How Sun Affects our Skin?
Sun exposure can harm the skin really badly as it produces three different types of UV rays: UVA, UVB, and UVC. The most common form of rays are UVA rays and these rays make up massive sun exposure. The rays which make up less sun exposure but harms skin intensely are UVB rays and UVC rays are the worst, but we are lucky because we don’t face these rays as the earth ozone layer block these rays.
UV rays are the main contributors of free radicals on the skin. According to dermatologists of Rice Research University, free radicals are unstable oxygen molecules that steal energy from healthy cells causing oxidative stress, this process results in activating enzymes in the skin which break down collagen, which is the main structural protein in the skin to keep it youthful. So collagen break down results in premature aging of the skin.
Antioxidants are molecules in cells that prevent free radicals from taking electrons and causing damage. Antioxidants are able to give an electron to a free radical without becoming destabilized themselves, thus stopping the free radical chain reaction.

What does SPF 50 means in the Product?
SPF stands for Sun Protection Factor. The SPF of a product tells how long you can stay in the sun without burning from UV rays. To understand the sunblock protection time there is a rule like count that time you would normally burn in the sun without protection, 10 minutes will normally produce redness on a light skinned individual for example on this product its written SPF 50 so the rule is 50 x 10 = 500 minutes which is equal to 8 hours protection from the sun. So it means by using Oriflame Novage day shield spf 50 our skin will be protected from the sun for about 500 minutes which is really good.
How to use the Product?
On the product its written to apply the sunblock on the face and neck in the morning after the day cream but by applying this sunblock on the skin after the day cream tends to make my skin really greasy and oily so i apply this sun block direct after washing my face as my skin is oily and sensitive and it suits me well like this.
