Sunlight is an essential and a much-needed source of Vitamin D for our human body. Though we enjoy the mild & warm sunlight rays in the early morning, I am sure you guys hate when the summer season arrives. Just the thought of the sunny afternoon’s and the night times makes us scared with no air around! Despite taking all the necessary precautions for our health, we still are not able to beat the summer heat and enjoy the good times.
We feel more irritated, sultry and frustrated all the time resulting in less concentration towards the work that we are doing. Our health gets affected to a very great extent knowingly or unknowingly as no one is that perfect that they can follow all the right”To Do” things for the summer.Out of many “To Do” List for the summer, the major one is applying a sunscreen before you start from the home. Sunscreen is the only protector that we blindly use and think will protect our skin & skin tone. So it becomes really important to make sure that we are buying the best Sunscreen that is available in the market.
Now the question comes into place, how do you choose the best sunscreen for yourself? Do you go by the brand name hoping the brand is giving you all an excellent Sunscreen product which will keep your skin safe or will you go by the sunscreen product’s ingredients and choose the best sunscreen accordingly irrespective of the brand value?
We at fashioniteworld will give you a little brief on what you need to be looking into while buying a sunscreen for yourself or for your family during this summer 2018. Buying a sunscreen with the below points noted down will make you choose the best sunscreen.
The most common factor that we as consumers look into while buying a Sunscreen is the Sun Protection Factor (SPF) factor and its range. Based on this factor, most of the prices of the Sunscreens vary. The higher the SPF, the more costly the Sunscreen product tends to be. Are you among those who use SPF 15 or only SPF Sunscreen products? If yes, then we suggest you go through the information that we are providing here on Sunscreen products.
Usually, the UV rays reach the earth in two forms i.e, UVA (Ultraviolet A) and UVB (Ultraviolet B). Both of these rays have different side effects on the human body. While UVB is something to do with sunburns and rashes, UVA has to do more with tanning and causing pigmentation affecting the skin color and the skin genes in deep sometimes leading to skin cancer as well at a later stage during the aging process. Too much of exposure to UVA leads to fine lines, wrinkles and quick aging which is not noticed immediately.
A Sunscreen, when chosen, needs to have the ingredients that can fight both UVA & UVB exposure to the skin. Most of the Sunscreen products available in the market are specifically designed for UVB rays highlighting the SPF factor & its range. This keeps our skin safe and cool. But misses out on the UVA due to which the skin cells, inner layers over a long period gets affected.
As a consumer, you need to go for a Sunscreen with ingredients that fight both UVA & UVB.
For UVA exposure – What you need to be looking into the Sunscreen product are as follows- Persistent Pigment Darkening (PPD) and its range. The PPD is measured in terms of PA, PA+,PA+++ (scaled of 8 to 16),PA++++ (16 and greater). With a better scale comes a better Sunscreen product.
For UVB – What you need to be looking into the Sunscreen product are as follows – SPF and its range. We seek you to avoid using products with SPF 15 as it will hardly have any impact on your skin. SPF 30 will protect your skin up to 97% while, SPF 50 will protect your skin up to an extent of 98%.
We advise you to go with a Sunscreen product that consists of the ingredients which fight both UVA & UVB exposure to skin. The Sunscreen product needs to have the required range of SPF & along with the presence of PA. The Sunscreen lotion or the Sunscreen cream needs to be applied in adequate quantity unlike the quantity of a regular face cream. If the Sunscreen product is applied in a lesser quantity, it may not protect your face to the extent that you think of. Some of the Sunscreen brands in the market are giving out best Sunscreen lotions and Sunscreen creams this year 2018 to its consumers.
