Living in a tropical region, sun exposure is something we can hardly avoid. Some people may be more exposed to the sun than others, due to lifestyle choices and occupation that influence our daily activities. But whether you are heavily exposed to the sun or not, sun care should be an integral part of your routine. Here's what you need to know about about sun care:
1. Sunscreen should be worn every day, rain or shine
That's right -- we should all wear sunscreen every day, even when we're indoors and even when it's raining or cloudy. This is because UV rays are always present. UV rays also have wavelengths that are long and intense enough to penetrate clouds, windows, and even curtains (unless they're the blackout kind). But of course, you may not need to wear so much sunscreen indoors, especially if you don't spend a lot of time near windows.
When outdoors, its recommended to use two fingers' worth of sunscreen. This should give your skin enough protection to prevent early signs of aging and burning, which can cause irritation and damage in the long run.
2. Use at least SPF30 sunscreen
Suntella UV Milk SPF50+ PA++++ is the perfect everyday sunscreen, providing broad spectrum protection while feeling comfortable and making the skin look good.
SPF30 provides just enough protection to the skin against premature aging effects and sunburn. It is recommended that you wear at least SPF30 on a daily basis.
In choosing your daily sunscreen, you want something that offers good protection and is comfortable too. Suntella UV Milk SPF50+ PA++++ was tested in-vitro and in-vivo to make sure you can wear it confidently because it provides the needed protection. The satin finish also feels like a second skin, and the tone-up effect gives your skin a healthy, radiant look.
3. Apply sunscreen on hands, neck, and ears
While we tend to pay attention to our face, we can sometimes forget to apply sunscreen on our hands, neck, and ears. These parts are equally exposed to the sun and should be protected too. The skin on our ears is especially sensitive, so make sure to cover that area!
4. Sunscreen should be reapplied every 2 hours
If you're indoors all day, this may not be necessary. However, if you spend a lot of time outdoors and are exposed to the sun, you should reapply sunscreen every 2 hours.
This is because the intensity of the sun and its UV rays get higher towards the middle of the day. If you applied sunscreen in the morning, you may need more protection in the afternoon when the UV index is higher. Moreover, sunscreen may be removed when we sweat and become less effective in protecting our skin over time. So, remember to reapply!
5. After-sun care is equally important
You want to make sure you take care of your skin after you've been exposed to the sun, especially for longer periods of time. To do this, you should look for soothing and repairing products to help calm your skin and maintain optimal skin health and appearance.
Skintella Repairing Serum soothes and calms the skin after sun exposure and helps maintain healthy skin.
Skintella Repairing Serum helps to soothe and calm irritated skin and maintain skin health too. If you suffer from sunburn, this serum is your best friend! But you don't have to wait until your skin is damaged to take care of it. You can use this serum as a preventive measure too.
Skintella Moisturizing Gel strengthens the skin to protect against further damage and irritation.
Exposure to the sun can also make our skin dry. You'll need a moisturizer that can repair and strengthen your skin at the same time, like Skintella Moisturizing Gel. This moisturizer will also help you maintain your skin's health to prevent further damage and irritation.
