Which sun cream gives you the best tan?
It is important to find sun care products Sri Lanka which you are comfortable with using on a regular basis. Apart from SPF levels, the sunscreen you select for your skin should be either with chemical active or mineral active ingredients.
Chemical sunscreens absorb harmful UV rays before they reach your skin. Although these sprays and lotions are easy to apply, you will have to reapply the product more often than a mineral based option.
Mineral sunscreens form a barrier on your skin that filters or reflects UVA and UVB rays. This zinc and titanium-based formula is slightly more difficult to spread on your skin and can leave a white layer on it but will last longer than the chemical version.
Whichever formula you decide to use, be sure to apply the sunscreen at least 15 minutes before exposure to the sun so it has enough time to form and protect your skin.
How can I tan safely in the sun?
Exposure to UVA and UVB rays lead to dangerous sun burns, skin damage, early ageing of skin and potentially skin cancer.
- Broad spectrum sunscreen formulas with a minimum SPF level of 50 is most recommended to tan your skin while protecting against harmful UV rays from the sun.
- Sunscreens are NOT water resistant. Read the label on the product and reapply every 40 or 80 minutes as appropriate when in water.
- If your skin is dry, opt for cream and lotion type formulas. If using a spray formula, spray generously.
What can I use to prevent tanning?
