Sunscreen can fight the signs of aging and protect us from skin cancer, but unless it's applied correctly, it may not be effective. According to the American Academy of Dermatology, there are three important tips to follow when applying sunscreen. Be sure to follow these guidelines for your best protection.
- Choose a sunscreen that has an SPF of 30 or higher that provides broad-spectrum coverage. SPF, Sunscreen Protection Factor, is a measure of a sunscreen's ability to prevent UVB from damaging the skin. Since SPF 30 keeps out 97% of all incoming rays, it's a good choice for daily wear. Brush on Block is a broad-spectrum SPF 30 mineral powder sunscreen that is safe and effective for everyone, including children. Brush on Block has no chemical sunscreen ingredients, so it won't irritate sensitive skin. It's also portable so you can take it on-the-go for quick touch-ups.
- Apply sunscreen generously before heading outdoors. You can apply Brush on Block under or over makeup each morning. It's important to cover your entire face, ears, neck, and hair part while indoors so you can be sure to do a thorough job. If you wait until you are in the sun to apply it, you may miss spots and get burned.
- Reapply sunscreen at least every two hours. If you've been swimming or sweating, you will want to reapply Brush on Block after you've dried off. Luckily, it won't run in or sting your eyes like traditional sunscreen can. The portable self-dispensing brush makes reapplication easy throughout the day. Just throw it in your bag or keep it in your pocket for easy access.
It is recommended that everyone over the age of six months wear sunscreen daily. Even if you work inside, or it is cloudy, you may be exposed to ultraviolet radiation for brief periods throughout the day. With Brush on Block, sunscreen can be applied and reapplied with ease.
