The skincare ingredient you need to use this summer

The sun, in the just the right amount, is essential for health and wellbeing, but its harmful UVA and UVB rays are also the number one culprit when it comes to premature skin ageing. A sun-kissed tan might look like a good idea in your youthful years, but the ageing effects of sun exposure often take years to appear. Repeated exposure causes changes in skin tone and texture, resulting in skin sagging and wrinkle formation over time.

And while there are an endless plethora of skincare formulations you can slather on your skin to try and keep that youthful glow, in the ever-changing world of beauty, there’s one unwavering rule to live by: prevention is always better than a cure, especially where skin ageing is concerned. Thankfully the one ingredient that everyone needs in their routine to prevent skin damage and prevent premature ageing isn’t hard to get your hands on and won’t cost a small fortune. Deciphering sunscreen can be a little tricky, but formulations with¬†zinc oxide covers all bases. Unlike other sunscreen ingredients, zinc oxide acts as¬†a physical blocker, giving skin broad-spectrum protection against by UVA and UVB rays.
