What to look for in a face sunscreen?
Here’s what to look for.
Broad spectrum formula
There are three types of ultraviolet (UV) rays:
- ultraviolet A (UVA)
- ultraviolet B (UVB)
- ultraviolet C (UVC)
UVC rays are absorbed by the earth’s ozone layer and therefore won’t reach your skin. However, UVA and UVB rays can both reach skin and are both a cause for concern.
UVB rays cause most types of skin cancer. UVA rays can also contribute to skin cancer, and they cause skin to age prematurely.
While all sunscreens protect against UVB rays, only broad-spectrum sunscreens protect against both UVA and UVB rays.
That’s why choosing broad spectrum is your best bet when you want to put sunblock for your face. The higher the factor, the more protection it offers. The Dermasure Skincare Range offers you the SPF50 Sunscreen high sun protection products:
1. Sunactiv Sunscreen Cream SPF50 | 75ml
The Sunactiv SPF50 Cream offers a high protection factor for both UVA and UVB, including a moisturizing base, plus antioxidants to protect your skin against sun damage and photoaging. It is both water resistant and fragrance-free – ideal for routine daily use.
2. Sunactiv Sunblock Spray SPF50 | 150ml
