Two Healthy Skin Sunscreens That Could Change Your Complexion Forever

best healthy skin sunscreens

One of the top skin care mistakes people make is neglecting to wear a protective sunscreen with broad spectrum SPF protection on a daily basis. Remember, the dangerous UV rays linked to premature wrinkles and skin cancer are just as powerful in winter months as they are in hot summer months. Therefore, you should always wear SPF protection on your face, neck, and all exposed skin. However, some sunscreens actually do more harm than good, which is why it’s helpful to understand basic sunscreen ingredients and terms. That way, you can make sure you’re choosing the best sunscreen to target your own unique skin care needs. In this blog post, I’ll define some important terms used in the sunscreen industry, as well as explain why and how they can benefit your specific skin care needs.

Healthy Skin Sunscreens 101

In order to understand why these sunscreens by Spalina, Inc. are so effective, it’s important to understand some basic terms. In this section, you’ll find easy-to-understand definitions of the following terms:

  • Zinc Oxide and Mineral Sunscreens
  • Antioxidants C + E
  • Ceremides

Zinc Oxide and Mineral Sunscreens

There are two main types of sunscreens. One category includes “chemical sunscreens,” and the other encompasses “mineral sunscreens.” Chemical sunscreens can actually permeate your skin’s barrier and infect your body with toxins. In contrast, mineral sunscreens are safer because they remain on the surface of your skin. Zinc oxide is one of the healthiest forms of SPF protection.

Antioxidants C + E

Antioxidants are vitamins and minerals that protect your skin from free radical damage. They also promote a firmer, younger-looking, glowing complexion.

In Spela’s mineral tinted SPF 40 sunscreen, there are two specific antioxidants:

Vitamin C helps increase collagen and elastin production. It also naturally slows down the aging process, which means less fine lines and wrinkles.

Vitamin E also helps prevent aging. In other words, skin care products with Vitamin E can stop pesky lines from even forming in the first place. It also heals acne scarring and provides the hydration so desperately needed by dry or dehydrated skin types.

According to researchers from the University of Illinois, sunscreens containing antioxidants are more effective than sunscreens without antioxidants. The specific antioxidants mentioned in the study are Vitamins C and E. The reason these healthy skin sunscreens are better is because, no matter how good the sunscreen, a small amount of UV radiation may still reach the skin. The antioxidants serve as “back up protection” with revitalizing effects for the skin.

Ceramides

Ceramides are lipids that compose most of the skin’s moisture barrier. They help shield your skin from free radical damage caused by the sun and other environmental factors. They also help your skin stay properly hydrated. In fact, skin that lacks a sufficient amount of ceramides is frequently dry, itchy, and uncomfortable. It can even lead to a damaged skin barrier.

Products like professionally-formulated probiotic cleansers and sunscreens promote a strong skin structure that is resistant to premature aging or excessive dryness.
