Chronos Day Care and Sun Protection
The main cause of premature skin ageing is improper exposure to the sun. It is estimated that 90% of visible signs of skin ageing are the result of insufficient protection from the sun's rays.
With the sunny weather here again, we want to make the most of the sun's rays and replenish our vitamin D, but not at any cost. It's important to take care of your skin and prevent the signs of ageing.
That's why Natura Brasil offers you a range of facial care products to hydrate and protect your skin. Natura Brasil's Chronos day time moisturisers include a specific antioxidant complex developed by Natura Brasil. Made with Green Tea, Cocoa and Vitamin E extracts, as well as SPF 30 and UVA-PF 10 sun protection, Natura Brasil day time facial care protects your skin from the action of free radicals, which is one of the main causes of premature skin ageing.
Protecting your skin, but from what?
Our skin is exposed to the risks of UV rays all year round, regardless of the "weather" or the time of day...
Several types of UV rays attack our skin, the most harmful are UVA and UVB.
What's the difference?
UVA are the most dangerous rays, they make up 95% of the UV rays that reach us.
We need to be very wary of them because they pass through clouds and windows (of buildings and vehicles) and are completely painless. They reach the deepest layers of the epidermis, and over the long term, UVA rays destroy collagen and elastin fibres leading to sagging and loss of skin firmness and the appearance of wrinkles, sun allergies, spots and they can also contribute to the development of skin cancers.
UVB rays account for only 5% of the UV rays that reach us.
Unlike UVA, they are stopped by clouds and glass but still penetrate our skin when we are outdoors. They are what causes tanning, but also sunburn, allergic reactions and skin cancer. For all these reasons it is important to protect yourself from both UVA and UVB rays throughout the year, whatever the time of day or level of cloud cover.
All Chronos day time facial care products treat the signs of ageing and protect the skin from daily aggressions that accelerate the ageing process such as wind, pollution and the sun! They contain SPF 30 and UVA-PF 10 sun protection to protect your skin from UVA and UVB rays.
Natura Brasil tips
It's crucial to protect your skin from UVA and UVB rays every day.
Don't forget to check the level of protection provided by your skin care products. The SPF (Solar Protection Factor) indicates the level of protection from UVB rays and the UVA-PF indicates the level of protection from UVA rays. Beware of cloud cover, deceptive temperatures, wind and your surroundings.
We often have false impressions about the intensity of the sun. Watch out for reverberation, where the sun is even more dangerous at the seaside or when skiing, due to the ground reflecting the sun. And enjoy your day with confidence: while the sun is something our skin should be wary of, it's also an indispensable factor in our well-being, both psychologically, because it promotes the secretion of endorphins, or happy hormones, as well as a host of other hormones essential to our survival, and because of its effect on plant photosynthesis and the climate! Without sun, no life on Earth is possible, so we should enjoy it as much as possible, while protecting our skin properly!
