• What should we look for when buying sunscreen?
That’s an important question. There are many things that are should be present in a sunscreen, We will see each one by one:

This means that sunscreen provides protection against both UVA and UVB.
UVA rays penetrate into the skin and cause premature aging and wrinkles. UVB rays burn superficial layers of your skin and cause tanning.

Select sunscreen with coverage of at least SPF 30 or higher, this is because the more the SPF factor the more it will shield your skin from UV rays.
