Summertime in Guam is all year long. With that being said, beaches are a must, and fun in the sun is a necessity. The Vitamin D given off from the sun is a vital part of wellness and health. However, there are also some very harmful UVA and UVB rays that also speed up the process of photoaging, and promote the development of serious skin conditions, such as melanoma.

The sun’s harmful rays contribute to almost 85% percent of visible external aging, creating saggy skin, wrinkles, and fine lines.

The best way to combat the downsides of sun exposure is to gear up with an effective sunscreen. Wearing a sunscreen can not only help you look younger, longer, but also provide vital protection from the harmful sun rays from a medical perspective. For the skincare conscious, however, it can be hard to find the perfect product to target the protection and practicality aspects of a sunscreen.  A Chandan Spa favorite, and best selling product at our spa is the IMAGE Skincare Prevention + SPF 50 Daily ultimate moisturizer. This sunscreen not only provides the ultimate in sun protection, but also contains a revolutionary formulation of Zinc Oxide (active ingredient in most sun protection products) that glides so easy over the skin, and is absorbed so smoothly, unlike the typical sunscreen formulation. Aside from the advanced sun protection technology, Prevention SPF 50 also contains antioxidants, stem cells, and botanical UVB boosters that aide in protecting the skin at the cellular development layer, promoting healthy cell turnover, leading to healthier looking skin. IMAGE Skincare SPF 50 can also be used as a standalone moisturizer. In addition, IMAGE Skincare SPF 50 works perfectly as a personal favorite as a long lasting makeup primer, providing long lasting wear and a smooth application. When selecting a sunscreen, also look for Broad Spectrum sun protection. This means that your sunscreen is acting as a shield from all of the sun’s harmful sun rays (both UVA and UVB), and IMAGE Skincare SPF 50 does just that. Also available from the IMAGE Skincare is the Prevention + SPF 45, with comes in a convenient spray bottle for easy application on both body and face.

Although the sun has its health benefits, over exposure can be very detrimental to your skin health. Wearing a sunscreen regularly can not only help you look younger, but provide medical benefits as well. In addition to skin protection, make sure you are using the right skincare products to maintain the look and elasticity of your skin.
