The Importance Of Wearing Sunscreen

Sunscreen is crucial in achieving and maintaining clear skin. Sunscreen protects the skin from harsh UVA & UVB rays. Without sunscreen you are prone to:

  • Sunspots
  • Blemishes
  • Dark Spots
  • Pigmentation
  • Uneven Skin Tone
  • Sun Burn
  • Redness
  • Aging
  • Thinning Skin Leading To Wrinkles
  • Dehydrated Skin

What is SPF?

SPF stands for ‘Sun Protection Factor’. The level of SPF in a sunscreen indicates how long the sunscreen will shield you from the sun.

SPF of 15 = 15 times the protection.

SPF of 30 = 30 times the protection

Where Should You Apply Sunscreen?

Sunscreen should be applied specifically where the skin is exposed, including face, neck, arms, legs, hands, back, hands, feet, etc.

What Are Some Other Ways To Protect Your Skin From The Sun?

  • Use umbrellas.
  • Wear hats and scarves where possible.
  • Wear sunglasses.
  • Try and stay in the shade.
  • For those who wear makeup, layering with moisturizer, sunscreen and then foundation can give your skin extra protection from the sun.

Who Should Wear Sunscreen?

Everyone should be wearing sunscreen. Age (child or elderly) and skin type (oily or dry) do not matter in this case.

    • Hi Girija, if spf gives you allergies, I would recommend using other ways of protecting your skin from UV rays. For instance, you can wear hats, sunglasses or even scarves to protect your skin. You can also see your doctor and ask him or her what type of sunscreen they would recommend in your case. I hope that’ll help you, allgeries are terrible!
