The environment can be pretty harsh on the skin, the worst offender being the sun. But we were never meant to always stay indoors. In fact, a many of us spend hours outside, under the same hot sun and the skin gets its share of problems from it. From unwanted drying, darkening and outright sunburns, there is a clear need to stay protected. So how do the people with best track record for skin care do it? The best Korean sunscreen comes from the brilliant minds of specialists who understand some very fundamental ideals regarding skin protection and care under the sun.
Maintaining the moisture connection
If you’ve been out in the sun for long, then you’ve most definitely felt how dry the skin can become. Now here’s an interesting fact. Did you know that moisture is one of the three key pillars of strong skin? It is an interesting meshwork made up of collagen, elastin and moisture that keeps the skin looking plump, feeling soft and smooth.
Excessive sun exposure strips the skin of this moisture, weakening the cells and leaving them vulnerable to destructive UVA and UVB rays. The best Korean sunscreens are made to keep the skin moisturized; allowing that strong skin barrier to remain intact regardless of how much time is spent out in the sun.
Blocking or absorbing
There are two different ways in which sunscreens act to protect the skin form the sun. Physical sunscreens create a physical barrier between the UVA and UVB rays and your skin, not allowing them through. These sunscreens are typically not absorbed by the skin, and instead just coat the surface. Chemical sunscreens are able to be absorbed into the skin, and they prevent UV ray damage by absorbing it directly before any harm comes to the skin.
So how can you tell the difference between physical and chemical sunscreen? Look at the ingredients list. Physical sunscreen ingredients include zinc oxide and titanium dioxide. Chemical sunscreen ingredients include octinoxate, avobenzone and oxybenzone.
If your ingredient list contains a bit of both types of ingredients, then yours is a hybrid sunscreen which is really the best of both methods of protection.
Put it everywhere
The best Korean sunscreen experts truly understand the importance of sun protection. This is why not only does sunscreen exist on its own, it is also incorporated into a variety of products. From finishing creams to cushions, foundations to BB and CC creams, you can find a lot of skin care products that have sunscreen in them!
