Of course when heading down the sunscreen isle, people reach for the highest SPF they can find. Why? It's because they think this means the sunscreen will last longer. However, this is completely untrue. SPF doesn't indicate the product's ability to shield from cancer-causing UVB rays and UVA rays - which are linked to causing wrinkles and aging skin.
What's your best way to choose a sunscreen? It is recommended to seek out sun protection that is labeled "Broad Spectrum," which means it covers both UVA and UVB rays and a SPF of 30. Why the lower SPF? While a SPF of 15 screens out only about 93% of UVB light, a SPF of 30 filters out 97% - and any higher SPFs don't offer much more of a benefit.
Dr. Bunkis reminds that reapplication is still very important. If you want sunblock to really protect your skin and prevent sun damage then you should reapply every two hours. The MD Sun Protection is Broad Spectrum, SPF 30 and also offers a silky-matte finish so that you don't experience that greasy-white feel! The Sun Protection is a great multi-tasker, often being used as a priming moisturizer women put on under their make-up.
