Tips: How to choose sunscreen

  • 1.Pick a broad-spectrum [url=]sunscreen[/url] that protects against UV-A and UV-B rays.The ideal product will have a sun protection factor (SPF) of at least 15.
    2.Read product labels.
    Look for a waterproof brand if you will be sweating or swimming.
    Buy a no-sting product or one specifically formulated for your face.
    3.Choose a brand that does not contain para-aminobenzoic acid (PABA) if you are sensitive to that ingredient.
    4.Try a sunscreen with different chemicals if your skin reacts badly to the one that you are using. Not all sunscreens have the same ingredients.
    5.Use a water-based sunscreen if you have oily skin or are prone to acne.
    6.Be aware that more expensive does not mean better. Although a costly brand might feel or smell better, it is not necessarily more effective than a cheaper product.
    7.Be aware of the expiration date because some sunscreen ingredients might degrade over time.

  • First ,the sunscreen should be suit for your skin type. Choose the brand that you trust then stick to it.Always make sure that you check on the ingredients list at the back of the product. And the SPF level depends on the time you are under the sun, for daily use ,SPF30 is enough.

  • I think if you are going to choose a sunscreen, the SPF isn't the only thing you need to look for. You also have to look for its ingredient before finally choosing one. This is because there are some active ingredients that are found in sunscreens that can potentially inflict damage to your skin and can even increase the risk of skin cancer. I read somewhere that retinyl in sunscreen increases the risk of skin cancer, well there were more ingredients listed there. Please checkout this before buying a sunscreen from the store.

  • Great thanks for the additional info for choosing sunscreen.
