9 Great Sunblocks to Protect Your Newly Tightened Skin Under the Sun
One of the greatest enemies of the skin is the sun’s ultraviolet rays. Having a procedure to tighten your skin or going through a regimen to lessen wrinkles and signs of aging will be of no avail if you sashay out into the sunshine without protection. It’s not only wasteful, it’s foolish. Here are 9 great sunblocks you should consider including in your arsenal of skin care products to protect your newly tightened skin under the sun.
In case you didn’t know, “SPF” stands for sun protection factor. Products with SPF protects the sun from 92% of the damaging rays of the sun. The higher the SPF rating, the longer the protection against ultraviolet B (UVB) or the short-wave rays of the sun, which is what we know to cause sun damage to the skin. Another type, the UVA (the long-wave rays), is still poorly understood by science in terms of protection, but there is an ongoing effort at developing an effective screen for it. We chose products with at least SPF 30 for longer protection.
