The sun is our biggest friend and foe when it comes to our skin. Professor Michael Holick of Boston University says in this article for sunfriend.com that ‘It is our main source of Vitamin D which is essential for absorbing calcium, keeping our bones healthy and for protection against chronic diseases later in life…” We need sunlight but we also need to have enough protection against it’s harmful effects. I happened to pass by one of Black Pearl Cosmetics stalls while out strolling. Searching for the perfect day cream, I found Black Pearl Royalty Light Day Cream with SPF 25 among their products. I was happy to find out that that it had the perfect amount of sun filter at SPF 25. It helps prevent the formation of new wrinkles. It also reduces the appearance of existing wrinkles by promoting elasticity.
I never considered getting a day cream that offered sun protection. I use to think that as long as the cream moisturized my skin, that was enough. Sadly, even if I took time to take care of my skin, I still found myself looking older and tired looking.
After reading an article in a magazine about the sun’s role in aging skin, I realized that the sun was to blame. I saw signs of wrinkles around my eyes and mouth and knew that I needed to start wearing sun protection. At first, I used a separate sun screen which ended up very costly. I had too many products on hand and my beauty routine got a little complicated. But I thank God I found Black Pearl Cosmetics day cream that came with sun protection which simplified my skin care ritual.
Exposure to UV light from the sun increases the risks for sunburn, wrinkling, leathering of skin, sagging, premature skin aging, skin damage, and skin cancer. To keep our skin looking young we need to filter out as much of the UV rays entering our atmosphere. According to the Skin Cancer Foundation, “up to 40 percent of the sun’s ultraviolet radiation reaches the earth on a completely cloudy day. This misperception often leads to the most serious sunburns. Because people spend all day outdoors with no protection from the sun.” This is why it is important to put on proper sun protection- even during Manila’s gloomy days!
SPF 25 FOR DAILY USE
We often think that the higher the SPF the better protected we are. SPF stands for Sun Protection Factor and is a measure of a product’s ability to prevent UV rays from damaging the skin. As studies have shown, SPF 15 and higher is enough for normal everyday activity. Black Pearl Royalty light Day Cream has an SPF of 25 which blocks 96% of the sun’s UV rays that come in contact with our skin. It is the perfect product for daily use!
