What makes a good sunscreen?
- It provides broad-spectrum protection from UVA, UVB & PA++ rays.
- SPF should be 30 or higher. Though SPF 30 protects us from 97% of rays, most of us don’t apply enough. Hence choosing an SPF 50 or higher is better.
- The sunscreen should be waterproof, so it does not wear from water or sweat.
- It should have board-approved filters to provide consistent protection.
