  • Sharebar

If you want to prevent Sunburn Skin Cancer, diligence can be the difference between life and death. When it comes to sun protection, you should start with your cosmetics. There are makeup ingredients that you should be aware of that can be lifesavers if used daily. They can effectively protect your skin from harmful UVA and UVB rays that attack your skin each time you go outside.

Take a quick look in your makeup bag next time you step into your bathroom. If you do not have the packaging for your makeup anymore, make a list and take it with you to the store. There you can examine the ingredients on your makeup to make sure you are protecting yourself from the dangers of skin cancer. There are certain ingredients and keywords that will let you know that a beauty product is working to keep you healthy as well as enhance your look. You should make sure that your lip gloss, foundation and lotion contain these key ingredients.

Here are the secret ingredients to look for if you want to make sure that your cosmetics are going to actively help you prevent sunburn skin cancer:

* Zinc and Zinc oxide These minerals are found in sunscreen. They also are part of mineral makeup. Mineral makeup foundations may have a natural SPF 15 or higher. Check packaging for product specific information.

* Check for titanium dioxide. Titanium dioxide is also a part of many types of mineral makeup. It creates a physical barrier between your skin and the sun. If your makeup products contain titanium dioxide they can often double as sun protection.

* Mica Mica flakes are also common in mineral makeup. Mica flakes also have the ability to block some rays of the sun from hitting your skin. In addition, mica is a great way to camouflage wrinkles because it reflects light out of wrinkles, minimizing and hiding them.

If possible, you should also get a verified SPF number on your makeup products. Work with your dermatologist to decide how much – if any – more sun protection you need. You will best avoid sunburn skin cancer by incorporating sun defense into your beauty routine. That way you will habitually protect yourself as part of your daily cosmetic routine.
