Face Sunscreens: Your Questions Answered by Experts
What is the best facial sunscreen?
The short answer: one that you’ll wear every single day! The long version is that it’s best to use a high SPF broad spectrum face sunscreen with an ultralight texture. And even better if it’s a mineral face sunscreen that can both protect and repair skin, likeEryfotona Actinica. The fast-absorbing SPF 50+ sunscreen includes DNA Repairsomes® to help repair existing sun damage.
What SPF should I use on my face daily?
First, let’s talk about SPF. SPF refers to the sun protection factor against UVB radiation. UVB radiation is the main cause of short-term skin damage like sunburns. Protection ranges from low (from 6 to 10 SPF), medium (15-25), high (30-50), to very high (50+).
Your facial sunscreen should be broad spectrum, meaning that it protects skin from both UVA and UVB rays, and it should also be both water resistant and have an SPF of 30 or higher.
