Sun Screen : Skin Protection for Every Day

Summer would be nothing without sunshine! Yes, sitting in a chair, enjoying the warmth and taking a break from everyday life. But sun rays should be enjoyed with caution!

The UV radiation emitted by sunlight has severe, negative effects on the body, especially on the skin. Why is using sunscreen incredibly important, even after the summer months? What shall I look for if I suffer from blemished skin? How to apply sun protection cream for yourself properly. We clarify everything about this today! 

Against UV Radiation: Why sun protection is so important..

Sunlight does not only have negative effects! It absolutely has a lot of positive effects on the skin, which makes its exposure a very important factor for the skin. The so called UV-B radiation promotes the Vitamin D development in the skin, which is a fundamental element for a healthy skin and thus protects it against various diseases of the skin, as well as it is stimulating the mood.

Excessive tanning and sunbathing, which has become a universal trend in the meantime, has innumerable negative consequences. Particularly, when compared to the earlier level of awareness about UV protection, it is now becoming increasingly important. As the protective Ozone layer surrounding the Earth’s atmosphere is shrinking continuously. As a result, much more harmful radiation hits the earth’s surface and thus attacks our skin. Diseases that can be caused by too much radiation include pigmentation disorders, corneal inflammation of the eyes or even skin cancer! Apart from that, the UV radiation also leads to extreme and rapid skin ageing. Hence we need to use sun screen more often than risking a sunburn. 


Sun protection: Also a must in Winter!

By mid-September, the heat is in some parts of the country is almost forgotten. But you can still enjoy the warmth of the sunshine in the afternoon or in the morning. Soon the temperatures will drop even further, and the use of the sunscreen will be well stored for next year. Stop doing this! This mistake is something you should stop doing. Especially in winter, the skin is additionally dried out by the cold and the artificial air heating and becomes stressed.

The above factors require reliable protection against the dangerous UV radiation. As the snow reflects the sunlight very strongly - and makes the radiation even more intense. Just because the thermometer does not show more than 20 °C does not mean there is any less UV radiation being circulated. No matter how well we cover our bodies in winter, the face is exposed to both the light and the cold. That's why you shouldn’t forget to include a cream with a sun protection factor of 30+  and UV protection in the daily skincare routine - regardless of the season.

Tips for Blemished skin: what to use..

If you already tend to have blemished skin, then you may be deterred by the greasy sunscreens. The mechanical sun protection filter (SPF) tends to clog the pores and only aggravates the problems with acne. Therefore, you should not resort to using a normal sunscreen in such a situation, but rather use light fluids or gels. In addition, one should keep an eye on the fact that the sunscreen contains no comedogenic substances - this is often printed on the product itself. Statements such as SPF is the only protection against solar radiation, is a common misconception, because in fact SPF is already outdated.

A much better and more modern solution is called Lipochroman, which neither clogs the pores, nor prevents the formation of Vitamin-D, yet protects the skin from the sun. In our NAVI Anti-Pollution Hydro-Day Cream Lipochroman is included, thus providing perfect protection from the daily sun exposure in everyday life.


Using Sun Screen properly: A Daily Task..

It is important not to forget any body part and to use enough sunscreen. Especially the places that are exposed to the sun directly and is unprotected, you should pay special attention, such as ears, nose or the top of the feet. Also, be careful when you think a T-shirt protects you from UV radiation: as you even get a sunburn when you lie down in the blazing sun with a white T-shirt. So make sure to use sunscreen and UV Protection cream everyday and make no compromises. 

For the daily sun protection and the optimal care for the skin, we have developed the NAVI series by Doris Wagner Cosmetics. With our products, the skin is optimally supplied with nutrients and promotes a natural, even complexion. The NAVI Night Care products include the rich NAVI-Hydro-Night cream and NAVI Ultra-Whitening Serum specially formulated for discomforting, dark areas.
