Protecting the skin from the harsh rays of the sun should be part of your daily health regimen. Shielding the skin from harmful ultraviolet (UV) radiation prevents sunburn and permanent damage to the skin.
Sun damage to the skin usually begins at a young age because of the length of time spent sun bathing without adequate sunscreen protection. As we age, the negative effects become noticeable, evidenced by dry, leathery skin, and susceptibility to sunburns. And, the fact that the earth’s rapidly depleting ozone layer allows more of the UV radiation to reach us adds to the intensity of the problem.
There are two kinds of radiation – ultraviolet A (UVA) and ultraviolet B (UVB). UVA causes tanning, while UVB leads to sunburn. Both, over time, are factors in long-term skin damage. Skin contains melanocytes, cells in the body that produce melanin, the brown-black pigment in skin that acts as a shield from harmful solar radiation. But as we age, the melanocytes in our skin become less effective, so protecting ourselves from sun exposure is even more important.
Life Extension Sun Protection Spray is one of the most advanced sunblock formulas on the market. With a sun protection factor (SPF) of 30, this product provides maximum protection from the sun’s harmful rays, if used correctly.* It contains ingredients that can protect the skin against solar-generated free radicals, such as vitamin E to protect the skin against UVB radiation and DNA photo damage. Vitamin C, a powerful antioxidant, is added to fight oxidative damage. A natural moisturizer, NaPCA, is also part of the formula, to maintain the skin’s youthful softness.
For convenience, the Life Extension Sun Protection Spray comes in a 6-oz spray bottle. It can be sprayed on all skin surfaces, including hard-to-reach areas, like between the toes. Its non-greasy formula also makes it a pleasure to use, unlike other sunscreen products.
The bottom line is, to avoid premature aging and skin damage; the skin should be protected from the harmful effects of the sun on a daily basis. Besides wearing adequate clothing and broad-rimmed hats when exposed to the sun, a sunscreen product must also be a part of your arsenal.
Life Extension Sun Protection Spray provides maximum protection, while moisturizing and feeding your skin with nutrients.
