Proteção Solar o Ano Inteiro? Sim!

Year-Round Sun Protection? Yes!

Do I really need to use Sunscreen all year round?

The short answer is yes .

Although the skin is most vulnerable during the summer holidays, the risk of sun damage exists all year round. Even on rainy days or overcast skies, 80 to 95% of the sun's rays can reach us.

Simply put, UVB radiation is responsible for burns and skin cancer and UVA radiation is the one that penetrates deeper into the skin, causing aging , which can manifest itself through blemishes, wrinkles, loss of elasticity and shine. .

Accidental sun exposure, such as what happens on the typical daily commute, has a cumulative effect . And recent studies indicate that cells can be stimulated not only by the rays emitted by the sun, but even by blue light, emitted by screens and artificial lighting . In other words, our constant and prolonged exposure to blue light increases damage such as pigmentation, wrinkles and age spots and even changes in the thyroid , as it penetrates the skin even more deeply than UV rays.

Therefore, the safest thing for your skin is to protect it daily with a sunscreen - and the data on blue light only reinforces how important it is, even if it's just to work on the computer, indoors.

How to choose Sunscreen?

Conventional sunscreens contain chemical filters , which are absorbed by our skin, then neutralizing UV rays. The problem is that, in addition to retaining unnatural substances in the skin, these formulas are also not biodegradable, meaning they also harm the environment. In addition, there are chemical filters, such as octinoxate and octocrylene, suspected of being endocrine disruptors. At mpl'beauty, all sunscreens, facial and body , are mineral. The active ingredient is zinc, capable of creating an efficient physical barrier, which reflects UVA and UVB radiation and protects the skin.

There are two formats of face sunscreen: Puro Sol Zinc Solar Milk (SPF30+) and Sunscreen Stick (SPF35+). Puro Sol Zinco has all the protective and repairing botanical active ingredients of the Puro Sol Serum , to which zinc has been added for advanced protection. The stick has a solid consistency and you just need to touch it to your face to apply, as it melts when it comes into contact with the skin's temperature.

Any of them can be applied to the face and neck after your usual skin cleansing and moisturizing routine. Both are equally effective - the choice really depends on what you consider most practical for you!

It is also important to protect some areas of the body on a daily basis, if you wear cooler clothes - we are talking, above all, about the shoulders, chest and arms . For this, there is the mineral body sunscreen , in cream and super easy to apply.

Don't forget to also protect children's skin , which is much more sensitive and vulnerable to the sun - we have a facial stick and a special body protector for children, enriched with anti-inflammatory and hypoallergenic ingredients.

And finally, it is important to mention that, whatever sun protection you use, it does not invalidate other precautions, such as avoiding prolonged exposure and at times when the sun is most intense ; wear a hat and sunglasses ; stay hydrated on hotter days; Reapply sunscreen regularly and always after going to the water or if you sweat.

The Sun is wonderful and we should make the most of it, but always in moderation and with all care - no tan in the world is worth the risks to the skin :)
