If you are looking for an effective product to protect your skin from the sun’s rays, you may want to consider an Anthelios sunscreen. Whether you’re looking for daily facial protection, protection for summer sports or even for skiing, an Anthelios sunscreen will deliver.
Formulated by La Roche Posay, a skin care company that is dermatologist recommended, an Anthelios sunscreen offers protection from both UVA and UVB rays. While UVB rays are responsible for sunburns, it is the UVA rays that cause the damage that long term, leads to skin aging. Wrinkles, saggy and leathery skin, age spots and even some types of skin cancers can all be attributed to UVA rays. Most skin experts recommend sun protection as the best thing you can do for your skin. And you should remember to protect your skin from UV rays year round. UVB rays are not as prevalent during the winter months, but UVA rays are present year round even in the dead of winter. And they can penetrate through glass so you just can’t escape them.
An Anthelios sunscreen is formulated with Mexoryl SX or Mexoryl XL, two photostable molecules that are combined with titanium dioxide and avobenzone (Parsol 1789 that is stabilized with octocrylene). This combination offers protection against both UVA and UVB rays. The photostable nature of the Mexoryl molecule ensures that your Anthelios sunscreen will continue working over time. Many other brands available on the market break down after initial exposure to sunshine, leaving you vulnerable to burns and skin aging.
The Anthelios sunscreen range is available in creams, sprays and lotions so you are sure to find a formulation that suits your needs. Choose from SPF 30 to SPF 60 protection so that you will be protected regardless of your skin type.
