Skin Deep – July 2016 South Warrington News Welcome to ‘Skin Deep’ – This month’s feature looks at ‘Choosing a Sun Screen – Select the Right One for You’. Any questions, just ask Dr. Angie Winnington-Sharp – www.cheshireskinclinic.com [email protected] or 01925 263660 & 07967 481594. Next month ‘Skin in your Thirties can be Your Best Ever’. We all know that we should wear sunscreen, but sometimes the choice of products seems utterly bamboozling, and the prices vary hugely. Sunscreen should really be a part of every skin care regime and selecting one with a broad spectrum that protects against UVA and UVB is crucial. The ingredients are controlled by the FDA in order to maintain high standards and act effectively. They do this by protecting against premature ageing, reducing the risk of skin cancer, decreasing inflammation and providing a non-irritating physical, chemical and biological barrier against ambient UV light. Other important characteristics may be water resistance and the degree of sun protection offered (SPF), normally over 25 is adequate with regular re-application. If the sunscreen binds to the skin effectively, it can also act to repair any existing damage, thus increasing the degree of protection. Natural botanical ingredients can help to produce a smooth, shear coverage without the unpleasant sunscreen odour and white/oily appearance that can be associated with some of the thicker, greasy formulations. It is best to apply sunscreen around 30 minutes before exposure, and always staggered with other products/make-up to allow it to bind successfully to the skin. If you feel that your sunscreen in addition to your other skin regime products are too ‘heavy’ when all applied during the day, use your non-sun protecting products at night, this has the added benefit of allowing them longer to act in the absence of make-up.
