Dermatocosmetics for sun protection

After the winter "hibernation" the sun officially takes the reins in spring and begins not only to shine, but also to warm up all living things more strongly. So, after spending several hours in the active sun, you can not only brown up, but also get a sunburn. It's time to think about sun protection.

Unless an extremely lazy person today does not know what ultraviolet is and why it is harmful. It draws moisture from the skin, destroys collagen bonds, protein, hyaluron. A logical consequence of such a “stretch” is wrinkles. Within a couple of weeks under the active sun without protection, the effect of photoaging can appear on the face.

Photoaging is a destructive process that occurs only under constant exposure to solar or ultraviolet (solarium) radiation. And how good it is that the fashion for refried skin has long been left behind, and that it has been replaced by aristocratic pallor or a healthy, very light tan.

But if photoaging is an unfavorable “side effect” of an aesthetic nature, then the danger of getting skin cancer - melanoma, poses a real threat to life and health. What actually happens after this phrase? More than half of those who neglect sun protection think that the story with melanoma is not about him. But as you know, prevention is cheaper than treatment and moral suffering, for sure. Therefore, it is worth stocking up on dermatocosmetics for sun protection already from spring.

The main goal of dermatocosmetics for sun protection is to protect our body from harmful radiation, and not to resist sunburn. When UV radiation hits the skin, it goes out of its way to create an effective barrier and begins to produce melanin. So, in fact, tanning is the skin's reaction to the damaging effects of ultraviolet rays. And this process is dangerous because under unfavorable conditions, under the influence of the same ultraviolet rays, active cell division begins - melanocytes, which subsequently degenerate into a tumor.

How can dermatocosmetics for sun protection protect against solar radiation? All this is due to the presence of special components in the formulations - filters. Chemical and physical.

2 commonly used physical filters in sunscreen cosmetics:

- zinc oxide (Zinc Oxide) - a mineral compound of inorganic origin, has a high degree of protection against a wide range of rays, reduces the production of free radicals in the deep layers of the skin. Does not absorb into the skin, blocks all types of rays;

- titanium dioxide (Titanium Dioxide) - a chalk mineral with high reflectivity. Hypoallergenic, does not provoke the formation of comedones and acne, suitable for skin prone to irritation. Protects from UVB rays and partly from UVA radiation.

These components create a barrier - a thin film on the skin that does not allow radiation to pass through.

There are more chemical filters, but not all of them are able to protect against harmful UVA radiation.

More often, in the production of dermatocosmetics for sun protection, mixed types of filters are used, because practically none of them alone is capable of providing maximum protection from hazardous radiation.

Apply dermatocosmetics to protect from the sun before leaving the room. Not when you made your way to the beach. After all, protection is needed from the very first minutes of exposure to the sun.

In addition, applying dermatocosmetics for sun protection requires periodic renewal if you are combining tanning and bathing. Especially if you are using a product with physical filters. They are not absorbed, but work on the surface of the skin, and therefore contact with water can quickly disrupt your protection. Refresh it after every contact with water.
