✔ Protects against UVA and UVB rays
✔ Stimulates collagen production
✔ Natural tan accelerator
With this handy travel sized sunscreen in your purse or car you always have a great sunscreen at your disposal.
This lotion is the best sunscreen against UVA and UVB rays for those looking to protect themselves against daily exposure to sunlight.
The low SPF factor still allows some tanning to occur but also supports the natural protection of the skin against sunrays.
Why is it important to protect the skin against both types of rays?
UVA rays (long wave sunrays) and UVB rays (short wave sunrays) each have a different effect on the skin.
UVA rays penetrate into the deepest layers of the skin. You want to avoid exposure to this kind of sunray at all costs because they are extremely damaging. You can do this by using a good sun lotion or sunscreen.
UVA rays damage the tissue of the skin, which reduces the elasticity and therefore ages the skin.
And they damage the natural protection system that our skin has. Long-term and consistent unprotected exposure to UVA rays can weaken the skin to such an extent that it may cause skin cancer.
UVB rays, on the other hand, burn the skin superficially when the skin is exposed to sunlight without having applied sun lotion.
It causes the initial reaction of the skin: melanin is made and your skin will get a light brown colour.
But when exposed to UVB rays in larger doses, UVB rays will burn your skin and your skin cells will be ‘alarmed’ causing them to turn red.
One of the key ingredients of this sunscreen is avocado oil.
This oil contains an element which is responsible for stimulating the production of collagen.
Scientists so far have not succeeded in identifying the exact element which is responsible for this but research shows that it is present within avocado oil.
When we are young our skin is capable of producing collagen on its own. This makes the skin strong and elastic. However, as soon as we turn 25 years old, the production of collagen slows down and your skin becomes more vulnerable to external factors. Wrinkles start to form and the skin is less resilient.
All the more reason to ensure your skin is properly protected and one more reason to choose for a sun lotion that supports and stimulates the production of collagen.
Apply the suntan lotion 30 minutes before your skin is exposed to the sunlight and repeat every 2 hours and after you went swimming.
