Now is the time for vacations and long walks in the sun. Even those who do not think about protection on ordinary days will buy "sun cream". Although modern dermatologists and beauty enthusiasts insist that sunscreen for the face is not a temporary measure for the summer, but a year-round necessity. A bit of theory and a selection of different products for all face types - below.
Protection ingredients are also different - physical (they are mineral) and chemical (they are organic).
The first, as the name suggests, protect at the physical level - they literally work like a shield that reflects the rays. There are only two such components - the well-known zinc and titanium dioxide, which leave a white coating. But without chemicals they cannot fully work - they cannot be called reliable.
How to choose sunscreen for your skin type
Sensitive and dry skin. Avoid products with artificial fragrances and choose brands that specialize in cosmetics for sensitive skin - La Roche-Posay, Avène, Bioderma, CeraVe. For stronger protection around the eyes, try a zinc oxide stick, which works as a natural sun protection barrier.
Oily skin. Creams can cause clogging of pores and the appearance of inflammation, therefore, it is better for owners of oily skin to use sanskrins with mineral components - zinc oxide and titanium oxide. Choose products without oils in the composition.
Skin prone to pigmentation. You need powerful protection - with a sun protection factor of at least 50. And even better, if the product is specifically with an anti-aging effect - they usually powerfully nourish and slightly brighten thanks to vitamin C.
Combination and normal skin. There are no strict guidelines for these skin types - choose whichever texture you like best.
