Caring about looks and beauty has become important in our daily life men and women both are prone to be more caring about their looks, beauty and even their skin tone. But even a small patch or pimple will make us depressed, makes us to do all necessary steps to remove it and prevent it from happening so when its melasma everyone never would like to get affected but our lifestyle is not helping us in any way most of us have melasma patches in their body.
No worries there are treatments and remedies that you can treat and cure your melasma but being under the treatment and doing things that would extinguish its effects of cure is going get you tired and depressed of trying things to cure melasma. Exposing your skin in sun when you are under melasma treatment for your skin is going to give you nil effect in curing your melasma as exposure to sun will just trigger your melanin producing cells to produce more and create more patches or darken them.
Sunscreen lotions are the best way to protect yourself from the UV rays and its types of ray there are mainly three types of UV rays they are; UVA, UVB and UVC amongst this UVA and UVB are the types of rays that affect you and to protect your skin from them sunscreen lotions are the best weapon.
Select your Sunscreen wisely:
Selecting sunscreen is important when you have decided to go for sunscreens and the one factor you must take a note of when selecting your sunscreen is PPD-Persistent Pigment Darkening factor and it can be determined with the SPF value that’s mentioned in the labels of the sunscreen lotion. Be sure that has something that says protection for UVA rays in the description as it is the cause for tanning and darkening of the skin.
There are two different types of sunscreen lotion they are namely;
- Chemical Sunscreens and
- Physical Sunscreens
Chemical sunscreens VS Physical sunscreens:
Chemical sunscreen the name says it all, it’s a sunscreen that is made of chemical ingredient combination and they work by absorbing the sun rays. Chemical sunscreens have some risk factors as well as they have a probability to trigger pigmentation in skin and might affect the melasma cure.
Physical sunscreensare otherwise named as mineral based sunblock as the working of physical sunscreens is that it reflects the sun rays and it is said to protect skin from both UVA and UVB rays that makes it the first to rise in our mind to buy to protect our skin from melasma and help in curing melasma. Physical sunscreen ingredients are Zinc Oxide and/or Titanium Dioxide.
Compared to the chemical combinations in the chemical sunscreen the physical sunscreens are better in the protection of our skin from the sun rays. I highly would recommend anyone deciding to buy a Sunscreen for Melasma to go for physical sunscreen lotions as they have less risk factors and high advantages.
