What is a Sunscreen and Why is it Needed?
Sunscreen also commonly known as sun screen, sunblock, suntan lotion, sunburn cream, sun cream or block out is a topical product that absorbs sun’s harmful ultraviolet (UV) radiation on the skin. Hence sunscreens help protect against sunburn or sun damage and can even be used as an anti aging cream.
Excess exposure to the sun without proper sun protection may lead to faster aging skin. As a Nutritionist I understand that while interaction with the sun is good for our skin (due to Vitamin D production and sun’s anti bacterial effects), however too much sun exposure can lead to sun burn or aging skin including leathery skin, wrinkles, fine lines and dark spots. Therefore, having the right sun protection that is all natural and chemical free is essential.
What does SPF Stand for? What do you mean by SPF?
SPF stands for Sun Protection Factor. SPF in a natural oil or butter measures a sunscreen’s ability to prevent UVB damaging on the skin. The reason people care about SPF because it protects against damage longer is the base contains SPF rich oils or butter. For example, If it takes 20 minutes to start turning red or burn an unprotected and exposed skin then using an SPF 15 sunscreen theoretically will prevent reddening or burning 15 times longer. Note that SPF does not mean to indicate the amount of protection. It indicates how long will it take for the skin to redden or burn when a particular product is applied, as compared to unprotected skin.
