Best way to protect your skin from premature aging, sun sensitive skin, unwanted tanning & sun rashes.
Sunscreen is important factor in maintaining healthy & youthful skin.
Make sure the sunscreen blocks both UVA and UVB rays. These types of sunscreens, called broad-spectrum sunscreens, contain more active ingredients. Ideally a sunscreen should also be hypoallergenic and noncomedogenic so it doesn't cause a rash or clog the pores, which can cause acne. Best protection is achieved by application 15 to 30 minutes before exposure to the sun. During summer use the highest SPF you can stand to use around SPF 45 range , especially for days with a lot of sun exposure. However I strongly encourage you to use at least SPF 15 everyday.
For easier body application you could always buy a spray formula & Gel or Lotion based formula for facial skin. Lotions are less thick, spread more easily and are less greasy.
Its always hard to get rid of tan on ethnic skin that tans easily under the sun. Its best to take measures to avoid it, especially during the summer months.
