What is the best sunscreen for everyday use?
Sunscreen can prevent sunburn, thereby reducing the risk of getting skin cancer and preventing early ageing of skin. When selecting a sunscreen for everyday use, make sure the label has the following:
- The words “broad spectrum” – this means that the lotion can protect your skin from both types of UV rays (UVA and UVB).
- Dermatologist recommend an SPF rating of 30 or higher.
- The words “water resistant” – it means that the sunscreen will remain on your skin even in water. Usually, water resistant sunscreens last for about 40-80 minutes, after which re-application is required.
Is there a sunscreen that allows you to tan?
Even after applying sunscreens with an SPF rating of 30 or more, 2-3% of UVB rays will still enter the skin. So, you can still get tanned with a sunscreen lotion. But for those who want to tan themselves faster, there are special sunscreens and Caribbean breeze products available at Essentials.lk that allow for tanning of skin.
Is wearing sunscreen everyday bad for you?
Wearing sunscreen everyday is not bad for you, in fact it is a must. In addition to protecting your skin from UV rays for those who are both indoors and outdoors, sunscreen prevents the accumulation of dirt, which can damage your skin.
