It may surprise you to discover you should wear a good quality sunscreen product every single day. You wouldn’t just wear sunscreen when it’s hot, right? You want to be protected even during the cooler months or when it’s a cloudy day; the sun spares no one! Just grab your COTZ and you’ll be protected and good to go in the sun all year round! COTZ Face Natural Tinted is the daily sunscreen you need to get you through the day.
We all know wearing sunscreen protects us from harmful UV rays, yet we tend to only think about applying it when we will be out in the sunlight for a period of time. UV radiation can still be high when it’s cloudy. Even in the winter, the UV rays reflect off the snow when you’re outside. UVA can cause skin cancer and aging while UVB causes your skin to burn. That’s why COTZ Face Natural is the best sunscreen to wear: it’s a broad spectrum UVA/UVB sunscreen that will reflect the sun’s rays off of you. It’s like your very own knight in shining armor suit!
The other great thing about COTZ Face Natural is it’s non-comedogenic (won’t clog pores), and is free of any fragrances, dyes, oils, and parabens!
Physical, Not Chemical, Sunscreen Filters
Speaking of armor suits, our COTZ sunscreen is the healthier sunscreen for a reason; we only use physical sunscreen filters. None of our sunscreens include chemical sunscreen filters.What’s so bad about chemical sunscreen filters, you say? Glad you asked.
Mineral sunscreens work by absorbing, reflecting or scattering the sun’s rays on the skin, while chemical sunscreen filters absorb UV radiation as well as into the skin. Having the sunscreen absorb into the skin can cause irritation and other reactions due to it converting into energy. Physical sunscreen filters will reflect the sun instead of absorbing into the skin.
Prevent Skin Cancer
You may be surprised to know that skin cancer is the most common type of cancer in the United States. 1 in 5 Americans will develop it in their lifetime as a result of sun exposure. Most people don’t spend hours outdoors without sunscreen, but they don’t wear it daily either. A family history of it can also increase your own risk. Wearing sunscreen daily can be a wonderful way to reduce that overall risk. The treatments can be expensive, dangerous, and time consuming so it is best to do what you can to prevent them from being a part of your life. Remember: no matter the weather, wear COTZ and you’ll look even better!
COTZ Face Natural not only protects you from the sun but it gives your face a radiant glow! It has a non-greasy, silky, matte finish that doubles as a primer and foundation. You can apply it easily under your make-up and walk out the door knowing you’re styling and profiling under healthy sunscreen. When you apply it daily you’ll notice your skin will be softer and will look great. Using the mineral sunscreen daily will also help balance out your skin so you’re less likely to have blotched areas that are hard to hide with makeup.
Reduce Signs of Aging
Studies show wearing sunscreen can actually help slow down the aging process. COTZ Face Natural contains Zinc Oxide and Titanium Dioxide, which are the #1 and #2 rated physical sunscreen filters. These ingredients help prevent early aging due to the UVA rays.
Titanium dioxide is great as a physical sunscreen filter because its white coloring allows it to reflect and scatter all UV and visible rays. Zinc oxide also reflects and blocks UV rays, especially in the UV light range.
There are other sunscreens that only contain zinc oxide as the active ingredient and not titanium
dioxide. These zinc oxide sunscreens are wonderful for people with sensitive skin. Having a peel done to your face and afraid to turn into a lobster outside? Put on some COTZ Sensitive or COTZ Flawless Complexion. They reduce the redness and irritation. Since zinc has calming and soothing properties, it would be the best sunscreen to use for that situation. Zinc oxide was also used as a skin protectant and as an ingredient to heal wounds centuries ago, so it’s no surprise it’s now used in sunscreen for just that very reason.
If you start wearing sunscreen early, your skin will have less wrinkles, less fine lines, and less sun damage, and you’ll be on your way to a healthier complexion!
