Dubai, United Arab Emirates - May 15, 2019: Vitamin D is an essential that we all need, to vitalise our bodies, but being out and about in the sunshine means you're being exposed to damaging UVA and UBV rays. Luckily, SPF, our new best friend during the summer months, is here to help protect us.
SPF, Sun Protection Factor creams can be categorized based on their capacity to absorb the sun's ultra-violet rays. Eg. An SPF 15 can readily absorb about one-fifteenth of the sun's rays as opposed to an SPF 30 cream that offers double the protection. Hence, it is essential you choose your SPF creams wisely.
We have put together our must-have sunscreens that should become a daily part of your skincare regime. – Take your pick!
