Choosing sunscreen

Does it really matter what type of sunscreen I use?


Sunscreen comes in a variety of forms including lotion, gel and spray, so there are plenty of different types to choose from. There are also sunscreens made for specific purposes, such as for the scalp, sensitive skin, and for use on babies. Regardless of the type of sunscreen you choose, be sure that you use one that blocks both UVA and UVB rays and that it offers at least SPF 15.
