Protection from the sun is the most important tool for anyone concerned with keeping their skin in it’s best shape. Sunscreen can help: prevent wrinkles, brown discolorations and prevent skin cancer. Without a doubt prevent is worth a pound of cure, and when dealing with anti-aging sunscreen really is the most beneficial product. SPF 15 is the minimum rating to look for and greater is better for some skin colors and conditions. Sunscreen must be applied liberally and UVA protection is crucial.
When using a sunscreen it’s important it contains one of the following active ingredients: avobenzone (sometimes listed as butyl methoxydibenzoylmethane), titanium dioxide, zinc oxide, Mexoryl (ecamsule) or, outside the U.S., Tinosorb.
CeraVe started in 2005 when researchers partnered with dermatologists to develop the CeraVe product line. Their well-priced products are formulated to protect the skin’s barrier, and are never tested on animals. What makes their products so special is that they contain scientifically-identified vital ceramides that penetrate the skin’s surface to deliver moisture and provide healthy looking skin. SKINFAQ is a big fan of CeraVe and what their products have to offer.
