It is important to use sunscreen and sunblock to protect your skin from damage caused by the sun's ultraviolet rays. Let's discuss the differences between these products, and which option is right for your skin.

Difference between sunscreen and sunblock:

Sunscreen is a cream that forms a thin layer, due to which the sun's rays cannot penetrate the skin. It protects the skin and protects it from the harmful effects of the sun. Sunblock, on the other hand, forms a thick layer, containing ingredients like titanium dioxide and zinc oxide that block the sun's rays. Due to this, sometimes a white layer may appear on the skin.

What to use:

What to use depends on your skin and your needs. If your skin burns easily or you are allergic to creams, sunblock may be a good option. But if you want a cream that does not wash off in water and lasts even while exercising, then sunscreen is a good option. Make sure, whether sunscreen or sunblock, you reapply it every two hours, especially when you go in the water or are sweating. This will keep your skin safe and protected from the negative effects of sun rays.
