Spring is here and summer is on its way. That is why it is important to invest in good sunscreen now, to protect you and your family and power you through long days in the sun at pools and parties. The MehrabiMD Safe Skin Spray Ultra SPF 50 with Zinc Oxide is exactly that sunscreen. Not only does it offer easy spray application, but it also offers SPF 50 UVA and UVB broad range sun protection.
The Importance of Sunscreen
Sunscreen is important for a number of reasons. As most dermatologists will tell you, leaving your skin in direct exposure to the sun for sustained periods of time without any protection is one of the most detrimental things you can do to your skin. Even small amounts of exposure can add up over time, causing discoloration of the skin, wrinkling, early aging, and increasing the risk of cancer. While this is especially true of fairer-skinned people, even those with natural tans or naturally dark skin can be sunburned and affected by sun damage. Human skin can only provide a natural SPF of up to 13 or 14, whereas protection of up to SPF 30 or higher is recommended by dermatologists.
SPF Index is a marker of how much protection a sunscreen offers. While lower SPFs of 20 or 30 are sometimes used for the most basic sun protection, in the sunniest parts of the day/year, it is better to have the higher protection provided by SPF 50 sunscreen.
Zinc Oxide is the ingredient in this sunscreen that provides protection from sunburns and sun damage by creating a protective shield from the sun that reflects UV rays away from your skin. Unlike some chemical sunscreens, it is effective from the moment you put it on your skin, and lasts longer.
Broad Spectrum Protection
Broad spectrum protection means protection from both UVA and UVB light, the two types of rays that can cause damage to skin. While some sunscreens only provide protection from one or the other, MehrabiMD Safe Skin Spray is broad spectrum, meaning it protects from all sources of sun related skin damage.
