What you need to know before you buy sunscreen

How much time do you spend choosing sunscreen? What is most important to you when you buy it, packaging, fragrance, brand or protection factor? Here are a few important things to know before you buy sunscreen.

The time of year has arrived when we spend more time outside, temperatures are high, and the sun’s rays are getting stronger and stronger. If you listen carefully to the doctor’s advice, then you know at what time of day you should not spend too much time outside, because then the sun’s rays are strongest, as if you do not go out in the sun without sunscreen. What you need to know is that sunscreens contain many ingredients that are unknown to us and most of them are in some way poisonous, so you should carefully choose the appropriate sunscreen and do not regret the money when it comes.


Use mineral-based creams. Check three times whether the cream you are using is mineral or chemical based. The key ingredient that your cream should contain is zinc oxide or titanium oxide because these are the substances that provide the best protection and do not interfere with the secretion of hormones. The ingredient that should by no means be in your cream is oxybenzone and avoid all products where it is found.

Use makeup with a sun protection factor. If you do not spend too much time exposed to the sun during the day, it is not necessary to constantly apply sunscreen, but make sure that your daily cosmetics you use, from creams to lip balms, powders and lipsticks, contain a sun protection factor. Almost all decorative and preparative cosmetics can be found with a sun protection factor, so make sure you buy only such cosmetics during the summer.

Don’t buy creams with a protection factor over 50. more than 50 can’t and all over is just attracting attention and good marketing and so don’t get stuck. There is a slight difference between protection factor 50 and 100.

Avoid sunscreen sprays. During the application of the spray cream, you can unknowingly inhale a certain amount, which is not recommended at all, so avoid such sprays, especially for children. On the other hand, such creams are much rarer and may not provide adequate protection. Stick to good, old, proven creams that are thick and should be rubbed well.
