There are many Australian skin care brands such as Botani that promotes the use of sunscreen everyday but most of the times we tend to ignore this advice especially if we are not going to the beach. It may be attributed to the memory we have of sunscreen when we are forced to apply it before we can go for a swim as young children. Sunscreen used to feel goopy, sticky and uncomfortable but the ones we apply when swimming is different from the texture of the ones recommended for your daily facial routine.
There are many facial products with SPF and the key is to find the ones we love to use without feeling uncomfortable or sticky. There are products that do not only contain SPF but also treats a number of facial problems such as uneven skin tone, oily skin and dryness. There are even makeup products with SPF nowadays.
For people with dry skin, applying SPF is necessary because exposure to the sun can lead to further drying out. According to a dermatologist, the UV light is the main culprit as it causes dry skin and eventually removes the barrier that is protecting the skin.
The reason why we have morning routine for our face is to make sure that it is ready for external factors that can cause damage during daytime. The best products are those that come with SPF, moisturizer to keep the skin hydrated and antioxidants to remove toxins from the skin. Antioxidants are made to target harmful free radicals that can be the reason why our skin cells are damaged.
Applying skin care products with SPF can also help reduce post-acne hyperpigmentation which is caused by UV light, again. When this happens, the skin produces more melanin as a counter to the inflammation. The end result is a black spot left behind once the zit has healed.
People with oily skin can turn to products from brands such as Botani to find one that absorbs oil and at the same time provides protection from the sun. It keeps excess oil in check while protecting the face from UV rays.
