The Benefits Of Sunscreen

Sunscreen is not optional! In order to protect your skin, prevent early signs of aging, and even prevent types of skin cancer you simply have to stay protected. Sunscreen is easy to work with, simple to carry with you in a bag or glove compartment, and it helps keep your skin looking and feeling great all season. It doesn’t get better than that! We always opt for artisan small-batch handmade sunscreen because the ingredients and TLC just makes it better!

Understanding SPF

SPF stands for ‘sun protection factor’. This number appears on most all handmade sun screen options and it will help you know how often you need to put on a fresh layer of product. Figuring out how long you can stay in the sun with your favorite handmade sunblock is easy…

Take how long you can normally stay in the sun before burning (use 10 minutes if you aren’t sure) andย multiply that number by the SPF number of your product.

If you normally burn in 10 minutes and your handmade sunscreen is SPF 15, you should be safe for about 150 minutes in the sun!

SPF is not an exact science, so monitor your skin and always apply more often than you think you need to.
