What is SPF?

SPF stands for sun protection factor and measures the protection a skin care product offers from the sun’s rays. To make things simpler, SPF signifies the amount of time a product like sunscreen can keep your skin protected.

Do you need it throughout the year?

Yes! You might think that the sun shines bright during the summers and while that’s true, what’s also a fact is that we never lose the sun at any point of the year. Hence, you should be relying on SPF at every given point. The sun emits UV rays irrespective of the cold or hot weather. You’d be surprised but UV rays can actually penetrate clouds and even glass. In fact, it is during the winters that your skin is overtly sensitive towards UV rays and that should be reason enough for you to pay attention to SPF all through the year.
