How To Use Sun Block - Bare Skin Care

All sunblocks are not created equal. A survey done several years ago reviewed hundreds of sun blocks, and found only eight (8) of them actually contained the ingredients they specified.

The climate where you live can affect the sunblock you use. For instance, I found that in Arizona, where I live, an SPF of 30 is not strong enough to prevent a burn. I use DNA Control Sun Block, available on our Bare Skin Care web site, which has an SPF of 40. If you have darker skin and live where the sun is less intense, you can get by with a 30 SPF, but why take the chance.

And remember, sun blocks do not last more than two hours, when they must be reapplied. Also, things like sweating and water sports can decrease the effectiveness of sun blocks.

Sunburn most commonly happens between 10 am and 3 pm, when ultraviolet (UV) rays are at their strongest. Wear sunscreen with a sun protection factor (SPF) of 40 or greater, when you expect to be out in the sun for more than 15 minutes (a little sun is good for you). Ladies will also benefit by wearing facial makeup containing SPF. Sunlight can damage the sensitive cells of the macula (the central part of the eye that is responsible for most of our vision), so, be sure to wear sunglasses (pick shades that block 99% of UV-A and UV-B rays), and wear a wide-brim hat. Physical sun blocks like hats and clothing work, too.

Our Bare Skin Care Program For Hyperpigmentation is our Best Seller Program.

Hyperpigmentation, Melasma, brown spots and excess pigment are not only the most frequent complaints but some of the difficult problems to deal with.

Bleaching agents do not work by themselves. One must bring the pigment to the surface of the skin to remove it. To do this, a Retin-A like productsuch as Bare Skin Care Vitamin "A" Serum is necessary, along with the many bleaching agents in our Program For Hyperpigmentation.

For the best in pigment removal, none exceeds our products in this program.

Note: this program must be used as directed in the instructions to be maximally effective.
