Sunscreen is an essential part of any beauty routine, but it can be tricky to know where to fit it in. To have and keep healthy and radiant skin, don't overlook the importance of wearing a broad-spectrum sunscreen daily.
Bonjout Beauty's Le Balm solid serum provides radiant results and helps repair and regenerate the skin. Combining our award-winning product with sunscreen creates a well-rounded skincare routine that enhances your skin from within.
Why Should I Add Sunscreen to My Skincare Routine?
UV rays from the sun can damage your skin and cause premature aging, wrinkles, and even skin cancer. UV light has three types: UVA, UVB and UVC. UVA penetrates the skin, damages collagen and elastin and UVB damages DNA and triggers photoaging. Fortunately, UVC is absorbed by the atmosphere.
Sunscreen helps protect your skin from these harmful types of rays!
Types of Sunscreens
There are two types of sunscreens: chemical and mineral. Chemical sunscreens help absorb UV rays, while mineral sunscreens stay on top of the skin to physically deflect UV rays.
Chemical sunscreens may only protect against UVB rays, while mineral sunscreens offer broad-spectrum protection.
Tips for Adding Sunscreen to Your Skincare Routine
Choose the Right Sunscreen
Understanding the various levels of SPF (Sun Protection Factor) is crucial when buying sunscreen. Look for a sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or higher and broad-spectrum protection: this means it will protect you from both UVA and UVB rays.
Apply Sunscreen Liberally
Apply sunscreen to all exposed skin, including your face, neck, ears, and hands 30 minutes prior to sun exposure. Be sure to reapply every two hours, or more often if you're sweating or swimming.
