It will protect you from harmful UV rays that can damage the skin and cause premature aging.
So, Simply Botanical has put together this useful guide on how sun cream works. We hope you find it useful.
What is sunscreen and how does it work?
Sunscreen contains active ingredients that work to protect skin cells from the sun’s harmful ultraviolet UVA and UVB rays. The best sun creams are designed to prevent skin damage from overexposure to the sun which can lead to skin cancer and premature aging.
Sunscreen skincare products come in a variety of types, including creams, foams, mousses, lotions, sticks, oils, gels, sprays, and powders. The most popular are face sun cream and p20 sun cream because they keep the skin on your face youthful and healthy.
What does “SPF” mean?
SPF is an abbreviation for Sun Protection Factor. The number that follows SPF -15, 30, 50, etc. – specifies how long it takes for the sun’s UVB rays to burn your skin once sunscreen has been applied vs how long it takes unprotected skin to burn.
For example, it takes skin 50 times longer to burn when you’ve applied SPF 50 than when a person is not wearing any SPF at all.
SPF that is not “broad spectrum” only protects skin from UVB rays, so make sure you are choosing a high SPF cream with broad spectrum coverage for maximum protection.
How do physical and chemical sunscreens work?
● Physical sunscreens (aka mineral sunscreens) contain mineral active sunscreen ingredients like titanium dioxide and zinc oxide to reflect UV light off of the skin. Many SPF products include both physical and chemical sunscreen active ingredients for maximum protection.
● Chemical sunscreens are made with chemical active ingredients like homosalate and avobenzone which absorb UV light that touches the skin.
Using the best sun protection cream for your face and body can keep your looking healthy for years to come, preventing unwanted aging.
