Are you seeking a way to protect your skin and improve overall health?

If so, it’s essential to wear sunscreen regularly. Unfortunately, some people only put on sunscreen when they know they will be spending all day outside, but it’s essential to wear sunscreen every day, rain or shine.

UV rays are outside whenever the sun is up, so you must protect your skin by wearing sunscreen daily.

When you go to the store, you will quickly realize that plenty of sunscreen options are available. So how do you make the right choice to meet your needs? In addition, you might be wondering how to choose a safe sunscreen or a good sunscreen for your face. Learn more below, and make sure that you protect your skin accordingly.

WHY IS IT IMPORTANT TO WEAR SUNSCREEN?

As you learn how to choose sunscreen, you might wonder why it’s necessary to wear it daily.

There are several reasons why it is so vital for you to wear sunscreen regularly.

  • It prevents your skin from getting sunburned. Sunburns can be incredibly painful, making it difficult to shower, sleep, or sit comfortably. To avoid sunburn, wear sunscreen regularly, especially when UV is high.
  • Sunscreen can reduce your chances of developing skin cancer down the road. However, even though it is unlikely that you will develop skin cancer immediately after sunburn, repeated burns can increase your chances of getting skin cancer later on.
  • Sunscreen will help with aging. If you spend a lot of time in the sun, particularly if you get a lot of sunburns, you could cause your overall skin health to deteriorate.
HOW DOES SUNSCREEN WORK?

As you try to figure out how to choose a safe sunscreen, you might be wondering, how does sunscreen work? Sunscreen works by preventing UVB and UVA rays from striking your skin, which could lead to severe damage. It is these ultraviolet rays, which have a tremendous amount of energy, that damage your skin.

If you do not wear sunscreen, these rays will strike your skin directly. The tremendous punch that they pack will cause DNA damage and inflammation. The combination of the two can lead to sunburn, and repeated damage can eventually lead to skin cancer. Sunscreen absorbs or reflects these UV rays, preventing them from damaging your skin.

WHAT ARE THE DIFFERENT TYPES OF SUNSCREEN?

If you are wondering how to choose a good sunscreen for your face, you must learn about the available sunscreen options. There are several choices for sunscreen, and you must make sure you pick the right sunscreen for your needs. The two types of sunscreen are chemical and mineral, and there are several differences you need to keep in mind when deciding between the two.

Chemical sunscreen

One of the most common options for sunscreen is chemical sunscreen. Chemical sunscreen is absorbed directly into the skin and acts like a sponge. It sits in the deeper layers of your skin, absorbs rays from the sun, converts those rays into heat, and then releases them away from the skin. That way, you don’t have to worry about UV rays damaging your skin.

One of the biggest benefits of using strong chemical sunscreen is that it does not take much to provide significant protection. This means that it might not take you as long to put on sunscreen, and you don’t necessarily have to refill your sunscreen supply as often. Chemical sunscreens are also typically lighter and won’t leave a white cast on your skin. They’re also more water-resistant.

However, there are a few drawbacks to note as well. Because chemical sunscreen sits in the deeper layers of the skin, it may not necessarily provide strong protection against all UV rays, such as those that concentrate on the surface. Furthermore, chemical sunscreen can also be irritating for people who have sensitive or acne-prone skin. Some forms of chemical sunscreen also contain ingredients that could be dangerous for some people, so it’s important to always read the ingredients before selecting a sunscreen to use.

Mineral sunscreen

Another option for sunscreen is a mineral sunscreen. Mineral sunscreen creates a literal barrier between your skin and the sun. Mineral sunscreen sits on top of your skin, acting as a blocker that will scatter UV rays away from your skin. Essentially, mineral sunscreen is like a mirror.

Because mineral sunscreen sits on top of your skin, it will protect against both UVA and UVB rays. This means that mineral sunscreen does a better job of blocking out all potential skin damage. It’s also better for sensitive and acne-prone skin because the ingredients are non-irritating.

While mineral sunscreen is very effective, there are also a few drawbacks. For example, mineral sunscreen has a white appearance on the skin, so even after you have applied it, it can still be visible. Furthermore, when someone rubs or scratches the skin, they run the risk of wiping away the sunscreen, which can leave them vulnerable to a burn.

Finally, it also wears off more quickly, so more mineral sunscreen has to be reapplied more often.

HOW DO YOU CHOOSE THE RIGHT SUNSCREEN?

So, how do you choose the right sunscreen? There are plenty of options available, but it’s important to choose a sunscreen that is right for your skin type and will provide you with the protection you are looking for. You should meet several requirements if you want your sunscreen to be as effective as possible.

These are qualities that make up a good sunscreen:

Has an SPF of at least 30

You should find a sunscreen with a very high sun protection factor, usually shortened to SPF. Ideally, you should select a sunscreen with an SPF of at least 30. The higher the SPF number, the more effective it should be at protecting your skin for a long time.

Is broad spectrum

You should also find a sunscreen that will protect against both UVA and UVB rays. This is called broad-spectrum sunscreen. Some sunscreen options only protect against UVA or UVB rays, but that might leave your skin vulnerable to still suffering a severe burn. Take a look at the container and ensure it provides protection against both categories of rays before you make a final decision.

Contains active ingredients

You should also find a sunscreen that contains active ingredients. You need to locate active ingredients because they will provide you with the best level of protection. Specifically, some of the ingredients you should look for include titanium dioxide and zinc oxide.

Is water-resistant

Of course, you should also find water-resistant sunscreen, especially if you’re spending the day swimming. But even if you don’t plan on r jumping in a pool, you will probably still do plenty of sweating, so you need to ensure your sunscreen is water-resistant.

THE RIGHT SUNSCREEN ALSO DEPENDS ON YOUR SKIN TYPE

You should also find a sunscreen that is compatible with your skin type. If you have sensitive skin, you might want to choose a sunscreen that doesn’t have any potential irritating or inflammatory agents. Specifically, chemical sunscreen might not be a good choice because it often contains irritating ingredients.

Or, if you have oily skin prone to acne, you may want to stay away from a sunscreen with a lot of oil in it. That way, you can prevent your skin from breaking out.

If you’re unsure which sunscreen is right for your skin type, do not hesitate to contact our office.

SkinRenew has many sunscreen options for any skin type.

HOW ELSE CAN YOU PROTECT YOUR SKIN FROM THE SUN?

There are plenty of other ways you can protect your skin from the sun in addition to wearing sunscreen every day. A few of these options include:

  • Wearing long clothing when you go outside. Even though it might make you hot, wearing long can provide extra protection against the sun.
  • Wearing a hat when you go outside. A hat can help you protect your face and neck from the sun.
  • Wearing sunglasses to protect your eyes from the sun as well. Protecting your eyes against UV rays may reduce your chances of developing cataracts.
  • Avoiding going outside during the middle of the day. The sun is most intense from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., so try to stay indoors.

If you follow these tips, you can protect your skin and your entire body from the sun.

TAKE THE RIGHT PRECAUTIONS WHEN YOU GO OUT IN THE SUN

You must take the right precautions when you go outside. Even though it may be nice to spend some time in the sun, you must make sure that you protect yourself accordingly. That means investing in high-quality, safe, reliable sun protection products. If you are looking for the best sunscreen in the industry, you should take a closer look at Colorescience.

SkinRenew has plenty of options available, and we can provide personalized recommendations for what sunscreen is best for your needs.

Wearing sunscreen regularly reduces wrinkles, keeps hyperpigmentation away, and reduces your chances of dealing with sunburn or developing skin cancer later in life.

Hyaluronic acid (HA) is a must-have skincare product because of its proven ability to hydrate the skin effectively. This humectant is a naturally occurring sugar molecule in the skin that binds to water, provides hydration, and helps “plump” up the skin giving it the look of “fullness” – think of a dewy, natural glow effect.

Although HA can be found naturally in almost every cell in the body, it is found in the most significant concentrations (nearly 50%) in the skin. It is found in the deep underlying dermis and the top layers of the epidermis. HA attracts and binds water to the skin. It keeps the skin looking smooth, youthful, and vibrant. Young skin is smooth and elastic and contains large amounts of HA. With age, the ability of the skin to produce HA decreases; furthermore, HA has a short “shelf-life” in the skin, naturally turning over or degrading within 24 hours; this time frame slows down with age resulting in skin that appears rough, dry, and flaky.

Why size matters when it comes to HA 

In addition to being an essential ingredient in topical skincare products, HA is also the critical ingredient in injectable fillers that Dermatologists, Plastic Surgeons, and other licensed medical professionals use to provide facial volume and smooth, deeper expression lines for their patients. 

An essential distinction between injectable and topical hyaluronic acids is size. The injectable hyaluronic acids vary in size but typically have a higher molecular weight (they can be enormous – 2 million Daltons or more!). Further, many HA fillers are “cross-linked” or joined together to enable longer-lasting volume in the skin, making them even more significant and only deliverable by injection.  

For the best outcomes with injectable fillers, injectors often reach for a combination of filler products to deliver different-sized HA to targeted areas of the skin (deep wrinkles versus superficial ones, for example). 

Anything over 500 Daltons is likely to sit on top of the skin if not intentionally delivered to its target. However, with targeted technologies, HA can be delivered topically to intended targets on the skin’s surface for supple, glowing, and resilient skin. 

And while topical skincare products will never be able to deliver the results of injectable procedures conducted by trained professionals, topicals can take inspiration from the multi-faceted approach, combining multiple sizes of HA to plump and hydrate the different layers of the skin. Pairing injectable HA with topical HA can produce beautiful, complimentary results for improved patient outcomes.  

Topical HA is suitable, well-tolerated, and beneficial for most skin types, not just aging skin.

Because our eyes are involved in so many facial expressions that we make daily, the delicate eye area is often one of the first places where women and men notice the signs of aging. 

If under-eye wrinkles are a concern for you, take a look at these skincare tips for a smoother and more youthful look.

When it comes to eye creams, you’ve got a lot of options. But that doesn’t mean that just any eye cream you choose will achieve the same skin-smoothing results as a more advanced formula. 

When selecting an eye cream, look for advanced anti-aging ingredients like peptides, antioxidants, caffeine, humectants, and moisturizers. 

You’ll find these ingredients in all of the SkinRenew eye creams. 

Daily Treatment with eye cream can help not only smooth away the appearance of eye-area wrinkles but also diminish the look of puffy or dark under-eye circles for a more alert and rejuvenated look.

The sun is the leading cause of visible signs of aging on the skin, so taking steps to protect your skin from the damaging effects of the sun’s UV rays is an excellent way to stave off the appearance of under-eye wrinkles other signs of aging.

Do this by wearing sunscreen every day, rain or shine, and adding a high-quality antioxidant serum to your daily skincare regimen.

SkinRenew carries many super antioxidant serums. 

Our antioxidant serums combine different ingredients for the most comprehensive and dynamic protection against environmental stressors like the sun’s UV rays, air pollution, pesticides, and cigarette smoke.

Smoking has been shown to significantly speed up the aging process of the body and skin, so kicking this habit can profoundly affect your complexion down the road. 

No matter how long you’ve been smoking, quitting now can have fantastic effects on your skin’s appearance and overall health and wellness.

TRY A HYDRATING EYE MASK

Face masks are fantastic anti-aging solutions. So, if you’re struggling with eye-area wrinkles, you might want to schedule a professional facial treatment with a mask.  

Look for products or treatments to hydrate and calm the skin under and around your eyes without causing irritation or dryness. If you’re considering a professional facial, SkinRenew has your custom treatment solution. 

Beauty sleep is, in fact, a natural, scientifically-proven phenomenon. While you sleep, your skin has a chance to restore and rejuvenate itself, so if you’re not getting enough good quality sleep, chances are, you’ll wake up with puffy, tired-looking eyes. 

If you have trouble falling asleep or staying asleep, try turning down the temperature in your bedroom and putting your cell phone and other screens away. 

According to the National Sleep Foundation, technology that makes its way into the bedroom at night is one of the top reasons why many Americans aren’t getting the sleep they need to function optimally.

To boost your skin while you sleep, apply an overnight cream. 

THE BOTTOM LINE

Under-eye wrinkles don’t have to be permanent fixtures on your skin. Instead, look for the most advanced anti-aging ingredients and make a few minor lifestyle adjustments to achieve your desired smoother, brighter, and more youthful look.

SkinRenew’s eye creams are affordable, medical-grade, and completely transform the under-eye area.


Dark Spots? Meet the Big 6 Superstars for Taking on Hyperpigmentation (and Winning)

Dark spots, brown spots, age spots, and melasma. No matter the name, Hyperpigmentation is one of the most frustrating and stubborn conditions to treat, and its causes are almost infinite—think everything from inflammation to scarring. 

Sure, Hyperpigmentation is harmless—and maybe you’ve embraced it as less of a bother and more of a cluster of freckles. But for others, dark spots on the face can be annoying. 

At SkinRenew, we dive into all things Hyperpigmentation, from causes to clinically proven dark spot correctors and removers that help fade dark spots and prevent them from returning.

What Is Hyperpigmentation and What Causes it?  

Melanin is what gives skin its beautifully diverse colors. But when melanin is overstimulated, it floods the skin’s surface and shows patches, spots, and clumps of color darker than our natural skin tone.

In addition to UV exposure from the sun, The American Academy of Dermatology (AAD) says dark spots can appear when a pimple clears, a wound heals (post-inflammatory Hyperpigmentation), you take (or apply) certain medications, a skin or hair care product irritates your skin, or hormonal changes occur, such as during pregnancy or when taking oral contraceptives (also known as melasma, or the mask of pregnancy).

What Are Some Real, Proven Ingredients for Treating Hyperpigmentation?

All skin types, from the lightest to the darkest, can experience Hyperpigmentation. However, it typically presents itself differently across different skin tones because this is one of the top skin concerns treated by dermatologists; extensive scientific ingredient research has been done to help people answer the question of how to get rid of dark spots on the face, arms, and body.

These are the top 6 ingredients that have been put to the test and come out on top when treating Hyperpigmentation.

  1. Tranexamic Acid

Acids are so often indicators of exfoliation. But applying the word “acid” to all ingredients would be remiss. Case in point: Tranexamic Acid, which is an amino acid (the proteins that are often called the “building blocks of life”). While the FDA approved Tranexamic Acid to treat patients with hemophilia or excessive bleeding, it’s significantly impacting the world of dermatology for successfully fading dark spots, melasma, post-inflammatory Hyperpigmentation, and other pigment disorders.

Tranexamic Acid for the skin works by blocking the biological process that ends in dark spots and Hyperpigmentation. And, unlike its prescription counterparts (think Hydroquinone), Tranexamic Acid for skin is gentler yet effective, can be used indefinitely, partners with other skin-brightening all-stars like Vitamin C and Kojic Acid, and is considered safe for use during pregnancy (of course, you should always speak to your doctor before trying any new skincare ingredient).

  1. Kojic Acid

There’s some serious buzz surrounding this trending fermentation-based skincare, but it’s been around longer than you may think. Kojic Acid is a fungus, a byproduct of fermentation, and an inhibitor of tyrosine (which produces melanin). By inhibiting melanin production, Kojic Acid minimizes the intensity of dark spots and Hyperpigmentation and prevents them from returning. 

  1. Niacinamide

Thanks to its multi-hyphenate benefits, Niacinamide is becoming the next best thing since Retinol. This ingredient does everything from reducing inflammation and fortifying the skin’s barrier to putting excess oiliness in check and treating Hyperpigmentation.

Antioxidant Niacinamide prevents the oxidation that can break down collagen. It also helps boost the skin’s barrier to make it a more significant weapon against environmental stressors that take their toll on the skin. Studies show that it can inhibit the process that leads to dark spots and Hyperpigmentation. And that’s why it’s topping the list of our best treatments for fading dark spots. 

  1. THD, the Next-Gen Vitamin C

Allow us to introduce the next best Vitamin C for the skin. THD, or Tetrahexyldecyl Ascorbate, is the more bioavailable, more stable (meaning less likely to break down and lose efficacy), and more effective form of L-Ascorbic Acid (aka, standard Vitamin C).

What does that mean, exactly? Vitamin C is a bright skin powerhouse. Unfortunately, it’s also susceptible and reactive, meaning it will likely lose its brightening juice when exposed to air (oxidation) or formulated/mixed with other ingredients (especially water). That means little-to-no results for your skin.

In clinical studies, Tetrahexyldecyl Ascorbate has been shown to increase collagen synthesis, provide better antioxidant protection, and protect against blue light damage than traditional L-Ascorbic Acid. All those benefits add up to a more radiant appearance. And it’s oil-soluble, which is another way of saying the skin’s oils can’t block it from seeping deep into the skin. That gives it a higher penetration rate than regular Vitamin C.

When choosing the best Vitamin C for the skin, THD was the only option for our Vitamin C Brightening Concentrate, containing clinical strength 10% Tetrahexyldecyl Ascorbate in a super-stable, waterless formula and airless pump to prevent oxidation and maximize dark spot treatment with every use.

  1. Lactic Acid

Trying to choose an exfoliant? Make Lactic Acid your new holy grail. This chemical exfoliant (versus a physical exfoliant, like a scrub) is a part exfoliant, part hydrator, and all-around a gentler alternative to a beta hydroxy acid like Salicylic Acid and alpha hydroxy acids like glycolic Acid. Why? Because it’s water-soluble but not oil-soluble: while it can cut through the skin’s natural hydration layers to provide essential cell sloughing, it can’t cut through its natural oils. This delivers less aggressive yet still powerful exfoliation while clearing the way for brightening treatments.

  1. SPF

Despite all the shiny new treatments for dark spots and Hyperpigmentation, don’t gloss over tried-and-true SPF. After all, the best treatment for a dark spot is to never have one in the first place, and SPF is your preventative step against Hyperpigmentation made worse by UV light.

You can apply Kojic Acid, Tranexamic Acid, Niacinamide, and Vitamin C to no end, but if you’re not shielding your skin against UV rays, dark spots will stay put because UV rays trigger and can even bring back dark spots. A double-pronged approach of treatment ingredients combined with daily use of SPF (yes, even on cloudy days or work-from-home days) will deliver a more effective treatment result against Hyperpigmentation.  

Choosing Your Effective Dark Spot Fighter Just Got Easier

Suppose you’re looking for a one-and-done dark spot treatment packed with all the ingredients to wipe out dark spots. We recommend our NEW VI Derm Dark Spot Lifting Serum with a triple-threat pigment-busting blend of TRI-ER8ASE™ Acid Complex—5% Tranexamic Acid, Kojic Acid, and Lactic Acid—plus Niacinamide. Best of all, these ingredients complement each other to create a prominent dark spot-fading solution. Here’s how:

  • Tranexamic Acid: At a therapeutic, proven-to-work level of 5%, this ingredient helps fade away the most stubborn pigmentation
  • Kojic Acid: Suppresses excessive melanin production, preventing future dark spots and pigmentation from forming
  • Lactic Acid: Gently yet effectively stimulates exfoliation and breaks down the skin’s barrier so brightening ingredients can penetrate deeper
  • Niacinamide: Reduces the transfer of melanocytes (cells that cause pigmentation) to prevent future pigmentation while hydrating and providing skin barrier protection.
