Sun Damage in Winter?

Yes, 90% of pre-mature skin aging comes from exposure to UV rays from the sun. UVB is what causes sunburn. It affects the outer layer of skin. You get 70% of UVB during the summer, but UVA ~which is more damaging to the deeper layers of skin~ is constant all year long.

What can you do? Experts agree that applying sunscreen on your face everyday ~even during the winter months~ is an essential practice that protects your skin. Also, if you are using skin care products with alpha hydroxy acids, it’s even more important to protect your skin because “alpha-hydroxy acids may increase your skin’s sensitivity to the sun and particularly the possibility of sunburn.” from the FDA Protect your skin year round–from the cold, harsh winter to the hot, blistering summer with Cell Block-C New Cell Protection SPF 20 from BeautiControl

Cell Block-C SPF 20 uses the latest technological breakthroughs to target existing damage such as sagging skin and fine lines. It contains a gentle, all-physical sunscreen –micronized titanium dioxide- to protect against UVA and UVB radiation and a super-charged antioxidant blend to scavenge free radicals.

According to Paula Begoun, author of “Don’t Go to the Cosmetic Counter without Me,” BeautiConrol Cell Block-C New Cell Protection SPF 20 is a Best of the Year of 2008 because: “This is a remarkable mineral sunscreen for normal to dry or sensitive skin. It is fragrance-free and loaded with antioxidant and cell-communicating ingredients, and the packaging will keep these sensitive ingredients stable during use. There are very few sunscreens/daytime moisturizers available that supply skin with such an impressive cocktail of beneficial ingredients. As such, this deserves strong consideration, particularly by those with rosacea.”
