The benefits of sunscreen to protect your skin

The cream solar is an indispensable product for protecting our skin from the sun's harmful UV rays. As well as preventing sunburn, it offers many other benefits for the health and beauty of our skin. 

What are the benefits of sunscreen, and why is it crucial to incorporate it into our daily routine? We tell you all about it!

UV protection

Sunscreen is the first line of defense against the sun's harmful ultraviolet (UV) rays. In addition to sunburn, UV rays can penetrate deep into the skin, causing irreparable damage such as premature aging, brown spots and, in the most serious cases, skin cancer. Regular use of a broad-spectrum sun cream, such as Polaar Sunsunscreens, effectively protects the skin from the harmful effects of 2 types of UV rays:

  • UVB rays account for 5-10% of all UV radiation, and are the main cause of sunburn. By penetrating the upper layers of the skin, they stimulate melanin production and thickening of the epidermis, resulting in tan but also burns


  • UVA rays, which account for 90-95% of UV radiation, penetrate deeper into the skin and are the main cause of long-term skin damage. 


To protect against UV rays, there are 2 types of sunscreen: organic filters and mineral filters. Organic filters, also known as chemical filters, are composed of molecules of synthetic origin that absorb UV rays instead of the skin. Mineral filters, on the other hand, reflect rays back to the skin's surface. They act like a mirror.

At Polaar we use these 2 types of filters in our Sun Care Face Fluid and our SPF50+ Face and Body Lotion for maximum protection. 

Preventing premature aging

Excessive exposure to the sun is one of the main factors in premature skin aging. UV rays generate free radicals and accelerate the breakdown of collagen and elastin, two essential proteins responsible for skin firmness and elasticity. By using our Sun Face Fluid SPF50+, you can minimize wrinkles, fine lines and age spots, and keep skin looking young and healthy for longer. Its light, non-greasy texture means you can apply it at the end of your usual skincare routine, for daily protection.

Prevention of pigmentation problems

Sunscreen also plays a crucial role in preventing skin pigmentation problems. Excessive exposure to the sun can cause brown spots, freckles and hyperpigmentation, particularly in people with darker complexions. By regularly applying sunscreen, you can significantly reduce the risk of developing these pigmentation problems and keep your complexion even and radiant.

Reduced risk of skin cancer

Skin cancer is one of the most common forms of cancer, but fortunately it's also one of the most preventable. Regular use of a sunscreen with an appropriate sun protection factor (SPF) helps reduce the risk of developing skin cancer, particularly melanoma. By protecting your skin from harmful UV rays, sunscreen is a vital preventive measure for maintaining your long-term health. At Polaar, all our sunscreens are formulated with the highest SPF: 50+, for maximum protection.

Preserves skin moisture

Some creams solars contain moisturizing ingredients that help maintain skin hydration, often put to the test by sun exposure. Such is the case with our Polaar Sun suncare products. The formulas of our Sun Face Fluid SPF50+ and our SPF50+ Face and Body Sun Milkenriched with Aloe Vera, Coconut and Oat Grain extracts, boost cell renewal while deeply moisturizing, nourishing and soothing the skin. Our SPF50+ Sun Stick, a practical, on-the-go formula enriched with Shea Butter, Coconut and Castor Oil to moisturize, nourish and repair the skin, without leaving it greasy.

As you can see, it's vital to protect your skin from UV rays, and to reapply your sunscreen frequently when you're exposed to the sun. To achieve this, it's important to choose the right galenic formulation. Polaar has developed formulas with light, non-greasy textures that are easy to apply and leave no white marks. Fragrance-free, Polaar sunscreens ensure maximum protection and tolerance without compromising on sensoriality!
