Sensitive Skin Safe Hypoallergenic Sunscreen: A Must for All Skin Types
Sunscreen is extremely important for all skin types, to help prevent skin cancer and aging skin. Applying sunscreen has been shown to reduce the risk of skin cancer by 50 percent. However, there is a lot of buzz about toxic ingredients in sunscreen, and rightly so. Everyone should consider their skin to be sensitive and focus on a safe hypoallergenic sensitive skin sunscreen that is free of irritating ingredients and fragrances.
Of course, there are many types of sunscreen to choose from, with most people focusing on the higher number SPF to maximize sun exposure. However, there is more to it than just the SPF number when it comes to choosing the best sensitive skin sunscreen.
Some ingredients have been reported to cause allergic reactions. Some of these ingredients include:
Sun Protection Factor (SPF)
- PABA (para-aminobenzoic acid)
The SPF indicates the amount of protection a sunscreen offers against UVB, which is the ultraviolet radiation that causes sunburn. According to the American Cancer Society, sunscreen is recommended in order to prevent skin cancer, specifically squamous cell and basal cell carcinoma. The problem is that many sunscreens do not block the harmful rays of the sun known as UVA radiation. UVA may not cause sunburn but can harm the skin cells and increase the risk of skin cancer.
You can use higher sunscreen with high sun protection factors, but it still may not block these harmful rays. Many sun worshipers believe if they normally get sunburn in two hours, an SPF 20 sunscreen will help prevent sunburn for an extra 20 hours, or 20 times longer exposure.
Ingredients in Sunscreen: What to Look For in Sensitive Skin Sunscreen
