Use Sunscreens On Your Face & Body

A good SPF protects your skin from the sun's rays, and works with your skin to protect it without making you break out in spots. Many of the sun lotions and creams can be used on your skin all over, but some are formulated as sunscreens for your body or face – facial sun lotions tend to be lighter as your face has more delicate skin.

All you need to know about Sunscreens

Here we answer some of the frequently asked questions about sunscreens and sun protection. If you aren't sure what you need or which sunscreen to choose, take a look at the advice below.

Should I wear sunscreen every day?

The short answer is yes, you should wear sunscreen every day. Sunscreen helps protect your skin from premature ageing, skin cancer and sunburn. Some moisturisers also have SPF in their formula, so you can get sun protection for your face and body automatically when you apply your usual skincare products. When swimming, apply sunscreen every time you get out of the water.

What happens if you don't use sunscreen? 

If you don't use sunscreen, UV rays can cause skin damage and will prematurely age your skin by damaging the collagen and connective tissue of your skin. Without sunscreen, you can get skin damage and will also be at a greater risk of developing skin cancer. Sun protection is important even if you are inside near windows, as the sun's damaging rays can pass through glass.

What is the best sunscreen?

The best sunscreen to choose is one that protects your skin as much as possible from the sun's rays. Specifically, when selecting your sunscreen, you should look for one labelled 'broad spectrum', as this will protect you from UVB and UVA rays. UVB rays often cause sunburn, while UVA rays damage your skin cells and prematurely age them, which can lead to skin cancer. 

What factor sunscreen should I use?

Ideally, you should use SPF50. You should choose a high SPF as this determines the amount of UVB light that your sunscreen prevents from passing through. You should always choose an SPF of at least 30, which should generally block out around 97% of UVB rays. If you are going to be exposed to the sun all day long, select a sunscreen with an even higher SPF like a factor 50. Remember that no sunscreen can block 100% of the sun's rays.
