It’s needless to explain the importance of applying an SPF every day. Sunscreen is one product that should always be a staple in your skincare routine regardless of the weather or the season.
While we all know how the sun makes life on this planet possible, UV radiation is bad news for our skin. Therefore, we’re emphasising that sunscreen application and reapplication every two hours is obligatory as most of the photodamage your skin endures happens during your everyday activities.
Things to keep in mind before choosing a Sunscreen
Go for Water-Resistant Options
A water-resistant sunscreen has a much more extended stay even if you have no plans to jump in the water. It will come in handy on days when you’re heavily sweating or doing extensive outdoor activity. A sunscreen with SPF 50 or higher would ensure that you stay protected from severe sun damage.
Look for Broad-Spectrum on the Sunscreen Label
The Broad-Spectrum Label ensures that your SPF protects the skin against both harmful UVA/UVB rays. Experts recommend choosing an SPF 30 or higher to prevent skin cancer.
Choose Lotions when in doubt.
Sunscreen lotions are an excellent option for generous and even skin application. The lotion spreads evenly all over the body to get the job done right. While sunscreen sticks and sprays deliver an inconsistent application and take more product to absorb into the skin, lotions are easier to apply and absorb.
Look out for the Sunscreen Formulation
Physical or mineral sunscreens sit on the top layer of the skin and deflect the UV rays, while chemical sunscreens work by absorbing the rays.
If you have sensitive or acne-prone skin, mineral sunscreen is a safe choice for you. Sunscreens are made from natural ingredients as they do not cause any skin irritation and keep your skin safe from sun damage.
How to choose the best sunscreen for your skin according to skin type.
No matter the weather or season, sunscreen is a mandatory step in your skincare routine, and one should never skip it. Before heading out, do not forget to apply and reapply your sunscreen as the SPF shields your skin from the harmful sun rays, reduces the risk of skin cancer and sunburns, prevents premature ageing and works on issues like dark spots and wrinkles.
But finding a well-suited sunscreen according to your skin type can be such a task!
A cream or a gel-based sunscreen? A spray or a sunscreen lotion?
SPF or the Sun Protection Factor measures how well a sunscreen protects your skin from harmful UV rays. UVB rays are the harmful sun radiations that are responsible for causing sunburns, suntan and pigmentation. Therefore, it is essential to use a sunscreen that has at least an SPF 30 or above.
Our diverse types of sunscreen come with SPF ranging from 15 to 70, depending on the level of protection your skin requires. The sunscreens are safe to use for kids, men & women as these are free from parabens & preservatives.
