Sunscreen, also known as sunblock, sun cream or suntan lotion, is a lotion, spray, gel, foam, stick or other topical product that absorbs or reflects some of the sun's ultraviolet radiation and thus helps protect against sunburn.
SPF, or Sun Protection Factor,is a measure of how well a sunscreen will protect skin from UVB rays, the kind of radiation that causes sunburn, damages skin, and can contribute to skin cancer.
Sunscreen keeps your skin healthier in other ways as well. It protects sensitive skin against sunburn and it reduces the appearance of sun damage – discolorations and dark spots, sagging or leathery skin, and wrinkles. These protections help your skin maintain a more even skin tone overall.
Dermatologists recommend using sunscreen every day when you are outside, not just during the summer. If you are using sunscreen every day and in the correct amount, a bottle should not last long.
The American Academy of Dermatology recommends that EVERYONE wear sunscreen daily for the safety of their skin
Our “Aisha” Sunscreen lotion is SPF40 and is easily absorbed into the skin. Its safe to apply on the face as well as exposed parts of the body at least 30 minutes before stepping out. Made from Shea Butter which has natural SPF of 4% is safe to use on babies and young children too.
Sunscreens should be applied 30 minutes before sun exposure to allow the ingredients to fully bind to the skin. Reapplication of sunscreen is just as important as putting it on in the first place, so reapply the same amount every two hours.
