Sunscreen is an indispensable cosmetic on summer days for everyone, especially for women. Because women often have thin skin and need more care than men.
What is Sunscreen?
A sunscreen is a cosmetic that has a UV-reflective effect that helps the skin not get sunburned. Sunscreen can exist in the form of cream, gel, spray … Using regular and proper sunscreen will help you have a beautiful, bright and smooth skin. Limit aging, sagging, wrinkles, moles and freckles
Why need to use sunscreen
Whether you are wandering on the beach, winter or summer, when you are outside, you are overwhelmed by invisible rays that can cause your skin to burn and burn. This ultraviolet (UV) radiation can also damage DNA in your skin cells, mutating genes that can lead to skin cancer.
Sunscreens, which can be sprays, lotions, gels or waxes, are usually made up of chemical mixtures. Inorganic chemicals in sunscreens can reflect or scatter light out of the skin, and organic substances (based on carbon) can absorb UV light.
If you do not use sunscreen, ultraviolet rays will directly affect the skin, causing the skin to encounter the following conditions:
- Blackened skin
- Brown dot.
- Aging skin.
- Causes skin cancer.
Imfomation to know sunscreen
SPF (SUN PROTECTION FACTOR)
Is an indicator of how long skin is protected by sunscreen. Currently there are many sunscreens with other SPF indicators such as 5 – 100 SPF. Each SPF equals 10 minutes to protect skin from UV rays
Under 8 SPF is not enough to resist ultraviolet rays to protect the skin.
UVB rays are rays that cause sunburn and some types of skin cancer.
PA or Protection Grade of UVA: UVA rays are rays that penetrate deeper into the skin and can cause premature wrinkles, age spots, and also increase the risk of some skin cancers.
It has three levels, PA +, PA ++, PA +++, which correspond to weak (4 hours), moderate (8 hours) and strong (12 hours) UVA levels.
Currently most sunscreens are burnable against both UVA and UVB, but there are currently no standards to list UVA blocking capacity. Inorganic chemicals deflect sunlight will deflect both UVA and UVB rays.
Most organizations recommend using sunscreen with SPF of 15 to 50 (rated SPF higher than 50 has not been proven to be more effective than SPF 50). A sunscreen with an SPF 15 that protects against about 93% of UVB rays and one with an SPF 30 protection against 97% of rays. No SPF can block 100 percent of UV rays.

How to use sunscreen
SOME NOTES WHEN BUYING CREAM
- Indicators of sunscreen.
- Identify the right type of skin to choose the right sunscreen.
For dry skin: You should choose a sunscreen that has the ability to moisturize higher than normal to provide the necessary moisture for the skin, making the skin much softer.
For oily / oily skin: To choose the right cream, unveil a simple and effective way to find the cream with the words “No Sebum” or “Oil Free” These creams do not contain oil. Should help skin more open.
For mixed skin: Just like oily skin, you should choose the type with the word “No Sebum” in the form of a spray or gel to avoid causing sticky but still providing great moisture to the skin.
Normal skin: It is an excellent skin type and can be easily used with any sunscreen. So, you can buy sunscreen according to your preferences. However, I recommend you choose a less sticky type to make you feel comfortable.
NOTE WHEN USING
- Skin should be cleaned before and after using sunscreen.
Before applying the cream, clean your skin with cleansing creams if available, or clean water. Then wipe dry. That is to help the skin to be clear, easy to absorb nutrients from cream. Especially, don’t wash your face with hot water. After returning home, you need to perform a make-up remover to remove dirt from your skin, which helps your skin to be clean, pores are responsible for the best way to remove sweat.
- You should use sunscreen on all body positions that can easily be exposed to the sun.
- The best time to use ice cream is before you step out to work, go out for about 15-20 minutes
- And should use ice cream from the morning.
- Even if it is not sunny, do not forget to apply the cream because although there is no direct sunlight, the light rays are already harmful to the skin already.
- It is advisable to reapply sunscreen after going out for 2-3 hours even though your SPF may work longer but your skin may rub off, knocking away the previously used sunscreen.
- Apply a layer of cream just enough, not too thick or too thin. If too little, the skin protection will not be good, too thick will cause pores to be sticky, counterproductive, can cause skin allergies.
- In particular, an extremely important note is that if you use sunscreen you should not use acne creams or treat certain skin problems.
Your skin will become brighter when you know how to take care and care every day and carefully protect yourself when you go out.
