Sun Protection Brands
Enjoy the sun without the damage
As the body's largest organ, our skin needs to be well protected in order to stay hydrated and moisturized - especially when it's exposed to the sun. UVA and UVB are two types of well-publicized and destructive sunrays that have been blamed for causing not only sunburns, but also wrinkles and even skin cancer. Due to our better understanding of the risks and dangers associated with the sun's harmful rays, sunblocks and sunscreens have become increasingly important skin care products.

There are two kinds of sunblocks on the market - chemical and physical sunblocks. Chemical sunblocks absorb the sun's UV rays; while physical sunblocks reflect, scatter, block or absorb the sun's harmful rays. Sunblocks are available in lotions, creams, gels and sprays. In addition to sunblocks, sun protection products also include tanning lotions, after sun care, sunless tanners and sunscreen - specifically made for the lips and face.
Remember that the sun can do severe invisible damage to your skin, so it's important to wear sun protection whenever you spend time in the sun. Even if you don't burn, your skin will benefit from a light UV protection. This way you'll will still get a gentle bronzing, but prevent sunburn and over-drying from direct sun exposure.
