In India, summers are known to be scorching, hot, and harsh. Whether we are heading out or just staying indoors, no matter what our age is, we must take care of our skin regularly to maintain its health in these rough conditions and one thing that’s absolutely important is wearing sunscreen. Sunscreen is a non-negotiable all year round, for all skin types and for all age groups. Keep reading to know why you should start using the best sunscreen in India that will keep your skin looking younger for longer.

Importance of sunscreen

Dermatologists have been talking about using sunscreen for a long time for several reasons, here are a few of them below.

UV Rays - The sun gives off rays of light that can help and harm us, known as ultraviolet (UV) rays. There are two different types of UV rays that reach out to the earth's surface i.e. UVA, and UVB. These radiations are a part of the natural energy produced by the sun but are so much harsh that they affect the skin, accelerate skin disorders, and damage it in a variety of ways. So be sure to select the best sunscreen for face according to your skin type and sunscreen lotion for your body and apply it religiously, after using a moisturizer.

Premature Aging - In fact, most of the skin changes associated with aging are avoidable. And most of them are due to one cause: sun damage. We all love having skin that is free from wrinkles and fine- lines. To prevent early skin aging, one should start using sunscreen to reduce the chances of developing aging signs by 24%, below the age of 55. Also, when you are outdoors, swimming, or having a long sun exposure do not forget to reapply the product to your face every couple of hours to protect yourself better.

Skin Cancer - We all protect our skin from the sun to protect ourselves from premature aging, tanning, or hyperpigmentation but there are many health benefits to the practice too. Protecting your skin from the sun can also prevent skin cancer. Following just a simple skincare routine like cleansing your face with a face washmoisturizing it before stepping out, and most importantly applying sunscreen daily and religiously, you are not just protecting your skin but also saving your health too.

Consider SPF (Sun Protection Factor)

SPF is a term used to measure the amount of UVB light that sunscreen can filter out. Using sunscreen with an SPF of 30,40,50,80 or more will help protect your skin against UV exposure. A sunscreen with a broad-spectrum SPF of 30 or more will effectively protect your skin from sun damage and sunburn.

Sunscreen Formulation

Formulation refers to the delivery format of the sunscreen. This will decide how the product looks and feels on the skin. Fixderma offers a wide range of Shadow Sunscreen suitable for every skin type.

When To Apply Sunscreen?

Apply Fixderma sunscreen 20 to 30 minutes prior to stepping out in the sun. This time gap will help your skin to absorb the sunscreen without washing it off as you sweat. Applying sunscreen if you wear hats, or protective clothing, or work outdoors is essential. Reapplying sunscreen is a must after long exposure, heavy exercise, or swimming activities as excessive sweating can wash off your sunscreen. Now that you know everything about sunscreen and sun protection, remember to always sun protect your skin!

  1. Why do you have to wait 20 minutes after putting on sunscreen?
    You need to give it time to dry to get absorbed into the skin and form a uniform film. Here's how it works: when you apply sunscreen on your face, some of the product evaporates, leaving a thin layer of UV filters on your face. This film-forming process takes about 15-20 minutes so that it can provide complete protection and does not melt with sweat.
  2. What is SPF?
    SPF, or Sun Protection Factor, measures how much solar energy is required to cause a sunburn when you’re wearing sunscreen compared with unprotected skin. A sunscreen with an SPF of 30, when used as directed, prevents 97 percent of UVB rays. SPF 50 blocks 98 percent. It’s important to remember that higher SPFs offer more protection. No matter how much broad-spectrum of sunscreen you are applying you need to reapply them every after 2 hours.
  3. Should you apply sunscreen before or after a moisturizer?
    Moisturizing is an important step in the skincare routine but applying sunscreen in the daytime is a must before stepping out, regardless of how lengthy your morning routine currently is. One should always apply sunscreen after moisturizer. It should be the last step in your skincare routine, just before you put your makeup on.
  4. What is the difference between chemical and physical sunscreens?
    Chemical sunscreen absorbs sun’s rays. Ingredients in chemical sunscreen are oxybenzone, octinoxate, avobenzone, homosalate, octisalate, and octorylene. These sunscreens are easy to rub into the skin and do not leave a white cast on face.
    Physical sunscreen act as a shield. It sticks on the skin’s surface and deflects sun’s rays.  These sunscreens contain ingredients like titanium dioxide or zinc oxide. This sunscreen suits best on sensitive skin. Depending in the formulation, this sunscreen may or may not leave a white cast.
  5. How much sunscreen should I use?
    Apply enough sunscreen to cover all your sun exposed areas. Usually, people prefer 3 finger rule when applying sunscreen.
  6. How often should I apply Fixderma Sunscreen?
    If you stay outdoors for long hours, apply it every 2 hours. Especially after swimming or sweating. Do not forget to protect your lips too. Apply a lip balm with SPF 30 or higher to protect lip pigmentation.
