5 Things About Sunscreen You Have To Experience It Yourself

Mar 02,2022 | HISEEK PRETTY

Our skin works to protect us from harmful ultraviolet radiation, which is why we should use sunscreen to protect us from damaging UV rays. Even on cloudy days, our skin is susceptible to the sun's rays which can lead to skin cancer, discoloration, and wrinkles over time.

But are you really using the right sunscreen? Today we're going to talk about 5 things we need to pay attention to when using sunscreen every day

We have 5 interesting facts you didn’t know about sunscreen:

1. A higher SPF doesn’t mean that the sunscreen is safer

The higher the SPF, the better? That is not completely true. If you wear a sunscreen with SPF 30, it means that you can stay in the sun 30 times longer than if you don’t wear protection. But SPF 50 doesn’t mean that you can stay in the sun 50 times longer.

2.You won’t find “water proof” sunscreen at the store

“The FDA no longer allows labelling sunscreens as ‘water proof,’” Dr. Stierstorfer said. “If you’re swimming, look for one that’s labelled ‘water resistant.’”

When using a water-resistant sunscreen, know that it’s water resistant for 40 or 80 minutes, and then you will need to reapply.

3. Temperature is an indication of risk 

Despite recent record-breaking sunny weather, if you live on the coast you’re likely familiar with the month of “June-uary”: that time of year coastal British Columbians sport jackets while the rest of Canada is beginning to bathe in sunshine. 

“Many people think that if it’s cold, sunscreen is pointless,” cautions Dr. Lui. “The truth is, there is a much lower risk for most people on cloudy and rainy days, but if you can see the sun there’s a risk. If it’s bright outside, apply sunscreen to any exposed skin.” 

And if you doubt the doctor, just ask any racoon-eyed spring skier bombing down Blackcomb or Big White. 

4.Sunscreen prevents skin aging

You probably heard this advice many times, but it is really scientifically proven. From various responses it is stated that people who use sunscreen daily have 24% less wrinkles than people who don’t do this.

5.Don't Forget Makeup Remover
An oil-based makeup remover will be effective in removing oil-based sunscreens in the same way that an oil-based cleanser is. Similarly, try a micellar water to bust through layers of sunscreen.

Take a look at these 5 facts and you can conclude that using sunscreen is important! So, protect yourself and those around you from the sun, and keep using sunscreen! Also do the cleaning, that's the least you can do, right?
