Sunscreen FAQs

What should I look for in a sunscreen?

Get a broad-spectrum sunscreen that protects you from both UVA and UVB rays. According to The Skin Cancer Foundation, only broad-spectrum sunscreens can lower your risk for melanomas and skin cancer. Look for a minimum of SPF 30 if you are going outdoors.

How much sunscreen do I need to apply?

You should apply 1 ounce of sunscreen (roughly the amount of a shot glass) all over your face and body. Bear in mind that SPF protection assumes that you’re using the right amount. So, if you get an SPF 50 sunscreen, but only put half an ounce, you are only really getting SPF 25.

What’s the right way to apply sunscreen?

Apply sunscreen at least 30 minutes before going out of the house, so your skin has enough time to absorb it. If you are using a face sunscreen, apply it after skincare and before makeup.

Reapply sunscreen after every four hours! If you don’t want sunscreen to ruin your makeup, consider getting a sunscreen spray or powder sunscreen to “layer” your sun protection.

My makeup already has SPF. Can I skip sunscreen?

Even if your foundation, BB or CC cream has sun protection, you probably apply a very sheer layer. This isn’t enough to significantly block UV damage.

Think of sun protection in makeup as your second layer of defence. They give additional protection, but should never replace sunscreen.

Do I need to wear sunscreen even if I’m indoors?

Yes. UVA rays — which cause pigmentation and early ageing — can penetrate windows and clouds.

What’s the best sunscreen routine for oily skin?

Choose a sunscreen formula that is oil-free, non-comedogenic and non-acnegenic. Gel and water-based formulas will also feel lighter.

If you tend to get breakouts or have sensitive skin, avoid these ingredients: benzophenones (like oxybenzone), cinnamates, and octocrylene, They are usually found in chemical sunscreens.

If you have particularly acne-prone skin, you may want to use sunscreens with zinc oxide or titanium oxide. These are physical sunscreens that block the sunlight rather than being absorbed by the skin. They’re less likely to irritate the skin, but they can feel a bit thicker.

How do I know if my sunscreen has expired?

Most sunscreens will have an expiry date on the bottle. However, you should use up your sunscreen within a year after opening it. Exposure to sun, moisture and extreme heat conditions will cause ingredients to deteriorate and become less effective. Don’t leave sunscreen in the car or indirect heat! Store in your bag or in a cabinet.

The benefits of applying sunscreen?

First and foremost, the most obvious benefit of applying sunscreen regularly is to prevent signs of premature ageing. Because the sun’s UV rays are incredibly harsh on the skin, going out without protection can accelerate signs of skin ageing such as fine lines, wrinkles and hyperpigmentation spots. In addition to protecting your skin from the onset of wrinkles and hyperpigmentation, wearing sunscreen regularly can also protect new moles from forming and becoming full-blown melanomas (aka skin cancer). Furthermore, as continuous exposure to the sun breaks down the skin’s collagen, wearing sunscreen can protect the skin from premature sagging as well.

What SPF should I use?

Generally, dermatologists recommend opting for sunscreens with a sun protection factor of 50+. This is because most people don’t normally apply a generous enough layer anyway. Hence, applying a sunscreen with at least SPF50 will ensure that you will get sufficient sun protection. However, sunscreens that claim to have SPF100 and above are just marketing gimmicks and are not necessary for getting adequate sun protection. Hence, just stick to your SPF50 sunscreens and you’re pretty much set for the day.

Should I apply sunscreen before skincare or makeup?

The answer is somewhere right in the middle. You should be applying your sunscreen after your serum or moisturiser and right before makeup application. Since some sunscreens contain alcohol and can be quite drying on the skin, it is important to protect your skin beforehand with a moisturiser. Also, applying a layer of moisturiser beforehand can help to seal in any moisture and fortify the skin’s moisture barrier. After applying your regular skincare, follow up with a generous layer of sunscreen and apply it onto your face, ears, neck and chest area.

Usually, a nickel-sized amount should be able to cover your entire face and neck area. However, there’s no harm in applying more sunscreen! Since sunscreen tends to melt off in the heat and humidity, always remember to reapply it throughout the day. If you’re wearing makeup, spritz on a hydrating mist to refresh your skin and follow up with a layer of sunscreen.

Sun protection 101: Best sunscreens for face

Photography: Supergoop via Facebook

Need help in finding the right sunscreen? Here’s everything you need to know about sun protectors and the best ones for your skin type.

Hands up if you’re guilty of starting a sunscreen routine too late, or if you’ve (gasp!) never found a need for it. Skincare diehard or not, it’s time to take this wonder product seriously. Not only does it decrease the risk of skin cancer, it also helps to prevent premature ageing, pigmentation and blotchiness. But if you’re baffled by the many labels, don’t fret. We break down everything you need to know about sunscreen, including SPF, PA and the difference between physical and chemical sunblocks.

SUNSCREEN 101

Sunscreens, sunblocks and suntan lotions

First of all, avoid anything called ‘suntan lotion’ like the plague – these have a poor SPF (that’s Sun Protection Factor) and are oils, which don’t shield you from the sun. Both sunscreens and sunblocks are good sun protectants. Expect the latter to have a thicker, chalky consistency due to the use of titanium oxide or zinc oxide as active ingredients.

How high should your SPF be?

SPF measures how well a sunscreen protects you from UVB rays (the cause of sunburn). A minimum of SPF30 is best recommended as it blocks 97% of UV-B rays, though SPF50 is ideal as it blocks 98% of UVB rays. Any higher is said to be false advertising.

Look for broad spectrum

Most sunscreens only protect you from UVB rays – ideally, they should also shield you from UVA rays (these penetrate deep into the skin and can cause premature ageing).

What is PA?

Simply put, PA indicates the level of protection from UVA rays. This is based on the Persistent Pigmentation Darkening Test (PPD), which measures how much UVA skin can be exposed to before darkening. The more plus signs on your PA (this ranges from PA+ to PA+++), the more protection you’ll receive. It’s the reason why Korean sunscreens are regarded as more effective as they often come with these labels.

What’s the deal with chemical or physical blockers?

It’s not just the issue of SPF that’s rucking up controversy. A major topic of debate is the difference between chemical and physical sunscreens. As its name suggests, chemical sunscreens contain oxybenzone, octylcrylen, avobenzone and octinoxate. These work by absorbing UV rays – they enter the skin, get absorbed, and are released as heat.

Physical sunscreens, on the other hand, contain active mineral ingredients like titanium dioxide or zinc oxide. They work as reflectors to deflect UV rays from entering the skin.

The case for chemical blockers

It’s hard to say what’s better for you, as the effects are different for each skin type. Chemical sunscreens are the popular option on the market. These are thinner in consistency and blend easily on the skin, sitting well under makeup. Their formulas are also receptive to the inclusion of other ingredients, like hyaluronic acid, to moisturise skin. Also, they don’t give the notorious white cast of zinc-based sunscreens.

But as the skin absorbs UV rays, it can become overheated, which results in irritation or worsening of dark spots. It’s even said to penetrate your bloodstream – something to think about if you’re not fond of chemicals lingering in your body.

Chemical sunscreens are also not recommended for water sports. Hawaii is banning oxybenzone and octinoxate in 2021 as these are harmful to corals and contribute to coral bleaching.

The case for physical blockers

With natural ingredients and the ability to simply deflect UV rays without absorbing, physical sunscreens are gentler on the skin and less likely to cause skin irritation. The ingredients of zinc oxide and titanium dioxide are also naturally broad spectrum, protecting you from UVA and UVB rays. Unfortunately, they don’t spread as easily and may leave a white cast on skin. But with the beauty industry working fast, physical sunscreens that are as light and blendable as moisturiser already exist in the market.

Application

Apply at the last stage of your skincare routine and you’ll find that it could work well even as a primer. Chemical sunscreens should be applied 20 minutes before stepping outside, while physical ones are absorbed immediately. It’s recommended for you to reapply every two hours if you’re outdoors. Apply two tablespoons per application for optimal protection.

Save face: the best high SPF sunscreens for 365 days of Singapore sunshine (almost) | Vogue Singapore

Sorry to burst your bubble, but the SPF in your make-up alone does not have you covered. Dermatologist and sensitive skincare expert, Dr Hiva Fassihi says you’d need to apply “four to 6 times as much to achieve the SPF, and this would be cosmetically unacceptable.” 

Even during quarantine (aka Circuit Breaker if you’re in Singapore) where some of us might have found going barefaced utterly liberating, it’s important to note that a broad spectrum SPF sunscreen should never be neglected. And as if we didn’t have clammy skin to contend with (looking straight at you: balmy, humid climate), there’s the concern of UVA and UVB rays, pollution, dust, and even increased exposure to electronic devices such as tablets, mobiles and computers, that places skin in an even more vulnerable position. What are UVA rays again? While UVA rays may not cause sunburn, they can result in long-term damage to the skin with  melanomas, ageing, pigmentation, sun sensitivity and the aggravation of oily and acne-prone skin are all symptoms of exposure to UVA rays. To protect your skin against these UVA rays which are present year round, Dr Fassihi recommends wearing “sun protection daily as part of your skincare routine, regardless of how sunny it appears outside.” 

Supergoop’s director of product development, Sofia Gracia says, “for daily protection, the minimum recommended SPF level is SPF 30.” Anything below SPF 30, including SPF 15, won’t be enough to shield you from the sun’s UVB rays, and anything above SPF 50 lulls us into a false sense of all-day protection. “Since no SPF lasts all day, we always encourage everyone to reapply their SPF every two hours,” says Gracia. So whether you’re FaceTiming from your home office, doing yoga on your balcony, or popping out for a quick coffee, generous application of sunscreen is a must.

P.S., don’t forget your ears, décolletage, and hands.

Getting the Best Sunblock and Sunscreen

Choosing an effective sunblock and sunscreen would depend on their SPF and PA levels. SPF or Sun Protection Factor is the key measurement on how well your sunscreen would protect your skin from UVB rays. These rays emit the radiation that can cause sunburns, skin damage and even skin cancer.

Do you need Sunscreen in Singapore

In Singapore, we are known to have one of the highest UV index score all year round due to our proximity to the equator. So we are always exposed to harmful sunrays as the sun intensity peaks in mid day.

The sun rays contain UV lights radiation, namely UVA and UVB and are invisible to the naked eye.

UVA aka Tanning rays : These sunrays penetrate deep under the skin (dermis) usually leading to premature aging of the skin, pigmentation and wrinkling (photoaging), and suppression of the immune system.

UVB : These sunrays burn the outer layer of the skin and is known for playing a key role in the development of skin cancer.

How to read PA ratings

PA ratings are usually followed by + signs. These ratings have been developed in Japan to represent how much UVA protection your sunblock and sunscreen has. UVA are known as the sun’s silent killers that causes your skin to turn your skin brown and penetrate deeply on your skin. To enlighten you further, here are what these + signs mean:

PA+ = Some UVA protection.

PA++ = Moderate UVA protection.

PA+++ = High UVA protection.

PA++++ = Extremely High UVA protection

90,000 Top 10 Sunscreens – 2020 Ranking (Top 10)

Women who don’t want to age ahead of time know that sunscreen is a must-have for summer skincare. And for the face, it is generally recommended to use SPF creams all the time! This will help protect against the damaging effects of ultraviolet radiation and prevent photoaging. However, not every product is capable of providing the body with high-quality protection, so choosing the best sunscreen should be approached competently!

How to choose sunscreen

First of all, you need to remember that ultraviolet rays are different , namely UVA, UVB and UVC.However, the latter hardly pass through the ozone layer, so we only have to defend ourselves against the first two. Many modern creams, which are also called sunscreens – sunscreens, can save the skin from the effects of both UVA and UVB rays at once. As a rule, manufacturers write such information in large print on the packaging – be sure to pay attention to this!

In addition, Sun Protection Factor , known to everyone as SPF, plays an important role. And if for a walk in a shady city park there will be enough cream with an SPF of 15-20, then for relaxing on the beach and even more so for a vacation in a hot tropical resort, you will need more protection, and it is better to choose a sunscreen with an SPF level of 30-50.If you use Korean products, remember that in Asia the PA marking is adopted – an analogue of the European SPF. And instead of numbers after PA, pluses are affixed, and the more there are, the higher the degree of protection.

As for composition , it is great if titanium dioxide and zinc oxide (physical filters) or avobenzone, benzophenone, bisctrizole (chemical filters) are present in the cream. Please note – if the cream contains titanium dioxide and stone seed oil, then the declared protection spectrum will be lower, since stone seed oil changes the refractive index of light with titanium particles.Mineral oils, on the other hand, enhance UV absorption and increase the protection factor.

There is an opinion that if we multiply the figure of the SPF protection index (15, 30, 50) by 4, then we get the time of protected exposure to the sun. But this is not the case. Any sunscreen is effective within 2 hours and no more.

Nuances of application

Of course, you need to be able not only to choose a quality product, but also to use it competently. So, not a single sunscreen will protect the skin throughout the day – it must be renewed, especially after bathing! And sunscreen should not be applied directly on the beach, but 15-30 minutes before going outside, so that the chemical filters have time to start their protective effect.

In addition, the tube with Sanskrin itself should not lie on a sun lounger under the scorching sun – put it in a bag so that the filters do not lose their effectiveness!

Single serving for the body – at least 25 ml of cream.

Cream with SPF is not used at night, as after a certain time, some sunscreen filters can have a negative effect on the skin.

And to decide what kind of sunscreen to take for the face and body, our rating of the best, compiled taking into account the opinions of professionals and reviews of ordinary users, will help you.

Rating of the best sunscreens

rating top 10 according to KP

The use of sunscreen is desirable all year round, because the harm of ultraviolet radiation has been proven by numerous studies. Traditionally, people remember about such a cosmetic product only closer to summer, when the amount of sunlight increases significantly, as well as going on vacation. The most unpleasant feature that UV rays can present is the gradual appearance of age spots. You may not protect your face for several years, but in the future this is fraught with the obligatory appearance of age spots.

There are three types of UV radiation:

UBA – the same year-round waves that are not afraid of cloudy weather and clouds. They are able to penetrate into the deep layers of the skin, provoking skin aging and pigmentation.

UVB – penetrate into the layers of the skin if you are directly in the open space (clouds and glass are quite an obstacle for them), can affect the upper layers of the skin, increasing the risk of redness, burns and cancer.

UVC are the most dangerous waves, but at the same time they are absorbed by the atmosphere, so you should not be afraid that they will penetrate into the ozone layer.

There are several nuances to consider when choosing a sunscreen. The first is filters that provide that very reflective sun protection for the skin. Among them, two types are distinguished – physical and chemical (they are also mineral and organic). The physical ones include two components – zinc oxide and titanium dioxide. But there are a huge number of chemical filters, you can’t list all of them, but here are some of them: oxybenzone, avobenzone, octocrylene, octinoxate, etc. Pay attention to the SPF protection index – sun protection factor, the number indicated next means what percentage of type B sun rays can block this cream.For example, the action of SPF 50 protects the skin from UV radiation by 98-99%, provided that you apply it tightly and renew it in time. A cream with an SPF 30 value is already 96%, and SPF 15 blocks 93% of UVB radiation.
