I cant find any active sunscreen ingredients (uva/uvb) in this sunscreen. You can do MUCH better. www.smartskincare.com/skinprotection/sunblocksDoes anyone have an opinion of this sunscreen or have you tried it? I am needing something more "economical" Jason Family Block Sunbrellas Sun Care -- 4 oz - Vitacost
Are you wearing a wide brim hat outside?? Like at least 5 inches on all sides???Oops I see the list of actives on the link you provided. Just finding them all in one sunscreen may be difficult that is an economical one, but I am willing to pay the price to protect my skin honestly. I thought maybe this one ( Jason ) might be a choice I could do.
Physical SS are about all that some ppl can tolerate, but they don't provide the high PPD needed for protection against UVA (ageing) rays. Most of them only provide from 4-8 PPD....pretty wimpy. 20-35 is better, but can only be provided by chemical or chemical/physical SS like Avene Emulsion orange tube or Bioderma Photoderma MAX.I've heard reviews that Titanium Dioxide and Zinc Oxide based sunscreens are better at protecting. I just bought Clinique City Sheers SPF 25, the only spf ingredients are the Zinc Oxide and Titanium Dioxide. You can also find a "mineral only" sunscreen at any drugstore, they are normally listed for babies. Just try to find the highest amount of zinc possible.
VERY VERY true. Excellent post. You would not paint your mansion with crayons now would you.Believe me, sunscreen is not something you want to scrimp on! "You pay for it now or you pay for it later" UVA damage = wrinkles, splotchy and sagging skin. Get the best you can afford!
I agree. You should NOT scrimp on sunscreen. We can make our own Vitamin C serum & use our special TCA peels and be frugal but we need to make sure we keep our healthy new skin protected from the sun. So use the money you save on serums and moisturizers and spend it on sunblock. I use La Roche-Posay Anthelios XL on my face & body.
