Sunlight and its UVA rays are factors whose effects on the skin will always be present, as the face is the only part of our body that is always uncovered. For this reason, if you want to preserve a young skin, you need to use creams and lotions with SPF.
Face sunscreen has to have a higher SPF than body sunscreen because the facial area is much more sensitive. During the most intensive hours of sunlight the skin is more likely to get burnt, therefore it is essential to choose the right type of sunscreen that suits your skin type and apply at least 20 mins before getting out.
In case you are going to the beach or the pool, it is recommended to apply after bathing despite being a waterproof sunscreen. Also, once you are back home, after sun is fundamental to rehydrate skin and regenerate cells, as it also relieves pain in case you have got sun burnt. In this regard, those with aloe vera are ideal for such situations.
