Practice Safe Sun with SPF Sunscreen
Enhance your sunny disposition with the perfect tan. Exercising smart sun protection using a dependable SPF-rated sunscreen lowers your risk of developing skin cancer and helps to prevent unsightly, painful sunburns, leaving you simply sun-kissed all summer long.
Ensuring your sun care product adequately blocks harmful UV radiation is crucial. How well you are protected varies by sunscreen type, but don’t just pick a product based on high SPF (Sun Protection Factor) ratings alone. Base your buy on your skin colour, time outdoors, shade and cloud cover. A range of available SPF ratings help to customize your summer skin care and adjust for the pigment and sensitivity differences of each family member.
Ingredients from A to Zinc
An essential combination of ingredients creates the SPF rating that dissuades UVB rays from reaching your skin where they can cause redness, burning, wrinkles, sagging, and leathering. Lifeguards used to sport a strip of white gunk on their noses and that zinc mixture is still an integral part of sunscreen, modified to be more transparent and blendable. Look for zinc oxide as an active ingredient in sun care products to ensure adequate skin protection.
