Most of us likely grew up with our parents reminding us every summer to apply sunscreen when we went to the beach or planned to spend the day out in the sun. And they were right to remind us! Treating a bad sunburn at the end of a long day is never fun, that’s for sure. What our parents may not have known, and what you may not be familiar with either, is how important it is to apply sunscreen daily regardless of the season or whether you’re spending a lot of time outside.
Studies have increasingly shown that damaging UV radiation can easily penetrate glass. Digital pollution is a danger as well, from radiation emitted by our computer and phone screens. Consistent exposure to harmful radiation from the sun or from our screens can increase our risk of skin cancer and contribute to earlier signs of skin aging, such as wrinkles and brown spots. That’s why our #1 skincare tip is to apply sunscreen every day!
If you, like so many others, are just realizing now how vital it is to apply an effective sunscreen every day, indoors or outdoors, rain or shine, you’re certainly not alone. These factors are exactly why, here in Tewksbury, we make sure to provide the highest quality skin care products, including sunscreen. It’s why we want to tell you all about Nelly De Vuyst SPF 30 Mineral Sunscreen.
This product is mineral-based, as opposed to the more-common chemical-based sunscreens. Mineral-based means that it reflects harmful UVA/UVB rays instead of absorbing them. Mineral-based sunscreens are ideal for anyone concerned about the effects of chemical sunscreen ingredients being absorbed through your skin, although studies still seem conflicted on whether those chemical ingredients are enough to truly do us harm.
You may be wondering why everyone doesn’t simply opt for mineral-based sunscreens and avoid the chemical quandary altogether. Valid question! It is often because most mineral-based sunscreens leave more of a white residue on your skin than chemical-based sunscreens, leaving you with white streaks wherever you’ve applied it. That’s another factor that we love about the Nelly De Vuyst SPF 30 Mineral Sunscreen — it is more translucent than the typical mineral sunscreen, making it a great option for people with darker skin tones.
Not only is Nelly De Vuyst SPF 30 Mineral Sunscreen a more translucent product — it also contains a moisturizer, which further promotes overall skin health and hydration. The healthier and better hydrated your skin is, the better it can continue to function properly and protect you from external pollutants, all while looking more youthful and radiant.
Even though beach season is coming to an end for the year, we hope you now see that good skin health — especially sun protection — is essential all year round. In addition to decreasing your risk of skin cancer and preventing signs of skin aging, daily sunscreen application can also prolong the effects of your favorite advanced skin rejuvenation treatments.
