Solar, why not settle for screens or filters

It is now a habit for many to choose vacation spots surrounded by nature and often with strong atmospheric factors: sun from equatorial areas, reflections from glaciers, sand from the desert. UV rays are one of the extremely powerful components of sunlight and responsible not only for our tans, but also for numerous skin damages. For example, when you are at sea, the strength of the UV rays is maximum near the surface of the water and decreases as you move deeper. Being immersed in water must not give us the false security of being protected: in fact, water absorbs infrared radiation (the hot ones), but has a lesser effect on UV radiation. Indeed, the reflection of the rays on the surface can increase exposure to radiation itself, which is why sunbathing on the shore, near the water, allows you to tan more than sunbathing away from the shore. Furthermore, like water, sand also has the great ability to reflect radiation. Even the mountains have now become an increasingly popular destination for summer holidays. In fact, in the mountains, UV rays are much stronger and reach our skin in greater quantities. In addition to the sun, the action of the wind and cold can scratch our skin, creating redness and cracks. But what exactly happens to our skin if it is not adequately protected? In the first place there is a loss of elasticity as in the long run the sun causes the degeneration of elastin and collagen, the two proteins that give support and elasticity to the skin. So the much hated wrinkles become more and more visible. So what's our advice? Our advice is that a good sun line cannot be limited to filters and screens to protect the skin from UV rays, because skin asks for more regardless of its type (light, olive or dark). So the imperative is to choose sunscreen emulsions rich in active ingredients to "quench and nourish" the skin and always use high protection at the first exposures, not forgetting to apply after-sun at the end of the day.

Anti-aging Staminalis sunscreens: Beyond protection

The Staminalis laboratories have formulated a line of sunscreens that respond to the desires, lifestyle and needs of skin subject to sun exposure in all circumstances. Designed to give intense hydration, a marked anti-aging action and a homogeneous tan . Formulated with precise innovative strategies and top quality active ingredients: 

– The Buddleja davidii plant stem extract capable of counteracting free radicals by preventing damage from photoaging

– Specific ingredients such as the extraordinary SOD (Superoxide Dismutase) enzyme and vitamin E (Tocopherol) with antioxidant and moisturizing activity. At the same time they carry out a marked anti-aging action. In particular, the SOD enzyme is an enzymatic antioxidant capable of blocking the "superoxide" radical which is activated by UV rays, protecting right down to the heart of the cells. 

– A precious mix of phytoceutical extracts such as wheat germ oil and betaine with a moisturizing and restorative action. 

Staminalis sunscreens are free from mineral oils, petrolatum, parabens and 'nano' filters . They carry out the primary task of filtering UV rays and draw from the world of biochemistry the most effective molecules to carry out an antioxidant and protective action on the epidermis. Furthermore, sun exposure tends to dehydrate the skin, which is why it is advisable to use after-sun products rich in moisturizing ingredients that serve to soften the skin, restore the skin barrier and restore the substances lost during bathing or sporting activities.

Not all after-sun products are the same: the first big difference is in the quality of the ingredients and in the functions exercised by the product , which can be simple when they are limited to hydration or a slight soothing action, or perform an important activity such as anti-aging . Staminalis- After Sun Emulsion is an anti-aging face/body emulsion that fixes the tan, regenerates, hydrates, nourishes, refreshes and calms redness, leaving an immediate feeling of relief.
