It's that time of year! I know I don't need to tell you how important it is to protect your skin, but here are a few tips to think about.
There's a difference between sunscreens and sunblocks. For example, sunscreens usually contain ingredients that absorb UV rays, where as sunblocks are made to actually block them. It is recommended to apply sunscreens about 15 to 30 minutes before going out in the sun.
Sunblocks usually 'reflect' UV light and typically start working immediately with no waiting period. Sunblocks are also known to be friendlier to sensitive skin. It is recommended to use at least an SPF 30.
So enjoy the sunshine! (Safely). :-)
