Sunscreen, Why Natural Sunscreen is Better for your Skin

by Abhinav G. Movie Enthusiast

Many people are unaware that the main reason that there are visible signs of aging of their skin because of over-exposure to the sun. While all we all require some sunlight to remain healthy and get vitamin d, over indulging in the sun can lead to premature aging of the skin. They say that if you have big french door windows that you should be wearing sunscreen in your home as well not just when you are outside.

A tan can give the impression that we look healthier, but the opposite is true due to damage that is occurring beneath the skin. There are reasons why tanning is so bad for you, but no one listens. The UV rays from the sun promote the production of melanin—which is why we tan—but this also creates free radicals that destroy lipids and proteins on the outer most layer of skin, the epidermis. Stay away from tanning beds, and even spray on tanning is bad for your skin.

You might not care while in your early 20’s, but when you are in your 30’s and look older than your age, its too late to undo the damage done. Now is the time to start no matter your age to start wearing sunscreen. Check out Solar Aegis which is a natural plant/mineral based sunscreen. Solar Aegis is a broad spectrum UVA/UVB, SPF 30, all-natural, plant and mineral-based lotion that goes on clear and dry. It is non-greasy and non staining. Its special formulation is even great for darker skin tones, including African American and Latino, because it does not leave a white residue like many sun protection lotions. Remember no matter your skin tone, you will burn at some point leaving damage that can not be undone. Why?

Because damage also occurs deeper within the skin as the collagen is destroyed. Collagen is responsible for the elasticity of skin. Obviously with the reduction of the elasticity of the skin we will begin to look older sooner. Anyone like wrinkles? Thought not, then why bring it on sooner than life naturally does?

Other than remaining out of the sun as much as possible, the best course of action is to always make sure you are wearing a sunscreen that is SPF 15 or higher. Solar Aegis is 30 SPF which is higher than most sunscreens that are out there and at a price anyone can afford. Still sometimes, sunscreen can irritate sensitive skin, so test it out on a small area before using. Inside the elbow is a good place to test if you have sensitive skin. Apply a small amount and wait 24 hours. No reaction you should have no problems applying this sunscreen anywhere else.

Make sure that all exposed areas of your face are covered including the tips of your ears. Use a lip cream with an SPF as lips tend to burn easy. You should also wear a wide brimmed hat and sunglasses when possible.
