What is the recommended SPF for fair skin?
Fair skin is more susceptible to sunburn, so it's recommended to use a sunscreen with a minimum SPF of 30 or higher for adequate protection. Higher SPF levels provide increased protection against harmful UV rays.
How often should I reapply sunscreen?
To maintain effective protection, it is advisable to reapply sunscreen every two hours, especially if you are exposed to sunlight for a prolonged period or engage in activities that cause sweating or swimming. Reapplication is crucial to ensure continuous protection.
Can I use tanning products on sensitive skin?
Yes, there are tanning products available specifically formulated for sensitive skin. Look for products that are hypoallergenic, fragrance-free, and dermatologist-tested to minimize the risk of irritation. It's always recommended to perform a patch test before applying a new product.
Do tanning products provide protection against UV rays?
Tanning products primarily work to enhance the appearance of a tan but do not provide significant protection against UV rays. It is essential to use a separate sunscreen with adequate SPF alongside tanning products to ensure proper sun protection.
Are there any organic sunscreen options?
Yes, we offer a variety of organic sunscreen options that are free from harmful chemicals and use natural ingredients. These sunscreens are gentle on the skin while providing reliable protection against UV rays. Look for products with certifications such as organic or natural to ensure their authenticity.
Can I tan without using sunscreen?
While it is possible to tan without using sunscreen, it is not recommended due to the potential harm caused by UV rays. Sunscreen helps protect your skin from sunburn, premature aging, and the risk of skin cancer. It is always best to use sunscreen, even when aiming for a tan.
How long does it take for a sunscreen to start working?
Once applied, sunscreen starts working immediately to protect your skin from the sun's harmful rays. However, it is advisable to apply sunscreen at least 15 to 30 minutes before sun exposure to allow it to fully absorb into the skin.
Can I use sunscreen under makeup?
Yes, it is recommended to apply sunscreen as the first step in your skincare routine, even before applying makeup. Allow the sunscreen to fully dry before applying other products. Look for lightweight sunscreens that are suitable for layering under makeup.
