Pourquoi faut-il protéger sa peau du soleil ?

Why should you protect your skin from the sun?

The sunny days are coming and you can't wait to enjoy them? If the sun is beneficial for our body, it is very important to protect our skin against damage caused by the sun's UV rays. Daily use of sun protection is essential to protect the skin against damage caused by the sun's UV rays and thus prevent premature aging of the skin .

Why is it essential to use sun protection?

Skin Cancer Prevention: Prolonged exposure to the sun is the biggest risk factor for developing skin cancer. Regular use of sunscreen can help reduce this risk by protecting the skin from the sun's UV rays.

Prevention of premature skin aging: UV rays from the sun can cause irreversible damage, leading to an acceleration of the aging process. Using sun protection can help prevent signs of premature skin aging, such as wrinkles, fine lines, loss of firmness and age spots.

Prevention of hyperpigmentation: Overexposure can also lead to increased melanin production which can cause hyperpigmentation and the appearance of dark spots. Using sunscreen can help prevent hyperpigmentation to maintain an even skin tone.

Maintaining Healthy Skin: Finally, regular use of sunscreen can help maintain healthy skin by protecting the skin barrier and reducing damage caused by the sun's UV rays.

How to choose sun protection for the face?

It is important to choose sun protection specially designed for the face. Body sunscreens may be too thick or greasy to use on the face, and they can also cause irritation and breakouts. Facial sunscreens should be lightweight, non-greasy and safe for sensitive facial skin. If you have combination skin, new non-comedogenic options now exist to protect all skin types and limit the appearance of imperfections.

We recommend choosing sun protection with a high SPF. Dermatologists recommend an SPF of at least 30 for adequate protection against the sun's UV rays. It's important to choose broad-spectrum sunscreen, meaning it protects against UVA and UVB rays.

How to use facial sunscreen correctly?

For effective sun protection, it is important to use sun protection correctly. Here are a few tips :

  • Apply sunscreen approximately 15 minutes before sun exposure.
  • Apply enough sunscreen to cover the entire face, including sensitive areas such as lips, ears and neck.
  • Reapply sunscreen every two hours if you are outside for an extended period of time or if you sweat or swim.
  • Avoid direct exposure to the sun during the hottest hours of the day, between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m.
  • Use other methods of sun protection, such as a hat, sunglasses and protective clothing.

Our recommendation? Double cleanse each evening with a gentle cleansing oil for the skin and a non-astringent cleansing gel to rid the skin of sun protection residue without altering its hydrolypid film.

In conclusion, using sunscreen on the face is essential to protect the skin from damage caused by the sun's UV rays. Sun protection can help prevent skin cancer, premature skin aging, hyperpigmentation, skin redness and inflammation, and maintain healthy skin. It is important to choose sun protection specifically designed for the face, with high SPF and broad spectrum protection. By using sunscreen correctly, you can help protect your skin from damage caused by the sun's UV rays and maintain youthful, healthy skin for years to come.
