The sun brings us vitality and joy, but it can also be harmful to our skin. Choosing the right sunscreen is essential to protect our skin from UV damage. At Farmacia Paseo del Mar, we know how important it is for you to take care of your skin, and today we present you with some tips on how to select the perfect sunscreen for you. Read on and discover how to protect your skin wisely!

Know your skin:

Every skin is unique, so it's essential to know your skin type before choosing a sunscreen. If you have dry skin, look for a moisturising and nourishing sunscreen. For oily skin, choose an oil-free formula to a

void clogging pores. If you have sensitive skin, opt for a sunscreen with gentle ingredients suitable for your delicate skin.

Adequate Sun Protection Factor (SPF):

SPF indicates the sunscreen's ability to protect you from UVB rays, which are responsible for sunburn. For most people, an SPF of 30 is sufficient, but if you have fair skin or are prone to sunburn, consider a higher SPF. Remember that SPF should not be the only measure of protection, and you should always apply enough sunscreen to ensure effective protection.

Broad spectrum protection:

Look for a broad-spectrum sunscreen that protects your skin from both UVB and UVA rays. UVA rays are responsible for premature skin ageing and can also cause long-term cell damage. Broad spectrum protection is essential for a complete defence against the harmful effects of the sun.

Water and sweat resistant:

If you plan to spend time in the water or engage in physical activities, choose a water- and sweat-resistant sunscreen for long-lasting protection. This will ensure your sunscreen remains effective even in humid conditions or excessive sweating.

Some sun creams contain additional ingredients, such as antioxidants or natural ingredients, which may offer additional benefits for your skin. Read labels and look for products that meet your specific needs.
