So many sunscreens, which one to buy?!

by Dr. Suzanne Gokel

Yes, there are many different brands of sunscreen! It can be overwhelming to pick one from all the different brands online and in stores. This article is to help you keep a few things in mind to make it simple. The key is to find one you like, that you will actually use.

To start, make sure to pick one with an SPF of 15 or higher. If you are going to be outdoors for a prolonged period, use sunscreen with an SPF of 30. Beyond that the higher levels of SPF are more chemicals without much more protection which we try to be mindful of.  The key to proper sun protection is reapplication. Regardless of SPF levels, all sunscreens should be reapplied in a generous amount over the skin, approximately every two hours when outdoors, even on cloudy days, and after swimming or sweating for maximum protection. 

Next what is important to you? While fragrance and color make things interesting, what you want is a sunscreen product that is easy to apply and use. Find a product that has a consistency that you like and doesn't delay you from your activities.

Different types of sunscreen may be easier to use on different body areas. Creams are best for those with dry skin, for the face and under make-up. Gels are good for hairy areas such as the scalp or a male chest and also it is more ideal when going into water or when sweating excessively after exercise or outdoor activities.

With this in mind, S2P brings two new Sunscreen products. We want you to experience our high quality products that maximize on ingredients, protection and usability. For those of you, who are active with exercise, in the sunny outdoors or with water activities, try our Silky Sunscreen Gel with an SPF 20 is a clear sunscreen that glides on effortlessly and repels water. This is a truly unique product formulated with antioxidants to protect against infrared rays and premature aging. For those of you with dry skin or that prefer a thicker sunscreen, try our broad spectrum, Moisturizing Sunscreen with Titanium Dioxide which provides both organic and mineral based sun blockers. Both sunscreens are made with Vitamin D to penetrate the skin even while we are blocking absorption from the sun.

Stay safe this summer whether in your backyard or while taking walks or swimming. Keep sunscreen in your car, beach bag and near the doorway when you leave home, so you remember to use it. The best sunscreen is going to be the one you actually use!
