With summer almost knocking on your door, you need to stock up on your sunscreens. During summer it’s a kind of a must have stuff to protect your skin. It can avert any kind of damages caused by ultraviolet rays (UV). A few years back we used to check the SPF label while shopping for sunscreen. However new studies have revealed that while UVA (ultraviolet A) can enhance the chances of skin cancer and gets deep into our skin thereby enhancing the appearance of wrinkles, surprisingly this is not the reason behind the sunburn.
According to recent development we need a sunscreen with multi spectrum protector or a broad spectrum protector for tackling the pair of UVA & UVB. The fundamentals elements of broad spectrum protection comprises of ecamsule (Mexoryl SX), cinnamates (octylmethylcinnamate and cinoxate),avobenzone (Parsol 1789), titanium dioxide, benzophenones (oxybenzone),sulisobenzone, salicylates & zinc oxide.
