Apply sunscreen to face and neck. UV rays can harm the skin even on cloudy or overcast days. Therefore, sunscreen should be worn 365 days a year, no matter what the weather is like outside.
UVA verses UVB Protection:
What does "UVA/UVB broad-spectrum protection" mean? Since sunscreen manufacturers will state that they offer"UVA/UVB" protection, consumers should at least be aware of what these terms mean and what service the products are providing. Broad-spectrum protection refers to wavelength. Basically, ultraviolet rays A & B have different wavelengths and they penetrate the atmosphere and our skin with a different intensity.
UVA sun rays make up the vast majority of ultraviolet light because they aren't absorbed by ozone. These rays penetrate deeply into the skin and produce the initial effects of sun tanning. UVB are less common and will not penetrate as deeply as UVA rays but yet they are considered the primary cause of sunburns and other serious skin conditions.
Skin cancer is the most common form of cancer and UV rays are responsible 90% of the time. UV rays don't just hit you once - they bounce off surfaces, like water, sand and even concrete sidewalks. Every sunburn puts you at a higher risk for skin cancer. Even if skin cancer is the worst case scenario, no one wants to age prematurely. No one wants wrinkles and no one wants dark spots. All of this is preventable.
What is the SPF Rating?
SPF stands for Sun Protection Factor and it is a measure that is made under laboratory settings. The higher the SPF, the more protection the sunblock provides. Sunscreen SPF ratings are great for comparisons between differnet products. But when used outside the laboratory (i.e. in the real world), SPF protection varies based on wind, sweating and abrasion (like sand). And if you don't use enough of it, the actual SPF can shrink.
Your skin needs protection from damaging UVA/UVB rays every single day, rain or shine.
This sunscreen relies on zinc oxide, which is a natural ingredient that becomes transparent as soon as you rub it into your skin.
It is rich with antioxidant Vitamins C & E. If you are very active, you'll be happy to know that Clean and Clear is highly water-resistant and lightweight. It is PABA-free, hypoallergenic and non-comedogenic so it is ideal if you have sensitive, oily and/or acne prone skin.
What's the difference between physical and chemical sunscreens?
Chemical suncreens are designed to absorb rays whereas physical sunblocks reflect them. The debate against chemical sunscreens stems from studies indicating that they do not absorb both types of ultraviolet rays (UVA and UVB). There are also health concerns that have been expressed over the use of the synthetic compounds found in chemical sunscreens. On the other hand this sunscreen relies on zinc oxide, which is a natural ingredient that becomes transparent as soon as you rub it into your skin. It will not leave a chalky whiteness.
