Do you know that sunscreen can be used for anti-aging? A study from Australia reveals that wearing a sunscreen everyday is the secret to younger looking skin.

A research from Australia found out that people who applied a drop of sunscreen daily had fewer wrinkles on their skin than those who didn't used sunscreen regularly.

Sunscreens are designed to protect your skin in the sun, filtering out harmful ultraviolet radiation. They are still the first and best line of defense against premature aging from the sun.

Most of us know the importance of wearing sunscreen in the summer months to avoid sunburn and damage, but it really should be a year-round preventive health measure. Always wear sunscreen, no matter your skin color or tone. Sunscreen dates back to ancient Egypt, where rice bran extract and jasmine were used to help shield skin from the sun. Chemists invented the first commercial sunscreen in 1936, and it has been improved upon ever since. Modern sunscreens are water resistant, and are included in many cosmetics and beauty products, such as primers, foundations, serums, and creams

Some people assumed and misinterpret the purpose of sunscreen, they thought that sunscreen are only used during beach times or you were in a very hot field but the truth is NO. You can wear sunscreen daily even at home. Sunscreen prevent premature aging caused by the UV radiation. UV radiation causes premature breakdown of collagen and elastin in skin which resulted in fine lines and wrinkles. The sun’s ultraviolet radiation is responsible for an estimated 90 percent of visible signs of aging. Regular use of sunscreen allows you to enjoy smooth, youthful-looking skin for years longer.

Sunscreen can also prevent skin hyperpigmentation which is also caused by too much sun exposure. This causes your skin to darken due to the changes of melanin and this will make you susceptible to skin hyperpigmentation.

Sunscreen can prevent skin inflammation which causes breakdown of cells leading to damage and free radicals. Wearing sunscreen can also keep you away from sun sensitivity like sunburns and redness.

How to Chose a Sunscreen

Choose a sunscreen with broad spectrum, suncreens labeled with UVA and UVB rays. Remember that a product labeled with those broad spectrum had passed a certain test. Your sunscreen should have sun protection factor or SPF of 30 and it could be higher. SPF 15 filters out 93% of UVB rays while SPF 30 filters 97% and SPF 50 filters 98% of UVB rays while SPF 100% filters about 99%.

Selecting a sunscreen depends on how sensitive your skin is to burning and cosmetics, the dryness or oiliness of your skin, previous sun and skin cancer history, and your general medical history.

Sunscreen is mainly used to protect the skin against ultraviolet radiation, which damages the skin.

Sunlight generates warmth (infra-red) that we can feel, visible light (that our eyes can see in daylight) and ultraviolet light (UVL) which we cannot see or feel but which can penetrate our skin.

For these reasons, sun protection is strongly recommended throughout our lifetime.

Sunscreens do not provide total protection and should be used in conjunction with other sun protective measures such as wearing sun protective clothing and staying indoors or out of the sun during peak sunshine hours. is strongly recommended throughout our lifetime.

Remember that everyone can use sunscreen!

Men, women and children over 6 months of age should use sunscreen every day. This includes people who tan easily and those who don’t — remember, your skin is damaged by sun exposure over your lifetime, whether or not you burn.

Using a sunscreen of at least SPF 30 is enough but if you don't used it regularly or daily then you won't get the benefits of its anti-aging properties. Make it as a part of your daily routine before you go or before start doing your task even at home as long as you are exposed to tiny sunlight exposure. To get the best and effectiveness, you should reapply it every interval hours.

I remember reading that sunscreen is like a wax covering for the skin thus ehy it retards aging and all. Mostly because of paraben constituents in it.

Well paraben was formerly used in all skincare products but side effect is it ages the skin faster. But yeah, they're more expensive now because of the lack of parabens, resulting in the use of essential oisl which is actually makes the sunscreens that expensive
