4 Simple And Effective Steps To Choose The Best Sunscreen

Sunscreen helps to minimize sunburn and skin damage. Being exposed to the sun for a long time makes your delicate skin vulnerable.

Whether you’re on a beach vacation or working outside, it’s important to protect your skin with the appropriate sunscreen. UV radiation can cause a variety of medical problems, including sunburn, wrinkles, skin damage, and more.

How Does The Formulation Of Sunscreen Work?

Sunburn is caused mostly by UVB radiation. UVA rays, on the other hand, penetrate the skin more deeply causing skin aging and wrinkling. You need a way of blocking and absorbing UV radiation. And that is what a high-quality Sunscreen does.

The formula of Sunscreen works by absorbing and blocking both UV and UVB rays.

The Importance Of Using Sunscreen Everyday

1. Aids Against The Chances Of Skin Cancer

The negative impacts of sun exposure are reduced when SPF is used in conjunction with other sun protection practices such as wearing dark clothing and sunglasses. Sunscreen protects your skin and lowers your chances of skin cancer and precancerous lesions.

2. Prevents Sunburn

A single sunburn can double the risk of developing skin cancer. This is because UV radiation from the sun can harm the genetic material in skin cells after penetration. Sunscreen, fortunately, protects the skin against UV rays by soaking, reflecting, or diverting sunlight.

3. Prevents Premature Signs

Sunscreen is a preventative formulation that not only protects your skin from sun damage but also treats wrinkles, age spots, and crow’s feet. Long-term exposure to UVA radiation causes your skin to age quickly and affects collagen production. In fact, solar damage is responsible for up to 90% of the apparent indicators of aging. By using SPF along with your regular skincare routine, you can limit the early signs of aging.

4. No Blotchy Skin & Hyperpigmentation

Hyperpigmentation occurs when portions of the skin discolor or darken in an uneven manner.  If your face, arms, and other parts of the body are routinely exposed to the sun, blotchy skin or dark spots may appear. Wearing sunscreen is an easy approach to avoid these skin concerns.

5. Stop DNA Damage

Sun rays are also the major damaging factors of skin DNA and this can lead to medical conditions like skin cancer and photoaging. Inflammatory in epithelial tissue accelerated aging and tumor growth, can all result from these abnormalities. Sunscreen provides enough protection against the sun’s rays and keeps UV rays at bay.

How To Choose The Best Sunscreen?

At the time of selecting Sunscreen, one of the primary things to consider is your allergy concerns regarding any specific ingredients. It is important to check the ingredients used and look for any potential toxicity. Apart from this, you must consider the following factors to make the best choice in Sunscreens –

1. The Formulation and The Active Ingredients –

Make sure, the formulation includes Zinc Oxide, Titanium Dioxide, and Avobenzone as the active ingredients in the sunscreen. It is recommended to use Sunscreen with Retinol Palmitate (Vitamin A).

2. Make Sure The Product Has Broad Spectrum SPF –

Choose a broad-spectrum sunscreen with an SPF of 30 to 50. It aids in the protection of your skin from sunburn and premature aging. It also aids in the prevention of UVA radiation.

3. Delivery Formats –

The delivery format of a sunscreen determines how it feels and acts on different skin types. There are three common types of sunscreen on the market:

A. Sprays- These are ideal for applying sunscreen to areas of the body that are difficult to reach.

B. Lotions- These are some of the most popular and hydrating sunscreen formulas. They come in a variety of colors and textures to suit different skin types.

C. Sticks- These are some of the most portable and least choices available. They can be used by rubbing them into your skin. They are a practical alternative for travel since they have a very low risk of leaking.

4. Level Of Sun Exposure

Another important consideration when selecting sunscreen is your level of exposure to the sun. For example, you must evaluate how long you will be exposed to the sun, how powerful it will be, and what activities you will be doing while in the sun. Here are some suggestions-

A. Outdoors: If you’ll be outside for a long time (two hours or more), use sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or greater.

B. Sports/swimming: It’s recommended to use a sweat-resistant or water-resistant sunscreen with 50 SPF if you’re going to do sports outside or in the water.

C. Every day: Wear sunscreen with at least SPF 15 on regular days when you will be in the sun and shade.
