In this day and age, most of us have already heard about just how harmful the sun’s effects can be on our skin. Countless types of sunscreens are sitting on store shelves, just waiting to be snatched up by the next concerned customer this coming summer.
Although we know about the benefits of wearing sunscreen, how can we pick the right one for our skin’s individual needs?
Sunscreens are products combining several ingredients that help prevent the sun’s ultraviolet (UV) radiation from reaching the skin. Two types of ultraviolet radiation, UVA and UVB, damage the skin, age it prematurely, and increase your risk of skin cancer. Therefore making the right choice is imperative.
I have recently been introduced to the IMAGE Skincare’s PREVENTION+ Collection. The range is full of anti-pollution sun care products that help protect skin from the sun’s damaging effects. Safe for both adults and children, and come in a selection of creams and easy application sprays, these products come with UVA, UVB and infrared protection and are made with organic ingredients like agave leaf extract, jojoba oil, and goji berry, a powerful antioxidant.
With 2 brand new products just introduced, the PREVENTION+ Collection continues its mission to help aid and protect an even wider range of individual skincare needs. Not all of us require the same exact type of sunscreen; some of us are athletic during the summertime, and some of us need consistent hydration for the driest of skin.
While many sunscreens can be hard to consistently wear for those of us who stay active in the summertime, the PREVENTION+ sport sunscreen spray will provide advanced anti-aging, sun-protective benefits during the most rigorous and demanding of outdoor sports activities. Its natural ingredients, made with organic plant stem cells, aid in making this sunscreen completely paraben free and perfect for long-term sun exposure. This lightweight spray absorbs quickly, providing broad-spectrum SPF 50 protection for your skin.
For those of us with dry skin, the summer sun can truly cause a major toll on our bodies. Flakiness, sensitivity, discomfort; they all come with the sun’s damaging effects. The new PREVENTION+ pure mineral sunscreen spray can change how those with dehydrated skin feel about being in the sun.
Offering incredible protection skin benefits, this spray actually nourishes and hydrates skin without leaving a heavy, greasy feel behind. With a light, weightless finish, this sunscreen simply glides on, so your skin can feel completely comfortable and protected in the sun.
On application, I found the ultra sheer lightweight spray so much easier to apply, which absorbs quickly and evenly into the skin with a refreshingly light and pleasant fragrance. The cans have a clever locking system on the top to prevent accidental loss of product when not in use. No fear of unnecessary mess and leakage so ideal for travel and transportation. Formulated for the face and body, although advisable not to spray directly onto the face but to spray on your hands then apply to the face and blend. Also, re apply every two hours when exposed to the sun.
