Sun Ray Protection



Sunscreen Facts

The products with a high SPF are more effective at protecting the skin against the powerful UV-B rays emitted by the sun. UV-B is the ultraviolet radiation that is responsible for sun damage. Furthermore, basking in the noon day sun leads to sun damage, wrinkles, and premature aging.

Sun Protection Factor
The SPF, or Sun Protection Factor, is the amount of UV radiation that a person can withstand before their skin burns. For example, a sunscreen with SPF 30 means that your skin is able to withstand 30 times normal exposure to the sun before skin burns. In addition, the sun exposure amount is dependent upon the time sun exposure occurs. Early morning and late afternoon sun is less harmful to the skin then exposure at high noon. At high noon the sun is at its highest point.

Sunblock
Sunblock is thicker than your basic sunscreen product and better at blocking the harmful rays. Sunblock is best at blocking UV-A and UV-B rays.

Sunscreen
The good news is that sunscreen products are thinner and easier to apply than sunblock. On the other hand, sunscreens do not last as long as a sunblock and require frequent application. Sunscreens are also able to block harmful UV-A and UV-B rays.

Sunscreen Moisturizers
The market is filled with sunscreen products packed with moisturizing ingredients that are great for dry or sensitive skin. Top picks include:

olay broad spec
- Olay Complete All Day Moisturizer With Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 15

Lioreal
- L'Oreal Paris New Sublime Sun Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 50
