sunscreen for summer,snowperk

Most conflict is rooted in unmet needs. Some of those needs can only be met by sunscreen for summer. It doesn’t matter whether you are a beachgoer or not: You will need to make the first move towards protecting your skin from harmful rays of the sun no matter the forecast.


In fact, sunscreen needs to be an important step prior to heading outdoors. I wear sunscreen every each morning and I bring a small size with me to go about my day and reapply four hours later. It is that important. In short, applying (and reapplying!) SPF protects your skin from the sun’s powerful UV rays, minimizing your risk of dark spots, painful burns, wrinkles and skin cancer.


“It’s important to use sunscreen on a daily basis to protect you from the damaging ultraviolet radiation from the sun, on both sunny and cloudy days. The sun’s rays cause skin cancers to develop, such as squamous cell carcinomas, melanomas, and basal cell carcinomas and the daily use of sunblock reduces this risk by half. In addition, the daily use of sunscreen helps prevent premature aging of the skin, causing the degradation of our skin’s collagen, which contributes to formation of fine lines, wrinkles, and sagging. Without proper sunscreen protection, one is more likely to develop sun spots, age spots, melasma, hyperpigmentation, discoloration, and uneven skin tone and texture.” says Dr. Michele Green Cosmetic Dermatologist, Upper East Side NYC. Nevertheless, shopping for the best sunscreen can be overwhelming to consumers albeit online or brick and mortar.


How to choose (and use) the best sunscreen for summer for your skin


Look for broad spectrum on the label: This ensures your SPF protects against both harmful UVA and UVB rays. (UVA rays prematurely age skin and UVB rays burn; both can cause skin cancer.) Our experts recommend choosing SPF 30 or higher.


Go for water-resistant options: Even if you won’t be jumping in for a swim, a water-resistant sunscreen will stay on longer while you’re sweating. If you are doing extensive outdoor activity, choose an SPF of 50 or higher to ensure you stay protected, recommends Henry W. Lim, M.D., immediate past president of the AAD.


When in doubt, choose lotions: They’re easy to apply generously and evenly—which is key in order for them to work effectively. If you use a stick sunscreen, it requires at least four swipes on each area of the skin to get the job done. On the other hand, many “sprays are inconsistent” Dr. Ploch says. If you opt for a spray, be sure to apply an even coat and rub in well.


Formula matters: Physical or mineral sunscreens (made with zinc oxide or titanium dioxide) sit on top of the skin and deflect UV rays, while chemical sunscreens (made with ingredients like oxybenzone or avobenzone) work by absorbing them. If your skin is sensitive or acne-prone, mineral sunscreens are typically your best bet, says Ramsey Markus, M.D., a board-certified dermatologist at Westside Dermatology. Plus, they’re a great option if you prefer a more “natural” product (they’re reef-safe!). “All that said, there is no denying that the chemical sunscreens are more transparent, which sometimes trumps everything. It’s really a personal choice more than anything,” he says.


Rub it in well: “Apply the amount of sunscreen you can rub in first,” says Heidi Waldorf, M.D., founder of Waldorf Dermatology Aesthetics. “Let it sink in, then apply a second time. That’s the easiest way to get the full recommended amount of sunscreen to ensure you get the protection on the label.” Ideally, you want to apply a shot glass-sized amount to your whole body and you should always reapply every two hours and after swimming or sweating.


The importance of layering the right moisturiser


There is scientific evidence behind the importance of “layering ingredients? 


We took a look at some studies on the active Vitamin C by Dr Sheldon Pinnell.


His research showed that when the skin is at a pH of between 2 – 2.5, it greatly increases the absorption of Vitamin C.


However, because this is on the acidic side of the scale, people with sensitive or reactive skin might notice stinging when applying Vitamin C moisturisers or serums.


The pH of your skincare products can play a major role in not only their effectiveness but also how well they interact with your skin.


So, don’t just select your moisturiser based on the benefits, you must also consider the way the ingredients react when you apply them in your skincare routine.


snowperk moisturisers are formulated at a low pH around 5-6 which is close to skin’s natural pH, therefore it is safe and effective for all skin types even sensitive skin.
