is the level of protection that the sunscreen provides against UV rays. The number indicates the degree of protection it offers, although the difference between them is not as great as we might think.

According to the American Cancer Society, no sunscreen with spf provides total protection. Therefore, let’s see what degree of protection each spf offers.

  • Creams with sun protection 100. Filter approximately 99% of UV rays.
  • Creams with spf 50. Protect from 98% of the sun’s harmful rays.
  • Sunscreens with spf 30. Avoid 97% of UVB rays.
  • Creams with spf 15. Filter only 93%. The American Cancer Society warns that this factor only protects against sunburn, but not against cancer and aging.

In addition, you should bear in mind that if you bathe or sweat while doing sports, you will have to reapply the cream. Creams that indicate that they are waterproof should indicate the minutes they last, which can be between 40 and 80 minutes when swimming or perspiring. And remember that if you towel dry, you will have washed off all the cream! So don’t forget to reapply each time.

Can I combine face cream with spf sunscreen?

Not only can you, but you should. Moisturizers with sun protection should be part of your daily routine any time of the year. Toskani’s Sun Protection Cream and Sun Protection Cream Pro are 50 SPF moisturizers designed for all skin types (normal, dry and combination).

Sun Protection Cream Pro also includes retinol, one of the most potent anti-aging forms of vitamin A.

How to take care of your skin from other external aggressions

As we said at the beginning, the skin on your face is attacked by other factors in addition to the sun. Environmental pollution and blue light from screens also attack our skin without us even realizing it.

They are also responsible for the premature appearance of the signs of aging. They dry out the skin, destroy collagen in the dermis – an effect similar to that of UVA rays – and can cause oxidative stress in skin cells.

What can you do? Besides using a good moisturizer with sun protection and antioxidants. Toskani’s Anti-Pollution Ampoules are an intensive daily treatment with vitamins A, B3, C and E, known for their antioxidant effects.

Remember that the best way to prevent the signs of skin aging on your face is protection. In addition to moisturizer with sunscreen, cover up with a wide-brimmed hat in summer, seek shade between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m., when the sun’s rays are strongest, and avoid tanning booths and sunlamps.

The skin on your face is subject to daily aggressions. Prevent the premature appearance of spots and wrinkles with a moisturizer with sun protection.
