May is Melanoma Awareness Month!

What is the ideal SPF coverage in a sunscreen, and is it worth it to buy 100 SPF?

The truth about sunscreen is that there is much more that we should be paying attention to than just the SPF Finding a sunscreen that is water resistant and that is broad spectrum, meaning that it blocks two types of rays: UVA and UVB. Both of these are extremely harmful to the skin. There are two types of sunscreens, chemical and mineral. Chemical sunscreens penetrate your skin and mineral sunscreens sit on top of the skin. Generally speaking, mineral sunscreen is preferred. If a sunscreen has an SPF rating of 30, then it will block 97% of rays when applied correctly. After 30 SPF, the difference in protection is very small. If price point is important to you, then choosing a broad spectrum 30 SPF sunscreen will certainly be sufficient. Reapplication of sunscreen every 2 hours is also a vital part of maximizing your sunscreen’s ability to protect your skin and prevent skin cancer.
