Misha Omar and her son, Adam: “I love that it doesn’t irritate skin, especially having to wear it for long hours while knowing that it offers complete 360-degree protection for my son.”
Caring for your child’s skin with protection from sunscreen is vital, but what you don’t know about the ingredients may be just as harmful for their skin. Shiseido’s Dr. Kazutaka Sasaki clues us in on what to look out for when choosing a sunscreen. The SPF value indicates the level of UVB protection. A higher SPF number equals higher protection while the PA value indicates the level of protection from UVA rays and is rated +, ++, or +++.
Regardless how high the protection of your sunscreen is, it is still important to avoid prolonged sun exposure and to reapply your sunscreen frequently.
Highly waterresistant sunscreens are normally hard to remove with regular cleansers. Strongly scrubbing skin to remove sunscreen or not removing it thoroughly can both be a burden to the skin.
Normally, non- chemical sunscreens of middle to high SPF contain a lot of physical sunscreen agents (white- coloured powder) for the UV protection effect.
