Different skin types need different kinds of sunscreen. It is especially important during the summer season to protect your skin, as more of it will be exposed to harmful rays. Always use a broad-spectrum sunscreen to protect against UVA and UVB rays. An SPF of at least 30 is recommended for everyone. Dry skin types should choose a sunscreen that doubles as a moisturizer, while oily skin types should look for water-based products. There are also fragrance, alcohol, and preservative-free options for sensitive skin types. Children and babies have thinner skin and should always use a minimum of at least 50 SPF. Water resistant products are usually better to keep from sweating off. And as always, check the ingredient list to be informed of what’s actually in your product.
- This is the time for summer and whenever the summer comes, the sun is high and one has to spend time outdoors.
- Sometimes during the summer the temperature might not be too hot but mild but that should not fool one into failing to apply sunscreen.
- The face cream that is applied to the body can give one some protection, but when the temperatures are higher, the SPV has to be higher.
“Sunscreens are mostly made of lab-produced chemicals, but if you want to protect and moisturize your skin additionally, look for natural ingredients, oils, and extracts.”
