Many people don’t know the importance of using a Sunblock. There are many different products on the market it can get confusing. Let’s make it easy….First and foremost you want a Sunblock, not a sunscreen. Just because it has a higher SPF does not make it stronger or better. You need to make sure your Sunblock has one or more of the following ingredients; Zinc Oxide, Titanium Dioxide or Avobenzone. These are the only TRUE sunblockers that actually block UVA and UVB rays and protect you from sun spots / age spots also known as hyperpigmentation / uneven skin tone, hypopigmentation (white spots), skin cancer and damaging your skin to cause premature aging. Also this protects damage that can happen below the skins surface which in turn can cause many different skin conditions, one most dangerous is malignant melanoma.
