Long-term sun exposure can cause long-term harm to your skin and is one of the major causes of skin damage. The negative consequences of the strong sun rays include hyperpigmentation, sunburn, black spots & sunspots, and an increased risk of skin cancer, to name a few. Regardless of the season, a product with SPF or a sunscreen lotion should be part of your regular skincare regimen.
The SPF, or Sun Protection Factor, is a number that is applied to your sunscreen or other sun cream to signify the degree of sun protection it offers. Larger SPF products are more powerful and provide a higher proportion of protection. It’s a widespread misunderstanding that increasing the SPF by two would provide double the protection. With summer just around the bend, SPF is a must-have, and you should never leave the home without applying a substantial amount of sunscreen or any other SPF-containing lotion. Here’s a brief explanation to help you understand why SPF is important and how it protects you from sun damage.
Even while SPF is a must in the summer, it is as important to use throughout the other seasons. Sunscreen is one of the most frequent ways to protect your skin from the sun. During the winter and monsoons, you can use products with a lower SPF depending on the type of environment where you reside. If you’re going to be outside for a long time, reapply your sunscreen every two to three hours. If you’ve been sweating a lot or spending time in the water, reapply your SPF every one to two hours.
We hope that you now have a better grasp of SPF and why it is a must-have product in your daily skincare routine as a result of the information provided above. Now that summer has arrived, remember to look after your skin and protect it from the sun’s UV rays.
