One topic on sunscreen that doesn’t get enough attention is sunscreen for people who have pale skin. There was a recent study in JAMA Dermatology which explains that people who are sensitive to sun, particularly those with pale skin, shouldn’t rely on sunscreen alone. To stay safe from UV rays, people who are sensitive to the sun should also wear large brim hats, stay in shaded areas and wear sunglasses. When purchasing sunglasses, we recommend sunglasses that offer 99 to 100 % protection of both UVA and UVB light.
Sunscreen Protection in Make-up
You may hear beauty / skincare bloggers state that if you own a foundation that has SPF 15 or higher, you can do without sunscreen. However, the SPF found in these beauty products aren’t sufficient and should never replace your sunscreen. Dermatologists say that this goes the same for SPF moisturizers. While these products shouldn’t replace your sunscreen, dermatologists do recommend that you use them in conjunction with your sunscreen for extra protection.
