Why include SPF creams in your skincare routine

Sun exposure is unavoidable and essential for vitamin D synthesis, but it can also cause significant damage to the skin. Ultraviolet (UV) rays from the sun are a leading cause of premature aging, age spots and skin cancer. Incorporating SPF creams into your daily skincare routine is therefore crucial to protect your skin and maintain a radiant and even complexion. This article explores why SPF creams are essential and how to use them effectively.

The dangers of sun exposure

Premature aging

UV rays accelerate the breakdown of collagen and elastin, the proteins responsible for skin firmness and elasticity. This leads to wrinkles, fine lines and loss of firmness. Prolonged exposure without adequate protection can make the skin thinner and more fragile.

Pigment spots

Dark spots or age spots are caused by an overproduction of melanin due to UV exposure. These spots can appear on the face, hands and other parts of the body often exposed to the sun. They are not only aesthetically unpleasant but also difficult to treat once installed.

Risk of skin cancer

Skin cancer, including melanoma, basal cell and squamous cell carcinoma, is directly linked to UV exposure. Using SPF creams regularly can significantly reduce the risk of developing these types of skin cancers.

The benefits of SPF creams

Protection against UV rays

SPF creams contain UV filters that absorb or reflect the sun's rays, preventing the damage they can cause. It is recommended to use a product with an SPF of at least 30 for effective protection.

Prevention of aging

By protecting skin from UV damage, SPF creams help prevent premature aging, keeping skin looking young and healthy for longer. They are a key element of any anti-aging routine.

Maintaining even skin tone

SPF creams prevent the appearance of pigment spots by protecting the skin from UV rays. Daily use helps maintain an even, radiant complexion, free from dark spots and redness.

How to choose and use an SPF cream

Choosing the right SPF cream

  1. SPF 30 or higher : Opt for a cream with an SPF of at least 30 for optimal protection. Discover our Crystal Bright Primer SPF30 , a unifying, moisturizing and protective makeup base, your daily essential.
  2. Broad spectrum : Make sure the cream provides broad spectrum protection against UVA and UVB rays.
  3. Adapted formula : Choose a formula adapted to your skin type (dry, oily, sensitive, etc.).

Correct use

  1. Generous Application : Apply a generous amount of SPF cream to all exposed areas of the skin. Don't neglect areas like the ears, neck and décolleté.
  2. Reapply : Reapply every two hours, especially after sweating or swimming.
  3. Combine with other treatments : Use the SPF cream after your serum and before your makeup. For complete protection, combine it with moisturizers like Rexaline Hydra Shock Serum for deep hydration.

The importance of daily sun protection

Summer, like winter

UV rays are present all year round, even on cloudy days. It is therefore crucial to protect your skin every day, not just in summer. Incorporating an SPF cream into your daily routine is a healthy habit to maintain the beauty and health of your skin in the long term.

Comprehensive protection

In addition to using an SPF cream, wear protective clothing, hats, and sunglasses for maximum protection. Seek shade between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m., when UV rays are strongest.
