Fun in the Sun: 15 SPF-Charged Creams to Keep You Protected

Sun’s out and you know what that means? Yes – FUN! But also – safety. As soon as it starts feeling like summer out (even though we should care about these things during the “cuffing season” too), the first thing I think of is unfortunately not the bikinis, but how to properly protect myself. Call me a hypochondriac, but sun, although crucial to the life on Earth, can also be detrimental to our health. Which is usually the case with most things that just feel or taste good in our lives, like candy, fast food and getting our hair washed at the hair salon. It feels like you’re in heaven, getting a spa treatment by angels personally and all. But boy – can those be deadly…

(S-T-R-O-K-E)

Moving on to the skin protection…

According to American Cancer Society, skin cancer is the most common type of cancer. “About 5.4 million basal and squamous cell skin cancers are diagnosed each year & melanoma, the most deadly type of skin cancer, will account for about 76,380 cases of skin cancer in 2016.”

You can protect yourself by:
– Staying out of the sun or by seeking shade between 10 A.M. and 4 P.M. when the sun’s rays are the strongest;
– Wearing a t-shirt;
– Wearing a wide-brimmed hat;
– Wearing sunglasses with 100% UVA & UVB absorption;
– And of course – by wearing a sunscreen.
{Now, you shouldn’t use sunscreen as an excuse to stay in the sun longer, because it won’t protect you from all UV rays. Always be smart about staying in the sun.}

However, although I’m planning on using all of the above-mentioned type of protection, I’ve been also on a mission to find the perfect SPF face cream and I narrowed it down to 15. I know, I know… It’s a pretty wide array of options for a narrowed-down list. These all have glowing reviews and range in prices. So it all comes down to how much you’re actually willing to splurge.
