Social awareness to strengthen sunscreen is increasingly achieved but it is worth to remark its importance now summer is arriving, as summer is the time of year where the sun can damage more our skin health. As we know, protecting from the sun is essential to prevent sunspots and burns that sometimes may even lead to skin cancer.
However, we don’t need to give up sunbathing in the summer if we make sure to protect adequately and enjoy the advantages of sunbathing: it gives us vitamin D, it makes us happy, it makes us sleep better and even it can increase life length… but whenever you sunbath with caution.
Sunscreens, today, are more than just protective and better be well informed to know what sunblock we need in each case. Their formulations are so sophisticated that we find products that serve several functions in one application, smart textures with thousands of properties (sun cream, sun spray, sun lotion, sun oil…). But how do they work? What is the best protector for your skin type? What is the right cosmetic ritual?
There are three basic types of sunscreens among which we can choose according to our skin type and needs:
Three aspects for a good sunscreen:
– Having more than SPF15 (for white skins for the first few days of sun exposure is recommended at least SPF30 or even SPF50). The SPF (Sun Protection Factor) is a measure of how effectively a sunscreen will defend us against ultraviolet (UV-B).
– Being waterproof and sweat
– No cause allergies or skin irritation
In addition, we remind you that any sunscreen should be applied half an hour before sun exposure and reapplied every two hours or after swimming in the water. Moreover, the most dangerous hours for sunbathing are between 12 noon to 4 pm. During those hours, covering up with clothing, sunglasses and a hat will help you prevent sun damage.
