# BROAD SPECTRUM:-
All sunscreens give protection from UVB rays that are the main reason behind sunburns and skin cancers. But there are UVA rays as well that too can cause skin cancers and premature aging. Not all sunscreens protect from these. Only a few sunscreens pass this test and are allowed to be labeled as broad- spectrum.
#NON-WHITE CAST, MOISTURIZING, NON-STICKY:-
Let’s face it. Don’t you want a sunscreen which doesn’t make your face all sticky, dry and most of all make you look like a vampire. But luckily, there are sunscreens which manage to non-chalky, non-greasy.
SPF is the measure of UVB protection of the sunscreen. Before buying, make sure that the sunscreen is at least SPF30 or higher. The higher the SPF number, the better the protection against UVB rays.
Now, this is something that 90% of the sunscreen creams miss. The blue light rays from the devices and screens are equally harmful if not more. Hence, when you’re looking for your next SPF, make sure it protects you from the blue-light rays as well!
#NON- COMEDOGENIC AND HARMFUL CHEMICAL FREE:-
It’s simple. Go for sunscreen that lets your skin breathe instead of choking it. Talking of chemicals, all sunscreens have chemicals. You just need to watch out for the harmful ones.
