Sunscreen…Why? I don’t burn.

Baby oil and iodine. That what I used most of the years I spent sunning myself at the beach. Now…I pay and pay to fix all that aging damage.

Sunscreen can save you from 90% of all the aging our skin goes through. That’s right…90%. Luckily with adequate application of a good sunscreen, you can prevent all that aging and all the money it takes to try and repair that damage.

All sunscreens are designed to prevent the sun from damaging the skin. One sunburn and you have received sun damage. One severe sunburn and you are at a greater risk of skin cancer.

There are two different types of sunscreen: chemical and physical.

Chemical:

There are more chemical sunscreens than physical sunscreens. They all work by absorbing solar energy and transforming it into a chemical reaction. This prevents the suns energy from being transferred to the skin. Many of the clients I see who says they can’t use sunscreen are usually using chemical sunscreen. The chemical reaction under the skin can cause a bad chemical reaction and potentially increase an unwanted skin reaction.

Physical:

Many people are familiar with physical sunblocks that left the skin white and pasty. Now we have advanced formulations that have solved this problem. This is the sunscreen I prefer for myself and my clients. Physical sunscreen actually prevents the sun from getting into the skin.

And just another reminder…if you are using Retinols or Benzoyl Perioxide, you must use sunscreen. These two ingredients make your skin very sensitive to the sun and her in Coloraado, we get al lot of sun!
