Sunscreen is an important anti-ageing tool because it protects your skin from the harsh UV rays of the sun. UV rays are the primary reason for the skin’s ageing process, and by fighting UV rays, sunscreens provide anti-ageing benefits.
The frequency of sunscreen reapplication depends on the type of UV filter present and the water-resistance of that sunscreen.
Chemical sunscreens- Once every 2 to 3 hours
Hybrid sunscreen- Once every 3 to 4 hours
Physical/Mineral sunscreen like SAFESCREEN range- Once every 6 to 8 hours.
Yes! Clouds can only partially filter the sun’s rays, which makes it necessary to use sunscreen even on a cloudy day to avoid tan and photoaging.
For dry skin, you need to look for a pH-balanced gentle cleanser with ingredients like glycerin that preserves the moisture in your skin. Avoid cleansers that contain exfoliating ingredients. Cetaphil Gentle Cleanser and Tvaksh Facelin are good cleansers for dry skin.
Wash your face twice to thrice daily with a cleanser/facewash. If you wash your face more often, your skin will become dry, dull and partially greasy.
The necessity of a moisturizer depends upon the humidity of the place where you live in. If the humidity is low in your place, you may need to apply moisturizer twice to thrice a day, but if the humidity is high, you may restrict the moisturizer to once per day, or you may even skip the moisturizer.
It depends on the extent of the oiliness of the skin. If your skin is moderately oily, you can choose a water-based moisturizer like the Avene Thermal Water Spray. But, If your skin is very oily or greasy, you can skip using a moisturizer.
Sesderma is a powerful anti-ageing cream with a tri-retinol system containing Retinol, Retinaldehyde and Retinyl propionate. For better action, this cream must be used at night before bedtime on clean, dry skin. It is mandatory to use a broad-spectrum mineral sunscreen like the SAFESCREEN™ range during the daytime since this cream can make your skin photosensitive.
Night creams are meant to be used at night since they contain active ingredients that deeply penetrate the skin and make your skin photosensitive for a short period.
Also, nighttime is when your skin will be highly receptive to active ingredients since it is undisturbed by external agents like sunlight, pollution etc.
A night cream is used to rejuvenate your skin and treat specific skin concerns like acne, wrinkles, pigmentation etc.
For oily to combination skin, use a night cream that is light, non-greasy, that doesn’t clog your pores. For dry skin, use a nourishing cream with plant oils for deep hydration. Again, this depends on your climate and your specific skincare routine.
To reduce dandruff, choose shampoos that contain ingredients like Ketoconazole, Piroctone Olamine, Zinc Pyrithione etc. Some of the good anti-dandruff shampoos include Ducray Squanorm, Bioderma Node DS+ etc.
