Reinforce your anti-aging efforts with La Roche-Posay sunscreen

No anti-aging skincare routine is complete without a broad-spectrum sunscreen. Broad-spectrum sun protection is essential because it protects against UVA rays that contribute to visible signs of aging over time, as well as UVB rays that cause sunburn.

Consider these facts, which were presented by Dr. Jean Carruthers at the 2023 American Society for Laser Medicine and Surgery (ASLMS) meeting: According to Dr. Carruthers, 68% of North Americans use anti-aging skincare products, yet only 12% use sunscreen daily. Since 90% of visible skin aging can be attributed to accumulated sun exposure over the course of a lifetime, it’s clear that a lot of people aren’t making this connection.

To reinforce these facts, Dr. Carruthers shared that facelift results can last for as little as six months, and as long as 10 years. Patients with the most short-lived results are those whose skin collagen and elastic are weakened due to spending too much time in the sun.

Whether you’re looking for a sunscreen for every day or beach days, La Roche-Posay’s Anthelios range of advanced broad-spectrum sunscreens includes options for all skin types, tones and concerns—plus antioxidants to help protect against skin-damaging free radicals. 

To make it even easier to select the best sun protection for your skin’s needs, La Roche-Posay’s sunscreens are color coded. Blue SPF logos indicate products that are formulated for daily use, while orange SPF logos show that a product is effective for prolonged sun exposure. (However there are a few exceptions, so keep reading!)

Daily sun protection

Sun protection is essential 365 days a year, but it’s wise to up the SPF ante for summer. Once you commit to finishing your morning skincare routine with an Anthelios broad-spectrum sunscreen, you can rest assured that you’re providing your skin with the UVA/UVB and antioxidant protection necessary for maintaining your skin’s health (and appearance), and getting extra skincare benefits while you’re at it.
