The sun is your skin's worst enemy. Yes, it can give your skin that beautiful tan and glow, but if you spend too much time in the sun and fail to protect it from UV rays, you can severely damage your skin and significantly increase your risk of skin cancer. Luckily, there are products out there that allow you to enjoy the heat of the sun, while at the same time protecting your skin from damage. One of the best products for skin protection is called Obagi Nu-Derm Sun Shield SPF 50. Let's take a closer look at this product and why it is a good option for sun protection.
What is Obagi Nu-Derm Sun Shield SPF 50?
Nu-Derm Sun Shield SPF 50 combines UVA blockage and UVB absorption for protection against harmful UV rays caused by over exposure to the sun. This product contains a variety of active ingredients including zinc oxide (10.5%) and oxtinoxate (7.5%) that work to protect your skin, while at the same time allowing you to soak up the positive effects of the sun and obtaining a beautifully natural "sun-kissed" glow.
The Obagi Nu-Derm Sun Shield product can be purchased individually, but is also available within the Nu-Derm system. If you are using the Nu-Derm system, your skin may become ultra-sensitive to the sun. As such, it is very important that you do not skip this step and that you use Sun Shield every day to protect your skin against sun damage.
What does Obagi Nu-Derm Sun Shield SPF 50 do for your skin?
Throughout our lives, we are exposed to a variety of negative influences that can cause damage to our skin. Things like hormonal changes, stress, and environmental pollution can all cause skin damage. But even more dangerous than all of these things is regular exposure to the sun. Over-exposure to the sun can lead to damaging consequences such as skin diseases and, yes, premature aging. Obagi Nu-Derm's Sun Shield helps to protect your skin against the sun, while at the same time targeting your skin at the cellular level to reduce the effects of aging and photo-damage.
How does Obagi Nu-Derm Sun Shield SPF 50 work?
When your skin is exposed to UVA and UVB rays (and as it undergoes the natural aging process), the turnover of skin cells begins to significantly slow down. When this happens, old and damaged skin cells are no longer easily replaced by new, healthy ones. As a result, our skin begins to age. In addition, aging can cause the collagen and elastin within our skin to break down, quickly resulting in wrinkles, fine lines, and sagging. And while this aging process is inevitable, exposure to the sun without proper protection can accelerate the process, causing your skin to age before it's time.
When you wear Obagi Nu-Derm sun shield SPF 50, it can help you to:
• Reduce the appearance of age spots
• Decrease the production of wrinkles and fine lines
• Smooth rough skin
• Reduce redness
• Improve complexion
• Reduce signs of hyper-pigmentation
• Protect against sun damage
