Choosing the Best Sunscreen for Your Skin Type – OROGOLD Reviews
UV rays from the sun may be invisible, but they penetrate deep into your skin, with overexposure leading to skin cancer. A sunscreen is one of the best ways to protect your skin from sun damage, but, what many do not realize is, your sunscreen choice should be based on your skin type. From oily skin to dry skin to sensitive skin to mature skin, OROGOLD takes you through choosing the best sunscreen for your skin type.
To keep it healthy, dry skin needs more moisture than other skin types, which is why a sunscreen that has a moisturizing base would be best suited. Rather than applying your moisturizer first and your sunscreen on top, look for a cream-based sunscreen that contains both.
Due to the heat in the summer causing increased sweating, oily skin can often feel even greasier than usual, with acne breakouts being much more likely. For this reason, a sunscreen that is gel or aqua based would be best, as the alcohol content means that these not only have a drying effect on the excess oil, but will also not make your skin look even shinier. For those of you that suffer from acne, OROGOLD recommends avoiding cream-based sunscreens, as these are often greasier and can encourage more breakouts. Sunscreens that contain the UVB filter ensulizole are usually of a lighter consistency, and won’t lead to increased acne.
Sensitive Skin/Skin Conditions
Those who have sensitive skin, are prone to allergies, or have a skin condition such as rosacea, should avoid any sunscreens that contain preservatives or fragrances, as these easily irritate the skin. Look for physical ingredients when choosing a sunscreen, as well as ones formulated with salicylates or ecamsule, as these are less likely to cause a reaction.
Sun damage is the leading cause of aging, and, although mature skin will have already received a significant amount of exposure over the years, it is still vital to keep your skin protected, especially as you don’t want to accelerate your signs of aging even more, nor do you want to develop a cancer. For older people who have decreased mobility and find it difficult to apply sunscreen to the hard-to-reach areas of the body, a sunscreen spray would be the most efficient. For the rest of you, a hydrating suntan lotion would be the best choice.
Your sunscreen should be a regular part of your daily skin care routine, which is why you need to give as much thought to choosing the best sunscreen as you do with other skin care products. No matter what your skin type may be, a sunscreen that offers both UVA and UVB protection should be chosen, with SPF 30 for daily use, and SPF 50 if you are going to be spending more time in the sun. OROGOLD reminds you to make sure that you reapply your sunscreen every couple of hours, to keep your skin sufficiently protected, and applying it at least 20 minutes before stepping outside, giving it enough time to work its magic.
