Sun protection for the face and for sensitive skin

As the skin more sensitive to sun, often burns the nose, cheeks, forehead, and emerges pigmentation. Specially designed sunscreens for the face have a higher filter protectionthan those that are designed for the entire body.

Remember: the higher the level of protection (on the package the letters SPF), the longer you can stay in the sun. The figure shows how long you can sunbathe without harm to health. For example, if the SPF 30 in the sun can be up to 450 minutes, with SPF 20 — 300 minutes (1 step = 15 minutes).

Choosing sunscreen for the face, always keep in mind that it needs to be labeled SPF from 30 to 50. It must be applied 20-30 minutes before sun exposure. If you use other cosmetic products, sunscreen is used as a makeup base.

Be guided when choosing the creams, specifically designed for the face.

In sun face cream, reviews and tips often mention this, must necessarily be substances that protect the skin from rays: zinc oxide, titanium dioxide, avobenzone. Names may be written in English: zinc oxide, titanium dioxide, avobenzone.

Then all of a sudden the pharmacy I heard that the girl was offered a pencil to the face from Vichy, with a 50 factor of sun protection. It is the perfect solution for individuals: to apply, spread and protects. Now I will only use it. Lily”

For sensitive skin, as well as for the face, choose a sunscreen SPF 50, reviews suggest to buy the creams without fragrances – they will protect your skin from burns and will not cause irritation.

I grabbed the list and ran to the nearest pharmacy. But, to my regret, neither Vichy nor something from my “recommended list”, carefully selected from the Internet: Super Creme Solaire Visage SPF 30 Sisley and Chanel UV Essentiel SPF 50 – I are unable to offer. I reluctantly bought the Floor sunscreen (Sun Block for Face, Pola), reviews in 2008 about it, I have not seen anywhere else. It turned out that this is the perfect cream. All happy, even the price is lower than advertised in the products of leading companies (about 720 rubles). It not only protects your skin from the sun, but cares for her. Skin all day matte, not shiny. And in the water it does not roll and does not go away after you soak up the sun. Natalia”.
