We face many problems day to day that cause stress on the body. One silent stressor that most people ignore is exposure to the sun.
Too much sun can cause a variety of issues that range from sunburn to cancer.
This is the one of the main reasons why we tend to be more prone to various skin problems.
The big cosmetic companies routinely blast out ads for moisturizers but is moisturizer enough??
Without proper UVA and UVB sunblock, you are leaving your face/neck/exposed skin open to getting sunburn or developing age spots or worse.
Protecting your face with a daily moisturizer that has an SPF of at least 20 is a great start. (Though the higher the SPF generally the better).
Incorporating complimentary ingredients like hyaluronic acid or layering with other products is even better.
What is SPF?
SPF stands for Sun Protection Factor.
As the name itself implies, this moisturizer renders a special factor against the detrimental risk of ultraviolet rays on the skin.
Applying moisturizers with SPF will give you the luxury to stay under the sun without the worry of skin burning (a few hours +-).
But aside from these benefits, here are the reasons why using a moisturizer with SPF is the safest way to keep your skin healthy and young looking.
Is A Natural Daily Moisturizer With SPF Enough Protection?
The short answer is yes...but it as always, it's going to depend on how you're using it.
The main thing is that you have to make sure you're putting enough on and putting it all over.
If you miss the area around your eyes, it's not going to be the product's fault if you get a burn there.
There are studies that have shown people generally put sunscreen on more liberally than SPF moisturizer.
So, the more the better!
What’s so special about SPF moisturizers that have hyaluronic acid?
Moisturizers with SPF of 20 or higher are wonderful protection against potential skin issues but if you are like most people, you want to have vibrant, youthful skin.
That’s where Hyaluronic Acid comes in.
Hyaluronic acid is the most powerful natural moisturizing ingredient known to science.
It has the ability to hold 1000 times it weight in water and helps to cushion and lubricate joints and is a major component of skin tissue.
The skin holds almost fifty percent of the hyaluronic acid naturally found in the body.
Hyaluronic Acid not only plumps and moisturizes your skin, it also helps heal and sooth inflammation.
As we age, the level of hyaluronic acid declines in the skin.
The result is the occurrence of common skin problems such as fine lines or wrinkles.
It can also trigger to the accumulation of skin aging spots (dark spots).
A moisturizer that has both SPF AND Hyaluronic Acid will not only protect and prevent premature aging but will penetrate down to the dermal matrix to keep your skin hydrated and fresh looking.
