What is a sunscreen?
No matter whether you're staying indoors or outdoors during the day, UV rays are present everywhere as long as there are windows. For this exact reason, sunscreen has found its place in many people's daily skincare routine in recent years. It's a must-have skincare product that should not be skipped as it helps to keep your skin safe against everyday exposure to harmful radiation of UV rays.
Benefits of sunscreens
Apart from protecting your skin from sunburn and reducing the risk of skin cancer, sunscreens are very helpful in reducing the signs of ageing and the appearance of sunspots (also known as age spots) on your skin. UV rays in the sunlight can damage the collagen and connective tissues in your skin, causing your skin to lose elasticity and gain wrinkles in the long run.
How to pick the right sunscreen?
The first thing to consider when you're shopping for sunscreen is to determine your skin type. We have a skin type test to help you determine your skin type, visit the page here! After you know your skin type, you'll also have to choose the SPF amount of your sunscreen. If you're spending a long time outdoors, it's advisable to get sunscreen with higher SPF. On the other hand, if you're staying indoors most of the time, you could opt for a sunscreen with lower SPF, for example, around SPF30. Our WonderDewi Cica Sunscreen comes with SPF50, which is a great option for your everyday use.
Do you need to wear sunscreen indoors?
The short answer is yes. Even though the exposure to UV rays while staying indoors is not as much compared to staying outdoors under the sun, it's best to keep your skin protected at all times. This is because the exposing to the low level of UV rays for a long period of time will also bring harmful effects to your skin.
