Sunscreen 101

Everybody’s talking about sunscreen and SPF these days so we figured we’d give you the low down on it! If you’re confused about sun protection, you’re not alone. We’ve done some digging and uncovered the best SPF products you can shop TODAY!

Let’s begin with the basics – What is SPF and what does it stand for?

SPF stands for Sun Protection Factor, and is how we measure the protection from the sun’s UVB rays. SPF 15, for example, means you would have to stay out in the sun 15 times longer than if you were wearing no sunscreen at all before getting burned.

What happens if you don’t wear sunscreen? 

The best way to keep your skin looking young is to protect it from the harmful rays of the sun. Sunscreen is an essential part of good skincare and everyone under the sun should wear it. If not, here are a couple of things that can happen to your skin: Premature aging and wrinkling, skin damage, dry skin, and skin cancer just to name a few.

There are a lot of options when it comes to picking out a product for sunscreen so we’ve tested some of our top sellers. Here are our picks for the best SPF products
