5. Avoid broken blood vessels
Additionally, the effect of ultraviolet rays damaging collagen fibres may cause the walls of blood vessels to thin out. Collagen surrounds all capillaries, veins, and arteries to protect them from mechanical damage. As a result, damaged blood vessels may lead to the appearance of bruises, bleeding, and the formation of small hematomas.
6. Keeps complexion even
One of the many benefits of sunscreen is that it helps to avoid dark spots (also called liver spots) and skin discolouration. The spots vary in size and shape and can appear suddenly as you’re aging. Liver spots appear because the UV light increases the production of melanin so that overactive cells produce high amounts of pigment resulting in the appearance of unevenly distributed spots.
Hyperpigmentation is generally harmless, although it may be confused with some forms of melanoma, so it is crucial to check every unusual formation on the skin with a dermatologist. Investing in sunscreen may reduce the expenses needed to perform diagnostics. The cost of protecting your skin may be even more reduced by choosing budget options.
Can Sunscreen Improve Your Skin?
Apart from the protection from sun rays, SPF products provide a natural glow to the skin, almost as if you’re applying highlighter. However, the sunscreen glow looks more natural as it is not used locally but distributed around the whole face. Another tick in the list of benefits of SPF!
Additionally, there are many broad-spectrum sunscreens, like Heliocare 360 Water Gel SPF 50 that are rich in vitamin C, E and antioxidants from green tea extract. The extract reduces inflammation, calms irritation and works specifically against acne-causing bacteria so that the skin is not only protected against the sun, but also from external pathogens.
Should I Wear Sunscreen every day?
The SPF product should be applied every day even if you’re staying inside for the whole day. UV light can pass through dark clouds and glass, so it is very important to keep protecting your skin barrier all the time.
UV-B is present a lot in summer, but the effect of UV-A should be kept under control for the whole year. Additionally, UV-A damage is irreversible and accumulative, so it might be essential to protect the skin from sun ray's effects as soon as possible. Wearing sunscreen is not just a regular summer beauty tip, but a lifehack on how to keep your look fresh and healthy in a long-term perspective.
Does Sunscreen Prevent Aging?
Aging is a natural process so wearing sunscreen can’t prevent it directly. However, using SPF products may help to slow down the process by reducing the number of free radicals activated by UV light which damages the DNA. As a result, a simple sunscreen applied a couple of times a day may protect the cells from internal damage and allow them to perform their functions at the best level possible.
