Hello Readers! 

The month we are in is March 2022, however the temperature nowadays gives us the feeling like we are in last week of April! Yes! The temperature this year in March only has reached 35 degree Celsius, the temperature we might face in July is unpredictable. One thing is for sure, this year Summer Is Going To Be TOO HOT!!

Well, no matter how hot it is outside, what’s always important for every individual is, be smart when it comes to protection of your skin from the harmful ultraviolet rays!!

The Ultraviolet rays in the sunlight are harmful, they are majorly responsible for a number of skin issues, in fact they may also cause skin cancer in any individual, if not taken proper safety measurements against them.

Experts advise, if you step out of your house when the sun shines loud in the sky, do not forget to wear your sunscreen that is enriched with SPF!

Why Sunscreens Are Advised? 

UVB rays are the ones that cause sunburn when you have been indulging in a little too much time outdoors, without adequate protection.

Sunscreens are prepared especially with SPF that give protection to skin against the harmful UVB rays. SPF stands for ‘sun protection factor’ and indicates the level of protection a product offers from the sun’s harmful UVB rays.

The SPF contain in sunscreens range from SPF 15 to SPF 50! Now here the query that rise, how much SPF contain in sunscreen is ideal? Let us see!

Different SPF Protection Levels! 

According to the FDA, the use of a sunscreen with an SPF of 15 or above, combined with other measures, such as wearing sunglasses and avoiding the midday sun, can help prevent skin cancer.

In some places, protection levels are expressed as follows:

  1. Low protection: SPF is below 15
  2. Medium protection: SPF is 15 to 29
  3. High protection: SPF is 30 to 49
  4. Very high protection: SPF is over 50

Which Sunscreen Is Better SPF 30 Or SPF 50? 

When we look at the difference between SPF levels, SPF 30 and SPF 50 for example, this comes down to the percentage of the sun’s UVB rays that the product can block. A product with an SPF level of 15 will block around 93% of the sun’s UVB rays. You will often find SPF 15 in makeup and skin care products. However, in sunscreens, the industry standard, and the SPF recommended by Dermatologists is generally SPF 30 and above.

A sunscreen with SPF 30 will protect you from around 96.7% of UVB rays, whereas an SPF of 50 means protection from about 98% of UVB rays. Anything beyond SPF 50 makes very little difference in terms of risk of sun damage, and no sunscreens offer 100% protection from UVB rays.

However, when it comes to expert advertise, using any sunscreen that is labelled broad spectrum, water-resistant and SPF30 or above must be used.

To know more about the use of sunscreens and SPF, do consult a skin expert or dermatologist!
