I am in a little trouble. Summer has started where I live, and I am addicted to playing cricket, whatever the weather or climate be. From last two weeks, I have noticed that my face color has become darker due to the sun. So, I am a little confused about which sunblock cream to use. I need your suggestion on which cream to use. I do not understand the concept of SPF 25, 30, 50 and 60.
Welcome to icliniq.com.
Sun protection factor or SPF blocks damaging UV rays, which are responsible for skin aging, darkening, sunburn, and malignancy.
I would advise you to use sunscreens that are a multi-spectrum or broad spectrum, which blocks both UV-A and UV-B rays.
Select Sunscreen according to SPF value. SPF number not less than 30 and not more than 50 will serve the purpose.
While going to play, you may apply a generous layer of SPF 50, and for the routine purpose, you may use SPF 30.
Do drink plenty of fluids and wear protective cotton clothing particularly light-colored clothes.
Take care. Have a nice and safe game.
