How to Choose Sunscreen
Here are some tips on how to choose sunscreen. These tips will help you select the best product to protect your skin from the damaging effects of the sun. Remember that all skin types are susceptible to the harmful effects of over sun exposure, no matter what color.
UV rays are responsible for 90% of photo-aging and are the leading cause of skin cancers. For these reasons, it is extremely important that we all use a sunscreen daily.
Types of Sunscreen
There are two types of sunscreens. The chemical version (which we have been warned against using) works by absorbing UV rays while the physical blockers reflect the sun's rays. The combined ingredients in the chemical version can release its own free radicals, which subjects the skin to even greater damage. Even more importantly, they may not actually protect against UVA rays, which are linked to Melanoma and photo-aging by degrading the collagen and elastin in our skin.
