Sunscreen — a must-have for all spring and summer (however, experts do not tire of repeating that we need to apply it every day, rain, and snow). However, finding a tool that would perfectly fit in your daily beauty routine and it blended perfectly with other products (whether tinted moisturizer or hydrating serum), not so easy. SPLETNIK.RU collected recommendations by domestic and foreign dermatologists.
Melanie palm, MD, Director of Art of Skin MD, advises to choose a broad-spectrum sunscreen, that is, one that protects both from UVA and UVB rays.
UVA accelerates ageing of the skin, causes pigmentation, destroy collagen, and is associated with the development of melanoma. Thickens the epidermis, slows cell renewal and the skin becomes dry, rough and rude, on it there are red dots and “stars,”— explains the expert.
As for active ingredients, many dermatologists prefer mineral sunscreen chemical formulas. Harmful chemicals (“avobenzone and homosalate” particularly dangerous) turn UV light into heat, which can lead to inflammation. On the other hand, mineral substances such as zinc oxide, reflect the harmful rays.
A second theory. Sunscreen should be applied under makeup after moisturizer: put sunscreen thick layer and wait until it is completely absorbed. Moreover, the Foundation is better to drive, not to smear, sponge, for example.
Sunscreen fluid with toning effect SPF50+, Avene (1 449 RUB.)
Certified dermatovenerologist, cosmetologist and a specialist in minimally invasive procedures David Zazai
People with very sensitive skin to chemical sunscreens can cause irritation, so it is important to choose those that contain only mineral filters. I like the fluid SPF50 from Avene.
It includes a complex of antioxidants, as well as proprietary thermal spring water brand, known for its soothing and softening properties, it’s light texture. The tool gives the skin a matte finish, not a “smooth” face and does not clog pores. Only when you purchase don’t forget to watch the shelf life of the cream. When it expires, the tool becomes less effective, so the chance of burn increases significantly.
Sunscreen SPF 100+, Ultra Sheer Dry-Touch Neutrogena (700 RUB)
In a recent study published in the journal of the American Academy of dermatology, the experts found that in real conditions (not in laboratory) sunscreen SPF 100+ is much more effective to protect from sunburn, than with SPF 50+.
Sometimes we don’t apply so much sunscreen, which you need. A tool with a high SPF acts as an insurance policy to provide the highest level of protection over a long period of time. I advise patients to choose the product with the highest possible SPF, such as the Ultra Sheer Dry Touch from Neutrogena, says Joshua Zeichner, MD, Director of cosmetic and clinical research in dermatology at the hospital of the mount Sinai hospital in new York.
In fact, many, following simple logic, I think that SPF 30 protects the skin two times better than SPF 15, and SPF 100 degree twice higher than SPF 50. However, the logic of the other. SPF 15 blocks 93 percent of UVB rays, SPF 30 — 97 percent, SPF 50 (+) — 98 percent, and SPF 100 to 99 percent. As you can see, the difference between pyatidesyati and a hundred very small, only one percent. Therefore, the European guidelines recommend that to indicate on the packaging the maximum SPF 50, and anything above, mark the “+”sign.
Find cancrini democratic Neutrogena in Russia is extremely difficult, but there are many worthy alternatives that you can buy in “Girlfriend”, the “Golden Apple” or “L’etoile”.
