Choose the Right SPF When choosing a sunscreen, the many different SPF levels and options can be confusing. Some formulas start out at SPF 4, while others can go as high as SPF 100. If you’re wondering, SPF stands for Sun Protection Factor, which denotes the amount of protection that you’re getting from the sun. The American Academy of Dermatology recommends that most people wear a minimum of SPF 30 daily. If you’re light-skinned or prone to burning easily, you should bump up your protection to SPF 50. However, it’s important to remember that you can’t ever be protected 100 percent from the sun unless you’re directly out of the sunlight. Broad-Spectrum Formula Selecting a sunscreen that offers broad-spectrum protection is vital. Why? Because wearing a sunscreen that offers both UVA and UVB is the best way to protect your skin. UVA rays penetrate deep into the skin’s surface, otherwise known as the dermis, and are responsible for premature skin aging and wrinkling. UVB rays affect the top layer of your skin, causing sunburn and in some people, skin cancer and melanoma. By selecting a broad-spectrum sunscreen formula, you can be sure that the sunscreen will protect your skin from both UVA and UVB rays. Of course, all of the Rocky Mountain Sunscreen formulas are broad-spectrum, so you can be sure that our hypoallergenic formula will protect your skin well. Choose the Right Ingredients Once you’ve ensured that you understand the importance of broad-spectrum sunscreen, it’s also important to read the ingredients. Some popular sunscreen ingredients, such as oxybenzone, can cause skin irritation and other issues, so it’s best to look for a formula that uses a different active ingredient. Rocky Mountain Sunscreen is oxybenzone-free and uses a gentle formula that’s safe for kids and adults alike. By understanding the ingredients that can be harmful to your skin, you can make an informed decision on what’s best for your needs, as well as your family’s. As the temperatures heat up and you begin to spend more and more time outside, having an effective sunscreen by your side that you can trust is extremely valuable.
