There are a lot of sunscreen products on the market that advertise themselves as the best or as offering full coverage. A lot of these products have attractive labels, but few of them offer the protection from the sun you need to keep your skin healthy.

When you are shopping for sunscreen, look for a product that offers an SPF of at least 30. These sunscreens block roughly 97% of the UV radiation emitted by the sun. You should also look for a sunscreen that offers broad-spectrum protection. The sun emits both UVA and UVB radiation, and broad-spectrum coverage will protect you from both.

It is important to apply sunscreen daily, even during the winter or when it’s cloudy outside. Practicing proper sun safety will ensure that your skin stay healthy and beautiful. If you have any skin concerns due to sun damage, please contact Skin Perfections Medical Spa to schedule an appointment.
