Experts are saying about Your Sunscreen Safe For You, or Not
New Delhi: You may have seen many such sunscreen ads that say that your skin is completely safe in the sunlight by putting sunscreen. But do you know that all the sunscreens do not have the ability to protect the skin from UVA and UVB. A dermatologist has recently revealed this fact.
UV radiation is very harmful to the skin. It is believed that sunscreen protects your skin from UVA and UVB. There are so many sunscreens in the market that you can easily go to the sun by putting on a skin. But the doctor says something else about this.
What Doctor Say–
Dermatologist Dr. Shirin Fertado says that often we have patients with many allergies who say that we apply the sunscreen of a good company with high sun protection factor-SPF, but still sun allergy and pigmentation is not correct.
In Dr. Shirin’s say that you are putting high SPF sunscreen, it is not a guarantee that your skin is completely safe from UVA and UVB.
What does the FDA–
In this case, the FDA had said in 2007 that the SPF is just Sunburn Protection Factor. This shows that these UV rays, which cause sunburn or redness, will save them only. It does not save you directly from the UVA
Dr. Shirin said that SPF 15 blocks 93% UVB radiation and SPF 30 only 97 percent UVB radiation. Anyways, High SPF Products are not compatible.
Dr. says that the second factor depends on how much sunscreen you have on the skin. The advice given is only about 20 to 25 percent of the amounts it is used. The first spoon i.e. 3 ml should be applied on one hand. 1 whole spoon should be used on face, neck, feet, chest, back If you put so much sunscreen then the skin will be properly protected.
Vitamin D’s Source–
UVB radiation is responsible for 90 percent of vitamin D in the skin. There is also debate on this that people due to SPF are lacking in Vitamin D. It is also being researched that people who use sunscreen are lacking vitamin D or not.
