Everything you need to know about Sun Care

Hey there, sun worshippers! ☀️ Ready to soak up those rays while keeping your skin protected and glowing? Let's dive into the world of suncare and find out how to keep your skin happy and healthy under the sun.

UVA vs UVB: Know your rays

First things first, what's the deal with UVA and UVB rays? UVA rays penetrate deep into the skin, causing premature aging and wrinkling, while UVB rays are responsible for those pesky sunburns. The best sunscreens offer protection against both, so you can enjoy the sunshine worry-free.

What is the best sunscreen?

So, what should you look for in a sunscreen? Opt for one that provides broad-spectrum protection against both UVA and UVB rays. If you're planning on hitting the pool or beach, go for a water-resistant formula to keep your sunscreen in place while you splash around. Organic Shop Sun Body Lotions offer UVA + UVB protection and are water resistant for up to 30 minutes.

What sunscreen factor should I be using?

Confused about which SPF factor to choose? Don't worry, we've got you covered! For everyday wear, SPF 30 offers a good balance of protection for most skin types. If you're spending extended periods in the sun or have fair skin, consider bumping up to SPF 50 for added reassurance against sun damage.

When should I wear sunscreen?

Spoiler alert: sunscreen isn't just for beach days! It's important to wear sunscreen every day, especially when the sun is shining bright. Whether you're running errands or lounging in the backyard, make sure to protect your skin from harmful UV rays.

How often should I reapply my sunscreen?

Sunscreen isn't a one-and-done deal. Remember to reapply every 2-3 hours, especially if you're sweating or swimming. Organic Shop's suncare products make it easy to stay protected and enjoy your time in the sun without worrying about sunburn.

The best sunscreen for oily, dry and normal skin types?

When it comes to specific skin needs, it can be tricky to figure out which sunscreen is for you. You might even be thinking, "Sunscreen? For my specific skin needs? Say what?" But hey, we're all about giving our skin the VIP treatment it deserves, right? Just like we tailor our skincare routine to tackle our unique skin concerns, why don’t we do the same with our sunscreen?

Sunscreen for oily skin

If you have oily skin woes, look for sunscreens that contain additional ingredients to regulate sebum production. Why not try the Organic Shop Sunscreen Day Face Cream 30 SPF for Oily Skin that contains Zinc PCA to control oil production.

Sunscreen for dry skin

Dry skin craving some moisture love? You're in luck! Look for sunscreens that contain nourishing and moisturising ingredients, our Organic Shop Sunscreen Day Face Cream 30 SPF Normal to Dry Skin and Organic Shop Sunscreen Day Face Cream 50 SPF Normal to Dry Skin both contain moisturising ingredients such as Glycerin and Niacinamide to keep skin hydrated and moisturised!

Sunscreen for normal skin

If you have normal skin, try the organic shop Organic Shop Sunscreen Day Face Cream 30 SPF Normal to Dry Skin or the Organic Shop Sunscreen Day Face Cream 50 SPF Normal to Dry Skin.

More Ways to Show Your Skin Some Love

In addition to sunscreen, there are plenty of other ways to care for your skin in the sun. Seek shade during peak sunlight hours, cover up with lightweight clothing, and don't forget to accessorise with a cute hat and sunglasses for extra protection. If you do happen to catch a little too much sun, soothe your skin with moisturising after sun care products, like our Organic Shop Hydrating and Calming After Sun Lotion for some much-needed relief.
