WHAT IS SPF SUNSCREEN?
SPF, or Sun Protection Factor, is a measure of how well a sunscreen will protect skin from UVB rays, the kind of radiation that causes sunburn, damages skin, and can contribute to skin cancer.
IMPORTANCE OF USING SUN PROTECTION FACTOR (SPF)
Sunscreen protects your skin from the sun’s harmful ultraviolet rays, which come in two forms – UVA and UVB rays. UVA rays are most commonly associated with skin aging; these beams cause fine lines, wrinkles, and age spots that make skin look prematurely older. UVA rays can pass through the glass, meaning your skin is exposed to them while you are driving and standing or sitting in front of windows with the blinds open. UVB rays are the ones most commonly associated with sunburns. Unlike UVA rays, UVB beams cannot pass through glass. Both UVA and UVB rays are carcinogens (cancer-causing), which is why you should invest in a sunscreen that offers broad-spectrum protection against both types.
How do I choose the right Sunscreen and SPF for Me?
It’s ideal to select a sunscreen that blocks enough UV rays to adequately protect your skin type.
Use the Sun Protection Factor Guide to help determine your skin type and appropriate SPF.

Sunscreen keeps your skin healthier in other ways as well. It protects sensitive skin against sunburn, and it reduces the appearance of sun damage – discolorations and dark spots, sagging or leathery skin, and wrinkles. These protections help your skin maintain a more even skin tone overall.
Even with all of these risks, many people still head out in the sun, and travel on a routine basis to work wearing nothing more than just scarves, handkerchiefs, or glares, thinking that it will protect them in the scorching heat; however, that doesn’t prevent them from getting tanned.
What can you do to protect yourself from these harmful rays and also from getting suntanned?
