BROADSPECTRUM SKIN SUN PROTECTION
For sensitive, delicate and allergic-prone skin, protection against radiation should be a priority, as it is easy to irritate or even more serious skin changes. Creams with UV filters are a standard solution. However, when the skin has high requirements, a specialist preparation providing broadband protection will be appropriate for it – what is its action?
WHEN SHOULD I USE FILTER CREAMS?
Reaching for sunscreens in the summer season is a matter of course. The sun shines most intensely then, most of the time the skies are clear, and high temperatures tend to reveal our bodies. It is the summer that the fastest way to get burns and irritation. However, we can often find an indication that it is worth using filters all year round – and there is a lot of reason in this, because even when we only have beautiful memories after summer, the sun’s rays still reach us, especially in winter, when they reflect on snow and snow. fall on the face. If your skin is sensitive, delicate or allergic, the effects of long-term exposure to the sun can be very unpleasant: redness, irritation, itching, burning, rash – these are possible signs of sensitivity to rays. In severe cases, it causes painful burns, which are particularly exposed to people with low phototype, i.e. pale complexion. Therefore, sunscreen should be one of the basic preparations we use every day, and in the case of problem skin, broadband protection is the most appropriate.
FROM WHAT KINDS OF RADIATION DO BROADBAND FILTERS PROTECT?
Our skin is in contact with various types of radiation. Most often it is said about:
UVA – makes up most of the ultraviolet radiation that affects us. Its harmfulness consists in penetrating into the deeper layers of the skin, participating in the multiplication of free radicals, accelerating skin aging and promoting allergic reactions to the sun;
UVB – this type accounts for a small percentage of the radiation that reaches us and, unlike UVA radiation, is blocked by clouds. It penetrates the epidermis, which causes browning of the skin, as well as burns and allergic reactions. UVB rays also have a very positive function, because they enable the production of vitamin D3 in the body.
If a sunscreen cream provides broadband protection, it protects not only against UVA and UVB, but also against other types of radiation, such as:
HEV light – is visible light, including blue light emitted by TV sets, computer screens or smartphones, in front of which most of us spend many hours a day. HEV light has the ability to penetrate the skin, thus contributing to its damage and faster aging;
IR – is infrared radiation that is part of solar radiation. Although most of the dose that reaches us remains on the surface of the skin, some may penetrate deeper, generating free radicals and contributing to the loss of firmness and elasticity. IR rays are the most harmful in the case of couperose and hypersensitive skin, as it can worsen their condition.
