As the seasons change, this month we will be providing useful information regarding how you can protect your skin from the sun’s harmful rays as well as keeping your skin glowing with an even complexion.
To ensure a smooth transition to sun exposure, we propose you this month our tinted sun protection products. The objective is to protect your skin against UV rays while keeping it hydrated and homogenized.
Before focusing on product solutions, let’s first understand why it is so important to protect the skin from UV rays?
To better protect our skin from the sun, it is helpful to understand the different types of rays that our sunshine is comprised of and how these can affect the skin.
Do you know how the sunlight is made of?
Here is the answer:
- 2% ultraviolet light (UV)
- 47% visible light
- 51% infrared
Ultraviolet light is part of non-visible light solar spectrum. Although it represents only 2% of the sun rays, we need to primarily protect our skin from them. The reason is that because they are the most energetic due to their short wavelengths (200nm to 400nm).
Ultraviolet light can be beneficial for the body, in particular to produce vitamin D. Though, they are also the cause of several skin issues such as premature skin aging or hyperpigmentation.
Below, we have introduced the different types of ultraviolet lights and their impacts on the skin.
Among the ultraviolet light that reaches the Earth, UVA represents 97% to 99%. UVA rays have the longest wave rays and can even penetrate up to 75% through windows. 20% to 30% of UVA can reach the dermis, therefore they are responsible for the signs of skin aging. Indeed, UVA rays are able to generate the production of free radicals. Moreover, they also stimulate the synthesis of melanin and will result in your skin changing colour i.e. darker skin tone.
UVB rays also reach the Earth. They represent 1% to 3% of ultraviolet light and have shorter wavelength than UVA. Also, compared to UVA, only 10% of UVB can reach the dermis. UVB affects the superficial layers of the skin and will lead to solar erythema (sun burn). UVB rays are more energetic than UVA rays and can generate molecular disorders and in the long-term can lead to skin cancer.
UVC rays have the shortest wavelength and are absorbed mostly by the ozone layer. Being the most energetic, they could cause the most damage. Fortunately, they do not have the full potential to reach us on Earth.
Armed with new UV knowledge, you may be asking how best to prevent skin damage from sun exposure? Dermaceutic Laboratoire has the solution for that. For longer sun exposure, the tinted Sun Ceutic 50+ is the recommended protection. As for daily routine, Derma Defense can be used as moisturizer with an additional benefit of SPF 50.
Dermaceutic Laboratoire recommends that you protect your skin all year round as you are continuously exposed to the sun’s rays. Even driving around or being indoors, there is still exposure to certain rays. Therefore, it is vital that a good sunscreen is incorporated into your daily skincare protocol.
An effective sunblock is classified as a broad-spectrum sunblock and should provide protection against UVA and UVB rays at the least. It should also be defined as having at least a SPF of 50.
Dermaceutic offers highly effective, everyday solutions to protect your skin from the sun. Our expertise in dosing and combining premium actives contributes to deliver optimized product efficiency.
In addition, Sun Ceutic 50+ contains active ingredients such as Hyaluronic Acid and Stem Cell Stimulator which have anti-aging properties. As for Derma Defense, the Xylitol is an anti-dehydration agent.
