Common Mistakes To Avoid While Applying Sunscreen

Regular use of sunscreens; is it still a debate? Not for those who want their skin clear and glowing! For the rest of them, let's make this very clear: Sunscreen is the most important product of your daily skincare.

However, it's not just about putting any sunscreen on your face; it's about using the right sunscreen accordingly. Whether you're a sunscreen user or a new skincare lover, there are common mistakes that even professional skincare lovers make. So, let's put some light on these mistakes and make sure your skin gets the protection it deserves. Here are 11 common sunscreen mistakes to avoid:

1) Not Applying the Adequate Amount: If you are thinking that a small drop of sunscreen can fight against the skin from sun damage then, think again! To make sure that your skin gets protected against sun damage and tan, it's important to apply a thick layer of sunscreen on the skin, including the neck

2) Here are the Points to note: Put the sunscreen on your two fingers and then apply it on your face and massage it well on the face and neck. Use sunscreen as the final step of your skincare after moisturizing. Reapply every 2-3 hours, or more if you going swimming.

3) Applying Just Before Stepping Out: Don't rush your sunscreen application! It needs time to be absorbed completely. Applying sunscreen right before going out won't protect against sun damage.

4) Not Using the Right Product: Your sunscreen choice matters! Just like other skincare products, select sunscreens based on your skin's needs. Check the ingredients and benefits offered. For optimal results, choose a sunscreen with an SPF of 60 or a minimum of SPF 35, effective UV filters, and skin-loving ingredients like hyaluronic acid or squalene.

5) Applying Only During Summers: Sunscreen isn't a seasonal product! UV rays are active during the whole year, even on cloudy days or during winter. Make sunscreen a daily routine.

6) Not Reapplying: sunscreens can affect your skin, so don't forget to reapply your sunscreen! Apply sunscreen every 2 to 3 hours, especially during harsh sun exposure.

7) Not Applying on the Body: Don't forget about other exposed areas! Apply sunscreen fully to your ears, neck, arms, and legs to prevent sunburn and tanning.

8) Only Considering the SPF: SPF is Important, but it's not the only factor! Choose a wide sector of sunscreen for protection against UVA and UVB rays. Also, look for a high PA rating for UVA protection.

9) Applying sufficient quantity: If you were not sure of the quantity then you can follow 3 finger rule which is taking the sunscreen for full length 3 fingers full length
Not Considering the Filters: Understand your sunscreen's contents! Chemical, physical, and hybrid sunscreens offer different benefits. Read labels carefully to find the best fit for your skin.

10) Relying Only on Sunscreens: Sunscreen is crucial, but it's not foolproof! Pair it with protective clothing, seek shade, and avoid peak sun hours for comprehensive sun protection.

11) Using an Expired Product: Check those expiration dates! Using expired sunscreen reduces its effectiveness, leaving your skin vulnerable. Always check the expiration date before application.
