Sunscreen is your portable shade

This is the most underestimated skin friend ever. Sun radiations can cause a lot of harm to your skin. From premature skin aging to pigmentations to raising the risk of skin cancer to awful painful sunburns etc.. but sadly hardly anyone pays attention to sunscreen’s importance in our daily life. In this blog we’re going to tell you everything you need to know about sunscreens and their importance and what they can do to keep your skin safe and protected.


What is sunscreen?


Sunscreen comes in the form of lotions, creams, sticks, gels, oils, butters, pastes and sprays. The first thing you need to know about sunscreens is something called “SPF”. According to “SPF stands for Sun Protection Factor. The number tells you how long the sun’s UVB rays would take to redden your skin if you apply the sunscreen exactly as directed compared with the amount of time without sunscreen. So, if you use an SPF 30 product properly, it would take you 30 times longer to burn than if you used no sunscreen.” They also say that “If you’re inside most of the day with just short intervals in the sun, you can use a sunscreen or cosmetic product with an SPF of 15 or higher. If you spend a lot of time outdoors, especially when and where the sun is strongest, you need an SPF 30 or higher, water-resistant sunscreen.”


What sunscreen should I use?


First of all, choose the right amount of SPF for you as mentioned above. Then, make sure to get broad-spectrum protection sunscreen because it protects your skin from both UVA and UVB rays. Finally, we come to the most important part which is choosing the right sunscreen for your skin type because as we always say, your skin type determines everything.


  • For dry skin:

When it comes to dry skin, adding a bit of extra moisture is all you need to be doing so try to get a moisturizing sunscreen in the form of a cream. Look for ingredients like Hyaluronic acid or Glycerin because they have great moisturizing properties.


  • For oily skin:


In this case, try to get a water-based or gel sunscreen with sebum regulating ingredients such as Green tea or Niacinamide.


  • For normal skin:

If you have normal skin you don’t really have much to worry about so the choice here is yours but still you have to get the right ingredients to keep your normal skin away from any damage so Green tea would be a nice choice because it’s organic and healthy.


Last but not least, if you’re exercising or going for a quick swim make sure to get a sunscreen that is labeled water resistant or very water resistant.


And there you have it. That’s pretty much everything you need to know about sunscreens and now you’re ready to use it right and effectively.
