The sun is one of the most important things in our lives. It gives us warmth, sustenance, and vitamin D. However, and it also creates a lot of damage to your skin if you aren’t careful. This blog post will give you 7 tips on choosing the right SPF for your skin type so that you can be protected from harmful UV rays without sacrificing too much natural beauty!
Number #1: Choose the right SPF. The higher the number, the more protection you’ll get; however, some people can’t handle high numbers on their skin. If you’re one of them (and your doctor says it’s ok), consider using a lower SPF sunscreen like 15 or 30. You also need to make sure that your sunscreen protects against both UVA and UVB rays – it should say “broad spectrum” somewhere in its description! Also, make sure it has hemp oil.
Number #2: Apply every day — even when you aren’t going out! Wearing an SPF is just as important during cloudy days because most sun damage occurs between 11 AM and 12 PM at 45 degrees North Latitude. When possible, wear protective clothing rather than trying to cover yourself with sunscreen.
Number #3: Watch out for ingredients like oxybenzone, retinyl palmitate (vitamin A), and fragrances if you have sensitive skin; they can cause allergic reactions or irritations that make your skin worse than it would be without sunscreen!
Number #4: Don’t rely on makeup with sunscreen for complete protection. Makeup only protects against UVB rays, which are responsible for sunburns but not the deeper skin damage that leads to wrinkles and other signs of aging. Also, be aware that powder SPFs aren’t as effective because they can make you sweat off your sunscreen before it’s had a chance to absorb fully into your skin!
Number #5: Keep your sunscreen in the dark, cool place. Ultraviolet light breaks down the active ingredients that protect you against harmful rays, rendering them ineffective!
Number #6: Reapply every two hours — or even more often if you’re swimming or sweating heavily! Lotion can wash off with water alone, so be sure to follow up after taking baths and showers as well.
Number #7: Examine yourself for skin damage regularly – especially areas without visible sunburns, like between fingers and toes where signs of aging may not show up immediately! Skin cancer is no joke; it’s one of the most common forms of cancer because many people don’t realize they have it until it’s too late.
In conclusion, wearing an SPF is just as important as eating a balanced diet, exercising frequently, and getting enough sleep.
