Sun skin damage and how to prevent it
Hello everybody! I’m Dr Liv and I’m a dermatologist from Zurich with focus on skincare and skinfood. In this video, I will talk about skin damage and how to protect it. We all want to look young and healthy. So the golden rule is: Use sunscreen every day – every day!
Why using sunscreen?
Your skin needs shielding from harmful rays! There are two different kinds of sunscreen action to make the UV radiation not harmful to your skin: Sunscreen works either in a physical way and reflects the UV-radiation. You call them mineral filters (the sunscreen gives you a whitish appearance because of the ingredients like titanium dioxide or zinc oxide). Or it works in a chemical way (don’t get nervous about chemical). It transforms the rays into low energy so it protects your cells from getting damaged. I recommend using sunscreen every day (a combination of both). It slows down the development of wrinkled skin and reduces the appearance of facial red veins and pigmentation – it’s the best anti-aging product you can get!
How to use sunscreen?
This should be your morning routine, not just during summer: Wash your hands before applying the sunscreen! Use it underneath your makeup and don’t forget your ears and neck. It’s also important to reapply it during the day. Why? Because you don’t want to get wrinkles, rednesses and pigmentation.
