First of all, SPF keeps your skin well protected against harmful UV rays which is vital for the health of your skin. Bear in mind two things: UV radiation is powerful enough that glass cannot block its rays, so remember to apply SPF in all weather and even if you're staying indoors all day.
As well as maintaining the health of your skin, applying sun cream everyday helps to reduce unwanted signs of ageing because UV rays are the biggest cause of skin ageing over time. The anti-ageing skincare routine's most crucial step is SPF, since it prevents more stubborn skin concerns.
Paula's Choice day creams are factor 30 and higher so you can count on proper sun protection. They come in a variety of textures and finishes, whether you prefer rich creams or weightless textures, and they won't leave a white cast. As a general rule, all skincare works best when it suits your skin type, so keep this in mind when choosing your SPF.
When deciding between synthetic and mineral sun creams, the main difference is whether you have oily/combination skin or sensitive skin. If you have oily to combination skin, we recommend an SPF containing synthetic ingredients. If you have sensitive skin, we recommend a mineral sunscreen.
Synthetic and mineral sun filters both have unique advantages. Synthetic sunscreens absorb the UV radiation in your skin and work best once drawn into the skin, while mineral sunscreens contain zinc oxide or titanium dioxide to absorb, reflect and scatter harmful UV rays. The performance of both is equally good and they are both equally safe.
