Let’s talk skincare— it’s on virtually every shelf at the grocery store, at the pharmacy, on department store shelves, and even in some shady stores in big cities. And although labels may be advertising one thing, it’s really hard to know for certain what it is you’re putting onto your skin without actually testing it. Here at Dr. Kenneth Dembny’s office, we know the importance of good skincare and knowing exactly what it is you are putting on your skin— especially when it comes to sunscreen. Here are some things that you should be looking for when you are buying a sunscreen.
One of the most important things you can wear for your skin is a broad spectrum sunscreen. All of our sunscreens that we offer at Dr. Kenneth Dembny office are broad spectrum which means that they will protect you against both UVA and UVB rays which can cause things such as skin cancer, sun spots, and premature signs of aging like fine lines and wrinkles.
Another thing you should be looking for when buying a sunscreen? The critical wavelength which is the main identifier in how much UV-A protection is in the sunscreen you’re about to purchase. Additionally, this number is also one of the best ways for you to identify whether or not the sunscreen is, in fact, broad spectrum.
A Trusted Retailer
You can get online and find different versions of the same skincare or sunscreen product at different prices. And although some of them are being sold from legitimate sources, some of them aren’t. By purchasing from a trusted retailer like Dr. Kenneth Dembny’s office, you can rest assured that you are getting a great product every time.
