Do I really need to wear sunscreen everyday?

Wearing sunscreen every single day isn't just a TikTok trend. You may roll your eyes and sigh each time you see a daily SPF reminder… but it’s a golden rule for good reason.

Do I need to wear sunscreen indoors?

Yes! While indoors at the office, at home, in a shop, or in a restaurant, you may think you are fully protected from the sun, but this is not the case! UVB rays, the primary sunburn ray, are largely blocked by glass; but more than 50% of UVA rays, the main cause of premature skin aging, can penetrate glass.

The side and rear windows of your car typically do not filter out UVA rays, nor do clouds or fog on rainy days. At the nail salon, most dry lamps emit UV radiation (predominantly UVA) – which is also why you should always wear SPF on your hands, one of the most common areas for premature signs of aging.

Why is UVA protection so important?

UVA rays contribute to premature aging, and they are responsible for destruction of healthy collagen and elastin. In addition to preventing burning, it is essential to have high sun protection if you are serious about your anti-aging strategy. UVA rays can penetrate 40 times deeper than UVB rays can, causing long-term damage that you might not even notice at the surface until later. The key to anti-aging is prevention.


 

What should I look for in an anti-aging sunscreen?

We recommend looking for an SPF with a PA rating or Protection Grade of UVA rays. It's a rating system created in Japan to indicate the level of protection from UVA rays. The more plus signs next to PA, the higher the protection (the maximum is 4++++). The Odacité SPF 50 Sheer Sunscreen Mineral Drops has a PA++++ rating in order to offer the strongest protection against the long-term aging effects of UVA, such as free radical damage, fine lines, hyperpigmentation and wrinkles. Not to mention,it also protects the skin from blue light to help reduce the risk of oxidative stress from our daily hours of screen time.
