Four tips for applying sunscreen this summer


Temperatures are soaring around the globe and if you are a skincare enthusiast, It’s a no-brainer that sunscreen is an important part of any skin care routine. It helps protect the skin from harmful UV rays and can help reduce the risk of sunburn, wrinkles, age spots, and other forms of skin damage. Wearing sunscreen every day is essential for protecting your skin against premature aging and potential health risks associated with overexposure to sunlight.

SUNSCREEN: The sun protection factor (SPF) of sunscreens measures how well they are able to block ultraviolet (UV) rays. More protection is indicated by higher numbers. Even on chilly or partly overcast days, you should wear a broad-spectrum sunscreen with at least SPF 15. The term "broad-spectrum" on a product's label refers to the sunscreen's ability to block both UVA and UVB radiation exposure. Deep-penetrating UVA photons are mostly to blame for early ageing and skin cancer. Sunburn is a result of UVB radiation damaging the skin's surface.


Reapply sunscreen: Reapplying sunscreen regularly and properly is essential in order to protect yourself from the sun's UVA & UVB rays. Not reapplying sunscreen can leave you exposed to these harmful rays, which can lead to skin damage such as sunburns or even more serious conditions like skin cancer. It is important to make sure that you are applying enough sunscreen and reapply it every two hours when outdoors for optimal protection. Additionally, be sure not to forget any areas of your body that may have been missed during application. By taking the time to apply and re-apply sunscreen correctly, you will help ensure that your skin stays safe from harm caused by the sun's damaging rays.

Choose Make - up products with SPF : Make products with SPF is like the cherry on top of the cake when it comes to sun protection. Though SPF makeup cannot and should not be replaced by traditional sunscreen, having make up with SPF adds an extra layer of protection from harmful UV rays that can cause skin damage over time. This additional layer helps protect your skin even further while still allowing you to look great in whatever makeup style you choose. With so many options available for cosmetics containing SPF, there's no reason why everyone shouldn't take advantage of this added benefit!

Use sunscreen indoors : It is important to use sunscreen indoors, even if you are not spending time outside. Sunscreen helps protect your skin from the sun's harmful UV rays that can penetrate through windows and other sources of light. Using sunscreen indoors will help reduce the risk of developing wrinkles, age spots, and other signs of premature aging caused by exposure to ultraviolet radiation. Additionally, using sunscreen indoors can also help prevent skin cancer which is a serious health concern for many people today.
