It is time for vacations, many are already packing their bags and mentally lying on the beach 🙂 It seems to me that now more than ever is a selection of means to protect the skin from ultraviolet rays.
For various reasons, these cosmetic products caught my attention. But they are united by one thing – they are all designed using new technologies, the purpose of which is to protect the skin during prolonged exposure to the sun from various diseases (including cancer) and early aging, as well as to provide an even tan and necessary moisturizing.
Sun Protective Factor
When choosing a tool, it is important to pay attention to almost everywhere present designation SPF, which is an abbreviation of the phrase Sun Protective Factor or sun protection factor.
Next to the SPF is a number that indicates the degree of protection declared by the manufacturer. Of course, the higher this number, the greater the protective level.
Mistakes when using sunscreen
The most common mistake is the wrong application of a cosmetic product. Firstly, it should be applied to all parts of the body that are not covered by clothing. Secondly, the layer should not be too thin. According to the manufacturers, 200 ml of sunscreen should be enough for an average of 7 applications.
Another of the mistakes – the use of cream, spray, milk, left over from last year and have lost their original properties. According to European cosmetic standards, such products are stored for 36 months from the date of production, in the closed state.
If a particular product has already been used in the past year, then before using it, you should make sure that it is suitable. The tool should smell good, keep the same consistency and not become cloudy. Otherwise, it is worth refusing.
