What is Non-Nano Zinc Oxide Sunscreen?

The sun can have a powerful effect on your skin. That’s why it’s vital to protect your skin on a daily basis with the right sunscreen. Not all sunscreens are created equal though. It’s important to find ones that are natural, effective, and contain the right beneficial ingredients to best protect your skin. 

Are you familiar with the benefits of non-nano sunscreen? This is just one of the best ways to protect your skin now and for the future. You skin’s health and aging gracefully depends on it. Trust us. If you aren’t using a non-nano sunscreen yet, now is the time to look into wearing one. Let’s look at exactly what Non-Nano Zinc Oxide Sunscreen is, and why this innovation should be the type of sunscreen you wear every day. 

What is Non-Nano Zinc Oxide Sunscreen? 

In order to understand what “non-nano” means, as it relates to zinc oxide sunscreen, let’s break it down. One of the active ingredients in mineral sunscreen is zinc oxide. It’s a powdered mineral that sits on top of the skin which acts as a physical sunblock. Learn more about Sunblock vs Sunscreen: What's the Difference and Which is Better?

Zinc oxide protects against both the UVA and UVB rays of the sun. By making the ingredients “non-nano” it means that the particles aren’t small enough to penetrate the skin. This is considered safer for your body.

Is Non-Nano Zinc Oxide Sunscreen Safe?

It’s a safe and healthy type of sunblock because the non-nano particles aren’t going to be absorbed by your skin and possibly go into your bloodstream. Regular nano particles do have the potential to enter the bloodstream, so that’s why it’s an important distinction for your sunscreen to be labeled “non-nano.” 

Sometimes nano particles also have the potential to be taken into the lungs when you breathe and those particles are airborne. This usually relates to cosmetic products that come in a spray container delivery system. Non-nano particle ingredients in beauty products are better for your health and wellness in the long run. 

Another possible key active ingredient in physical sunscreen is titanium dioxide. This ingredient is also safe and gentle as part of natural mineral based sunscreens.

The Benefits of the Right Sunscreen for Your Skin

There are countless benefits to wearing the right sunscreen. Using sunscreen can prevent premature aging in the skin. The sun can significantly increase your chances of getting fine lines and wrinkles, age spots, and can make the skin look less than radiant. The sun damage your skin receives can also break down the collagen leading to loss of structure. That causes sagging and a breakdown of volume in the skin. Those are just some of the problems that result from unprotected sun exposure over time.  

There’s also more bad news about unprotected sun exposure. How about the very real chance of developing certain types of skin cancers with repeated sun exposure? You don’t want to take the chance. Protecting your skin with the right sunscreen can definitely guard against melanoma developing in the skin. Learn more about the 3 Types of Skin Cancer and How to Prevent Sun Damage.

Even on a daily basis with incidental sun exposure, that’s the type you get from just briefly being out in the sun, you need sunscreen protection. Think of it in just a few minutes when you go from the house to your car, for example, it’s vital to wear the right sunblock. Those few minutes in the sun each day can add up to damage for your skin when you don’t have a physical sunscreen as part of your skincare routine. It’s just as important, if not more so, than your cleanser, moisturizer, and any skincare treatments you use. Your healthy skin depends on it. 

Why a Physical Sunscreen is Vital Year Round

No matter where you live, sunscreen protection is vital year round. Even when it’s cold out in the winter, the sun is still there. On cloudy days too, its powerful rays can penetrate that cloud cover and affect your skin making it burn easier. Even if you don’t see an actual sunburn on your skin, the damage is adding up. That’s why wearing sunscreen year round is important for the health of your skin. 

Some Anti-Aging Treatments Make Your Skin More Sun Sensitive

There are also some skincare products and treatments that may make your skin more sun sensitive. That’s why it’s also necessary to wear sunscreen each day. For example, our Sdara Skincare Vitamin C Serum, which is geared towards giving you more radiant and brighter skin, is one of those products. Vitamin C is going to brighten and fade age or sun spots, so it’s important to pair this product with a daily sunscreen in order to prevent more damage from occurring. The Vitamin C can make your skin more sensitive to getting sunburned. All you have to do is wear a daily sunscreen to prevent this issue from happening. It’s just that easy.
