Most of us know how important it is to wear SPF every day. Sunscreen is the most effective way to protect your skin from sun damage, early signs of aging and even skin cancer. You may also know to look for a broad-spectrum formulation, meaning it protects from both UVA and UVB rays.
But what is the real difference between sunscreen options and what are the best most effective ingredients to look for? Let's break it down.
A physical sunscreen (sometimes called mineral sunscreen or broad-spectrum) uses minerals such as zinc oxide or titanium dioxide to deflect UV rays away from the skin. These formulations literally sit on the skin and block or scatter UV radiation before it can penetrate the skin.
Chemical sunscreens contain chemical compounds that absorb UV rays. These chemical compounds include formulas like oxybenzone, octinoxate, octisalate and avobenzone. These chemicals change UV rays into heat, which is then released from the skin and scattered.
Regardless of what kind of sunscreen you choose to use, the most important factor is that you use it daily and when you are outdoors, remember to reapply after sweating, swimming or every 2 hours.
