Summer is here, and is that time of the year when beach and pool days become a regular to beat the heat and stay cool.
As the temperatures increase, so do the harmful UV rays emitted from the sun.
Although days out and about in the sun may be exciting, it is important to remember to protect the skin to avoid issues including skin cancer, hyperpigmentation and more.
To help ensure the fun does not end, sunscreen is a saviour. Known for being a photo-protective topical product, it helps protect against aging, sunburns as well as reduces the risk of skin cancer.
While picking a sunscreen, it is important to note the Sun Protection Factor (SPF) level, which is the amount of protection against harmful rays, with SPF 15 blocking 93% of UVB radiation, SPF 30 blocking 97%, and SPF 50 providing 98% protection.
As the weather changes, the products used also change to ensure they last through sweat and water, and if in need of some recommendations, from sun protection to makeup, look no further.
