Summer is here, and with it good weather and outdoor plans. We always advise to protect yourself from the sun’s rays throughout the year, specially at this time of the year when we must pay more attention to taking care of our skin and avoiding burns and problems.
Sunbathing in moderation can be very beneficial for the body. When exposed to its rays, our skin generates vitamin D, which helps better absorption of calcium. Experts say that 10-15 minutes a day is enough, but it is important to prepare the skin properly.
The skin on your face and the rest of the body require different sunscreens. In the same way that you use a specific soap to wash your face, a good facial sunscreen has to be a must in your daily routine.
The second basic tip is a reminder for those of us who love to tan: progressively it is always better. Each skin has its own rhythm, we do not all tan at the same rate.
People with darker skin or an easy tan tendency tend to believe that they do not need protection. This is a big mistake, although the skin shows no obvious signs such as redness when burning, it suffers as well. Good protection can help you get the perfect tan without damaging your skin.
Finally, we would like to remind you that the SPF number (sun protection factor) is indicative of the time that the product protects your skin. For example, SPF 30 does not “protect more” than SPF 15, but it does it for a longer time.
At KŌNSE Beauty we know how difficult it can be to find the right sun protection, and that is why we have prepared a complete guide with the our recommendations for best natural facial and body sunscreens of 2021.
