I have a sign on my mirror that says "Sunscreen is your friend" and when it comes to protection and anti-aging this is true. We all love a sunny day. Waking up to sunshine and a beautiful day can elevate your mood. Feeling the warmth of the sun on your skin on a cool day can motivate you to go for a walk. And who doesn't look a little better with the sun kissed glow of a tan? The sun even provides Vitamin D which is essential to bone health.
But, the ultraviolet rays from the sun are damaging to your skin. The sun has many types of ultra violet rays but the two types that reach the earths surface are UVA and UVB.
UVA are the ultraviolet rays that cause premature aging. And UVB rays are the ultraviolet rays that can burn your skin.
It is important to use skin protection anytime you are going in the sun. Sunscreen is your first line of defense. Solar Defense by Liscia is our preferred sunscreen. Solar Defense is a medical grade sun protection product that contains lecithin a highly emollient lipid that locks in moisture.
