The "Dynamic Duo", antioxidants and sunscreen, work in concert to protect your skin from developing wrinkles and all the other symptoms of aging skin. Absolutely very anti-aging routine needs the help of this powerful dynamic duo.
There are a number of ways to incorporate this dynamic duo into your skin care routine.
That way, every morning when you apply your moisturizer, you also add protection against the sun.
Though to really address a range of aging skin concerns, it is beneficial to incorporate a few different anti-aging treatments by using the layering technique to provide the skin with as much nourishment as possible to promote healing as well as to protect against future damage.
Remember that it is critical to reapply regularly throughout the day, especially if you will be spending time out in direct sun.
Sunscreen, as the name implies, screens out the skin damaging rays of the sun while sunblock actually blocks the sun damaging rays from reaching the skin.
A good sun product should screen or block against
both UVA and UVB rays.
Protecting the skin from the sun significantly reduces free radical activity which thrive in over exposure to sunlight. Your skin needs that protection!
Free radicals work to break down the collagen and elastin in the skin which in turn causes the skin to wrinkle, sag, and produce more melanin which in turn increases the occurrence of age spots.
What some neglect to do is remember to reapply a sunscreen product every few hours throughout the day. Once a day just isn't enough, especially if you are out in the sun.
A variety of anti-aging skin care products incorporate antioxidants including moisturizers, toners, masks, serums, peels, and scrubs which all help to protect the skin against free radical damage.
