Why do we need to use Sunscreen?

It's the beginning of a new year and for sure, a lot of us are planning our summer trips in the succeeding months. Whether you are going to the beach or staying at home, it is important to protect our skin from thr harmful UV rays of the sun. One of the most important thing to bring when travelling are sun protection products. There are lots of sun protection products in the market today, and it is best to know what these products are for. 

Did you know that excessive exposure to the sun causes the wrinkles and age spots on our faces?

What is sunscreen?
Sunscreen is a skincare product in a form of cream, spray, gel, or lotion that is used to protect the skin from the harmful ultraviolet (UV) rays of the sun. It also prevents radiation from entering the skin and protects the skin against sunburn.

Why do we need to use sunscreen?
Using these sun protection products decreases the chances of having a sunburn and skin allergy and prevent skin cancer. It helps prevent skin discoloration and slows down having aging skin.

What to look for when searching for a sunscreen?
  1. Broad spectrum protection
  2. Sun Protection Factor (SPF) 30 or higher
  3. Water Resistance
However, you also need to keep in mind that to protect your skin from aging and cancer, do not prolong staying under the sun. The sun's rays are stronger from 10AM to 2PM so it is better if you are indoors during these hours.

Remember to apply your sunscreen 15 minutes before going outdoors. Reapply as needed or within 2 hours. Sunscreens with SPFs higher than 50 performs the same than those with SPF 50.
