When buying sunscreen, it is not necessary to buy one with a high rating of SPF. What’s important is to look for sunscreens that protects against both UVA and UVB radiation. For so long now sunscreen has successfully blocked UVB rays. The SPF ratings only apply to UVB rays. Yet, UVA rays are as important as UVB. It penetrates the skin more deeply and has long been a major affect for skin wrinkles.
One thing to put in consideration when applying sunscreen is to carefully follow the label. Many people apply sunscreen without carefully examine the amount necessary for maximum protection. In result, if you’re placing less than the amount indicated, your skin will not be fully protected.
Another thing to remember is always apply sunscreen on 15 minutes before going out in the sun and reapply every two hours.
