As a woman and dermatologist who loves applying sunscreen, I would advise readers to wear facial sunscreen daily. Sunscreen has numerous benefits to your body, skin, and face. It helps prevent aging signs of skin discoloration, lowers the risk of skin cancer, inflammation and protects your face from harmful UVB rays. Next time before you leave your house, ensure you put on facial sunscreen.

What to Consider When Shopping Based On Your Skin Type

Sunscreens are meant for people with oily, dry, or sensitive skin. Those with dry skin should go for face sunscreen that contains glycerin, lanolin, aloe, oil ingredients and avoid using facial sunscreen sprays with alcohol strains. People with oily skin should buy gel lotions and lightweight face sunscreens with isododecane compounds, while hypoallergenic, zinc oxide and fragrance-free products are ideal for sensitive skin.

What’s The Difference Between SPF 30 And 50

Sunscreen with SPF 50 can effectively protect the skin from damage by harmful ultra-violet rays up to 98%, while SPF 30 can prevent up to 96.8%.

What’s The Recommended SPF for Our Face

I recommend using face sunscreen with an SPF of 30 as they effectively prevent harmful effects of UV rays on the face.
