We all know to use different SPF products for different occasions.

Matters needing attention

Buy sunscreen to pay attention to two indicators, one is SPF(Sun Protection Factor), sun protection index; One is water resistance.


SPF is designed based on the effect of a sunscreen on UVB rays, and although a high SPF number means that UVB rays are protected for a longer period of time, it does not mean that UVA rays are protected in the same way. If you need to protect against both UVA and UVB, you should consider buying a "broad spectrum" sunscreen. More and more attention is paid to the water resistance of sunscreens. Because sweat, sea water, swimming pool water and so on are all problems we have to face, for outdoor sports, tourism enthusiasts, sunscreen water resistance is very important. According to the American Academy of Dermatology, 1 SPF protects skin from sun damage for 10 minutes in the sun, so a sunscreen with SPF 15 can protect us for 150 minutes. Don't use sunscreen as sparingly as you would with an eye cream. Use a larger amount each time. Use sunscreen 30 minutes before going out into the sun (water) to allow the active ingredients to penetrate your face.
