Sunscreen Cheat Sheet Pt 1

There is just so much information about sunscreen that it can become confusing and overwhelming. So, here is Part 1 of the Sunscreen Cheat Sheet to help you learn more about sunscreen ๐Ÿค— โ˜€๏ธ๐—ง๐—ต๐—ฒ ๐—œ๐—บ๐—ฝ๐—ฎ๐—ฐ๐˜ ๐—ผ๐—ณ ๐—จ๐—ฉ ๐—ฅ๐—ฎ๐˜†๐˜€ ๐—˜๐˜…๐—ฝ๐—ผ๐˜€๐˜‚๐—ฟ๐—ฒ There is no doubt that over-exposure to these UV rays can lead to skin cancer, photoaging and skin pigmentation issue. Excessive UV exposure can also harm the eyes and dampen the immune system. โ˜€๏ธ๐—ฃ๐—ต๐˜†๐˜€๐—ถ๐—ฐ๐—ฎ๐—น ๐˜ƒ๐˜€ ๐—–๐—ต๐—ฒ๐—บ๐—ถ๐—ฐ๐—ฎ๐—น ๐—ฆ๐˜‚๐—ป๐˜€๐—ฐ๐—ฟ๐—ฒ๐—ฒ๐—ป If you have sensitive skin, opt for physical sunscreen. Otherwise, choose one that works best with your budget, skin type (oily/dry) and skin concerns. โ˜€๏ธ๐—จ๐—ฉ๐—” & ๐—จ๐—ฉ๐—• SPF mainly indicates the level of UVB protection whereas sunscreen star rating and PA indicate the level of UVA protection. Look for sunscreen that provides broad spectrum protection with โ‰ฅSPF30 to ensure adequate protection! ๐—ช๐—ฎ๐˜†๐˜€ ๐˜๐—ผ ๐—š๐—ฎ๐˜‚๐—ด๐—ฒ ๐˜๐—ต๐—ฒ ๐—œ๐—ป๐˜๐—ฒ๐—ป๐˜€๐—ถ๐˜๐˜† ๐—ผ๐—ณ ๐—ฆ๐˜‚๐—ป ๐—˜๐˜…๐—ฝ๐—ผ๐˜€๐˜‚๐—ฟ๐—ฒ UV index is a convenient way to gauge how aggressive one should protect themself from the sun at a particular time of the day.Another great tip is the shadow rule, if your shadow is shorter than your height, seek shade! โ˜€๏ธ๐—ฆ๐—ฃ๐—™ ๐—ถ๐—ป ๐—–๐—ต๐—ถ๐—น๐—ฑ๐—ฟ๐—ฒ๐—ป In children younger than 6 months old, avoid using sunscreen! Instead, keep them in the shade and dress them in sun-protective clothing (eg: wide-brimmed hats and sunglasses). Physical sunscreens are preferred in children as they are less sensitizing! โ˜€๏ธ๐—ฉ๐—ถ๐˜๐—ฎ๐—บ๐—ถ๐—ป ๐—— There is currently no accepted โ€˜optimalโ€™ level of vitamin D. The sun is indeed the main source of Vitamin D but sunbathing is definitely NOT required; incidental sunlight exposure is often sufficient in light skinned people.Vitamin D can also be sourced from the food we eat. Guidelines on Vitamin D supplements differ per country and best to seek advice from your local doctor โœจ Did you find this helpful?

Wow, how informative! Thank you, dr. Crystal Lee! I learned a lot from you. I personally prefer physical sunscreens since my skin is quite sensitive. Definitely, I'm looking forward to the next part! โค

The infographic you have is just soooo pretty yet still holds a lot of information! ๐Ÿ’• I love the details like adding images, it makes the posts so much more appealing and enjoyable rather than having a never ending text. The ingredients table is a very Clever idea! Finally have them All together ๐Ÿ˜…๐Ÿ™ˆ๐Ÿ’• Lots of love!! ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ’•
