When it comes to protecting yourself from the sun's rays, it's no joke: it's not just about avoiding spots and aging, but about true skin health. We've become accustomed to hearing how important it is to wear SPF daily: from dermatologists to the modern "TikTok and Instagram school" (always be cautious of the quality of advice found online and on social media), reminders surround us, leaving us with no excuses! Indeed, sunscreen is one of the most effective anti-aging products: sun filters protect the skin from the harmful effects of the sun, creating a barrier against UVA and UVB rays, but above all, counteracting free radicals, the main cause of skin aging. By slowing down skin oxidation processes, SPF is the first "fountain of youth", which is why it's important to choose one suitable for our skin, comfortable to wear every day.

At 50 ml, you will find a wide selection of body sunscreensfaceafter sun, sun oils, sun sticks, and specific products for lip and sensitive area protection: use the product filters available on the website to find the solution that best suits you!


SPF: Useful information on choosing the right sunscreen for you!

Here are some things to keep in mind:

  • Sunscreens shouldn't bother us. Let's dispel the myth that SPF should always be heavy, pasty, and sticky: the evolution of cosmetics has allowed for lightweight and comfortable formulations that adhere to the skin without leaving white streaks or residues. Find the sunscreen that best suits your skin and don't give in to discomfort!
  • There are two types of sun filters: physical and chemical. The former contains zinc oxide and titanium dioxide and are ideal for sensitive or inflamed skin, while the latter contains synthetic ingredients such as oxybenzone, octinoxate, octisalate, and avobenzone, recommended for those with melasma or hyperpigmentation.
  • Pay attention to the "water-resistant" label. "Water-resistant" does not mean waterproof: on average, sunscreens last from 40 to 80 minutes after swimming or sweating. It is therefore advisable to reapply your sunscreen every 2 or 3 hours and after any contact with water or physical activity.
  • There are cases where sunscreen cannot be debated: after exfoliation, when you have developed a sunspot, every time you are using an ingredient that activates upon exposure to sunlight.


Sunscreens for skin type

  • Oily skin sunscreen. Choose sunscreens with a lightweight and mattifying texture. Avoid overly thick creams or those enriched with oily ingredients. We recommend wearing a lightweight and moisturizing serum under sunscreen, avoiding heavy moisturizing creams.
  • Combination skin sunscreen. Opt for lightweight textures: ideally, in these cases, you would have two specific sunscreens for oily-prone areas and for drier areas. The more targeted you respond to your skin's needs, the more comfortable wearing sunscreen will be.
  • Dry skin sunscreen. For skin in need of more hydration, it is ideal to opt for very moisturizing sunscreens, enriched with hyaluronic acid, characterized by thicker textures (but not necessarily thick!). Also, always apply sunscreen after completing your skincare routine.
  • Mature skin sunscreen. Choose an anti-aging sunscreen, aimed at protecting the skin from signs of aging, thanks to the presence of antioxidant and anti-wrinkle ingredients.


High, medium, or low sun protection?

Needless to say, the right answer would always be "high protection and broad spectrum", because shielding yourself from UVA and UVB rays is the best way to care for your skin. One of the most common reasons people choose not to wear SPF or apply a low protection index is for tanning. Let's dispel this misunderstanding immediately: applying sunscreen does not prevent you from tanning, quite the opposite! Sunscreen is not in competition with the natural functioning of melanin; rather, it will simply promote a progressive and even tan, avoiding sunburns and peeling. Building your tan intelligently will help it last longer, which is why opting for SPF 50+ or SPF 30 should become a habit and not an exception. However, it is up to you to determine if you need lowmediumhigh, or very high protection.


Aftersun and Cleansing

Do you know the feeling that sunscreen buildup, sand, and salt leave on your skin at the end of a long day at the beach? The only way to get rid of it is through a nice shower, preferably with products designed to dissolve and rinse off sun filters. Prefer nourishing and gentle body washes or shower gels to restore the skin's balance after long hours of sun exposure. After cleansing, it is essential to rehydrate the skin all over your body: this will not only help restore the skin's natural barriers but also make your tan last longer. Choose the aftersun that best suits your needs and apply it generously. It's always better to opt for aftersun than a regular moisturizer: the former is designed to have a fast-absorbing texture and soothing ingredients ideal for the post-sun exposure period.


Melanin boosters?

Did you know that to achieve the perfect tan, you need to prepare your skin for the sun? Starting to apply a specific product, capable of stimulating melanin production, about a week before direct sun exposure, will allow you to develop a more intense and luminous tan, but above all, a longer-lasting one. Melanin boosters help the skin activate our sun protection factor, that is, melanin, but they do not replace sunscreen at all: therefore, always remember to apply sunscreen before sun exposure.


Some unexpected sunscreens

We have selected some unexpectedly useful SPF products:

  • SPF spray. Ideal for those who want quick application or for makeup lovers: the spray formulation allows you to reapply SPF throughout the day, even over foundation. Pay attention to have an even application.
  • SPF stick. Perfect for athletes or for targeted protection in sensitive areas. Also, consider sticks that are slightly tinted to give the face a touch of color and coverage, without white residues.
  • SPF drops. The solution to transform any liquid product into an effective SPF: mix them inside your moisturizer or foundation! Pay attention to quantities, however, in order to apply the necessary amount of sunscreen.
  • SPF lip balm. Choose a moisturizing lip balm with SPF to forget about dry and chapped lips.
  • SPF for hair. Often overlooked, hair also needs protection from the sun and salt!
