The Real Lowdown On Natural Sunscreen
Posted by Nitya Uppal in Body, Skin Care
Our organic skin care philosophy is that if you can’t eat it, then it doesn’t deserve to be applied on your skin. Just as it is important to dress according to the season, (light cottons for summers, woollens for the winter), it is equally important to apply the right creams. In fact, if you think about it, you’re applying it onto your skin, which penetrates, assimilates and affects the way you look and feel. Reason enough to be paying closer attention?
People with sensitive skin tend to develop rashes when they apply regular sunscreen, the reason for that is the presence of cinnamates and oxybenzones. If you’re looking to invest in all-natural sunscreen then there are several top skin care brands offering excellent products. Aloedermal Solar Sun Milk Spray £19.99 is one such product that is free from parabens, silicones, preservatives or colourings and contains a high concentration of anti-radical substances. It is a fluid milk that easily melts onto your skin and has been developed to protect it against the attack of sunlight. With a high protection of SPF 50, it’s gentle on the skin whilst allowing for a quick, gentle and uniform tan.
The best form of natural sunscreen is when you know how to take advantage of the shade. If you’re really in pursuit of steering clear of sun light then dermatologist suggest staying indoors when the sun rays are the strongest (10am to 4pm). Also, applying a thick layer of sunscreen before heading out for the day isn't enough - you need to apply the formula every few hours depending on the amount of sun exposure. To help you remember to use it the trick is to keep travel sized bottles in multiple places - carry a small bottle in your handbag, keep one at your office desk and one on your nightstand. When you’re out and about, spotting it around will automatically encourage you to use it more often.
When hunting for a natural sun care product make sure you’re looking for one that shields your skin against both UVA and UVB rays. A product that deserves some attention is Natura Bisse C+c Dry Oil Antioxidant Sun Protection Spf 30 £47.50. It’s loaded with a powerful blend of UVB and UVA filters to protect your skin from sun radiations and at the same time helping prevent the appearance of dark spots and loss of elasticity. This oil-free antioxidant-rich sunscreen also contains a good amount of Vitamin D to combat inflammation and irritation.
Applying the right products isn't the only way to achieve a natural sunscreen, we need to incorporate a healthy diet that is rich in antioxidants. A daily intake of fresh fruits and vegetables is a must for every woman. We love our summer sun but we’re all aware that is considered the biggest cause of visible ageing. To enjoy this season stress-free, keep your skin safe and opt for some all-natural skin care methods to keep your complexion happy and glowing.
