New Delhi, 20th May 2021: It is no news that the sun’s ultraviolet (UV) radiation can adversely impact the skin. So, the skin needs to be protected from it at all costs. As you know, ultraviolet rays are not visible to the naked eye because of their short wavelengths. To get into the specifics, there are mainly two rays – UVA and UVB rays – out of all the UV rays that seriously harm humans by tampering with the DNA of skin cells and thus causing skin cancer. Shahnaz Husain can help you cut through the jargon and understand everything about the SPFs and select the ideal kind of sun protection cream for the face.
The amount of UVB protection that you get from the sunscreens is highlighted by their SPF number; in other words, it gives an idea about the time taken by UV radiation to redden your skin after applying the sunscreen as directed versus the time taken without application. If the label says "broad spectrum," it means that the product can protect against UVA and UVB rays. With the SPF number 30, 3% of the UVB rays can penetrate your skin, while SPF 50 means 2% of the rays can pass through. In a laboratory with ideal conditions, a higher SPF ensures relatively minimal damage as compared to a lower SPF; however, in actuality, higher SPF products trigger a false sense of security, causing people to stay out in the sun without any hat or shade. As a result, they tend to catch more of the UV damage. SPF 50 is not an excellent option for people with a history of skin cancer or genetic diseases or those who want to go on a trip to high altitudes. It is recommended to apply two tablespoons of sunscreen 30 minutes before stepping outside the house and apply it again every 2 hours or instantly after you are done swimming or sweating.
Sunscreens with high SPF have proven to be effective in a laboratory; however, they may not be your savior in real life. Using natural products for skin in India where there is so much heat and other methods like covering up your face with a cloth, a hat, and sunglasses can provide you the necessary protection from the harmful UV rays of the sun.
