You may have heard the term "SPF" in relation to sunscreens, but what exactly does it mean and why is it so important? Today we're bringing you some facts about SPF and the ingredients in sunscreens to give you a clearer picture of the products that help protect your skin.  We'll help you get your hands on the best sunscreen next time you go shopping.

 SPF stands for Sun Protection Factor. The SPF value shows how long sunscreen protects your skin when applied in the right amount and at the right intervals, several times a day.  

When choosing the best sunscreen, pay attention to the factor number

🌞 SPF values usually start at 15 and go up to 100. It is important to understand that increasing the SPF value does not increase protection in a linear fashion. For example, a sunscreen with SPF 15 provides about 93% protection against UVB rays, while SPF 30 provides about 97% protection.  

🧪 The SPF value depends not only on the ingredients, but also on the way the sunscreen is applied and the skin type. In addition, sunscreens usually contain ingredients such as zinc oxide or titanium dioxide, which provide physical protection against UV rays.  

🌸Consider your skin type and any problems you may have. If you have sensitive skin, choose a sunscreen specifically formulated for sensitive skin or one with a hypoallergenic label. For oily skin, choose lightweight, oil-free or gel-based formulas. Dry skin may benefit from a moisturising sunscreen.

Quality ingredients are essential for the best sunscreens

If you're swimming or doing activities that involve sweating, consider using a waterproof sunscreen. Choose a product labeled "water resistant" and check the stated duration of water resistance (usually 40 or 80 minutes).

In addition to SPF, it's important to consider the moisturising ingredients in sunscreens. These ingredients help keep skin hydrated when exposed to the sun or water.  

Using sunscreens based on the SPF value and tailored to your skin type can help prevent sunburn, reduce skin damage and keep your skin healthy.
