Because ultraviolet radiation is getting stronger and stronger, UV protection sun cream should not be missing from your bag.
However, choosing sunscreen is not always easy. Especially since cosmetics shops and the internet are full of solutions that promise the best and most effective sun protection.
SPF is a measure of how much UVB light sunscreen can protect you from. According to New York City-based dermatologist Adarsh Vijay Mudgil, an SPF of at least 30 is recommended, which he calls the “magic number”. SPF 15 blocks about 93% of UVB rays, while SPF 30 blocks about 97% of UVB rays.
But how do we make sure we choose a cream that will really protect our facial skin from the sun’s rays?
Here are a few hints.
-When using SPF face cream, you should also take into consideration your skin type.
-Cream that is waterproof is more effective.
-Look for a broad-spectrum sunscreen cream.
-Avoid harmful chemical ingredients.
-Check the expiry date of the cream.
-Consider the time you spend in the sun (Apply sunscreen about 15 minutes before going out in the sun and reapply every few hours).
Check out these benefits of using SPF cream:
-Reduce the risk of skin cancer.
-Helps prevent inflammation and redness of the skin.
-Protects against sunburn.
-Prevent premature skin aging and the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
-Prevents hyperpigmentation of the skin, i.e. the appearance of brown spots on the face.
