Sin embargo, The world of sunscreen can be overwhelming due to the diversity of options available.. Entre ellos, Mineral sunscreens have gained popularity due to their safe and effective nature. Next we will explore what mineral sunscreens are., how they work and what are their benefits for the skin.
¿What are mineral sunscreens??
Los mineral sun filters, also known as physical filters, are active ingredients used to protect the skin from harmful ultraviolet rays (UV) of the sun. These filters are mainly composed of natural minerals, comozinc oxide and titanium dioxide -present in the formulation of the two facial sunscreens ofSuncademy-, instead of the synthetic chemicals used in traditional sunscreens.
¿How mineral sunscreen works?
The key to the operation of sunscreens of this type lies in their ability to reflect and disperse UV radiation.. When we apply the protector on our skin, Mineral particles create a protective layer that acts as a physical barrier on the skin's surface. When UV rays hit this barrier, are reflected away from the skin, preventing them from penetrating the deeper layers.
Por otro lado, Chemical sunscreens work by absorbing UV rays and subsequently converting this energy into heat, which then dissipates. Although they are also effective, Some people may experience irritation or allergic reactions to the chemical ingredients used.
Benefits of these mineral filters for the skin:
1. Safety for sensitive skin: Mineral sunscreens are gentle and less likely to cause irritation, making them an ideal option for people with sensitive or allergy-prone skin.
2. Immediate protection: Unlike chemical sunscreens, minerals begin to protect the skin as soon as they are applied. They do not require time to be absorbed, which is especially useful when you need quick protection.
3. Environmentally friendly: Mineral ingredients are biodegradable and cause no harm to aquatic ecosystems, unlike some chemical sunscreens which can be toxic to corals and marine life.
4. Broad spectrum of protection: Mineral sunscreens offer protection against the two main types of UV rays: UVA rays, that cause premature aging of the skin, and UVB rays, responsible for sunburn.
5. They do not clog pores: Mineral filters are non-comedogenic, which means they don't clog pores. This is beneficial for people prone to acne or with oily skin..
6. Long protection duration: Unlike some chemical sunscreens that can degrade with sun exposure, mineral filters remain effective for longer periods.
En definitiva, mineral filters represent a safe option, effective and environmentally friendly to protect our skin from harmful UV rays. Their ability to create a physical barrier and reflect the sun's rays makes them an excellent choice for all ages and skin types.. By incorporating mineral sunscreens into our daily personal care routine, we can enjoy the sun and its benefits while protecting our skin in the long term.
