We all know that sunscreen is important but with scientific evidence supporting sunscreens ability to make us look younger we should all be checking our new beauty products for SPF.
Queensland’s own Institute of Medicine have proven that sunscreen slows down the process of skin ageing.
Over the study which was conducted with 900 men and women it was found that those who applied sunscreen most days had no detectable ageing of the skin while those who didn’t use sunscreen showed obvious signs of ageing and deep coarse wrinkles.
Therefore we all need to be in the loop when it comes to sun protection and with great sources available on the go such as the free SunSmart app there is no reason why you should be caught out unprotected by the sun in your location.
In combination with some great foods, SPF and strong products you can maintain your youthful skin quite easily!
Great foods for sun protection include cooked tomatoes which are full of Lycopene which maintain healthy skin, neutralises free radicals and aid in UV protection and skin irritations.
Equally strong are blueberries which are full of antioxidants more so than any other and withhold the richness of polyphenols and the powerful combination of vitamin A, B, C and E which pack a powerful anti-ageing punch.
Green and black teas are also packed with polyphenols that can help stop cancer development by limiting the blood supply to cancerous areas.
And dark chocolate is another super food containing flavanoids which improve the skins ability to fight skin damage given its hydrating, oxygen and boost of blood flow.
Lastly, ideal for protecting your skin from ageing is our extraordinary Eclipse Age Defence Daily Face Balm SPF15 18g which is infused with both Titanium Dioxide and Zinc Oxide that act as physical barriers powerfully protecting your skin from both harmful UVA and UVB radiation without irritating the skin.
Perfect to use on its own or as a base for foundation, this unique hypoallergenic, water/sweat resistant, oil-free formulation is suitable for all skin types.
So if your looking to immediately brighten and maintain your youthful skin, start filling those fine lines and start consuming the right foods and using the best products on offer.
