One of the most important beauty products you own is your sunscreen. Up to 90% of all skin changes related to aging are caused by sun exposure. The main active ingredient that you want in your sunscreen is zinc oxide. Zinc oxide provides the most extensive protection throughout both the UVA and UVB ranges of solar energy. Zinc is a mineral that does not absorb into sunscreen or absorb in to your skin. It is considered to be significantly different than synthetic sunscreen chemicals that only work by absorbing in to your skin.
In addition to making sure your sunscreen has Zinc Oxide in it, you also need to be reapplying throughout the day. One application in the morning isn’t going to protect your skin the entire day. If you are swimming, plying sports, or spending the day out in the sun, then you should reapply sunscreen every two hours, or every time you get out of the water.
