When we check the magazine covers, we often wonder how most of the models and celebrities have those perfect, youthful, glowing skin on cover. We always wonder, how they were able to maintain or achieve that healthy looking skin on almost all occasions and seasons. One of the questions we ask is “What is their secret?”. Indeed, we usually wonder what their skincare routine is and try our luck by finding out what beauty products they personally choose so we can also start using them. Aside from eating the right food and proper exercise, they use sunscreen protection. One of the weird questions we may hear is, “Do we really need to apply sunscreen protection even if it is the winter season already?”.
Dermatologists will say a big YES when asked if we are still to use sunscreen protection even if it is during winter season. The climate will not be a basis to decide when to use it, it is the exposure to the sun’s rays, specifically the UV rays. These harmful rays are the main cause why ageing becomes a growing concern for most people. Choosing the right SPF will prevent it from further damaging your skin.
Sun Protection Factor or SPF products vary from 4 up to 50+. Normally, dermatologists recommend to use no less than SPF15 if there is less exposure time to UV rays. In fact, these numbers would determine how long the product can protect you from sunburn. It is the time spent, not the measurement of how effective the SPF level is. SPFs 30 to 50 are suggested to those people who want to have a safe level of having sun-damaged skin or wrinkles.
