Going to the sea, to the country or to the woods, and just wandering around the streets in a hot period, you risk instead of a uniform beautiful tan to get pigmentation, redness and inflammation on the skin of the face. This can be avoided by using special sunscreens. But what is good and what to look for when choosing, read in our article below.
Properly selected sun cream for the face is designed to perform simultaneously several functions:
- Slows down skin aging. Long exposed to the influence of the sun, without protective equipment, the skin of the face dries out, its structure is destroyed. This can lead to the formation of so-called crow’s feet around the eyes, deep wrinkles on the forehead, omission of the corners of the mouth, etc.
- Each cream protects against burns. You can get a strong redness and burns, being on duty under the scorching sun without a special cream. Such skin lesions are accompanied by very painful sensations and visible changes in appearance.
- Protects against the appearance of age spots. During intense absorption of solar radiation, our skin releases a pigment called melanin. Thus, the body is protected from negative effects. With prolonged exposure to the sun, the normal production of melanin is disturbed, and pigment spots appear on the skin, which then have to be treated for a long time.
- Reduces the risk of cancer. This fact makes many people start to use sunscreen for the face and control the time spent in direct sun.
Which is better and how to choose
The selection of sunscreen for the face should be approached very seriously. Better buy it in specialized cosmetic networks or in a pharmacy. For the first time, give preference to a well-known brand with lots of good reviews. Sun cream for the face can not be replaced by a tool for the whole body.
Video about the rules for choosing a cream:
Zinc oxide (zinc oxide), titanium dioxide (titanium dioxide) or autobenzon (avobenzone) must be present in such creams.
It is also desirable that the cream contains a substance such as Mexoryl SX or Tinosorb. They reliably protect the skin from harmful beta radiation.

How to apply
The rules for applying sun cream are very simple. It must be applied on washed and dry skin for 20-30 minutes before going outside. It is best to use such a tool after applying the usual day cream. During the day, the sun layer needs to be updated. The surface of the cream can be matted with the help of powder with a sunscreen filter.
Do not use the usual powder without a filter, because it will negate the entire protective effect of the cream.
