Sun Protection with SPF ?

heat-149937_1280Many of us know that we should use some type of protection from the sun on our skin.  But how many of us know what makes an SPF product right for our needs and to get the best results. I searched the www to find what the experts say. Make sure to click the source links for more details.

Here are some facts

  1. The term SPF, or sun protection factor, is a measurement of UVB protection.
  2. UVB rays are the burning rays, while UVA rays are the aging rays, leading to wrinkles and dark spots on the skin.
  3. By choosing a higher SPF, you may avoid a sunburn, but UVA rays may still be getting through.
  4. …choosing a sunscreen that offers “broad spectrum” protection is essential to protect against both UVB and UVA rays.
  5. Look for the following on your product’s label: zinc oxide, titanium dioxide, avobenzone, ecamsule or oxybenzone. Source: PCA SKIN

Here are some products I think are worth checking out.
