How to use Sunscreen

Most sunscreens either block, reduce or change the harmful effects of UVB ( which cause sunburns).

They may contain organic or inorganic compounds, or both. Organic compounds absorb UV rays while the inorganic ones absorb and reflect UV at the same time.

Your sunscreen should contain zinc oxide, avobenzone or titanium dioxide if you need to block UVA. Most sunscreens block only UVB.

If you can’t wear creams, try finding moisturizers that contain SPF.
