The Science of Sunscreen

by Uniqaya Lifestyle

Sunscreen is the only product that protects us from sun damage, delays the appearance of early signs of lines and wrinkles, lowers the risk of skin cancer, and acts immediately after application!

It's the best-kept beauty secret that isn't a secret at all. It is hands down the most essential product for keeping your skin looking young and healthy in the long run.

But several people do not use an adequate amount of sunscreen, which becomes the prime reason for unwanted sunburns and tanning that can happen even when sunscreen is used. To reach the Sun Protection Factor (SPF) indicated on a sunscreen package, one must apply approximately two milligrams of sunscreen per square centimeter of skin. In practice, this means to apply the amount of sunscreen equivalent to a shot glass (two teaspoons) to exposed regions of the face and body — a nickel-sized dollop to the face alone. If using a spray, it should be applied until the skin has an even sheen.

Another important point is to remember to reapply sunscreen after every two hours, or more often after heavy perspiration, swimming, or toweling off. Keep in mind that no matter how much sunscreen you apply, it won’t be enough if the SPF is not 15 or higher for effective protection, and ideally 30 or higher for extended outdoor time.

People frequently forget to apply sunscreen to the tips and backs of their ears, their exposed scalp, the rear of their neck, around their eyes, and the tops of their hands and feet. Applying sunscreen before getting clothed and then reapplying to all exposed skin is the best approach to ensure complete coverage. While applying sunscreen to the face, both the upper and lower lips must be covered.

The UVA and UVB rays emitted from the sun can prematurely age your skin causing age spots and wrinkles. The PA grading system in sunscreens indicates the level of protection from the UVA and UVB rays. So, the presence of more than three ‘+’ signs signifies that sunscreen provides the best protection. It also protects from sun damage, while also reducing fine lines, wrinkles and making your skin soft and supple.Blue light, a type of high-energy visible light, is emitted by several electronic devices. The blue light from these devices not only disrupts our sleep cycle but also damages our skin significantly.
