Here's a few things I think we should know. I got this from Kiehl's Manila Facebook Page.
What is it about the sun that seems to attract rumors and myths? There are so many myths about sunscreen and how best to avoid the damaging effects of UV rays. To clear up any confusion, we took the top ten sun myths and debunked them. Here’s the scoop:
Myth #1: SPF over 30 is no more effective than 30
False: While the difference between SPF 30 and higher formulations is small, there is a difference — and every little bit counts.
Myth # 2: Sunscreens shut out all UV rays
False: Sunscreens let it some UV light, even those labeled SPF 100. Plus, not all sunscreens protect against both UVA and UVB ray. Use a broad-spectrum sun protection to get the most coverage. At Kiehl’s all of our sunscreen formulas protect against both UVA and UVB rays.
Myth #3: I don’t need sunscreen on a cloudy or winter day
False: The sun’s dangerous UV rays are present throughout the day, every day of the year – even on cold, cloudy or otherwise seemingly sunless days. At Kiehl’s we recommend wearing a facial product with SPF every day.
Myth # 4: SPF 30 is twice as strong as SPF 15
False: Higher SPF factors do not proportionately increase the protection provided. SPF 30 does not provide twice as much protection as SPF 15, rather it provides only about 5% more protection.
Myth # 5: I look healthier with a tan
False: What can we say? A tan is a warning sign that your skin has been damaged — even if you never experienced a sunburn. If you’re addicted to that “healthy” glow, stick to self-tanners like our Sun Free Self Tanning Formula. Never go to a tanning booth, which also damages the skin.
Myth #6: Once I achieve a “base tan” I don’t need to wear SPF
False: Whether you are tan or not, your skin can be damaged by UV rays.
Myth # 7: If I sit in the shade, I don’t need to wear sunscreen
False: You can still be exposed to the sun’s rays, as shade doesn’t completely block the sun. Plus, on the beach the sand actually reflects sunlight and increases the amount of UV radiation you’ll receive.
Myth #8: As long as I don’t burn, I’m wearing enough SPF
False: Invisible damage and skin aging are also caused by UVA light, which does not cause reddening or pain.
Myth #9: Sunscreen should be thick and heavy to be effective
False: New technology and the latest ingredients have lead to sunscreen products that are lightweight. For examples, our new Super Fluid UV Defense SPF 50+ goes on light and matte, not gloopy and thick.
Myth #10: If I have covered all my skin with lotion, I’m wearing enough sunscreen
False: Most people don’t use enough sunscreen! You need to apply an ounce of sunscreen to your body to completely cover it; Kiehl’s recommends reapplying every 1 1/2 to 2 hours.
