Should I Wear A High SPF?
Sunscreens with a higher SPF offer more protection, according to dermatologist. However, there is a down side. Some people that apply higher SPF sunscreens assume that they are able to spend a lot more time in the sun. Think again. Sun damage to the skin might take place, even if the person is wearing a high SPF sunscreen. For example, SPF 50. Wear a higher sunscreen for maximum protection, but include other sun protection methods. For example, wearing a hat with a wide brim, applying more sunscreen every hour, wearing sun protective clothes on arms and legs, avoiding the sun at the highest point, and wear sunglasses to protect the eyes.
What About Natural Sunscreens?
Natural implies that the ingredients were not treated with chemicals. Mineral sunscreens like zinc oxide and titanium dioxide are considered natural. The fact is that the products labeled natural were treated with chemicals during processing. The natural sunscreens work by creating a physical barrier on the skin that blocks out the harmful UVA and UVB rays. The physical sunscreens are good at blocking harmful UVA and UVB rays and are a safe alternative to chemical based sunscreens.
Will A Sunscreen Provide Protection If It Gets Wet?
If you sweat heavily or go swimming, apply a water or sweat resistant sunscreen. These products should provide more protection. Dermatologist state that the wetness resistant sunscreens are merely sunscreens that maintain the SPF level longer, while exposed to wet conditions. However, no sunscreen is able to provide complete protection against heavy perspiration or water.
Should I Wear Sunscreen In Shady Areas?
If you would like continual sun protection, while outdoors, wear a sunscreen. The shade does not block all the UVA or UVB rays and outside conditions still expose you to those harmful sun-rays. Wear sunscreen in the shade, along with sunglasses too.
Should I Wear The Same Sunscreen On The Face & Body?
If you are in a pinch, go for it. Otherwise, apply the body sunscreen to the body, hands, feet. Apply facial sunscreens to the sensitive facial skin. Facial sunscreens are made to provide protection to the face. They are gentler on the facial skin and include a number of other moisturizing ingredients. Some facial sunscreens are tinted or included in makeup foundations.
