How to Use Suncreen

Spending a pleasant time under the sun is a pleasant activity for many people. However, understanding the effects of sun rays on the skin and taking the right protection measures is extremely important for your skin health. Sun rays can have both positive and negative effects on our skin. There are two types of UV rays, especially UVB and UVA. UVB rays affect the upper layers of the skin and can cause sunburn. UVA rays penetrate deeper into the skin and can lead to premature aging. In addition, UVA rays can increase the risk of skin cancer.

Choosing Sunscreen

Choosing a sunscreen is one of the basic steps to protect your skin from the harmful effects of the sun. Here are some important factors for choosing the right sunscreen:

  • SPF (Sun Protection Factor): SPF is the most important factor to consider when choosing a sunscreen. SPF indicates the level of protection of your skin against UVB rays. The higher SPF you choose, the more your skin is protected. However, higher SPF does not always mean better. SPF 30 is usually a suitable option for daily use.
  • Broad Spectrum Protection: When choosing a sunscreen, take care to choose a "broad spectrum" product that protects against both UVB and UVA rays. While UVB rays cause sunburns, UVA rays can lead to premature aging of the skin.
  • Water and Sweat Resistance: If you are involved in water sports or sweat, it is important to choose a sunscreen with water and sweat resistance. Such products can help maintain the protection of your skin.
  • Selection for Your Skin Type: It is important to choose a sunscreen suitable for your skin type. If you have dry skin, you can choose a sunscreen with moisturising properties. If you have sensitive skin, it is better to choose a perfume-free and chemical-free product.
  • Ease of Reapplication: Sunscreen must be reapplied frequently, so it is important to choose a product that is easy to use. Those in spray or lotion form are usually easier.

What is SPF?

SPF (Sun Protection Factor) is a measure that determines the level of protection of the skin against UVB rays in sunscreen and similar products. The higher the SPF value, the longer the skin can be exposed to the sun. For example, a sunscreen with SPF 30 increases the protection against the sun 30 times. However, keep in mind that products with a high SPF are not always better and usually SPF 30 provides enough protection for daily use.

Tricks in Sunscreen Selection

  • Cleanse your skin and apply moisturiser before using sunscreen.
  • Shake well before applying sunscreen.
  • Pay particular attention to your face, neck, ears and hands, as these areas are more sensitive to the sun.
  • After applying sunscreen, reapply frequently, especially after swimming or sweating.
  • Avoid direct exposure to the sun when using sunscreen and take additional precautions such as hats and goggles.

The effects of sunscreen use on skin care are also important. Sunscreen can reduce the signs of premature aging while protecting your skin from the harmful effects of the sun. Sunscreens that emphasise anti-aging effects help your skin look young and healthy.

Understanding the effects of the sun on the skin and choosing the right sunscreen is critical to protecting your skin health.
