If there is one beauty mantra that has been passed on from generation to generation, this is it—drink plenty of water and wear your sunscreen. And, both of them have to be practiced throughout the year. Yes, both! You have to wear your sunscreen for all 12 months and not just during the summer. BTW, if you have forgotten about your SPF while being cooped up inside your house, it’s time to change that stat! When it comes to sunscreen, there’s just one rule—always wear it. Even when you are at home!
Your skin needs to be protected from harmful UVA & UVB (Ultraviolet A and B) rays when you are indoors as well. Turns out, our windows, laptop, television and phone screens expose us to skin-damaging lights. Given that we spend so much time in front of our screens while working from home, not including SPF in our skincare routine can be disastrous. And wait a sec, sunblocks are not just meant to protect us from UV rays. They are practically our skin’s BFF and also protect our lives. No kidding!
By applying SPF everyday, we lower the risk of contracting various skin related diseases. It also prevents premature aging of skin. Ladies, let us get this straight—the sun is not our skin’s bestie. Its spectrum majorly comprises of infrared and visible light that can harm our skin at a cellular level. These harmful rays can cause elastosis, oxidative damage, photoaging and damage our collagen. As a result, we may face fine lines, sagging and wrinkles as well! Oh and also, if you have been consistently purchasing products online to get rid of pigmentation and hyperpigmentation, then calm down. They can fail to show the expected results if you have not added the right sunscreen to your skincare regime.
Wondering how to solve all these needs? Don’t stress because we have just the right product for you! We’re talking about ITC Dermafique Suncare range that is powered by the revolutionary Full Light Technology. Meaning, it will target the 360° sun spectrum and shield our skin from the solar aggression of visible light, infrared, UVA and UVB.
Now that you are convinced that you need to include sunscreen in your skincare routine, here comes the big question—how do we choose the one that suits our skin type? Not going to lie, but for the longest time, I have personally hated sun blocks. It made my skin oily, created a white layer, and gave me zits. I’m sure that’s the reason why a lot of us are still apprehensive about SPFs, right? Well, time to change that. ITC Dermafique has products that suit every Indian skin perfectly.
Wait, before you start adding them to your cart, here’s a guide for choosing the right sunscreen as per your skin type:
If you are blessed with a normal skin type, then congratulations, you are officially God’s favourite child. You can also choose between different sunscreens (gel or cream based) and opt for the one that works the best for you.
If you have oily and acne prone skin, then you should definitely avoid products that are creamy or heavy in texture. You don’t want unnecessary breakouts, right? If you are confused about which sunscreen to choose, go for the one that has a matte-based formula as it will not make your skin appear greasy.
People with sensitive skin react to sun exposure more harshly than the rest of the skin type. They can get rashes, redness and inflammation if exposed to the harmful rays of sun for a longer duration. So, the ideal choice for them would be to pick a gel-based sunscreen with ingredients that will not only protect their skin from UVA and UVB rays but also moisturise it.
Finding the right sunscreen for dry skin can be a little tricky. You need to go for a product that is oil or cream based and will moisturise your skin properly. But at the same time, it shouldn’t be overly greasy as you don’t want breakouts and zits. The safest option is to choose gel-based sunscreen as it will hydrate your skin efficiently and will not clog your pores either.
Ladies, you gotta add ITC Dermafique Suncare products with RSF 90, PA++ and SPF 50 to your skincare routine if you want to protect your skin and keep it healthy. NGL,they work like a charm!
