We have all heard of UV rays and how they are harmful to our bodies but what many people do not know is that there are two types of UV rays known as UVA and UVB. My patients which I follow with a Obagi360 ® or Obagi-C ® Systems or Obagi Nu-Derm ® know how it is important to use the correct sunscreen protection. Omnce again, not all of them are sufficiently effective to protect your skin
These rays affect the body in the same way ,but UVA is able to penetrate deeper into the skin. Therefore, it is important to protect yourself against these harmful rays on a consistent basis and not just when the sun is out!
These rays are the cause of sunburn, brown spots (sun spot), rapid ageing of the skin and an enlarged risk of skin cancer. Patients who start having dark spots , more they wait to treat it more those spots get deeper and harder to treat to remove them.
However, there is no need to fear! With the Sun Protection range from Obagi, your skin is guaranteed to look younger and radiant with long lasting effects!
Depending if you have a dry or sensitive or oily skin or if you want an added antioxidant in the cream or if you prefer a physical sunscreen, a sun protection product that deflects and scatters UV rays instead of absorbing them, Obagi have them all . Also, some of the Obagi sunscreen exist with a tinted version like Obagi Sun Shield Broad-Spectrum SPF50 ; it uses fine particles of Zinc Oxide and Octinoxate to ensure your skin remains healthy and natural, fragrance free for all skin types !
As a reminder, don’t forget , avoid the sun between the hours of 10am – 2pm may to help reducing the risk of premature skin ageing.
Try it out and make sure to protect your skin for a great start in September!
