It is very important to protect your face against the damaging effects of the sun. The skin on your face is thinner than the skin of your body, which means that the signs of skin ageing can be seen more quickly in the face. Sunscreen ensures that the skin burns and ages less quickly. It also reduces the risk of skin cancer.
It is not entirely true that you only need to apply sunscreen onto your face when you sunbathe. Several studies show that people who use sunscreen daily have 24% fewer wrinkles or signs of skin ageing than people who don't. Even when you don't feel or see the sun, the damaging UV rays can still reach the earth. It is therefore important to use a sunscreen product on a daily basis.
The skin of your face is more sensitive than the skin of your body and therefore it deserves its own sun cream. At Optiphar you can find an wide range of sun creams for the face. Always adjust your sun protection to your skin type.
