Sunscreen/Sunblock

“Why correct, if you don’t protect.”

 

SPF stands for Sun Protection Factor. The number indicates how long you can be in sun exposure before you burn, so a SPF 15 gives you fifteen times longer in the sun than no sunscreen.

Sunscreens are chemical, where as sun block are physical with broader spectrum blocking UVA and UVB and contain titanium oxide or zinc.

Ninety percent of premature aging is sun related. The left side of your face, which is your driver’s side, has the most damage for example larger pores; more lines, wrinkle and age spots. The First thing one need to commit to should one wish to correct and prevent future damage is wearing a sun block on a daily basis.

One needs to liberally apply sunscreen head to toe. It is always best to use a cream or lotion with a SPF instead of it being in your makeup.  Face, neck, shoulders, décolleté, ears most importantly. Apply 20 minutes before sun exposure. Weather its states sweat proof or waterproof, use rule of thumb reapply it.
