A brightening sunscreen SPF 40 or higher is a must-have in your summer skincare routine and you already know how well it protects your skin from photo-aging, hyperpigmentation and skin cancer. But, do you really understand everything about wearing sunscreen for the face?
Because even the most dedicated skincare enthusiasts can get confused about how much, how often, and when to apply sunscreen, we have pulled together a few tips after discussing with our dermatologists to tell you how to wear sunscreen the right way. Let’s get started.
Pick a Sunscreen with 40 or more SPF
The American Academy of dermatology and our dermatologist recommended wearing sunscreen with an SPF of at least 40 or more. They also recommended opting for a sunscreen with broad-spectrum effects which means it protects your skin against both UVA and UVB rays.
Go ahead to choose CIEL Brightening Sunscreen SPF 40, a broad-spectrum sunscreen that is hundred percent free of minerals. It is formulated in a way so it won’t clog pores on sensitive and acne-prone skin.
Dry your Sunscreen before swimming
Water-resistant sunscreens are highly beneficial when you are participating in any kind of water activity. However, it is crucial to apply the sunscreen at least 30 minutes before getting wet so that your sunscreen gets enough time to dry.
Re-apply your Sunscreen every two hours
Make sure to apply sunscreen every two hours because it wears off easily, especially when it is exposed to outside elements such as chlorine, pool, and saltwater exposure. If you forget to apply your sunscreen, make sure to set a timer on your phone so that you can easily remember.
Wear Sunscreen at home too
You probably already know that glass and windows do not ever block UVA rays. The ultraviolet rays are majorly responsible for causing premature signs of aging such as wrinkles, freckles, sunspots, and more. The same goes for rainy or cloudy days. So whether you are working from home all day or the sky is covered in clouds, you always need to protect your skin with a sunscreen with SPF of more than 40.
You probably have covered all the right ways to wear sunscreen so do not forget to check out our CIEL brightening sunscreen SPF 40 and give it a try.
