A Guide to Choosing the right sunscreen

The sun's harmful UV rays can cause skin damage, premature ageing, and even skin cancer. Hence, protecting your skin from the sun's rays is essential to maintain healthy skin. Using sunscreens is the most effective way to protect your skin from the sun's damaging effects. But with so many sunscreen products available in the market, it can be overwhelming to choose the right one. This guide will help you choose the best sunscreen that suits your skin type and meets your sun protection needs.

First and foremost, choosing a sunscreen with an appropriate Sun Protection Factor (SPF)-rating is essential. SPF is the measure of how well a sunscreen protects your skin from UVB rays. Dermatologists recommend using sunscreen with at least SPF 30. This SPF rating blocks 97% of UVB rays, while an SPF 50 blocks 98% of UVB rays.

Next, consider your skin type. If you have sensitive skin, look for the best sunscreens for your face, labelled "fragrance-free" and "hypoallergenic." These products are less likely to cause skin irritation. The best sunscreen for everyday use would be a lightweight sunscreen that is easy to apply. Spawake sunscreen products, like the UV Protect Aqua Geland UV Protect Silky Milk, are great options. The UV Protect Aqua Gel sunscreen is non-greasy and quickly absorbs into the skin. On the other hand, the UV Protect Silky Milk provides hydration and a silky smooth finish, but both the sunscreens are suitable for all skin types.

When applying sunscreen, use enough product to cover your entire body, including your face, neck, and ears. The general rule of thumb is to use a shot glass worth of sunscreen for your body and a dime-sized amount for your face. Remember to reapply sunscreen every two hours, especially if you are sweating or swimming.

In conclusion, choosing the right sunscreen is essential to protect your skin from the sun's harmful rays. When shopping for sunscreen, look for an appropriate SPF rating, choose lightweight and easy-to-apply products, apply enough product, choose safe ingredients, and consider your skin type and opt for the best sunscreen for dry or combination skin. These tips allow you to enjoy the sun without compromising your skin's health.
