A Spray of Protection
It’s summer again, and with the FDA bolstering its crusade against skin cancer, the need to wear sunscreen is more pressing than ever. If you’re one of the several people confounded by the numerous options for sunscreen in the market, don’t worry, there are only a few keywords that you must remember. First, look for a product that offers broad-spectrum protection, or one that protects against UVA (causes early skin aging) and UVB (causes sunburn and skin cancer) rays. Second, only sunscreens with SPF 15 or higher (50 at most) can make claims about reducing skin cancer risk when used as directed. Third, there’s no such thing as a waterproof sunscreen, only water-resistant ones—and even those should be reapplied every 2 to 3 hours.
If your sunscreen at least meets these qualifications, then you’re good to go. But if you can, why not opt for a sunscreen that does so much more—like Glytone Sunscreen Spray Mist SPF 50? This light and non-whitening sunscreen adheres to skin better and penetrates quicker than most sunscreens. But more than that, this sunscreen contains antioxidants, giving you unbeatable protection against free radicals too. If you have sensitive or acne-prone skin, you’ll love the fact that it’s non-comedogenic and oil- and fragrance-free. Plus, it comes in a spray bottle for easy application wherever you are, and in a water-resistant formula ideal for outdoor activities.
The quest for the perfect sunscreen need not be daunting. With a brand like Glytone, manufacturer of one of the most successful lines of glycolic acid-based products, you can expect nothing less than maximum sun protection and a healthy, youthful skin.
