The importance of sunscreen is something that apparently needs to be reinforced into our collective consciousness again and again and again. One survey showed that only about 18 percent of men regularly use sunscreen on their face or any other exposed skin when they go outside on a warm, sunny day for more than an hour, or when they are on holiday.
Even more importantly, men’s skin is more likely than women’s to be damaged by UV rays. And with the hot- streak we’re having these days and the summer holidays just around the corner, the dangers of sun exposure can’t be emphasized enough. Sorry to say, gents, there’s no such thing as healthy tan. But the good thing about sunscreen is that it’s never too late to start using it. Remember to choose a broad-spectrum sunscreen to guard against both UVA rays (which contribute to skin aging and cancer) and UVB rays (responsible for burn) and that SPF 30 is sufficient at adequate amounts. Finally, we have rounded up these three current top-picks…
1. The new Anthelios UV Correct Face Sunscreen SPF 70 with Niacinamide from La Roche-Posay is clinically- tested to blend easily into all skin tones as it helps to protect exposed skin from UVA/UVB rays thanks to the plentiful amount of antioxidants and niacinamide inside.
2. The Avene Intense Protect 50+ is a very broad-spectrum suncare product that provides intense hydration for up to eight hours. As an added bonus, it is produced without any silicone and is based on an environmentally- friendly formula.
3.The Sunleÿa G.E Age minimixing global sun care SPF 50+ from Sisley acts like a veritable anti- aging shield for the skin whenever the sun is shining. All in all, it helps prevent the formation of wrinkles as well as dark spots, dehydration and loss of firmness.
