With all but essential employees working from home these days, there is one part of everyone’s skincare routine that may be slipping – and that’s SPF. Spending significantly more time indoors may tempt you to slack on your usual sunscreen application, but just because you are quarantined doesn’t mean SPF should get put on hold.
Windows only protect from UVB rays (the kind that cause sunburn and skin cancer), not UVA rays (the kind that age us). Did you know that even screen time can impact your skin? Blue light, the type of light emitted from phones and other devices, is known to cause hyperpigmentation. Therefore, SPF remains the single most important skincare product! You should still wear your sunscreen everyday, just like you did pre-quarantine.
Theraderm Platinum Protection Facial Sunscreen contains zinc oxide, which protects against UVA radiation by acting like millions of microscopic mirrors on the surface of your skin. Instead of absorbing the UVA rays, zinc oxide actually reflects them! This sunscreen also provides UVB protection by absorbing the UVB rays, meaning these molecules take the damage so that your skin doesn’t have to.
With a light, non-chalky look and feel, Theraderm Platinum Protection Facial Sunscreen gives your skin a dewy, healthy look, all while providing you with the protection of SPF 43. This SPF level is proven to be most beneficial in terms of the moisturizing effect to the skin itself, gives the widest spectrum of UV protection, and won’t burn or sting eyes if sweat or swimming causes it to migrate.
So the bottom line? Don’t skimp on your SPF. Slather up daily, whether you’re logging some screen time or soaking in some much needed Vitamin D in your back yard.
