Just stepping out till the neighborhood café? Only going to be out in the sun till you enter your car? Enjoying drinking your morning tea by the window? Ever think about how even two minutes in the sun can damage your skin? Spots, wrinkles, uneven skin tone and tanning can all
start with just two minutes in the sun.
UV Radiation from the sun is the chief cause of Sunburn, and other severe skin concerns like
melanoma, melasma and photoaging. UVB rays cause sun burn, which can be tackled by use of sunscreen (SPF content). UVA rays on the other hand are more damaging biologically. It can cause not just tanning, but wrinkling & leathering (photo aging), pigmentation and premature skin aging. To prevent this, you need a product with a good PA content.
Keeping both these concerns in mind, Lakmé offers a break-through innovation in sun care that is dermatologist-approved. The new Lakmé Sun Expert Cucumber & Lemongrass Fairness Sunscreen range offers broad spectrum sunscreen that gives you 97% protection from harmful effects of the sun. The sunscreens range from SPF 20 to SPF 50 and PA+, PA++ and PA+++ includes specific sunscreens for dry, oily and normal skin. Lakmé has also introduced Sun Expert Fairness Body Sunscreen Lotion with SPF 24 PA ++.
The new Lakmé Fairness Sunscreen Cucumber & Lemon Grass After Sun range offers a Skin Lightening Gel, Skin Lightening Mask, and Skin Lightening Face wash.
Dr.Wadhwani, Cosmetologist says “Exposure to the sun plays a pivotal role in causing age spots, sun-spots, wrinkles, changes in skin texture and skin cancers due to the harmful UV rays of the sun. UVA and UVB rays are harmful rays, both cause severe sun damage. While UVA rays penetrate more deeply into the skin and play a great role in premature ageing, it is also responsible for causing skin cancers. Therefore in addition to protecting your skin from the effects of UVB rays which pre-dominantly cause sun tan and sun burns it is highly recommended to look for a sunscreen which offers UVA protection as well.”
Dr Wadhwani goes on to share her views about new Lakmé Fairness Sunscreen range, “The Lakmé Sun Expert is a broad spectrum sunscreen that protects the skin from both UVA and UVB Rays that give upto 97% protection from sun damage. It also contains protective vitamins and rich anti oxidants such as cucumber and lemongrass, to heal and repair sun damage. Both cucumber and lemongrass act as cooling agents to the skin- and heal the inflammation post sun damage and provide a calming effect to the skin.”
