How to use Sunscreen

How to use Sunscreen

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

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.

How to apply sunscreen

Cleanse your face. Apply toner to close pores. Apply Face Serum. Apply Moisturizer and now you can apply sunscreen.

Which Sunscreen is the Best for Face in India

Use a suncreen which can block both UVA and UVB , to prevent sunburns and tans at the same time. Look for creams that are hypoallergenic and non-comedogenic (don’t block skin pores) so they don’t cause a rash or clog your pores.

How to Choose Sunscreen

The efficiency of a sunscreen is measured in SPF (Sun Protection Factor). Get a cream with an SPF higher than 30 for better protection. For dark skin people SPF 15 to SPF 30 is okay. If you are fair skin you need SPF 50.

When to Apply Sunscreen ?

Apply sunscreen daily and in all weather (even when its cloudy). Reapply every half an hour to an hour. Apply more often if you sweat a lot or have been swimming
